Hi everybody, happy Friday!
Just wanted to put together a quick outfit post of what I’m wearing today, because I feel so good in it. I know a lot of you follow me on Instagram so it’s a bit redundant, but I do try to add some additional commentary to my posts here 🙂
Today I’m wearing two of the pieces from VETTA’s new relaxed capsule. I feel a bit unoriginal because I’ve seen basically every ethical fashion blogger wearing the same pieces, but I don’t regret my purchases at all just because a lot of other people have them. I’m all for originality, but I’m also for wearing things that make you feel good and fit well, and it doesn’t matter if everyone else has those items. And these items make me feel good.
I’d like to talk about the pants first, because I really love them. I mentioned previously that I have these pants in both the black and sand color, after being disappointed with a different purchase of black pants. These are a blend of linen and tencel, so they are comfortable and breathable without getting overly wrinkly.
The fit is also great for us shorties – I usually cuff my pants up, but with these that’s a styling choice rather than a necessity.
A lot of VETTA’s previous capsules were comprised of dry clean only pieces, and I am happy that this collection is lower maintenance. My VETTA sweater dress and culottes are staples in my wardrobe, but the dry cleaning does get to be a real pain.
My top is the boxy blouse, worn with the buttons in the back.
I don’t know what is up with my hair here.
I ended up with these Veja sneakers on a bit of a whim. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to exchange my Fortress of Inca mules for a size 5, like I had hoped for. I was going to just flat-out return them, but these caught my eye. The style is the Bastille sneaker, and they are more of a nude color with a pink undertone than they look here. I like that they are mostly neutral but still inject a bit of color into my wardrobe. So, I did an exchange for these.
I haven’t really seen anyone style these VETTA pieces with sneakers, so I do feel original in that way!
Lastly, I accessorized with my GLDN pinky swear necklace. My friend and I both have them, sort of like a grown up friendship necklace.
Her friendship means a lot to me. She lives in Florida but is one of my closest friends. Not to get super emotional, but I’m not someone who has a ton of friends – I guess that is just life when you get older. It also has a little to do with when I was really sick and I was frankly totally unpleasant to be around. So the ones I do have, I’m so grateful for, because they really believe in me, support me and see the best in me.
What are your plans for the weekend? I’m going to a winery tomorrow to celebrate my friend’s birthday, and also doing more house organizing and unpacking.

Hi! I know I am behind on this one but can I ask how you find the sizing in Vetta? After some mis-sizing with Elizabeth Suzann and J+J (everything did work out in the end) I am wary about online sizing guides. Can you offer any advice?
Hi, thanks so much for stopping by! VETTA is a bit tricky because I’ve found it can vary by capsule. I generally wear an extra small or small, and in the current relaxed capsule I went with an extra small for everything as I found the items run a bit large. I could have maybe done a small in the jumpsuit, since it is a bit snug in the shoulders/chest but it does fit well in the length (for all other items the extra small fit perfectly). Generally, VETTA seems to run longer in length, but fairly snug in the shoulder area. I have an extra small in their long cardigan from a prior capsule – again, it is more snug in the arms, but the length on a small would have been way too long for me! (I am 5’3″). Anyways, that was sort of a long answer but I hope it helps! If you have any specific questions please let me know 🙂
