Shortalls and cut-off denim shorts are my go-to weekend attire. I bought these AE shortalls last spring thinking I’d probably wasted my money and would rarely wear them…but I find myself grabbing them for all sorts of casual occasions. Not to mention they are beyond comfortable! Now if I could only find boyfriend shorts that fit like the bottom half of these shortalls!
Any recommendations of brands to try with looser boyfriend style legs but don’t have mom-jean-butt?? Most I’ve tried that appear to be boyfriend end up being tight on my thighs and loose in my waist.
Have I mentioned yet how stoked I am that there is a Madewell in Birmingham? Finally I can stop the mass shipment/return cycle from ordering stuff and never knowing what size to get. I grabbed this tank recently (they fit 100x better than their scoop tanks from last summer…so much I’m thinking of getting a 2nd in a solid color) from a quick trip into the store right after our arrival into our new city.
Now let’s talk about these Madewell lace ups!! I wanted them oh-so-badly last summer and they either sold out or recalled them…I don’t 100% remember. I snatched a pair up as soon as they came back out this year. I will be honest…they are not the comfiest shoes for lots of walking situations (little to no padding on the sole) but gosh darn-it they are the best looking lace-ups out there for under $75 (in my opinion). I kinda want them in black too…but that my be too much. As a rule, I try to not buy the same things in different colors (expect tees) because you typically will only wear the one you bought first and then the 2nd will collect dust in your closet. We all know I have zero extra room in this new closet.
I’ve been considering another capsule wardrobe but I find summer the hardest since I cannot wear shorts or denim to work. I fear it would just be 30 dresses in my capsule. Having purged so much already has been pretty liberating and I find myself wearing a lot of what I have in my closet (keeping winter stuff in the basement closet to allow for extra room and easier view of what I have).
This Madewell Transport tote is a great carry all and one of my favorite gift from my Mom/Dad/Sister. On this beautiful Saturday…my next stop was the Pepper Place Farmer’s Market (which I’ll be recapping on tomorrow’s post and takes place very Saturday in Birmingham from 7AM-12PM) so it’ll be handy for toting around my camera, any goods I get from the market, and my everyday needs (wallet, lip gloss, etc.).
