SUMMER SERIES:: DENIM + HAT

6 Aug
HAT J.CREW / SHIRT ZARA / SHORTS ZARA / SHOES ANTHROPOLOGIE (old) 

It’s no secret that I love and wear these shorts all the time. So much. Too much. But I can’t help it! They have a nice loose waistband which allows for lots of eating and a relaxed wash that matches everything I own. So I wear these shorts and I’m not even sorry bout it.

This my friends will be the last post in my denim shorts Summer Series! Not to say that I won’t be wearing these for the rest of the summer (because I certainly will), just that it might get a bit repetitive around here. I really enjoyed showing the different ways I wear this fav of mine, and being realistic about the fact that I do, yes, repeat my outfits. {Thanks Kate Middleton for repping repeat wearers everywhere}. 

I’ll be brainstorming ideas for my next outfit series, if you have any suggestions I’d LOVE to hear them!

SUMMER SERIES:: 3 STRAP FLATS

19 Jul

 

Friends, I gave you standing outfit photos. I gave you sitting outfit photos. And now, so as not to bore you (I am wearing the same shorts in all of them after all) I give you jumping outfit photos! I’m starting to think all outfit photos should be jumping, it shows the clothes in a new light, no? Also, it calls to mind jumping genius Natsumi with her levitation photos. Genius.

Now, on to the topic of shoes. (My favorite topic everrrrrrrrrr!). I tend to think of these as the quintessential man repellant shoe. I mean, there’s nothing sexy about shoes that a 5 year old might wear.  (Same goes for these sunglasses). However, when my boyfriend set eyes on these he said “those are fun” … and I said “really??? I thought you would HATE these”. And he said well, they’re fun. I would have liked him to elaborate and discuss, but he had nothing else to say on the matter. Fair enough.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you may recognize these shoes, I did a post about Alexa Chung’s 3 strap flats aaages ago, and about how I really really wanted them. Actually it’s quite impressive that I deliberated for a whole year before making this purchase, and I’m so glad I did!

SUMMER SERIES:: DOUBLE DENIM

12 Jul

Take 2, of how I style denim shorts! Double denim. Whoah. I know. Now it took me a long time to finally get on board with this one, but once I did it felt so natural and not Euro-trashy like I assumed. I actually really love the look now, and it’s super comfortable. I was inspired by the country feel of it, hence the brick wall photos. There was an awesome blue barn behind me but it was on private property so that was a no go. I paired them with my wedge sneakers a la Isabel Marant. These shoes have gotten so much wear I almost feel sorry for them. On my New York trip they were practically the only shoe I brought. Super risky! But they really did work in every occasion and held up to all that walking. So I can vouch for these!

SUMMER SERIES:: JEAN SHORTS

9 Jul

 
I recently put together the ‘Lookbook‘ page on the blog and realized that I have only posted TWELVE outfits since my first outfit post a year ago. What a failure! A travesty! An average of only one outfit a month. That’s a rubbish effort if you ask me. So in an effort to boost the number of outfits I share I decided to start a new series featuring the ultimate summer staple: the denim short. Classic. Effortless. Indispensable. Jean shorts have been around since the dawn of time it seems, or at least since I first saw the movie Now and Then with Christina Ricci in her cool tomboy plaid shirt, and Thora Birch with her jello bra – and decided I wanted to be them. Since then I’ve been through a plethora of shorts, from the itsy bitsy to the teensy weensy (hello high school), and now I think I’ve finally found a pair that’s juuust right. Naturally I’ve been living in them – I think the secret is I sized UP two sizes, for that Alexander Wang slouch. I wore it here with my Taylor Tomasi-inspired blazer, also worn here.
