Eggshell

1/5/12




J.Crew sweater, vintage DIY shorts, Jeffrey Campbell boots

Confession: aside from my love for the color yellow, I also obsess over all things eggshell colored. I found this sweet pair of mens' jeans while scouring racks of vintage/secondhand stuff the other day and thought it would look cute as an oversized-ish pair of shorts so I snipped away. After one wash, I think it fits just right. The drop is a little longer than I'd like, but I'd choose feeling comfortable and having enough room to breathe in a pair of shorts over camel-toe-bearing, skin-tight ones anyway. Paired the freshly made shorts with an eggshell-ish colored jumper from J.Crew, my favorite jumper at the moment. And can we also talk about these boots! I got a pair in my usual size seven a few weeks ago but when I tried them on, they were a size too big. Surprising - thought my feet had shrunk and I was feeling all bummed out until I found a pair that fit from Eilatan. Win!

Eggshell coloured garments have such a peaceful sense to them though that is nice; very relaxing outfit too! I like that you kept the palette minimal in colour, but that there are these different minor textures at play with each other. Have a lovely day!

gorgeous, Jenny! love what you did with the pants. the eggshell colour looks great with your skin tone as well. xx

Sarah said...

I'm on the same track as you! I have this major obsession with all shades of white. People think I'm weird cause its "not a color" In my heart it sure is!

And that song has been stuck in my head all day;]
