jammy time

i saw regina george wearing army pants and flip flops, so i bought army pants and flip flops….

last week at the st. lucia concert at city winery, i saw a chic pea wearing a dark printed pajama top. she easily stood out against a sea of black and had paired it simply half tucked with a ponytail, skinny jeans and some western style booties…it was all just working. while her bag and booties were very trendy, the black made them feel accessible enough that even i could pull the look off. so of course i did what one does in the age of mobile mania– i ordered most of her outfit promptly in the cab ride home. below are the three winners from my quest for a pajama top, plus other less expensive options by express, zara and nordstrom rack.

get her whole look below…

1– silk button-up top, j.crew

2– juliet silk pajama top, cinq a sept

3– liana silk pajama blouse, l’agence

4– “ori” satin lipstick, tom ford

5– huxley booties, topshop

6– kendall distressed skinny jeans, grlfrnd

7– mini johnny bag, danse lente

8– compass ring, retrouvai

9– bee pinky ring, mejuri

beat the heat

Whelp. In the blink of an eye, it’s already August in nyc. Cue steamy subways, daily afternoon thunderstorms, painfully frigid office buildings, and for me, and any other curly haired manhattanites out there, a hot mess of hair frizz. Most days my hair has been resembling a giant puff ball– and efforts to blow it out in an unairconditioned 5th story walk up just result in the need for a second shower. 

For now, I’m throwing in the towel, and following in the vein of these wiser women….
