The System

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of uniforms. I was probably the only girl in high school who was more than content with the dress code (with slight rule breakers of course) and despite my interest in fashion and the constant need to be the first one to try something new as a blogger or always do something different, I’ve always felt more comfortable when I’m wearing my wardrobe staples. That’s probably why when you see me on a regular day I’ll be wearing pretty much the same things: tapered pants, boyfriend jeans, basic t-shirts or tank tops, simple non-stretch maxi dresses, oversized sweaters and my most comfortable pair of shoes. This style formula has never failed me and now we have a brand that’s creating and delivering that formula for us. Introducing EILEEN FISHER and The System ladies and gentlemen. With a focus on 8 core pieces at the heart of the system, EILEEN FISHER wants to show the world we can do more with less, buy fewer pieces and still create endless …

Red Riding Boot

Mark your calendars and celebrate with me every year the day I wore red boots (so close to Christmas which means risking a Santa vibe on top of the fact that I ACTUALLY WORE a vibrant COLOR as part of my main look) because even as I’m writing these words all I can see are the boots and it weirds me out like crazy. It feels good to get out my comfort zone every now and then but I can’t help but imagine this outfit with black boots instead, how are you people wearing colors on top of colors, prints on top of prints and still be that comfortable? Know that you’re truly amazing. You da real MVPs. . White long shirt dress Rodebjer (similar here & here) . Trench coat Lartigent (similar here & here) .

Gone Rogue

No, in fact, there’s nothing rebellious about my outfit other than the fact that I’m still mad enough to go bare ankle so the name of the post is indeed referring to the latest Star Wars movie which I just saw (and LOVED) today. If you’re following me on Instagram and watched my stories you might know that I’m a big Star Wars fan, one who watches the entire trilogy at least 2-3 times a year (and the battle scenes of the prequels every now and then) and one who was skeptical when Disney first acquired the movie rights but was eventually content after watching The Force Awakens, though not completely satisfied as to why that movie was even necessary in the first place. Rogue One however, managed to exceed all my expectations with an amazing story line and an orgasmic Darth Vader scene (no further spoilers) so I’m a happy little fan today. .

Lazy & Lazier

Winter makes me lazy, and I’m willing to bet the end result is far more sloppy than you or anyone you know has ever looked during winter. I’m talking about you wouldn’t recognize me on the street because all I want to wear are wool leggings with short UGGs, long puffy jacket with a beanie and double scarves and I want to wear this everyday. I usually lose my willing to go out, dress up, socialize or even go grocery shopping so it’s no surprise that my outfits get a lot more basic during the obligatory winter-tire months. The surprising thing is, as the rest of the world aims to up their layering game I’m trying to wear as less layers as possible (less layers = less fainting on subway) which means fabrics like pure wool or cashmere dominate my wardrobe the most and the color scheme pretty much limits itself to white tops and black skinny jeans. Winter breaks me people, I’m broken. And this is my basic winter bitch look, as pretty looking …

Combat Winter

I know these boots are called after military wear but don’t you think there was a little, just a little nuance in it that implied people should wear these while combating winter? The minute it snowed (which is now doomsday in my world, despite some people that still get as happy as a kid when the land turns white) I knew for a fact that for the next – oh I don’t know – 4 months, these are all I’ll be wearing but I was determined to make the outfit a little more me, a little more fashionable at least. Here’s to the first of many, many snowy, slushy, icy outfit photos! . Camel sweater COS (similar here & here) . Light brown teddy coat Front Row Shop (similar here & here) .
