Another sunny day here, with a crisp bite to the air. I'm off to get a haircut (thank goodness!) and have a few other errands to run downtown later this afternoon.
I'm wearing skinnies, western-inflected booties, western belt, an "Out of Print" tee featuring Poe's Raven, black watch plaid blazer, and RM grey bag.
Why it's me: Jeans, booties, jacket -- my all time favourite combination. When in doubt, this is what I reach for; it has been a staple of my style since I was a teen. I like the juxtaposition of dressy with casual.
I'm a bit "off" skinnies but I still wear them. I especially like the rise of the Rockets and haven't found a slim or straight jean that works quite as well from that perspective. I think the proportion works for me.
The jacket is a workhorse bought on sale last year. It doesn't wrinkle, is cross-seasonal, and is part of a suit. Wearing the sleeves pushed up and rolled back is very "me." I almost never leave my sleeves long. I love the structure of jackets but not if they feel "precious" or "uptight." This one never does.
I don't wear tees very often but this one works for me because it's all cotton (comfy), it makes a literary reference, and the grey coordinates with my hair, pulling the outfit together. It's very "me" to emphasize the grey and make it stand out as a deliberate choice.
I adore RM bags. I own 3 and I would almost say I am loyal to the brand. This one is so perfect for me. Bought on sale in the fall.
When I go out I'll be wearing my pea coat with the collar popped. Also a very "me" move.
