Casual Friday










Zara skirt, J. Crew shirt, Gucci purse, Rag & Bone shoes (buy here - on sale!), Saks hat
Necklaces - J.Crew & gifted/vintage pearls, Bracelets-Saks, J.crew &F21, MK watch

While most reserve casual Friday for denim bottom, I prefer to wear it on top. Not because I don't own any, but mainly because I can't fit into the ones I have! :-/ Since moving to Boston, I've put on about 5lbs --love weight, I like to call it. The 'love' went straight to my thighs & tummy, but some how completely avoided my chest area! My better half has an appetite of about 5 growing teenage boys. He likes to eat and very often at that. I used to eat what he ate and when he ate, but soon realized my body can't keep up. Thus now, I'm struggling to shed the love around my mid section. Because, you know, it would be nice to wear my jeans again.

  2. This outfit is absolutely perfect!

    I so know what you mean about weight gain. I gained 10 lbs since I got married (2 yrs next month) and most of it went into my hips and belly. I would rather have some go to my chest area and some more in my legs. I don't mind the weight, I can use it, it just goes to all wrong places :)

    Have a fab weekend!

  5. Gaining unwanted weight is never fun, but it seems to have served you well here because it allowed you to come up with this combo! Great styling as usual; I have that skirt as well and this gives me inspiration! And do you and Anh have the same wedges?? They're so gorgeous!

    Have a great weekend Khatu!

  6. Guys eat so much! I don't know how they do it... Sometimes I feel like they are secretly exercising when we turn around, how else does it work??

    You look darling, and your "confession" is adorable honest. I'll be cheering you on! Good luck and work hard!!

  8. As much as I love men, their ability to eat loads of food and not gain weight is maddening! On the bright side, you have great legs for skirts :)

  9. Oh my god, I know the feeling! Jeff eats and eats and always wants me to sit and eat with him and I just can't keep up AND have also gained 5lbs this summer! Frustrating. I love that you called it love weight. So true. But you look gorgeous. No worries.

  10. <3 it, casual & comfortable but still classy!

    Wouldn't it be awesome if you could direct any added weight to where you want it to be on your body? Any time I gain weight, it goes to my tummy & thighs as well, completely missing my sad excuse for boobs. :P So not fair!
