Madewell Blouse / Cindy and Johnny Coat / Free People Boots / Topshop Jeans
As my return to Montreal quickly approaches (I go back next week!), I can’t help but reflect on simply how much my style has changed over the past year. Throughout the winter I made a strong, urban statement, with my docs, 90% black wardrobe, and a lot of leather. Returning to San Francisco for the summer (especially this summer, a small stylistic revival of the 70’s) completely shifted my wardrobe from dark to dreamy and ethereal, leaving me in a bit of fashion limbo as I prepare myself for the ’15 A/W season.
This outfit, though a little more retro than urban, is a small attempt to integrate these two looks I’ve possessed and loved. Pairing the mom jeans and the structured jacket with a peasant blouse and brown suede creates a nice fusion of boho and street, and I will continue to merge these starkly different strong stylistic feelings of mine for the rest of the season.
Fall is quickly approaching – fall catalogs are filling our mailboxes, the Vogue September Issue cover was announced – and it’s really hard for me to think about anything else. I leave for school in two weeks, meaning I’m frantically trying to gather anything I may need for my fall look. Think suede, grays, and a hefty touch of 70’s flare.
I can’t wait to show you guys some of the looks I’ve been brainstorming – this Fall is going to be a good one!
The Outside Lands Music Festival, which took place this past weekend, was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Seeing Elton John perform live was a privilege and a dream-like memory that I will hold on to forever. These days, it feels like the hype of music festivals surrounds basically anything other than what an amazing time they can be. Don’t get me wrong – the style was amazing and although I didn’t see any, a celebrity siting would have been interesting, but Outside Lands was a serious reminder that the goal should be an indescribable experience brought to us through music, and nothing else.
With that said, here’s what I wore:
And here are some more pictures:
Did any of you attend Outside Lands, or any other music festival this summer?? Let me know!
In all honesty, I can’t really decide whether this blouse makes me feel more like a pirate or an 18th century French soldier.. But regardless of the inspiration behind the design one thing is certain – I love this shirt. Since purchasing it I have realized that if I don’t feel at least 1% ridiculous when getting dressed in the morning, I probably don’t love the outfit as much as I could. I feel best about my outfits when I’m a little bit out of my comfort zone, and the enormous sleeves on this shirt do just the trick!
