AJ Wears :: Navy Pants

Happy two-year anniversary to these pants, which I bought in Nice at an H&M. I couldn’t find them online when I looked, so I convinced myself they were a special European strain of pants that only I had. Honestly though, I really love them. They’re super light and flowy, which makes them perfect for hot summer days when you have to look put together but also want to feel breezy.

In other news, the last time I wore these pants on the blog, they didn’t zip up all the way. Now they do. This is a great lesson in NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY (sorry, Marie Kondo).

AJ Wears :: A Plaid Suit

Happy Friday! This truly has been the summer of suits - especially this one. I love how easy the pants and jacket are to mix and match with other things; you might remember both pieces from my trip to San Diego.

If you’re normally a t-shirt and jeans kind of person, a suit may have some unintended side effects, such as duping your coworkers into thinking you have a super important interview somewhere fancy. Keep them on their toes by dressing for the job you really want - Diane Keaton.

AJ Wears :: A Denim Dress

What EXACTLY do you call this dress? Jumper? Pinafore? Fancy skirt overalls? Whatever term you may choose, I randomly remembered it the other day and decided to see if it fit (a lot of old stuff is doing that lately!). I had been dreaming up this sleeve / jumper combo in my head and was delighted when it actually worked.

It also made for the perfect pairing for my new shoes, a birthday gift I bought myself when I was in NYC. No one knows how to spoil me like me.
