I’ve really been loving my closet check-in posts, made possible by consistent use of the Stylebook App on my phone. So far I’ve done one for the first quarter and second quarter of the year. So what did I wear the most this summer (July to September)?
First Row (left to right):
Everlane Street Sandals: They were in my Lowest Cost Per Wear Everlane post last year and it looks like they’ll be on it again this year. These are my second pair, having worn the heck out of my first pair. There is an initial break in period when the leather is quite stiff, but I use foam stickers to pad the pain points until the leather softens up (I used to use Dr. Scholls foam stickers but they don’t sell those anymore so I now resort to these kiddie ones lol).
Celine Soft Cube bag (similar here and here): Not reviewed yet, but I will. Been using this bag for my daily essentials ever since I got is used from Fashionphile (with the bulk of the cost defrayed from trade-in credit). I’m really loving this dark green color this Fall.
Celine Nano Belt Bag (similar here in one size up): Reviewed here. I purchased the Nano Belt Bag size and sold my Micro Belt Bag size. In the review I share why I love the Nano more than the Micro, and it shows in my wear count too since I have never used the Micro as much as I have the Nano so far.
Everlane Easy Chinos: Reviewed here. I’ve worn and washed these so many times that the pants are starting to fade around the edges and I’m liking them even more. The size 4s still fit my pregnant belly even though the elastic is starting to get stretched to the max. These have easily become a closet staple and I’m going to try to get several more weeks of wear with them before I have to save them for post-pregnancy.
Everlane Day Heel Mules (now on Choose What You Pay Sale): Reviewed here. I did mention before that these are the only pair of heels where I will choose them interchangeably with flats. And that’s probably why the wear count on these are so high. Hands-down my favorite pair of casual heels ever.
Everlane V Slingback: Reviewed here. I love these woven sandals and it’s the perfect shoe when I want to be a little dressier than the street sandal but don’t want to wear heels. Also the pink works better with cooler-toned outfits than the tan of either the street sandals or the day mules. For such a light color, they’ve held up remarkably well.
Elizabeth Suzann Linen Clydes: Reviewed here. These have been my favorite pants all year but I started wearing them less in September due to the growing baby bump. I can no longer wear them (the high elastic waist is way too tight on the bump) so I’ve put them away for post pregnancy. Guess I’ll be seeing you next summer Clydes!
Elizabeth Suzann linen Georgia tee: Reviewed here. I love my Georgia tee but ended up selling it and keeping the Linenfox version because it fit me better. Thanks Georgia for the good times and being my introduction to ES!
Everlane polka dot shirt dress: Reviewed here. I love love love this cupro dress and also love that it was pretty good at hiding the baby bump during the first trimester. This is my go-to dress when my legs are shaved and I’m too tired to care what I’m wearing. I’m going to add tights when the weather gets cold and hope to continue to wear this throughout the year.
Arizona Birkenstocks: Not reviewed. So comfy I’m willing to forgive the granola hippie style of ‘em.
Everlane Form Bag: Reviewed here. This is my go-to work bag when I need to carry a laptop. I’ve been working from home lately (mostly thanks to first trimester nausea and exhaustion) so haven’t been using it as much I did my former work bag (the Everlane market tote below).
Everlane Collarless Belted Shirtdress: Reviewed here. This is my second favorite pregnancy summer dress after the polka dot shirt dress. Another easy outfit for days when I don’t want to have to think.
Everlane Market Tote: Reviewed here. My former work bag and if you take a peek at the picture at the bottom of the post, it’s been my most used item this year with 97 days of use! So far this bag has held up like a champ even though I lug my laptop in it for every one of those 97 days. I also don’t baby it nor have I conditioned it and there are only a few scratches and a couple slight wrinkles in the leather. If you’re looking for a lightweight durable leather bag, this Market tote can’t be beat! Could this be my future baby/diaper bag?
Celine Cabas Phantom (similar here): Reviewed here. I’ve been using this tote less since I plan to keep this bag for a really long time, and want to keep it in as good of a condition as possible. I only now use it when I go out and still need to carry a bunch of stuff. This is also a future going out version of the baby/diaper bag.
I really love these wear count check-ins since it helps me see if I’m really wearing all the things I reviewed and said were great. Plus it’s away of showing you guys that I put my money where my mouth is, lol. I’ve 273 days of continuous logging so far, which boggles my mind, but the Stylebook app makes it easy.
And what does my wear count look like cumulatively this year? Top 8 are the Everlane Market tote, Everlane Street Sandals, Celine Cabas Phantom, Elizabeth Suzann Linen Clydes, Vince Blair Sneakers, Frame straight leg jeans, Everlane Day Mules, and the Polene Numero Un bag.
