classics


There is something so classic, timeless about black and white stripes. It's such a simple look but has the potential to be so elegant and chic. Something Audrey Hepburn might wear in say, Paris. New York has been bustling these last few days with fashion week in full swing. Everyone is out, dressed up in the latest trends, but for some reason, I'm not feeling it this year. In a sea of colorful midi skirts and crop tops I've been craving simplicity. 

When getting dressed yesterday, I thought of Audrey and Paris and got back to basics. I have had this shirt for years and it has steadily remained a wardrobe favorite. I wear it too often, but I love it and I love having items of clothing that I still want to wear at least once a week years later. I've had these pants for quite a while too. They came with me on my trip to Italy two years ago. I topped them off with black flats and a simple gold necklace.

Happy Wednesday everyone, and thank you for reading!

  4. I agree, nothing wrong with all of the fabulosity of NYFW but it is refreshing to see the simplicity of your outfit. You're casual but still well put together. I like this look as it's more of a modern downtown Audrey. Low hanging pony tail compared to the sleek pulled & under pinned pony tail she did. Also, your fitting is more relaxed & not as body conscious as AH did. I appreciate your look & I believe most other girls will also as it will be very attainable to mimic the look. You look so cute.

  12. You're speaking my language here! I always go by the mantra, "Less is more." While I love a fun and youthful trend, I find that sticking to what looks best on you...timeless, classic looks will always be fool proof. Perfection from head to toe :)
