The Look

It has been a minute! I've been so wrapped up in getting my travel posts up that I put a lot of the lookbook posts on the back burner this summer. While I included my looks and links to them in those travel posts, it's still nice to get back to my roots of style posts and how/why I put them together. Marijn and I tested out a new camera for these shots and couldn't be more pleased! September will be a whole new animal for us.

Now, back to the look. I've been experimenting a lot with different denim style, so these striped and structured reformation spoke to me. I love the cut and almost boxiness of them. Not to mention, they suck you is in all the right places. Seriously, you can actually feel the material tightening up around the upper thigh area and waist. I find this too be super flattering, but at ties a tad uncomfortable. Nothing I can't deal with for how great your legs look when wearing them! The vertical stripes give your legs that elongated look, especially when worn with heels!

With the jeans as the focus of the look, I went very comfortable and easy breezy for the rest of the look. A simple white t-shirt should always be on hand for moments like these. As you can, it complements the heels nicely, but this look is just as easily worn with sneakers. My sheer orange sunnies (found on Asos) and hairstyle give the entire look a very retro vibe. I love how th eorange tint of the lenses works so well with the warm tones of the Hermès scarf. Speaking of which, wrapping scarves around handbag handles has to be one of my new favorite thing to do with accessories!

Repurposing Summer Pieces for Fall Layers

The Look

One of my favorite styles this season happens to be the layered skirt/dress. This is where an oversized sweater and accessories layers on top of a flowy dress or skirt. I got this dress in the summer as you may remember I wore it in Greece (check out that post here)! This layering technique is an easy way to extend its seasonal shelf life. I wore a pair of warm socks and a quality cashmere sweater to keep me warm since my legs were out. I was totally fine and comfortable despite the windy day! Throwing on a scarf helped too! It's super important to wear quality jackets/sweaters when doing this to compensate for heat loss since your legs are exposed.

I was thinking about how many sweaters and dresses I currently have and found that I have an endless supply of this look in various lengths, shapes and colors. Take a look in your closet and you probably have all of the pieces to pull a look like this together as well! I'm excited to try this look using cooler colors like grey and blue with a mid length dress and combat boots once it gets a little colder. 

Pointed toe shoes are a must right now! I'm in love with these ones from Asos. Quick Tip: if the ankle of the shoe isn't very fitted, you can give the illusion of a closer fit by wearing taller socks like I am in the photos. These boots are so useable and go with everything! I have found the Asos and Nordstrom have the best styles for the best prices!

Suede Neutrals + Black Lace

The Look

Seeing all of the warm fall colors on trees and falling leaves inspired me to post a look featuring a warmer color palette. Believe it or not, I do wear warmer tones, but not as often in blog posts, which is why I'm excited to share this look! You are probably use to me wearing this style of biker jacket, but the dark tan is likely a surprise. I love how the suede material gives the jacket a matte look. The zipper color falls somewhere between a silver and gold allowing it to really stand out against the suede. I found this gem on sale at Aritzia (of course). They always have such perfect basic pieces that can be worn a million ways. 

Now, here comes the element of surprise. The lace detailed short sleeve blouse that I got last holiday season has now been repurposed in my closet as a layering piece. I've worn this top with a cami underneath or a bralette like the one pictures. I prefer to wear this top with high waisted jeans because of how sheer the center of the top is. 

While throwing on a pair of heels or booties could easily give this look a nightlife feel, I went with comfier Nike sneakers for a Saturday in NYC. I love combining slightly dressed up looks with super casual sneakers. It brings the look back down to ground level and makes your entire closet instantly more wearable!
