 Sometimes all you need is one simple detail to transform an outfit. My weekend uniform is for the most part, skinny jeans, sneakers or booties, a big sweater and a warm coat. Simple enough. But add a gorgeous vintage scarf to the mix and this outfit just went to a whole different level. I “long term borrowed” this one from my Mom, but there’s tons of great vintage scarves on eBay, at your local vintage shop, or at The Real Real.

GRID PRINT SWEATER AND HOUNDSTOOTH COAT + NORDSTROM GIVEAWAY

grid print sweater, houndstooth coat, blanket scarf, monkstrap flats, ombre hair, brahmin vivian satchel

PHOTOGRAPHY BY CRAIG MACKAY

GRID PRINT SWEATER C/O // HOUNDSTOOTH COAT C/O // PONTE LEGGINGS C/O // MONK STRAP FLATS // SIMILAR BLANKET SCARF // SUNGLASSES // LIPSTICK IN DOLCE VITA // BRAHMIN SATCHEL // PERLO JEWELRY BRACELET AND RING // 

I almost NEVER wear leggings. Unless I’m exercising which is not as often as it should be they just kind of freak me out as an option for pants. So a few weeks ago I ordered these ponte leggings from Talbots, and to my surprise they are actually quite a nice alternative. They’re quite thick so they look closer to a slim trouser than leggings. The elastic waistband is comfortable and the length hits at the perfect spot right above the ankle (FYI I ordered petite). I wore them with this longer grid print sweater and houndstooth coat which are a nice length for wearing with leggings. For a casual weekend outfit or maybe even workwear (depending on your office dress code) these are certainly an option worth considering!

STRIPED CROPPED SWEATER

CROPPED STRIPED SWEATER (ON SALE + 40% off use code ENDOFSEASON) // DENIM SHIRT // J BRAND JEANS // LOAFERS (ON SALE) // CLUTCH // PEARL CUFF // RED LIPSTICK // SUNGLASSES // RING

What is it about stripes and pops of red that feel so nautical? I’m not a huge fan of anything too literal when it comes to personal style but sometimes I love a simple and classic combo, like a a striped shirt and matte red lip.

MORE NAUTICAL FAVORITES

I paired this striped cropped sweater with denim for a more casual vibe, but I also love a crisp white button down with stripes. I’ve also been really obsessed with matte red lipstick lately. A few of my favorites are Nars Lipstick Pencil in Dragon Girl, Nars Lipstick in Red Lizard and Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in BesoI’m all about a red lip during the day, but keep the rest of your look simple. I typically wear a light foundation and subtle mascara.

The one thing in your closet that you can always count on, your denim.

Craig has his favorite pairs, and I have mine. You know, those jeans that no matter what, you always reach for. They make you feel good and they make you look good. We were both excited to try out DL1961 Denim because they are a technology-based denim company that creates jeans specifically to make your butt look good. Something I can definitely get on board with! Their jeans have a 4 way stretch which means they don’t sag (that drives me nuts when my jeans get baggy in the knees after one wear) and are insanely comfortable. Truth be told I’ve been wearing my Emmas almost every day. Craig went with the Nick slim and was really happy with the fit which can be tough for him because he’s really tall but slender so he was psyched that they were slim but not tight. They also have a fit guide on their website so you can find the perfect denim for your body type. Their spring collection features cool vintage details like ripped knees and relaxed fits. On my wishlist is the Lolita slim and the Joy (so excited flares are back!). Because he’s always running around shooting photos or biking, Craig’s pick is the Russell because the cross weave technology makes them odor resistant and the antibacterial & moisture wicking fabric prevents sweating. That’s some serious denim! This week there are also tons of styles on sale. Use code DLMLK for 25% off.

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what to wear!

 Craig and I tend to have a more low key Valentine’s Day like cooking dinner at home in our pjs or going out for dinner and being home by 8 to watch Netflix. This year though, we will be in NY for fashion week, so we’ll probably go out to dinner and maybe even go to a show that night. If you’re thinking of dressing up for a night on the town I love pairing a midi skirt with a cozy sweater. I got this silk heart print blouse at J.Crew a few years ago and I always break it out around Valentine’s Day (love this one from Equipment). Paired with some comfortable booties this is the perfect style to take you from desk to drinks and dinner.

Lately I’ve been drawn to things with texture. There’s something about neutral colors with strong texture that evoke an almost romantic feeling and at the same time feel a bit like wearable art.

There’s texture all around us, and if you take a moment to soak in your surroundings, be aware, you’ll see how inspiring it can be. Mother Nature’s textures are one of my favorite things to observe; the waves crashing on the rocks, a dusting of snow on the ground, the wind across the water.

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” — Albert Einstein
