What a Classic

This lady can do no wrong.
My major fear with headscarves is that I'll look more like Eddie B than Jackie O.

Back to Skool

Taking the words out of my mouth.

when the seasons change

on my fall/winter wish list
  • penny loafers
  • navajo or nordic oversized wrap sweater
  • gray sweatshirt (like thos isabel marant one from seasons ago)
  • black cropped pants, not like the skinny isabel marant ones. I want them to be in more of a suiting material, and with more of a kick around the calf
  • nice wool blazer. one that properly fits. none of this boyfriend oversized business. I'll be wearing it over my oversized sweaters
to be continued...

style in (not so) surprising corners

Who knew the gems hiding in zara kids? Don't worry -there's no little one on the way. This is purely imaginary shopping, and I wouldn't have even been aware of it without my daily style's posts on children's fashion.
I guess I shouldn't be that surprised- I've always loved the crewcuts styling. But whats scary about these outfits is that they are pretty close to exactly how I want to be dressing this fall. Denim shirts, ripped jeans, stripes, loafers? Yes on all counts.

Turning Tide

The last couple seasons I've felt a little adrift. I was able to get on the studs bandwagon, but a lot of the other hot trends just fell flat to me. I can't exactly pass for a punk rocker, and I never felt comfortable wearing a bodycon mini. It's not because of my body (though I'll be the first to admit I'm hardly a supermodel. It was more that I didn't feel comfortable dressing in such an overtly sexual, exhibitionist way. Crop tops and mesh just don't do it for me. Dressing like a street walker is neither comfortable, nor sexy.
I feel sexiest when I'm just out of the shower wearing a classic white button down, with my wet hair either pulled into a bun or dripping down my back.
So obviously I'm quite excited about the new tack that most designers seem to be taking. It's like they're embarrassed by their past follies, and are maturing. Many of the outfits are in fact to mature for my current stage of life, but I'm ok with that because finding a style that's "me will be much easier this year than in years past.
