OOTD: Featuring JCrew Sequin Henley and Silky Linen Slouchy Pant UPDATED

Went out with some of my girlfriends for dinner and some times:)

I wore:

Ann Taylor Necklace from 2008...I like it because it ties the green and silver/gray together
Brown Leather Motorcycle Jacket from Prada (Fall 2007 or 2008?)

I love these pants and have since ordered them in the other two colors.  They are ultra flattering and super comfortable.  I also love the Sequin Striped Henley, again very comfortable while being so super stylish.
I haven't been loving Ann Taylor lately, its been so boring....but I do occasionally find a piece and I do quite like their shoes for work.  The Marissa Strappy Sandal I do not plan on wearing for work but they are so comfortable, I wore them for about 6 hours and spent close to 3 of those hours dancing.  So they come highly recommended, and they are in the nude color family so they elongate the leg...which we can all use.

UPDATE:  I wanted to talk about the fit on both of these items.  The Silky Linen Slouchy Pant stretched a little bit when I wore them (could have been all the dancing)...I'd say about a quarter inch through the hips and seat.  I checked the seams and they are still firmly intact.  I always find that linen and silk stretches so I sort of expected this.  The good news, the knees didn't get misshapen or anything like this.  And the waist has elastic so no worries about that stretching out.
The sequin stripe henley tank really held up well...I'm quite impressed.  I would say that this item fits TTS but if you are on the shorter side, small chested, or on the very thin side, I would suggest that you size down.  I didn't layer a tank under this to go out but I would wear a white favorite tank under this for daytime wear.  The sequins are very securely fastened and I didn't lose a single one.  It is also pretty long.  For reference, I am 5'9 and it hits me right around the low hip area (and I have a fairly long torso.)

It was a fabulous night out with the girls...something we don't do that often.  And we had so much fun, until some jerk stepped on my toe.  My big toenail split in the middle of the nail.  It hurt so much and blood was everywhere...(fortunately, I got my shoes off before they were ruined!) now I have half a toenail on my one toe...thank god for the Vietnamese nail salon...they slapped a fake nail and some acrylic on it and now it is good as new, but sort of running for about 3 weeks for me:)

Do you own any of these pieces, if so how do you style them?  I'm always looking for ideas.



  1. I bought the silky linen pants in a tall 6 and the waist and hip measurements were too close for my pretty curvy lower half. Sigh. I really loved how these pants felt! Enjoy them for me!

  2. Umm, and oh, no. Your poor nail. I have lost toenails before and it stinks! :P

  3. Dina: Sorry they didn't work out for you...If they were slightly too tight, mine did stretch about a quarter inch all of the way around...just an FYI.

  4. Jordyn: Ooh, that is good to know. :)

    That said, the waist was so big on me that if the hips were to stretch, then I will possibly suffer from them falling off! Maybe the pair I got was wonky? Huh.

    I think I *might* try another pair on sale (and I may not get the tall size even though I love the length).

  5. Nice shoes!! Pretty.
    Sorry about your poor toenail!!!


  6. I own the striped henley and LOVE it. I typically wear it with JCrew's long neon bow necklace from this past fall/winter, JCrew's softspun cotton cardigan in neon pink, and white skinny ankle pants or skinny jeans. I've also worn it under a blazer with jeans and it's looked really cute.

    I love it paired with the silk linen cargo pants! Very cute!!

  7. Beth: thanks...toenail is quickly recovering and growing out:)

    AllDressedUp: What great ideas....I just love this piece, I have the grey which is pictured above and also purchased the beige. I love them with white bottoms, so chic. I love your idea about neon accessories...I'm gonna have to dig through my jewelery box and see what I have...have a great weekend!
