I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is the most perfect summer top. It really is.
While billowy, it remains flattering (just be sure to pair it with a fitted bottom!) and the white eyelet makes it perfect for summer. When paired with my favorite jeans and go-to accessories, it’s come together in another outfit I reach for during panicked I-have-nothing-to-wear moments. I’ll be pairing this with the infamous Zara skort that’s been making its way around the blog world next, and wishing I was watching Wimbledon live. Because seriously, can you think of a more perfect outfit? Negative.

The Devil Wears Prada is one of those movies I can watch countless times without getting sick of it. The witty dialogue, a tolerable Anne Hathaway, and the clothes. The line that never fails to elicit a giggle from me is Miranda Priestly’s famous “Florals, for spring? How groundbreaking.”
These outfits may not win any bonus points from Madame Priestly, but like her famous line, they make me happy. As does great weather, which Memorial Day Weekend was sorely lacking. I’m not complaining – it gave me the chance to catch up on books, give my apartment a much-needed scrub down, and get my fill of Arrested Development, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch – our addiction with Sherlock, The Hobbit, and Star Trek continue (as does our love for all things mystery/fantasy/sci-fi – we’re a very nerdy couple).
And with jam-packed week on deck, followed by two weeks of travel (Chicago, Cape Cod, and DC – I’m headed your way!), a cozy weekend at home is precisely what I needed.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect plaid shirt for DECADES – back from my elementary school days, when I wanted to emulate Kurt Cobain’s style and musical genius.
I was a weird kid.
The hunt finally ended last December, thanks to the Flatiron neighborhood’s J.Crew (and their 30% off everything sale). I snapped this blouse up in a frenzy, having made a run for the shirt the second I entered the store. I’ve worn it all winter, pairing the Cobain staple with polished East Coast pieces. As much as I love Seattle, my constant blazer wearing during college definitely got some looks from the North Face-wearing locals.
