When Goodnight Macaroon first reached out, I guess I was expecting an online children’s bookstore. Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized that Goodnight Macaroon is actually a very clever name for an online boutique specializing in of-the-minute clothing (at reasonable prices).
This jacket, for example, is just the thing to dress up a turtleneck/graphic tee situation. (See? I promised I’d work that turtleneck in somewhere.) And if you’ve been reading The Mom Edit closely over the last week, you may have already stumbled upon a few other Goodnight Macaroon pieces. (This Ramones tee is theirs as well. Raines picked it out for me – it’s his fav band. And this outfit was totally inspired by this one on Happily Gray.)
[Side note: I’ve been getting several questions about photography – equipment, settings, etc. I’ve included shot details with the last pic (the one that also has outfit deets). I’d also love to hear from you seasoned photographers with tips/tricks/improvements…..Thanks!!]
(photo info: All pics taken outside of the skating rink at Dilworth Park in Philly by Mike Draugelis. Mike used the outdoor rink lights as the lights for the shoot. Equipment: nikon d610, nikkor 85mm lens (f1.4).…Settings: iso 3200, exposure 1/200, f/2.5)
jacket: Goodnight Macaroon Houndstooth Notch Collar Coat c/o (size XS – runs a bit big)
turtleneck: J.Crew Tissue Tee
leather shorts: i-Ella c/o (and long gone)….but Goodnight Macaroon’s High Waisted Faux-Leather skirt would work (I found that their skirts run a tad small)
stockings: Wolford (see this post for a huge list of similar stockings)
heels: old….but these Sam Edelman heels are similar
I have a confession: I love these heels, but….I don’t really wear heels to walk around the city. And it was date night for Mike and I which often means wandering, sooooo….here’s what I actually wore after the shoot:
This jacket has been getting some serious play in the morning school-dropoff scene, too. It turns out that a long, tailored, tweedy jacket is JUST THE THING to camouflage pj tops and sweatpants. I mean….I’m reasonably sure no one knows what I’m wearing under there. I haven’t noticed any funny looks or anything….which, admittedly, is hard when you are all-out sprinting down the street to get your six year old to school before the bell rings. GOD KNOWS HOW I HATE having to fill out office paperwork as to why my son is late AGAIN. At this point, the answer should be obvious. #crazymother
