Print of the week

I am just absolutely besotted by the glorious pattern on this top by designer Gabriela Hearst, who has created many items this season that are all kinds of out of my price range.

It’s the little things

tool bag

I don’t quite know that I have any business buying a  toolbag, but this one is so great-looking I’m certain there must be some use I could put it to. Dog toy receptacle, perhaps?

Top 5 of the week

A good pair of slouchy trousers is just about the best thing ever: not only are they as comfortable as they are flattering, but they have a way of making anything you pair them with look that much cooler. Plus, they work with everything from sneakers to clogs to heels. I miss wearing them in the summer when it’s too hot to, and so today, in celebration of the fact that it was 68 degrees when I woke up this morning, I bring you the following quite stellar pairs. First up: these have a high waist and a very, very, very, subtle navy and grey check, which is fun.

Hope makes their super-baggy chino in a few colors, but I like this eggshell hue best.

track pants

These have an easy elastic waist—ankles too—and remind me of my favorite classic Gabi Trousers from Maria Cornejo, except that they’re from Madewell and cost a whole lot less.

slouchy army

I live in my super-light slouchy army pants from The Great. I wear them as I type. No lie.

drop rise jeans

Technically, these are jeans, but the cut is so excellently trouser-y that I think they work just fine here.

Things I bought, things I want

I have desired this skull & crossbones pendant by James Colarusso approximately forever. It is the only skull and crossbones I’ve ever felt like I could wear and still feel like myself: the blurred-out effect softens the menacing imagery, and turns it into something quite beautiful, in an offbeat way.

You’ve got to click through to see the picture with the model to get a better sense of the dimensions of this bag, with which I am completely obsessed: it’s like a wee pouch that has been blown up to serious handbag/tote proportions. Like, I’m pretty sure you could fit a laptop in it.

stripe heart dress

Again, click through to get a close-up view, this time of the print on this pretty shirtdress: it’s all striped hearts: so cute—but not cutesy—and entirely chic.
