The Recipe

I must be frank – I’ve been playing a lot less dress-up. Not because I’m not actually dressing up. (I make a point to do that. Every day.) It’s because there’s a lot less guesswork in reaching for my wardrobe in the morning these days. My style has crystalized into something that I hope communicates […]

How To Wear A Jean Jacket


Every gal should own the perfect jean jacket – I found mine on sale at Urban Outfitters when I was a junior in high school, and I’ve never looked back.

That animal print belt is from J.Crew and was last seen here, the fuchsia Christian Dior skirt was a lucky find in grandma’s closet, the camo jacket is from the men’s department of GAP, the Rag & Bone chambray shirt was illustrated just like this here, the dress is a Liberty print from Target, and finally, that there is a black tee from American Apparel.

How To Wear A Button Up

It was just a matter of time before I did a How To featuring my favorite article of clothing… in general, I prefer to lift button ups off of my dad or brother and then wear them to death.

The star shirt is from the Urban Outfitters Men’s Department, the red one underneath my Madewell leather jacket is from Old Navy, the plaid one underneath my grandma’s monogrammed sweater is from my brother c/o of J.Crew, the polka dot shirt my mom got from Land’s End Canvas, the chambray one is Rag & Bone and worn over a Gap henley, and the “wishful thinking” shirt is from J.Crew, worn over a Victoria’s Secret string bikini and Forever 21 booty-licious shorts.

And if you haven’t already scoped these, here is How to Wear a Scarf, How to Wear a Tee, and How to Wear Jeans.

New School

Besides the all-important jersey? I FINALLY found the short version of this skirt while browsing at Secondi this summer – it was originally from H&M (SCORE). And of course, the ever present denim jacket and Target wedges. Ride ’til they die.

Mind Games

I like to keep things extremely simple and extremely streamlined when rocking the high-waisted, almost-booty shorts (of which I obviously bought two pairs, denim and white). On the left is a J.Crew cotton tank top and Lands’ End Canvas wedges, and on the right is a J.Crew cotton tee and H&M wedges (recently seen here). The Heidi braids, of course, are the perfect subversive foil.

All told, I feel like a camp counselor on the set of “Wet Hot American Summer” in these get-ups – that’s a good thing.
