Ever have one of those days where you feel like your body is just… broken? That was me yesterday. I did something really klutzy on Sunday when I was making my bed (of all things… couldn’t this be a story about some incredibly risky stunt I pulled?). I was in a rush and somehow I snagged my foot in the buttoned up part of my duvet cover and went flying across the room… landing on my shoulder. It hurt but I figured I was fine. I went out, ran 3 miles, and didn’t think anything of it. And then yesterday, I in the most pain ever. My upper right arm is not working. But I went and saw my trainer anyway. Though we stuck to mostly lower body exercises I knew it was a mistake by the time I got home… so achey and sore! Such a dummy. So here we are today… hoping to feel a little bit better. Man, duvet covers… they’re deadly – who knew!? 😉
When I spotted this cute top from SEA I knew I had to have it. I will say that it does wrinkle (as you can see in the photos, sorry) which is a little annoying…. the sash especially. I ironed it to perfection the morning I wore it but after sitting in a cab and then through a meeting, it was all wrinkled. Still, it’s linen, which looks okay wrinkled. I’ve also worn it with the Ulla Johnson skirt from this post, white skinny jeans, and flares. And you can also tie the bow in the back for a more fitted/streamlined look.
I love this skirt (bought last year). This one from Veronica Beard is very similar (ruched at the top with a cute little flare) but I also love this paisley ruffle mini, this affordable mini, and this bright ruffled skirt!
Outfit Details: Burberry Kensington Trench Coat (affordable versions here + here) // SEA Wrap Top // Love Sam Skirt (old but similar options here, here, here, and here) // Cult Gaia Bag (I have the large one) // Celine Sunglasses // Hart Hagerty Tassel Earrings // J.Crew Corsica Espadrilles
I get asked a lot about what I put in my Cult Gaia bag. The simple answer is that you have to be really streamlined or it will look like a hot mess. I keep my sunglasses case and my keychain inside it… and then I stick my wallet, lip gloss and a few other things inside a pink dust bag. The bag holds a lot but can look really messy.
