What I Actually Wore: 10.5 - 10.11

Happy Monday! I had a good weekend, a nice mix of productive and relaxing and fun. I was pretty tired from the week (we recorded four different times for the podcast AND I spoke on a panel on Tuesday, and had an early morning shoot on Friday) so made sure to get to bed early every night this weekend and just load up on sleep/relaxing stuff. Also, I saw The Joker on Saturday night. It was pretty dark and hard to watch but so brilliantly done. Highly recommend (but only if you enjoy/can handle dark stuff). I can’t stop thinking about it.

This week is going to be another really busy week but one that I’m very excited for! We’re recording the podcast with Eva Chen tonight (!!!) and then on Wednesday morning we’re off to DC and then Philly for our live shows! I am really looking forward to both shows; if you live in either city… COME!

On the podcast front, hope you’ll check out today’s bonus episode of Bad on Politics. We sat down with Clare Malone from fivethirtyeight to get a primer on all of the Democratic candidates (and the three Republican challengers) before tomorrow night’s debate. In 47 minutes she walks us through the top ten contenders (who they are, their platforms, etc). I definitely learned a LOT.

What I Actually Wore: 10.5 – 10.11

Saturday:

The Occasion: manicure date with a girlfriend at Paintbox.

Outfit Details: gifted Veronica Beard x Sold Out Sweatshirt // Levi’s Jeans (old but linked to a similar pair) // Vince Sneakers // gifted Donni Sunglass Chain // Amazon Sunglasses // Chanel Purse

ballet flats - What I Actually Wore: 10.5 - 10.11

Sunday: 

The Occasion: errands, laziness. If we are being really specific, I think I took this picture while walking to get a breakfast sandwich. Sounds about right.

Outfit Details: I forgot to take a pic but my jeans are Levi’s (old!) and my pretty new ballet flats are (gifted) Gal Meets Glam x Margaux.

Tuesday: 

The Occasion: Speaking at ACTIVATE influencer conference (I was a part of Chinae Alexander’s live recording re: body image + size inclusivity)

Outfit Details: Wayf Top (it’s navy blue; love the ivory too!) // Frame Jeans (old but try these I’m pretty sure they’re exact) // Gucci Belt // Sarah Flint Heels (take $50 off your first pair with code GRACE50)

Wednesday: 

The Occasion: working from home + podcast recordings.

Outfit Details: gifted Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen Sweater (this is my fav piece from her collection; wearing a size small, it’s in plus sizes here) // Re/Done Jeans (really old; these are similar) // Manolo Blahnik Pumps (old // only saying this because people asked – I love them but if I were buying them again I’d get the Sarah Flint ones as I find them more comfortable. This depends on your foot shape; try both!)

Thursday Day: 

The Occasion: work from home + podcast recordings.

Outfit Details: gifted Atlantic-Pacific Sweater (this sweater is SO COMFY, wearing a small) // NYDJ Jeans (exact pair + they’re on sale – size down!) // Vince Sneakers

Thursday Night: 

The Occasion: dinner with one of my fav publicist friends at Brasserie En (SO GOOD).

Outfit Details: MM La Fleur Trench // Rodebejer Top + Wrap Skirt (old SORRY bought the set in Sweden last year) // Miu Miu Pumps (also old; they have the coolest silver stud heel)

Friday: 

The Occasion: I had a photoshoot in the morning and then put on my comfiest sweater + jeans for a lazy work from home day. I look like a slob and my sweater is v wrinkled!

Outfit Details: Madewell Sweater // NYDJ Jeans

That’s it for What I Actually Wore: 10.5 – 10.11!

    Love the outfits, especially the Wayf top. Do you mind sharing what size you are wearing?

      I’m wearing a medium. I’d say it’s true to size (the medium is actually a little big on me; I had been anticipating more of a juniors fit but fit is more like J.Crew (it’s a bigger medium, if that makes sense!)

      • Jane says 10.14.19

        It does, thank you!

    I am obsessed with that wayf lace top! It comes in black too, but I think it’s only sold at Dillards. And also loving that striped sweater from Atlantic Pacific, it’s so cheery feeling. I didn’t order it but now I’m thinking I need to. Both tops looks great on you!

    As a woman who wears jeans to work every day in a casual office, these Monday posts have become some of my favorites! Thanks for inspiring me to dig out my old Re/Done jeans and maybe buy a new pair.

    The Evie sweater is beautiful in both color options; although, I really like the camel version. The Rodebejer blouse and wrap skirt are gorgeous!

    Happy Monday

    Props to you for wearing real clothes working at home. I’m yoga pants all the way.

    Loved the BadOnPolitics 2nd episode. I thought a bit of the info was overgeneralized, but to be expected when trying to cover so many candidates in so little time. I am all in for Elizabeth Warren, and appreciate how well thought out her policy choices are. So full disclosure 😉

    One thing I wanted to add, as someone who works in health care and employee benefits, we as Americans are currently paying for our “uninsured” and “undocumented” when they walk into an ER needing care. As the system currently stands, we are subsidizing hospitals who need to recoup these unpaid bills. By providing medical insurance to everyone, we could reduce the exorbitant unpaid ER and hospital bills, by allowing everyone to see non emergency care. The hospitals and prescriptions account for well over 75% of our total medical expenses.

    I say this as an example of why a government program could end up costing us less and providing an improved quality of life for all. The poor are our responsibility no matter how you slice it. They do not have the funds to pay. By taking responsibility, we can improve their quality of life and manage their immediate basic needs in a more comprehensive and cost effective way. It’s not just compassionate, it makes good business sense.
