I’ve long advocated for wearing boots in summer , and generally feel that three styles work best for warm weather wear: Short boots, light-colored boots, and Western-influenced styles. These Frye Carmen Wovens have been worn dozens of times since I snagged them in the spring, and hit ALL THREE MARKS. They are so comfy that I actually sigh every time I slip them on, and I fully intend to wear them year-round. Bonus: They work beautifully with my Boden-does-the-“Pretty-Woman”-polo-scene dress. Unintentional, but happy-making.
I’ve worn this blazer and dress together before, but am almost certain the combo never made it onto the blog. It brings me so much joy when an item I’ve had for ages (long-ago thrifted blazer) turns out to be a perfect color match for a newer item (year-old dress). I feel like my clothes have found their life partners when this happens. Because I’m a goof like that.
Anyone else had the experience of finding items in your closet that unexpectedly match? Or are you more mindful about which colors come in and out of your wardrobe?
I love this tunic so hard with its quirky print and darling a-line shape … but the pockets never quite sat right. So, much as it pained me to de-pocket ANYTHING, I sewed them shut and now when I wear the tunic I look a lot less like I’m smuggling baby bunnies at my hips. I think it’ll get loads more wear now post-pocket-adjustment.
Made any tweaks to your wardrobe items lately? Anything in the mending pile that needs a change to make it more wearable?
