WHAT I WORE:: THINGS I LIKE

17 May

Truck-lined streets. This is Texas
HAT MADEWELL / SHIRT ANTHROPOLOGIE / PANTS ZARA / BAG ZARA / BOOTS VINTAGE

I have an affinity for this baseball cap that I simply can’t explain. The day I bought it I put it on when I walked out of the store and have worn it at every excuse ever since. Why? I couldn’t tell you, it’s completely nondescript, it’s an unremarkable color, it probably doesn’t even go with this outfit. But I like it. And at the end of the day, that’s what it’s really all about, right?

Other things I like:
  • These totally beat up boots I bought at a street stall on South Congress here in Austin for such a low price, I bought two! (Remember that week I bought 3 pairs of boots? This was one of em)

  • The back of this shirt. Can’t get enough of it.This is white button down shirt number 3 in my closet.

  • This lip stain. It’s a Revlon lip stain in Lovesick… I don’t know what I did before it. I have 4 colors from this line and Lovesick is my favorite.
  • In writing these bullet points, I’ve also discovered that I really love multiples. That is potentially dangerous for my wallet.
What are a few things that you like right now?

FALL FAVORITE: HATS!

18 Oct
Plenty of inspo to get your head in the right space for fall — which is under a rich wool hat.

Yunno that phrase “You wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you”?
I feel like hats wear me.
And all day long I am 200% aware that I have a large accessory on my head, blocking my peripheral vision and yelling “LOOK AT ME! I’M WEARING A HAT!”
I know I know, I just need to get over that.
Of course I have the token straw fedora and it comes out to play at the beach and at festivals. And I borrowed my friend’s awesome hat in this photo. Baby steps friends.
Do you rock the wide-brimmed hat? Do you feel like everyone’s looking at your wide-brimmed hat?
Do you just not care?
If so, I dig your moxie.

It was Elena Perminova who first alerted me to my dire need for a pink hat, and it was Bec&Bridge’s recent collection at Rosemount Australia Fashion Week that sealed the deal. The hats were the result of a collaboration with hatmaker Akubra. I love love a good collaboration, and I think it was a brilliant move for  Aussie label Bec&Bridge to pair up with Akubra – there is nothing more quintessentially Australian than an Akubra! (They usually look a little more like this). Clearly I need a pink akubra to throw in with a white tee, boyfriend jeans, and some stilettos. Expect these to be popular with the street stylers!

I’LL HAVE WHAT SHE’S HAVING:: Elena Perminova

31 Mar
This pink Maison Michel hat has been my favorite street style moment of the year. 
Well done Elena Perminova. Her style is smashing, but I have a hunch it has something to do with her bff Miroslava Duma!
