Shopping Trip: Lou & Grey

Today I’m partnering with Lou & Grey, an offshoot of Ann Taylor LOFT that elevates loungewear by using textural fabrics and on trend silhouettes to create a collection of easy living pieces with a bit of edge. There are nubby oversize popovers, drawstring pants tailored enough to wear outdoors, stripey knit moto jackets, worn denim, a multitude of leggings, and soft drapey tees.

Interspersed with the Lou & Grey clothing, which is done in a palette of grey and oatmeal, with chambray, indigo, and shots of burgundy, is delicate, on-trend jewelry (lots of triangles) by makers that include Zoe Comings from Austin and New Refined Basics from Portland. There are also colorblock canvas pouches by Bittle & Burley and amazing candles in scents of storm, charcoal, and bone in handmade ceramic pots; both makers are out of Brooklyn. In addition, there are organic beauty products, matte ceramic canisters with cork tops, herringbone throws, stacks of Kinfolk magazines, and a carefully edited selection of books. 

The decor is perfect, with white wood plank floors, copper pipe clothes rails, table bases, and pendants, marble slabs, oak shelving, linen fitting room curtains, and leather hooks. It actually looks a lot like a gorgeous South End condo that I wrote about in the Boston Globe Magazine last Sunday. Lou & Grey is pretty much Pinterest come alive.

I visited the new Lou & Grey retail space at the Natick Mall outside Boston. (There’s a store open in Westport, CT too. I’ll definitely stop by when I’m there for Thanksgiving.) Let’s take the tour.

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, along with an appearance of concert tees from yesteryear.

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.

Just In: Madewell Fall 2014

As usual, seeing how I live in Boston, I was unable to attend the press preview of the Madewell Fall 2014 collection. However, my darling friend Meredith was up for the schlepp downtown, and snapped these photos for me. I know it’s barely even spring here, but who doesn’t appreciate a sneak peek? Although many of the items were scattered with French phrases,  and had a bit of a French hippie grunge flavor, the official Madewell Fall 2014 theme is actually more along the lines of easy living in urban America.
