I'm getting my haircut today for the first time in 2 years. It's definitely due! Even though I'm not doing anything super crazy...I'm excited for a little change and I'm sure my wardrobe will feel different and new. Isn't it weird how that works? A few inches can make certain articles of clothing look that much better! I'm excited to wear more fur, interesting collars, jewelry that my long lifeless hair was hiding/ruining.
Loving this editorial. It's the perfect mix of ladylike and menswear inspired. All the pieces are so attainable and wearable. And I want her hair...everyday. I've also noticed a trend in editorials lately with models smiling, which is so refreshing. Fashion is not serious or depressing!
As someone with a very fixed income, I simply cannot succumb to premium denim prices..especially when they are in the overall variety. I posted the Mother Denim version awhile ago and still think sweetly of their warm tobacco color and amazing fit. I'm thinking of getting my fix with the classic Carhartt version. They take care of my need for overalls(did I really say that?!) and the color. They are also lined in flannel and actually take care of my real winter needs. I'm gonna go for a Boys XL for a more fitted shape, because for once my freakishly short torso will come in handy.
Some home decor inspiration for the coming months. Moving soon and cannot wait to have a larger space to showcase some of the pieces I've already collected and to finally feel like I can buy the bigger pieces that I've held off purchasing since my place is the size of a sardine can. As you can see, I have a love for modern lines mixed with bulky antique pieces. And no matter what, I can't get avacado/magenta/teal/yellow out of my head. It's just the ideal color palette for every inch of my future home. And rugs. Hmmmmm...rugs...the older and more threadbare the better.
Tweed and Latex. The perfect marriage. Both demand clean, precise lines but offer such different feelings whilst wearing. Tweed is warm and soft and makes you feel safe. Latex is cold and hard and makes you feel dangerous. I love that clothing/textiles can give an emotion. And combining two such different emotions completes a perfect harmonious outfit.
I seriously feel like some of my choices in fashion are my way subconsciously to not grow up and feel old. I mean, safety pins...really. But these are so good and it's not like I just want to rip a tshirt up and safety pin it back together...well I kind of do..but I'll refrain...for now. I love the images above because it takes such a simple object and takes it to a higher place. A place that you don't question taste, class, or age. But a place that makes you stand back and admire such complex simplicity.
Now...I kind of feel like I'm making excuses for my need for safety pin experimentation but I'm a grown ass woman and I do what I want.
