Outfit // Classic Stripes

22 October 2012


I wore this outfit on one of those days where I really just wanted to keep my outfit simple. I chose one of my favorite classics, stripes, and paired with with some basic skinnies and a peacoat. When wearing such a simple outfit like this, I like to play it up with some bold accessories. So here I chose this adorable Oxblood backpack by Pour La Victoire and staple lace-up boots by Vintage Shoe Company to spotlight. Easy, breezy while still staying chic. 

Anyway, I have a little question to ask you all. What would you like to see more of on this blog? Is it outfit posts? DIY? Peeks into my adventures around NYC? Fashion advice? Playlists? Inspiration posts? I have been writing this blog for almost 4 years now (crazy, I know) and I would like to continue to expand it as the years go by.  So won't you take a moment and let me know? I would love to hear what you have to say.

Have a lovely Monday!


wearing: sweater - Forever 21; coat- SheInside; backpack c/o Pour La Victoire; lace-up boots c/o Vintage Shoe Company; necklace c/o Rebecca Minkoff

Whatever you write about, I'll be reading it. When I started reading fashion blogs regularly about three years ago, your site was one of the first that I followed, and I still haven't come across anyone who seems to be as gorgeous and charming as you are. :) x

That coat looks so lovely! I've been looking for a khaki peacoat for ages, but I'm not that keen on all these Asian shops like Sheinside because, so far, I always had bad luck when it came down to the dress size. Would you consider it to be a regular fit?

I think your blog is already wonderful, but if you added more snippets of NYC (maybe a favorite places feature?) I wouldn't complain. :) I'm moving there next year so I'm already trying to cultivate a list of local hotspots!

Hey Sweets! I absolutely love every aspect of your blog! I especially loved the videos you made of you and Christina in the apt. I wish you could make videos of your nyc adventures captured into a music vid. That would be awesome!! Keep doing YOU! You're amazing!

So pretty! ♡

Joanne said...

I really like how you started posting city photos and just life photos, not only outfits, although your outfits are great, too, but I find that NYC adventures and more everyday life stuff is the best, and you make such nice pictures of simple things! So I guess just keep doing it :)

I don't know if this would bother you, but I found a random picture of you on ebay here:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hot-Sale-Retro-high-waist-pleated-double-layer-chiffon-Short-Mini-Skirt-Dress-/221143812719?pt=US_CSA_WC_Skirts&var=520118702740&hash=item337d32ca6f

It looks like they just randomly copied and pasted your pictures and didn't ask permission. Just thought I'd let you know! Have a wonderful day =]

Voluspa Candles said...

You look stunning with those outfit! Great fashion taste!
I love how you matched the bag with the sweatshirt.

I love outfit posts. Especially since yours are now transitioning to fall and winter out fits. It's my fav time of the year and I don't really get to have much of a winter since I live in Florida.

I love your blog as it is. I find inspiration in both your outfits and the random pics you post. There already are way too many DIY and fashion advice related blogs, and I think the true essence of yours is the vibe you transmit.
