Positano, what a dream town to visit along the Amalfi Coast. It has been my dream to visit this seaside town and it finally happened last year in October! Charles and I, along with our friends, took a train, a commuter train, and then a bus from Rome, Italy, to get to Positano. It was quite the commute (probably about 5 hours total just to get to Rome to Positano) but worth it to be in such a beautiful destination. A more in depth post is coming soon but enjoy the photo diary!

Friday Favorites: Vintage Shopping
When I was a toddler, my grandmother took me to the nearest thrift store and bought me the frilliest dresses you can find. Lots of tulle, ruffles, white, floral prints, I had a ton of those dresses while I was in kindergarten thanks to my grandmother. I thank my grandmother for introducing me into the world of thrift store shopping.
During my high school years, Charles and I found ourselves at Goodwill, local thrift stores, and the Rose Bowl Flea Market in search for one of a kind pieces (back in the days, Charles scored a lot of Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior blazers, Member’s Only jackets). It continued well into my early 20s but somewhere in my mid twenties, I stopped hunting. Either it’s the introduction of fast fashion stores (which was all the rave back then) or I just didn’t find interest in it anymore.
After a long hiatus, I found myself thrift store shopping again. This time, with a better eye for picking out on trend florals, linen, and silhouettes that flatter my figure. It helps a lot to nail down a capsule wardrobe to be able to accommodate vintage pieces (but working on a capsule wardrobe is something I still need to sit down and figure out what I have and don’t have).
Dresses are easy as you can wear simple sandals and bags to go with your outfit. Neutral colored sandals in nude/beige/tan all seem to work well in my thrifted clothes rotation this season. These TOMS sandals were sent by TOMS and are extremely comfortable and cute!
Vintage tops in earthy neutrals look so good with high waisted jeans like Everlane’s 90s Cheeky Jeans. I own a handful of high waisted jeans right now and I can’t get myself to wear any other rises at the moment.
Little modern accessories can go a long way! I added a scarf to my hair to tie my entire outfit together.
My beige linen skirt from Zara paired well with my polka dot cropped top that I found at the thrift store so adding a few more basic/neutral colored skirts is a must. I initially had planned to wear this top with high waisted pants but it didn’t look as good as I wanted it to be!

Spring is Near
When the weather is pretty much warm all year round, dressing for spring/summer is easy peasy (although it can get tiresome at some point). Lately, I’ve been making an effort to dress more and I’ve been having so much fun! Truth is, I’m usually in sweats but this time around, I’ve been shopping at thrift stores, working with brands, and I’ve been having a lot fun trying to come up with outfits. I have so much outfits to share!
I posted this outfit on my Instagram and got a lot of compliments on these Zara pants are they’re only $29.90! It comes in other colors but I love this toffee color so much. It went so well with this blouse I got from H&M that I got on sale. My Communitie Marfa hat has been a staple in my closet since I bought it last year,
Hopefully you had a great weekend! Can’t wait to share more outfit photos.

Everlane – The Back-Slit Work Pant
A few of my current favorites in one outfit! Everlane sent over these work pants and they have been my favorite since I’ve gotten it. I love the slit in the back which gives it a little bit of an edge and I’m looking forward to buying the work pants without the slit! I’m totally into high waisted anything right now and I love that it makes my legs a mile long! I’m in between sizes right now and I feel that I could have ordered a size 4 instead of a 6. When I buy the work pants, I’ll buy a size 4 and see how that works. I also got my eye on a few other things for both me and Charles so I’ll report back on those!
I’ve had my eye on this sweatshirt for awhile and finally was able to buy it. I ordered a size Medium and I think it’s a great size! It was a bit pricey but I was able to sell something on Poshmark in order to get it. I have been obsessed with anything French/Parisian so it’s been on my list since it came out!
My Mansur Gavriel Triangle Tote has been on constant rotation and these Intentionally Blank shoes as well. I bought the shoes over the summer but I finally started wearing them! They go well with a lot of my clothes and I’m trying to figure why I haven’t worn it sooner?
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I know some of you got an extra hour of daylight! Have a great week!

Everlane The Cheeky Straight Jean
Finding the perfect jeans has always been hard. Not sure what it is but I always feel like a pair of jeans just doesn’t look good on me as they do on the model…. until Everlane came along! As soon as I put on The Cheeky Straight jeans and their box cut tee, I knew this entire combination is going to be a repeat in my wardrobe.
Let’s talk jeans: The Cheeky Straight Jean is a high waisted, straight leg jean that I got in the ankle length. I’m 5’5″ and ordered the size 27. in Sky Blue I think I may have been able to get away with a size 26 or 25 as it was a bit loose (but that could be due to my weight loss via dieting). Some of you asked about petite sizing. Wasn’t too sure about that but if you want a regular length for your height, maybe order the ankle length (depending on your height of course). I personally like my jeans cropped so I love that they have an ankle option!
And the shirt, I love the Box Cut Tee! It has the perfect looseness: not too tight, not too oversize. I ordered a Medium as I like my shirts to be a little loose and it was perfect!
I’m Everlane’s newest and biggest fan! I’ll definitely be purchasing all of the colors of the Cheeky Straight Jeans and the Box Cut Tee for sure! I’ve been into elevating my basic wardrobe and Everlane is doing just that!
