If you’ve read this blog for awhile, you’ll know I have an older sister who works at Neiman Marcus in Austin. She’s amazing at her job and is always sending me pics of the latest new-season arrivals, marked-down merchandise, and pulling things she thinks I’ll love before I get to the store. This coral 10 Crosby by Derek Lam sweater is one of those items! It comes from an exclusive collaboration the designer did with CUSP – I fell in love with the punchy shade of peach and asymmetrical hem of this knit. It’s going to be a perfect transitional piece for spring, when the weather is still cold but I want to wear softer colors!
While I’m wearing my favorite Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans in this post, I did want to mention another pair of jeans that my sister also helped me find. I don’t want to assume that you’ve noticed, but over the last couple of months I’ve really made an effort to improve my diet. The change in my diet coupled with the exercise I’ve already been doing has helped me lose over 10 lbs since November! When I got back to Austin for Christmas, I realized the black skinny jeans I brought with me no longer fit – they were too big and kept getting baggy! Imagine my excitement! I texted my sister and told her I needed a new pair of high-waisted skinnies, and she brought me a pair of these. The only phrase I can use to describe this pair of miraculous denim is O.M.G. They are incredible! They are the perfect high-rise fit, and skinny all the way to the ankle. I may have to buy another pair since I wear them practically every day. Shop them here and here. Outfits featuring these jeans to come soon!
PS – if you’re ever in Austin and shopping at Neiman’s, ask for Alex Beck! ;)
