everlane silk blouse // favorite jeans (on sale!) // everyday necklace // vintage belt // longchamp tote // dandy flats
"Blue jeans are the most beautiful things since the gondola."
a proclamation from the one and only DV, just the thing to take us into spring.
here's my updated review: i'm wearing the white/blush version in the S. it's still a smidge long in the sleeves, but the slimmer-fitting areas are in the shoulders and through the arm. the fit is straight and somewhat slouchy through the torso, which i quite like for the breezy drape (always, always a fan of clothing that fits beautifully before and after a big meal!). the hem hits me at high hip, so it's the perfect length for leaving untucked/tucking in. i'm really feeling more of a tucked-in silhouette this spring. many readers were concerned about sheerness – it is exactly 'slightly sheer', so in my opinion, no need for a layering tank underneath.
some thoughts on how my wardrobe has evolved in the last year or so: after the latest round of spring cleaning, much of what remains are all variations on a uniform theme. i'm certainly not a true minimalist, but it feels good in a sartorial zen kind of way to get dressed most mornings without too much wavering. the right shoes make such a difference: these days, my go-tos are the dandy flats that strike just the right balance in comfort and style.
for those of you considering the EL silk blouses, i hope the updated review is helpful! what are your foundation pieces for spring?
