Shopping My Closet: Outfit 3

This shop my closet post was unplanned but I was picking something to shoot with my photographer last week and she started snapping these photos. It ended up being perfect because I love this very simple but very happy and colorful outfit!

Pink Silk Shirt (similar): I got this shirt probably six or seven years ago when we were living in the city and I still reach for it for our date nights at least once a month. Our babysitter even made fun of me for wearing it so often! It was from a store called Otte NY that doesn’t even have their own label anymore I don’t think.

I bought it because of the color, and if you actually look at the closet in the background here you’ll see a lot of this color! It’s one of my favorites to wear but really hard to take photos of so it doesn’t get featured nearly enough on Lemon Stripes. Shopbop actually has a whole page of their site dedicated to the color right now which is amazing and very dangerous for me. This shirt is so pretty!

This one is cute and on sale for $26. I also love this blouse that looks pretty similar but with a v neck for only $39.

I wore it last in this post (my hair was so long!) with the same white jeans of course.

White Jeans: Similar to the pink shirt, I’ve had these pants for a long time. I think maybe over 10 years. How they’re still white(ish) is beyond me. I’ve had many a pair of white jeans in my life and these will forever be my ride or die. I couldn’t fit into them post partum until two or three months ago and that fact in itself lit a fire under me to lose the rest of my baby weight. I realize I could buy another pair but mine are perfectly warn in.

J.Crew is actually having a pants and jeans party. 20% off one pair, 30% off two pairs, 40% off three pairs with code PANTSPARTY. Grab a friend or two to really save on jeans! I love love love these, even though their different than anything I own.

I wore them last in this post and this one.

Beaded Necklace: My turquoise Fairchild Baldwin necklace was one of my favorite pieces of jewelry of all time. I know it’s an insane amount of money but they are so special and make an amazing statement in person. The turquoise one broke, sadly, when I accidentally forgot it was at the bottom of a checked suitcase not in a bag or padded at all. #rip.

My friend Amanda happened to find this pink one on major major sale for my birthday last month and didn’t even know about the other necklace.

I realize that it’s super pricey, so I searched around for a few similar options for you guys.I found this necklace that looks pretty similar to my turquoise one and is a fraction of the price. Plus it’s on sale for 30% off with code SAVE30 this week. And here is another one in pink that has the same vibe.

I wore it last (in turquoise) in this post.

  3. This is such a cute photo shoot! Also, I’m OBSESSED with your home office. We bought our first home this past summer and one of the main things I love is that I have a detached home office. It has it’s own closet/bathroom. But I’m currently using the closet as storage for some unpacked boxes that I probably should go through soon…LOL!

    Have to say that I love your hair in this post!! I have shorter hair now and sometimes it can be tough to find ways to mix it up. But this look is so fun!

  5. So my husband and I just moved into our first home after ONLY living in tiny spaces with even smaller closets… and I have an empty walk in (literally no rods or hardware or anything) to work with and I’m totally overwhelmed at what to do to maximize the space! I have tons of clothes, but I also want to make sure I leave room for him too (I’m determined not to be one of those “House Hunters” wives that looks at the master closet and says “so where is you’re stuff going to go?” like no one has EVER said that before lol). I started building one of these on the MS closet website, and it seems pretty easy! It says it’s not all real wood, I think it’s partially like particle board – have you had any issues with wear and tear now that you’ve had it up for a while? My husband is so anti-particle board after many years of Ikea products lol. But these seem like they’re pretty well made! I would love to hear more how you like them!

      Hi Lindsay! I totally feel your pain on this one. I’ve had this closet up for over a year now and it’s been perfect. No issues at all on my end. This seems more well made than Ikea products but it’s definitely nothing fancy. And one random thing about it is that you can’t change out the hardware on the drawers.
