One Look: Graphic Sweater + Edgy Leather Midi

If you know me, you know my color of choice for clothing (and accessories for that matter) is grey. I dressed baby #1 in grey onesies so we were twinsies, and baby #2 (now a big boy) inherited my preferences, sporting grey heather tees so often I’m afraid the school thinks I don’t do the laundry. (He has like 4 of them. Really.)

I still haven’t used my new textured grey leather tote from Madewell. (Should I return it? I really like it though.) (By the, way, all sale items at Madewell are 30% off with code PICKMEUP, including a boxy leather trim sweatshirt and oversize gray satchel.)  My slightly fancier (and definitely more ladylike) Tory Burch grey flannel satchel has yet to arrive. I’ve been sporting my high rise skinny gray jeans whenever I leave the house, so probably that won’t mesh anyway.

What denim brand has everyone been wearing lately? I pretty much have only worn Madewell denim for the past couple of years. I learned yesterday that one of the major players in that arena is now at AYR, a women’s spinoff of the men’s label Bonobos. AYR had a popup at Bonobos yesterday and I stopped by. Rather than stocking everything in every size, the “guideshop” as the retail store is called, has one of everything in every size. You browse, try on, then order. (Ordering in store earns a 20% discount off  online prices.) I got a dark wash skinny jean (so comfortable) and a fall jacket, which looked so-so on the hanger but great on. They pieces will be delivered today via UPS. One day turnaround. The line is comprised of basic, minimalist, must-have pieces. I loved what I saw.

This Thursday’s One Look (what did you think of last week’s debut One Look?) is the ultimate black and grey outfit that is at once casual, pulled together, simple, and slightly edge. That leather midi skirt is genius (can you believe its from Reiss?), and the pebbled grey leather fringey bag so FW15. (It’s from Shopbop where everything is 25% off today. For real) And those platform oxfords. (Brings me back to the ”90s when Robert Clergerie was my shoe go to.) As for the sunglasses, while I’m not personally a fan of the animal print, I am officially in love with Illesteva. Wear it well.

One Look: Perfect Casual Autumn Outfit

I haven’t done a lot of shopping this fall, but did get a few pieces, including a textured grey leather tote from Madewell. And this Tory Burch grey flannel satchel is on its way, as well as these black moto pants from A.Ruby. I’m thinking I need a chunky knit and a new pair of booties, preferably the Rag & Bone Newbury hair on leather bootie (though doubtful I’ll buy them). I also must go try on leather slip-ons, a total must have. I love these Irini slip-ons with shearling details by Loeffler Randall.

Yesterday I was at Club Monaco to meet their head of men’s design Aaron Levine, who has overhauled the men’s offerings (now amazing, or as he says, “tasty”) and was admiring the Oriel plaid overcoat. I also just discovered Illesteva sunglasses. The website has a build your own sunglasses tool that is inspiring me to order up a new pair for Art Basel Miami. (Yes, I made my reservations.)

We’re going to the Cape this weekend to close up the house for winter. It can be nice to go out there in the off-season, but mostly it’s just freezing and desolate. It should be perfectly crisp and gorgeous now though (I hope). I’ve pulled together the perfect casual fall outfit today, inspired by October in New England. There’s tortoiseshell, cable-knit, plaid, wood, gold, textured leather, and colorblock suede.

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: 22 Digital Print Dresses

Following up on yesterday’s street style post “Style Right Now: 14 Digital Print Looks,” I pulled together 22 digital print dresses for you. (Actually, a couple of them are long T-shirts, but you could totally wear one as a summer dress if you’re petite, or thrown over a bathing suit.) Of course I won’t actually be wearing any (with red hair and freckles I’ve got enough going on without adding a print) but I really do love the digital print look, especially the landscape-y, photographic ones. I totally adore #1 and #14 is pretty cool, but then again, so is everything she does.

Get the Look: Party Dresses From All the Best Designers

Selecting the holiday party dresses here was more fun than going shopping for the real thing. The list of designers reads like a Vogue editor’s Fashion Week to-do list. There are 42 different designers represented here, each dress more fun than the next. Probably you won’t be able to actually buy many of these, thanks to the sky high prices, but still, they are divine.

If I were going to a holiday party, and I could wear any of them (and this is in dreamland, where I have the perfect body to match my bottomless wallet), I think I’d opt for the Rachel Roy or Marc Jacobs, though I do also love the drape-y metallic Vivienne Westwood and the darling Nina Ricci. I also love the idea of the Isabel Marant with black booties, topped with a leather moto jacket. I suppose it depends on the occasion. They’re all pretty fabulous. Which holiday party dress would you wear to a fancy fete?

Get the Look: 24 Floral Fashions For Summer

Did Thursday’s 26 Floral Street Style Looks inspire you to mix in a bit of floral lovin’? Even if you’re not ready for a full-on floral dress (and really, who am I to talk), you could try it out with a tank or hey, a thong. I’m thinking a floral iPhone case would work for me. I do love looking at these though, even if I’m not wearing them. So fun. If you love the floral-print shoes (I’m slightly obsessed with the Loeffler Randall pair here, and the Jimmy Choo floral-printed python platform), you can also check out my floral shoe roundup, “Petal Power” in Sunday’s Boston Globe.
