What I Wore: Sunny Day

This was one of those thrown-together-in-30-seconds-or-less outfits that turned out … kinda cute. At least, I thought so at the time. It was a bright, sunshiny day, and my winter-addled brain may have suffered a temporary, joy-induced malfunction, leading me to overestimate the cuteness factor of this whole thing. To be fair, every time I type out “mustard” in a blog post, I suddenly feel like I need to start questioning my sartorial choices.


At the first glimpse of sun, plus flats-friendly sidewalk conditions, I immediately pulled out my AG Stevie slim cropped cords. I’ve been waiting to wear these since I bought them last fall, in a Kijiji-deal-of-the-year situation. They are sooo soft and comfy, and totally worth the $20 I paid for them. Did I mention they were new? Did I also mention that I subsequently went to Anthropologie to look for more pairs, and had a bit of an ugly cry when I saw their regular price? That, my friends, is the downside of being really, really, ridiculously good looking* at finding bargains; you come to have impossible-to-meet price expectations. I know, I know. Don’t y’all whip out your tiny violins at once.

* I could not resist a reference to the best movie about fashion of all time.

  1. You have the best luck… and the right size to find clothes and shoes in fantastic brands to fit you. As a size 7, I can NEVER find shoes in my size for instance.

    Pants? Forget it. Not for $20 anyway.

    • I ALWAYS seem to find size 7-7.5 shoes! Like, it kills me because I have to walk away from outrageous bargains. Same things with pants … I just saw another AG pair the other day, but it was a size 26 or something. Sigh.
      Maybe we should just shop for each other … problem solved? Hahaha!
