Do you ever step outside having had worried about the appropriateness of your outfit in relation to the weather and then discover that you nailed it?
Most fabulous feeling ever.
the banana republic silk tuxedo shirt
I bought this blouse during this past holiday. It is silk, it came in tall size range, and it was marked down. It sold out in my size but thanks to a little light stalking, I was able to locate this style within days of the price reduction.
This blouse reminds me a lot of those from Equipment in style and fabric quality, but fit-optimized for a tall frame. I spent just over one hundred dollars on this shirt; in addition to the front pintuck detail, it looks and feels much more expensive. I know I say this at least once a season, but Banana Republic is hitting it out of the park.
I do not think it is particularly tailored, but I am still wearing a size large tall in this shirt.
the stubbs & wootton fox loafers
This was the first day wearing the Stubbs & Wootton loafers. I logged over three thousand steps that morning just walking to the neighborhood Easter egg hunt and as with all of my Stubbs & Wootton loafers, not a blister to be had. With a beautiful pair of shoes like these, I would sacrifice comfort for aesthetics but I cannot stress this enough, the break in time is literally nil.
I am wearing a size eleven in these loafers. They run small-ish. Size up if you think you might be between sizes.
stubbs & wootton discount code
Stubbs & Wootton loafers do not come cheap; however there are so many influencer codes littering the internet, you will never have to pay full price. The FRIENDSOFSTACIE code still works on most styles, but the code does not work on for the Assouline collaboration. Cut to me discovering Krista Robertson’s Covering the Bases blog and her code for twenty percent off, COVERINGTHEBASES. This is code from a post dated from 2019, still works and is comprehensive of most collections, including the Assouline collaboration!
