What the Smock

I couldn’t help myself with this title! I bought this shirt before the holidays last year and love the smocked detailing. I think I should have tucked it in for this particular outfit now that I’m seeing photos, but you can see the general idea! (That’s one of the funnier parts about outfit photos. Sometimes things look great in person or in the mirror and then you get the photos back and think… “Ummm, no this didn’t translate well in a photo!”

The blouse is great with jeans and works well for layering too. The smocking around the cuffs and on the collar is my favorite part.

I also have to give a shout out to these pants!!! I’m such a sucker for getting stuck in a denim rut in the winter. Or worse, just wearing yoga pants. Tuckernuck makes this slightly flared pant in a variety of colors and fabrics. They are flattering. They are comfortable. They’d be great for work pants too if you’re in an office environment.

My trusty trench! It’s freezing again, but we were having some more mild weather for January. (Not really a fan because it freaks me out how unnatural it is!!!!)

Ahhh!! The blouse totally looks like something a March sister would wear!! Carly, PLEASE do a few outfits inspired by Little Women. We would all eat it up!!


What are your thoughts on Sézane sizing? I’ve heard some folks advise to size up in shirts because the shoulders are cut very narrow. I love your look here!


I get the US2 and I’d usually be a 0. The 2 is usually big on me so I ~think~ it’s true to size but hard to tell

I agree with you about the weather – it’s very unsettling how warm its been 😳


Would you mind sharing what size you are in the pants? I’ve been staring at the brown suede version but just can’t decide on sizing!!


I have the XS in the pants. I found the navy to fit perfectly and the black were slightly small so it might depend on the fabric
