“Everyone has a favorite t-shirt. It may be old or new, it may have been passed down to you, bought in a store, at a gig or stolen from an ex boyfriend/ girlfriend. Trusty favorite t-shirts come into our lives in many ways. This faded t-shirt is one of my favorites, the bear’s name is Ralph and we found each other in a thrift store, I usually wear him with jeans but dressed him up with an orange skirt and some silver chain necklaces for an adventure weekend. Due to the wind another favorite came along, my faithful army jacket”
ALISON FROM CHAIN STRAP PURSE
Ever since I pinned this picture the other day I’ve been inspired to put together a navy blue and denim combo. But instead of jeans, I decided to put my own twist on the look and do chambray instead. I also don’t feel like this shirt gets enough love (can you believe I’ve only worn it on the blog once before!?) so I’m trying to give it its fair share!
Additionally, I love that this outfit can be dressed up or down based on your shoes. I went with heels, but this would be perfect for weekend errands if you swapped them out for a pair of flats. Ahh, versatility!
Shirt: J.Crew (similar), Skirt: Forever 21 (similar with a really cute bow!), Shoes: Guess, Belt: H&M (similar belt that I also have and love), Clutch: ASOS (similar), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Cuff: Loehmann’s, Bangle:Macy’s (similar), Watch: Michael Kors
KATIE WARREN FROM GO KATE SHOOT
Bopping around, it is often the little details of people’s looks that strike me. In this week’s photos, we have quite an array of distinctive accessories. A hand-made porcelain padlock necklace by a student at the Corcoran is actually light and delicate to the touch. In that same vein, a masculine hat worn with a sweet butterfly pin and a pairing of metallic and diamond necklaces plays up those same ideas of hard and soft. Finally, you can’t help but love a classic cool floppy felted hat and over-sized hoop earrings that shout out to funkier days. Right on.
MELANIE FROM LA BELLE MEL
As you know, the first thing I did when I hit the city was taking the subway straight to Ladurée located on the Upper East Side. All the times that I’ve been to NYC, I never had a reason to go to the Upper East Side until now and also had no idea that one street can hold so many wonderful stores.
I wanted something comfy to wear around the city, so decided to try out my new tweed jacket No. 5 from MyUniqueen and definitely like this slimmer version a lot better compared to my winter one. From my convo with Jean at Extrapetite, she brought it to my attention that the No.5 fit on this jacket was definitely much more petite-friendly. The shoulders fit me well and the jacket is definitely slimmer all around. Only slight complaint I have are for the sleeves which are about two inches longer; I ended up tucking them under for the time being. You can find seven colors on the site, which I was having a hard time choosing between the cream, yellow or brown. Eventually, I decided on the brown since there were more contrasting colors that give the jacket its unique look.
LINDA FROM NOMNOMBLINGBLINGI didn’t realize that my clothes from today’s post were all from Old Navy until I started writing this post, which prompted me to think about style and cost. I bought both the blouse and shorts on clearance for an incredible price–the blouse was about $8 and the shorts were $5!! Style does not mean that you have to buy the latest trend or an expensive shirt, jeans, etc. to look fashionable. Style is how one interprets clothes by putting their own spin on it, whether it was pricey or not.
