Get the Look: 20 Modern Doormats

In true New England fashion, the Boston is not quite sure whether it’s winter yet or now. There were a few really cold days, including a recent Sunday when my 12-year-old went to a Patriots game in the rain and snow. I don’t mind the chilliness (I’m a tights and boots girl for sure) as long as there’s sun. That day did incite me to unearth the ice scraper and transfer it to the car. Not looking forward to using it.

Since we live in an apartment, most of the slush (and there’s plenty of it), gets left in the lobby. But still, we have a good doormat outside our door, and a more decorative one inside. Come snowy times, additional rugs get spread across the foyer, so as not to completely destroy my Jill Rosenwald gray area rug.

I know this is all kind of mundane, but I live in Boston, in the city. That means messy weather and no mud room. Even if you have a house with a white picket fence in a tropical clime, you still need a doormat, right? I’ve rounded up some door mats today, mainly coir and natural coconut fiber doormats; mostly modern doormats, many colorful doormats, plus neutrals, some in adorable silhouettes.

Get the Look: 20 Handbags with Fringe

People have pretty particular feelings about fringe. I get it. Fringe can be all too hippie chick, or hokey cowgirl (now that’s fringe gone woefully astray). My husband is not a fan of fringe. He doesn’t even like the the lone leather strip of fringe that hangs from each zipper of my beloved Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Crossbody Bag. (I have teal, for special color occasions, but I just got a grey one that I use multiple times a week.)  My editor at the Globe Magazine has rejected a fringe fashion style page. (No matter, I’m turning one into my editor at the Globe newspaper instead.)

Following up on yesterday’s post Street Style: 28 Fashions with Fringe, I sourced 20 fringed handbags for you. In addition to the black & white Tribale Fringed Bag by Lanvin (LOVE but not willing to sell my soul), I’m kinda grooving on the simple and affordable #3. Tell me if you have any fringe-y plans for yourself this fall.

Get the Look: 18 Graphic Picture Tees

Now that the weather is a bit warmer, I have abandoned by ankle length Patagonia puffer (attractive look, I know). I love wearing an edgy T-shirt underneath a blazer. There’s been an abundance of model and street style T-shirts on the market (for example, at Zalando), along with an appearance of concert tees from yesteryear (plenty at Forever 21).

I’ve actually gotten a couple of cute, casual striped blazers at Gap over the last year which have been a staple, along with a cream and navy stripe Tory Burch blazer from several years ago. (The Tory Burch Augusta Jacket, which is a similar idea but with much wider stripes, is on sale. Also, try Gap; maybe the Classic Stripe Blazer) Perhaps I need to do a spring blazers for daytime post!

In the meantime, let’s look at some at some digital photo graphic tees. Kate Moss and Audrey are my faves.

Get the Look: 43 Graphic T-Shirts

So did you mix a tee shirt with a tailored jacket or sequined shirt like I asked you to in my graphic T-shirt street style post on Friday? Are you ready to step up to some edgier, sassier sayings? I think it’s easier to mix these simple graphic T-shirts with sayings on them than the ones with pictures, since these are relatively straightforward. Of course, if you’re self-conscious about people reading your chest, that’s a whole other issues. And, as the T-shirt says, “You’ve got more issues than Vogue.” Pick one, buy it, wear it.
