{quick outfit post} the perfect camo jeans...

Zara jeans; Madewell sweater (old); Nordstrom faux fur vest (old, similar from Calvin Klein); vintage scarf; Ray-Ban aviators; American Apparel deep V tee; unknown oxfords; NARS heat wave lipstick.

Since I last checked in on the ol' blog, a lot has happened, and I'm so sorry I've been so bad at updating lately. The power is back on in lower Manhattan and things on the island have more-or-less returned to normal. We had a wild Nor'easter storm called Athena roll into town on Wednesday and leave us with a bit of snow, that promptly melted.

It was sort of a wild week of playing catch-up in the office, hence the lack of posting here. Anyway, camo jeans! I picked these up at Zara a few weeks ago, and I've gotten a lot of wear out of them since. They're an interesting fit, cropped and skinny with a lower rise and very little stretch (aka if they don't fit when you try them on, don't bother). 

They're almost velvet-y soft though, and have been really fun to style. At about $70, the price point is accessible, and they satisfy my fix for skinny camo jeans, but I still lust for the Textile Elizabeth & James version. For work today on a sunny, chilly Friday, I opted to pair them with my favorite Madewell cable knit sweater and faux fur vest, both from last season.

I hope to be back to regular posting next week, and hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

  6. Those camo jeans are great. Zara pants never fit me sadly, but those make me want to give them another try!
