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.
