I’d been looking for a minimal baseball cap and found the answer at Everlane (referral link)! It is unisex, lightweight, and I like how it is not shallow. They are not a staple item and the colors get updated whenever they come back in stock. Of course I got it in black. It also comes in white, light grey, and light olive green.

I tried the day glove in leather and reknit. They felt the most comfortable sizing up, however, I did not like the style on my feet. I also noticed the reknit had a very slippery and thin bottom sole. Those aren’t anywhere near the Rothy’s, in case you were wondering.

I’m really loving this season’s Uniqlo extra fine cotton shirtdresses (mentioned in my last post). It makes a perfect weekend outfit; I’ve found it a little too casual for work. It also has drawn random compliments from strangers. I got it in both stripe colorways (one is a brighter blue and the other is a darker navy blue) and light blue. I hang dry once I take it out of the washing machine and it dries mostly unwrinkled. It fits true to size for an oversized fit — I would recommend not sizing down. The pockets are also deep enough for water bottles, mini umbrellas, sunglasses, etc.

to shop / {deal alert} ferragamo vara pump in black leather

June 18 Update: If you recently purchased (~10 days ago) a pair of Ferragamos on sale from Bloomingdales, they have an additional 25% off sale (code SAVE25). You can ask for a price adjustment, but don’t wait too long because last time the SAVE25 lasted for one day. They have restocked the aforementioned Vara pumps numerous times even during the day as well as these neutral patent Varina flats in pink bon bon. A steal!

These classic Ferragamo black leather Vara pumps are 40% off at Bloomingdales and 35% off at Nordstrom. Currently, there are only large sizes available but if you’re looking for a pair, I would check back for popbacks. Non-patent Varas and Varinas are much harder to find. I wear the black patent ones all the time for work and have been wanting to get some in smooth leather.

Read on for my brief Ferragamo review and comments on sizing.
