Outfit: Black & White & Navy - They Totally Mix

A bare midriff might seem challenging even for us 30-somethings who aren't phoning it in but to all that racket I say pfft. Especially in the winter. This is when I come alive.

And so can you.

I bought this Calvin Klein navy and cream robe (yes, pajamas!) at a recent tag sale and now I kind of live in it. Oftentimes silk sleepwear is less expensive than proper clothing so (trust me - I'm a style doctor!) take advantage of the pajama trend and buy yourself a bunch of perfectly drapey silk tops and robes (but call them caftans after you buy them... so you sound fancy and not at all like you're wearing PJs) while they're everywhere.

I know this amazing lady (through Poshmark, of course) who makes new bracelets out of vintage pieces. I needed a little extra oomph in mine so she custom made this one out of a ginormous vintage pin and beads for me:

If you follow me on Instagram (which you should), you know I think golf shoes should be a thing. (Some golfers agree, haha.) You're welcome.

Vintage MCM. There's just something about it. This one's shot to hell and it just makes it better. It's like knockaround luxury. I like to carry this backpack when I'm tag sale-ing (hands-free shopping for the win) and when I'm at a show (hands-free dancing also FTW).

I, like, really love trees, y'all.

Sometimes I do a thing similar to the free association game with my clothes, where I keep one item from an outfit to wear again the next day. These shorts were in my last outfit post and my bag will be in my next one. Nothing has to be worn only once, or only one way, and this is a really good way to immediately craft a more mix-and-matchable wardrobe for yourself. Try it.
