before the weather gets so warm that the thought of wearing sleeves makes you sweat more than the sleeves themselves, it may do you some good to prep for fall by snagging a pale pink sweater. idk, just a suggestion. you don’t have to. i won’t twist your arm.

  1. vince, $305
  2. true decadence, $42
  3. alice & you, $25
  4. j.crew, $188

this girl knows that a mid-length chambray skirt is a staple; when featured with fullness, its lightweight fabric allows summer breezes to flow through and keep you comfortable. basically, you need one this season. 

  1. viyella, $135
  2. apiece apart, $335
  3. gerry weber, $145
  4. cc, $100

so you’re a chick with a grungy personal style and it’s summertime and temps are way hot. what is a girl to do? take a cue from this pattern-loving filly and go sheer.

  1. modcloth, $38
  2. modcloth, $38

dreary days like today have me yearning for the pastels springtime brings, so obviously this chick's pants are giving me life; i couldn't eat ice cream, anything with a bright condiment, or japanese food (soy sauce) if i ever wore anything similar, but that's fine.

  2. mango, $35
  3. maison martin margiela, $414
  4. dorothy perkins, $45

i love me a color-blocked coat, don’t you? there is something about them that makes you want to frolic through a field of daisies and/or visit the nearest modern art museum. the latter would make more sense since this style of coat is slightly mondrian, but anyway, see below for something similar to the one this chick is wearing.

  1. a la russe, $1,900
  2. diane von furstenberg, $707
  3. j.crew, $398
  4. pied a terre, $89

this image from the sartorialist is saying “i want you to want to touch me.” there is still a bit of a chill in the air making this post slightly still relevant, but we should all run out and get teddy bear-like coats is basically what i am trying to say.

  1. miss selfridge, $100
  2. antipodium, $335
  3. john lewis, $84
  4. ainea, $575

it’s been a while since i’ve posted a “recreate the street” feature but this look (captured by vanessa jackman) is too good to keep to myself and surprisingly easy to style.

  1. a long camel coat
  2. a coordinating camel crossbody
  3. one black scarf with fringe
  4. knee-high suede boots

as i’m sure you already know, outerwear is *everything* when the weather gets cold considering it will cover up the chic outfit that took you hours to put together as if you aren’t wearing anything at all. thus, make it a statement like this chick. she knows.

  1. red wool coat (shown)
  2. studded cowboy boots (shown)
  3. chambray shirt with peter pan collar (shown)
  4. bootcut denim (shown)

it’s cold, which means that you probably need to up your outerwear game; this isn’t meant to be insulting, but it’s always nice to optimize as seasons pass and be *even more* awesome, no? with that in mind, a leopard coat like giovanna’s is an a+ option.


i rarely talk about celebrities because they typically bore me, but concessions had to be made once i saw alexa chung in this outfit. perfect for holiday parties, don’t you think? a chunky knit on top balances the slim skirt. i’d prob replace heels with flats, but still: <3.
