The relaxed fit works with classics and cozy basics alike and the slightly cropped length is perfect with ankle boots and booties.

What out of season pieces have you mixed into your winter wardrobe?

Before Brunch Blunders

The time my Dad turned outfit photos into a silent short film.

  Blazer: Saver’s, Sweater & Booties: Forever 21, Pants: Gap, Scarf: Cart in Copley Square, Fringe Bag: ebay

What my Dad thought was the shutter was actually the video capture button. So instead of the three or four outfit photos I was expecting I ended up with three silent short films. This was my favorite because at one point my dad tells me to show the lion my shoes and of course I obliged, to my utter embarrassment now.

Proper Smoking Slippers

This past weekend I spent a gorgeous fall day playing dress up while the lovely Julie of Julie Howk Photography snapped away with her camera. Not only is Julie an artist behind the lens but she’s got an eye for color pairings and a thirst for adventure unmatched by Indy himself. Dollar Store Sunnies, Navy Blazer & Lace Blouse: Goodwill, Leopard Belt & Slippers: Target, Skirt: Downtown ThreadsScott Disick may have worn them first but these babies are on the fast track to becoming my go to fall flat. Perfect with everything from skinny jeans to babydoll dresses and tights these leopard smoking slippers lend a funky vibe to this otherwise preppy outfit. They’re great for days when you’re on the run or when your feet demand respite from heels. The navy and mustard play well off the leopard accessories and the lace detailing on the blouse rounds out the look with a grounded, feminine feel.

Oxfords and Old Lady Gifts

Vintage Sunglasses: Gifted, Scarf: Florence, Italy, Blazer: Goodwill, Sweater: Gifted, Jeans: Levi’s, Oxfords: Target, Blue Ring: Charlotte Ruse, Etienne Aigner Bag: Gifted, Lipstick: Strawberry Suede (Revlon)I wore this casual weekend ensemble to the grocery store with D yesterday and was very impressed (and exceedingly proud) when he commented, “wearing the ole oxfords today babe?” Little things like that warm my heart.

On the weekends I like to keep things simple and since this look is just jeans and a tee but with more layers it fit the bill perfectly. Nothing is more comfortable than my Levi’s boyfriend jeans; they fit perfectly and can be rolled or cuffed a ton of different ways so they work with everything from booties to heels to flats. Since we’ve been having an unusually mild winter this year I was plenty warm in my cable knit sweater, navy blazer and a scarf.

My sunglasses and bag were gifted to me by guy friends which I find humorous because fashion isn’t a priority for either of them. The sunglasses were a gift from my childhood best friend. They originally belonged to his Grandmother and when she was getting ready to throw them away he put them aside for me saying, “I figured you’d like them since they look old ladyish.”

My other friend Josh, who does a lot of buying, selling and trading on ebay and craigslist, called me when he found a box of “old lady bags and hats” in a lot of items he purchased. Josh didn’t want to deal with them and said I could have the  box of “old lady accessories” for free as long as I took everything. While there were a few dozen crappy eyeglass cases to sort through, I ended up coming away with some beautiful leather bags, including a few more Etienne Aigner bags, two stunning faux fur pillbox hats and an older Gucci bag.

I’m not sure why I remind my guy friends of an old lady or if I should be offended but it’s worked out well for me so far, so why change it?
