I feel like it’s been soooo long since I’ve done a regular outfit of the day post. 2020 has been a weird year! But I finally got a change to get out of the house to visit The Row in DTLA and it was the perfect spot for photos because it was deserted! I feel bad for all the businesses there because it seems like business must be down a lot. But it was good news for me because I hate a crowd when I’m taking photos. After grabbing coffee and a bite to eat at Go Get Em Tiger it was time for some photos!
I JUST got this gorgeous Dôen top in the mail and thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear it. It’s super sweet, feminine, and comfortable. It’s a loose billowy top with smocking at the neckline and sleeves. I thought the fall floral print would pair perfectly with my Everlane Wide Leg pants in this ochre shade.
This top definitely is a splurge but I’ve been trying to ‘buy less and buy better’. I want the pieces in my closet to really stand out and I want to LOVE wearing them. It feels like such a treat to wear a Dôen piece because I know it was carefully and ethically made. The pieces really are gorgeous in person. I’ve been a long time lover of Dôen pieces but this is actually only the second Dôen piece that I own! I have a dress from Dôen that I love so I thought it was about time to expand my collection.
I thought this Dôen top paired perfectly with my Everlane Wide Leg pants. It gives this outfit a 70’s vibe I think. Can I just say how much I love wide leg cropped pants? This Everlane pair is affordable and comes in soooo many colors. I love these pants so much that I think I might invest in the OG wide leg pants from Jesse Kamm, aka Kamm Pants. I just love the silhouette created by the Kamm pants. The waist is higher and the pant leg is longer which I think would be perfect for my body type. They are an investment however so I’ll have to start saving for them!
I also have another Dôen blouse coming that I think will pair perfectly with these pants. I’m so excited for all the fall florals!
I know ethical fashion can be a BIG investment. If you would like to start buying more ethical pieces but aren’t sure if you can afford it, check out my How to Afford Ethical Fashion post!
