Apple bottoms

Today's quick post is another outfit of old favorites. I bought this jacket what feels like eons ago, and it's still hanging on to dear life. The fruity pants were a fun find from two Springs past, and I keep hoping J.Crew will come out with more whimsical prints. Metallic shoes would've been better to break up this monochromatic look, but I had left mine at the office.

I received these sunglasses as part of a gift box, never expecting to love them as much as I do. I have a fairly flat nose which results in the dreaded downward creeping of most eyepieces. For the longest time I wore sunglasses that rested on my cheeks, actually thinking it was a grand solution. It wasn't til I heard from my friend Ping that cheek resting is a recipe for wrinkles - eep! I was surprised at how well this style fit - they sit firmly atop my nose bridge leaving a small gap above my cheeks (except when smiling...but I'll accept wrinkles in exchange for reasons to smile). The lens are sufficiently opaque, and the tortoiseshell print has beautiful caramel and brown marbling.
apple pants red coat1I've heard great feedback from those of you who picked up this Ann Taylor tote. The "foggy morning" color shown here appears to be sold out online, but the "Find in Store" button still lets you select it to search locally. After carrying this one for a bit, my shoulders tell me its a little heavier than last season's version, but hopefully that translates into greater durability.
apple pants red coat3Snapshot from my Instagram: curled up on the couch with one of Nick's mojitos after shoveling away this weekend. We were lucky enough to "win" a plot (doled out lottery-style to those on a waiting list) in one of Boston's community gardens this year. Having grown up in suburbia with plenty of yard space, this concept is a little novel to me but very interesting. We couldn't even keep a cactus alive in our current home, so we're hoping a little natural sun and soil will help us redeem ourselves.

  18. Hello! I'm a new reader and I'm always seeking out petite fashion options! Do you have a post anywhere with recommendations on shopping the children's section? (best places to shop, how to pick items that still look age-appropriate, etc.)

    1. Hi Sarah - I don't have any posts dedicated to navigating the kids section. Personally I try to avoid the kids department because the fit is never right for grown women, but I like to poke around Crewcuts (evidently), H&M kids, and Gap kids since they often have similar versions of their womens line. I usually avoid tops since they're cut short and wide, dresses since the waistline is usually too high, and usually pants because the butt is too flat. Skirts work a little better in general.

  20. Those apple bottoms are adorable, they look like a polka dot print from far away! (Glad you didn't pair them with "boots with the fur," lol). Happy spring gardening!

  24. Oooh thank you for reviewing the sunglasses in detail! I have a very very flat nose and sunglasses always slide down and sit on my cheeks, so I never wear them other than when I'm driving... will have to give these a try!! :-)

  25. I used to have the same problem with sunglasses sliding down my nose, until I discovered TC Charton, which designs eyewear specifically for Asians. Now I have a pair of sunglasses that stay on my nose no matter what, even when smiling! There is a store on Newbury Street that sells the brand; it's called Newbury Visions.

  30. Hi... what do think about wide-legged pants? Can petites wear them or they're a total no?

    1. I like them - maybe try a higher-waisted style and make sure the length is as long as possible (wear heels before you hem) without touching the ground, to get a streamlined look.
