Thanks for all your sweet notes on yesterday’s post! I was reading them on my phone as I walked the NY Now trade show with my mom in search of new goodies (I trust her taste more than anyone’s!). We found a few cute things here and there but mostly it was a reminder that a lot of the products I want to decorate with just don’t exist yet… and it’s up to me to make them! Here’s what I wore for a day of wandering in search of hidden gems:
First of all, these are Old Navy jeans and they cost — wait for it — $32. The wash is great (as close to navy blue as denim gets) but I’m most excited that I don’t have to hem them! Hear that? It’s the sound of petite girls everywhere rejoicing.
I’ve been layering these two necklaces a lot lately. The first is my monogrammed necklace from Elizoebeth Jensen and the second is a map necklace from Three Jane. The designer Katie is an incredible new friend of mine and I couldn’t be more in love with the personal touch behind every piece she designs. One side of my necklace features a map of my hometown in Connecticut with a tiny diamond for where I grew up and the other side is a map of our neighborhood in Nantucket with a matching diamond for our family home there. How awesome is that?!
I don’t know about you but I live for a good gray t-shirt. I have one from American Apparel that I “borrowed” from a friend in high school and it’s super soft from years of wear! When Old Navy asked to see how I’d style a simple t-shirt and jeans, I knew it was time to scoop up a new gray t-shirt that I’ll wear thin in the years to come. I love the drape front on this one — girlier than the unisex number I have from high school and roomy enough for a post-dinner food baby. 😉 This has kind of been the summer of Old Navy t-shirts for me… and I’m totally cool with that.
