It’s that time of year again and if you’re not excited for festival season then I’m not sure that we can be friends anymore. Festival season is always exciting – but combine festivals with the massive overtake of the 70’s trend and what you get is insane street style. Here’s one look to hopefully provide inspiration for the lucky ones that get to go to Coachella come April! I’ll finally be attending Governor’s Ball in NYC and Outside Lands back home in SF this year, so you guys will finally get to see what I’ll actually be wearing to a festival this year!

Are any of you guys going to a music festival this year? Let me know where and when!

Take it From the Guys

Many people like to take inspiration from menswear when they’re looking to wear something structured and minimalistic, but I find I look to menswear when I’m doing the opposite! When I feel like my style is becoming too forced, or too fussy, I turn to the guys to bring it back down to earth. As I look towards the fall and begin to think of all the glorious autumn outfits I’m planning on wearing, I find myself looking at men’s style more and more.

Matt Healy, the lead singer of the 1975, is a perfect example of that effortlessly cool factor that many style smart guys tend to have. A lot of my more edgy outfits root themselves in outfits that he’s worn!

My initial interest in men’s style came from my brother, who lives in the Pacific Northwest and is always finding new rustic and rugged brands that are just so cool. Some of these include Wings + Horns, Broken Homme, and Herschel Supply Co. (before it became the new “it” backpack). The effortlessness of great mens style fascinates me, and it will always be the reason behind me wearing an oversized jacket, a pair of bulky boots, or some sort of loose beanie. This fall you will definitely find me shopping in the men’s section! xx

With New York Fashion Week soon coming to a close and London Fashion Week soon to start, I thought it fitting to do a blog post or two about arguably some of the most important weeks in the fashion industry. I’ve noticed throughout the past couple of Fashion Week seasons that Street Style has become a major part of the Fashion Week experience. Blogs and magazines don’t solely report on what goes on in the tents anymore– they also report on what people are wearing outside of them. With the vast variety of people and looks in NYC, it’s hard not to get inspired by this exciting time. If I were lucky enough to attend a show or two, I can imagine I might wear something like this. The range from casual to dressy is larger than one might expect, and I think that is part of what makes what the attendees are wearing so interesting. xx

P.S. Expect a post about my favorite collections from this New York Fashion Week soon! (There were a lot, so brace yourselves).

Chilly Weather and Fur Gillets

Day Two in NYC! Today’s weather was much better and I was much better prepared. I was thankful for the rapidly dropping temperature in the evening, because it gave me the opportunity to wear this new Topshop fur gillet that I bought in Soho yesterday! The shopping there was incredible and I plan on going back soon. The trip keeps getting better and I’ll try to post as much as I can before I leave!
