Hi Gorgeous Birds,
For this week’s outfit post, I embrace another of my favorite staple (uniform) looks: the sailor.
My playful sailor broken down from head to toe: I can’t make it through the winter with out wearing my favorite Borsalino sailor cap. I love it because, other than being one of the best hat styles ever invented, it’s chic and adds just the right edge to any look and it’s lined on the inside, a detail that helps keep the moisture locked in my relaxed hair. Cute and functional is always a plus for me!
Let’s talk about this Acne Studios coat that I fell in love with the moment that I saw it in the showroom. “Wowza, yes, I need this,” I thought, with a “this is sooo nice,” for good measure. So you can be sure that I ran to the Acne store in New York at the end of the Summer to guarantee that I got one. When it’s good and you love it, you can’t wait around, not even a minute.
As you probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of stripe tops, dutifully collecting them whenever I find just the right ones (sleeve length, color combos, fabrications, quality) – like the one that I’m wearing from Miu Miu‘s FW14 collection which was a clever nod to the iconic sailor Popeye’s love Olive.
And yes, I’m still fully immersed in my “I love white in the winter phase.” It doesn’t look like the now habit is subsiding, so prepare yourself for countless future winter-whitecentric posts where I wear various pairs of white jeans like these skinnies by Jbrand. I really can’t help myself on this one.
And yes, I also refuse to take off my Miu Miu booties, they’re just too good people. I did write the word uniform in the parenthesis above… (wink). What looks are you enjoying this week?
