What I Wore: Shirt (Popbasic; Similar Here), Jeans (American Eagle), Belt (Similar Here), Hat (Similar Here), Bracelet (Popbasic; Similar Here), Boots (Crown Vintage)


Taken before my trip (and therefore before all the snow and bad weather hit- oh, everywhere), this outfit was born from Pinterest inspiration; I don't even have the pin anymore (I regularly cull my "Clothes I Like page." Am I the only one that does that? Is that weird?). Several pieces are new- I'll get to that in a minute- but what I really love is that they are all keep-forever pieces, classic "investments."

All of the new items were off of either my List from this summer or my updated List from this fall. The striped shirt you've seen once before, but it was from The List. Though these jeans are flare jeans, not boyfriend (Wow. Talk about an unflattering cut on me. Good thing flares worked well too), they were on the list. It is so nice to have another pair, even if they are relegated to after-hours or weekend wear. Last, but certainly not least, are the ankle boots. After searching high and low, I finally found black leather boots with a brown heel!!! It was basically like finding the Holy Grail- practically impossible but all the more sweet when I did it. These babies are seriously comfy too, even after tromping around in them for hours sightseeing, they worked for my feet! What is best about all of these pieces though is- as much as I love this laid-back seventies look- these babies just keep getting remixed and remixed.

Okay. I'll be catching up on life (and on blogs and commenting!), but in the meantime, tell me- what's new with you?

  3. Looking good lady! The 70s style suits you! Every once in awhile I weed out my Pinterest boards but I should probably do it more often :) I love the bracelet!

  7. This whole outfit reminds me of Lauren Hutton. And that is a good thing.

  8. The best pieces really are the ones that you can wear a million ways. They'll serve you well until the bittersweet end. :)

    Love the way you brought out the 70's, especially with the trench!

  9. Oh those heels look a DREAM- I want to high five you for finding them! And I absolutely love this outfit- it has all the best pieces. Stripes, floppy hats, trench coats...what's not to love? I also really enjoy that you stick to your "must need" lists and slowly but regularly get all the pieces. It inspired me to start my own list, which is quickly being converted into my christmas wish list, haha. Also, I definitely update my Pretty Looks board on pinterest, too! Sometimes I get bored of certain looks and I just nip them right out of there. Ruthless.

  10. I have both an "outfits to try" and "clothes I just love" pinboard. I need to follow you on Pinterest! I need to get better at using them when I get dressed! Great, classic pieces here. Don't you love how all cuts of jeans are back in style again? I had a few flaired pairs that are all too small now :/ so I would love to get another pair! You totally do look 70's dreamy.

    What's new with me- I'm in California for the holiday! I am wearing a dress with no tights and no sweater!!

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  11. I feel like this is such a signature outfit. I love how classically chic you look! I'm also catching up on blogs today, it's weird how it can just get away from you so quickly!

  12. LOVE your boots! And that coat is a dream. It's the most frustrating thing when there are all these cute coats to buy but with the warmer SoCal weather, I'd get little wear out of them haha so I'm limited to buying like one coat every season. I've also been catching up on blogs! As well as making some time to post myself. Hope you've been well!

    xo, Serli
