THE PANTS I WORE TO THE OPENING OF LADURÉE

Happy Hump Day! If you follow me on Snapchat (@lehmala) and/or Instagram Stories (@laura.lehman) you saw that I '"graduated" this past weekend. I was able to walk in the ceremony because I only have 9 credit hours left that I will finish up this semester. I started my summer classes literally the day after I walked which was definitely a little weird, but I am so so ready to get this semester moving..so it can all be over and I can get back to blogging on a regular basis. These once-a-weekers (if that) are killing me.

Onto the outfit: to be completely honest, I've only worn these pants once. I was invited to the opening of Ladurée in Georgetown (how that happened, I will never know) and it was the perfect event to wear something like this to. I wore a different top/shoes, but honestly, these pants can be mixed and matched with a ton of things, so I plan to wear them again to another event in about a month. Now, I know a long-long time ago (3 years, but who's counting?) I said I would never wear culottes. These are the exception and probably the only exception..and that's because of the tie-waist. I am a sucker for the tie-waist. I also suggest that whenever buying culottes of any kind, go one size smaller than you'd typically wear. While the waist may be a bit snug, it makes a huge difference in the leg.

THE JUMPSUIT THAT I DON'T HATE

















jumpsuit: Lanston // sandals:  Vince // bag:  Gucci // sunglasses:  Celine // watch:  Michele

Guys, obsessed would be an understatement.  I usually hate (loathe, whatever you want to call it) a jumpsuit.  It always looks horrendous on me, but I gave it another chance.  So glad I did.  I saw this on Shopbop a while back and loved the cut of the top, so order I did.  It came in the mail and as soon as I touched it, I knew I'd be keeping it.  The fabric is so incredibly soft.  I've worn this to a formal event, I plan to wear it during the day, and really..I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up sleeping in the thing..it's that comfy.

Anyways, lesson learned.  As much as you hate something, might as well give it another try..you never know!  Oh - and that advice is specifically for clothes..not life..

LACE BODYSUIT

Guy..bodysuits are my new fave thing.  I love to tuck in my shirts, but hate having to constantly check if they look right or have come untucked.  Whomever invented the bodysuit must be a wonderful person..maybe it was some sort of alteration from the swimsuit or leotard, whatever..it's here now and hopefully here to stay.  I'm also obsessed with this one from Trois that Jacey from Damsel in Dior has.  Need to buy.

Also, these earrings.  I wasn't quite sure about them, but I'm now wearing them non-stop.

dress:  c/o Tobi (shop all Tobi products here) // shoes:  ATP Atelier // bag:  Cult Gaia // sunglasses:  Celine

A1) I know I need to get out in the sun more B2) I fully intend to in about a week..just got to get through the next 10 days.  This dress, though..perfect for some quick errands on the weekend, brunch with friends, or even a beach cover-up.  It's super soft and has enough weight to it that it can be worn in multiple different situations.  Throw on a jean jacket or long cardigan and it's perfect for work..depending on how tall you are.  This actually may not be work appro for me..5'7 may be pushing it.

Also, these sandals are my absolute favorite.  My bff found a similar pair at F21 for about the price of the tax, but I'm in love and have already worn them about 57 times, so definitely worth the price.  I actually scoured the internet for a couple days to find them on sale..not 100% sure I would have paid the full price, but I found them for half somewhere.  Happy hunting!

Onto the bag..the bag that everyone has.  I usually hate fads like this, but y'all it's so good.  Try your hardest to find it.  I have the small which comes back into stock pretty regularly, but if you're looking for the large, you need to sign-up for the "in stock" notifications.  Trust me..you can wear it all summer long.  

Hope you all have a great week!
