Silk Pajama Blouse + High Waist Denim

stripes Fancy enough for a girls night out, and comfy enough for a girls night out in your 30’s.

There I was, naked, standing in front of a row of colorful pieces that have accumulated over many years through careful choosing, or on complete whims. I had no time to waste and I was starting to get the first signs of anxiety. It was my daily battle. My wardrobe was my enemy. Tonight was girls night out – and I had nothing to wear.

Then I found my savior, in the form of a colorful striped pajama blouse. A button down blouse with denim will always be my favorite, and the fact that it looks and feels like pajamas is just a bonus. Paired with my go-to (seriously I wear them constantly) jeans, and my satin ankle pumps, I felt fancy enough for my girlfriends and comfy enough for what would end up being a night of a whole lot of eating. Not saying I can’t still turn up like I used to but…sometimes in your 30’s you’d just rather have girl talk and good food – lots and lots of food 🙂

We went to Beatrix in Fulton Market for dinner – which was nice because we had some Vegans in the group and they had a cauliflower steak they liked. I recommend the Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts, and the Ravioli with ricotta – so so good. For dessert we stopped at Bombobar and got a bunch of everything but the donuts were my favorite.

The conversation ran the spectrum from manifesting our lives with our innate supernatural powers, to debating whose family was the craziest. Returned home later with a full stomach and a fed soul. Hoping for many more nights like these <3

  • That look when...ALL your friends tell you (after you ask them, for research obv) that your best quality is that you are ‘REAL and RELATABLE’ and at first I took it as meaning i was not ‘aspirational’ as Fashion Bloggers are supposed to be (are they? I don’t know I’m rambling now) but now I’m thinking....is that actually such a bad thing?? I mean I would hope I’m real...Isn’t being real aspirational these days?

  • We shot this picture a few weeks ago because Tom’s uncle was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and we wanted to cheer him up (Adam and I made the sign and his other uncle made special bracelets) since then I’ve learned of even more friends of mine who have been diagnosed with cancer and it is just mind boggling how you can be so young and healthy and yet still be faced with it. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. I felt like sharing this pic (even though I look possessed) because sometimes we get so into our own heads about our lives, our own needs and wants - and this is just a reminder that if you have your health, you really have it all ❤️
  • I’ve had a love hate relationship with my living room paint color since we moved in to this house 7 years ago. I almost painted it all white this month but chickened out last minute - what do you guys think? Paint it or nah?
  • Gym update: Not there...
My mind is always running though, does that count???
