Every so often I try on my jeans and realize I don’t love how any of them fit. The styles change, my body changes, or they just loose their shape. As we transition into next season now’s a good time to refresh your denim. I’ve had a lot of requests for white denim so I’ve listed both blue and white options.
Cozy Hazelnut Flat Pouch Stoney Clover Lane, $88. Makes a cute gift with a monogram. The Cozy Collection (faux fur and shearling bags) just landed at Stoney Clover Lane this week.
Re/Done High Rise Ankle Crop Vintage White Jenni Kayne, $195. Stopped into Jenni Kayne over the weekend and walked out with these. Love the fit (true to size) and a great color to wear now and transition into spring/summer.
My friend invited a group of us to her beautiful home in Sun Valley this past weekend. The weather was mid 50’s during the day and 20’s at night. What to pack?? Our hostess informed us to leave our Uggs at home (too LA) and pack flannels, boots, down jackets, and a hat. Shoes are always the hardest for me. I want to bring so many but I’m limited to what I can fit into my carry-on. I have the Hershell duffle and you would be surprised what you can squeeze in there. I ended up packing 3 pairs of boots, 1 pair of sneakers, 1 down vest, 1 down jacket, a peacoat, 3 pairs of jeans, and 3 sweaters. My complete packing list below.
My friend had two action packed days planned for us. First it was dinner Friday evening at The Covey. A beautiful restaurant that serves gourmet food with excellent service. Saturday we had brunch at Cristina’s which is a charming and intimate restaurant (check out the chef Cristina Ceccatelli’s cookbook Cristina’s Tuscan Table). After Cristina’s we walked around Sun Valley resort and stopped into Panache for a little retail therapy. Then it was iceskating at Sun Valley Lodge and cocktails at the hotel lounge. In the evening we had dinner at The Pioneer Saloon. The Saloon is a landmark restaurant that serves up hearty meals in a western style setting. We finished the night at Whisky Jacques for music, dancing, and pool. On Sunday morning we took a hike along the beautiful Big Wood River. Then it was time to catch our flight home. Sun Valley is a special town surrounded by scenic beauty. I can’t wait to go back!
I have been coveting The A sneaker by Aquazurra ever since I saw Giovanna Engelbert sporting a red suede pair last year. She’s switched it up a bit at NYFW (below) and wore a black and white pair with a feminine polka dot dress…love!
Lauren Santo Domingo (co-founder and COO of Moda Operandi) was spotted on the streets of Paris looking effortlessly chic in blue jeans, white top, sling backs, gold hoops, top handle bag, and a teddy bear coat. If you have a great pair of jeans and tee you can mix and match your accessories for a fresh new look over and over again. This is truly classic done right!
