Wearing Lately

Here’s a few pictures of what I’ve been wearing the past few weeks…and a few more shots of the Sabi shawl as well!

I have a special place in my heart for peasant dresses, and almost always end up buying them when they aren’t too sheer, can be worn with a regular bra without showing, and are knee length or a bit above. Luckily for my wallet, most peasant dresses don’t fit all three criteria. This Alice & Olivia dress one did, so I had to try it.

I think this dress is gorgeous, but if you’re a shortie like me, I’d say that it runs large (I’m wearing a 0 above), and also a wee long (if you’re taller, I think it’d look amazing on). The drop waist was a really awkward look on me, and in fact I was going to return the dress until I realized I could simply tuck in the waist for a blouson look. I’d probably have waited for a sale regardless for a dress like this, but I had a specific event a few days later which I knew it’d go well for, and gave up on trying to find another less expensive option. This scenario has been happening to me more and more often since baby’s arrival, by the way.

My sandals are Caslon and were a pleasant surprise. These are true to size to a tad small – I’m usually a 6.5, but needed a 7 in these. They are super light, quite comfortable, and a great summer sandal option, for under $100. Mr. Feather likes these too! I wish there was a suede option, but the leather on these is very soft already.


Banana Republic dress (similar here, another option under $120, ), Stuart Weitzman sandals (similar here in a lower heel, and a less expensive version by Sam Edelman here).

I bought this white knit dress from Banana Republic earlier this summer – it was my first purchase from Banana for what feels like years! I’ve been finding a lot of very tempting goodies there lately though, including this very fabulous navy jacket.

Evelyn Scarf Side

Ever since I found my Fendi strap, I’ve been having fun swapping out straps on my other bags too, and experimenting. This Hermes scarf is a favorite, but had languished in my closet for the last few years. I double knotted it to my Evelyne bag, and I really liked the result! It makes my Evelyne shoulder length, and “summers” it up. Try it yourself!

Finally, I had to share a few photos of the Sabi shawls being used by their new owners. It’s been wonderful to hear your feedback and see how you use them.

First off is Betty, pairing the naturals colorway with an Hermes Kelly bracelet and a Van Cleef Magic malachite necklace. I have dreams about this necklace. I’ve tried it on multiple times. Over and over again. Betty has a great Van Cleef collection – I also shared another photo of hers on my Instagram over the weekend, pairing the Sabi with her tiger eye Alhambra!

The second is my dear friend J, with her Sabi shawl in pinks and creams. I love how the pinks bring out a blush in the face.

What J wore her Sabi with…this is such a beautiful combination of colors. And I rarely use this phrase, but I DIED over both the orange Hermes Convoyeur bag and that pave (!!) Hermes station necklace. Amazing pieces.

I could look at this picture forever!

    Hi Kat – the BR dress links to a different style. Is the one you’re wearing still available? Thanks!

      It’s more or less sold out unfortunately 🙁 They must have redirected the link. It’s called the scalloped sweater dress if you want to try your local stores!

    Dear Katherine,

    I hope you got those Tabitha flats – they are so cute! Love the way everyone has styled the Sabi shawls – super cute! And that BR dress looks so nice on you! I can never wear white – I get coffee stains on it almost instantaneously 🙁

    Hope you are having a great week!
