new neutrals

2nd November, 2011
olive and khaki are the more casual alternative to my beloved black and white ~ and together they recently made for an effortless outfit comprised of all my new favorite pieces!let’s start with the hat, shall we? i bought it at victor osborne, when i was in the store pulling pieces for a shoot. i’m so excited that my hair’s gotten long enough to peek out from underneath hats just in time for fall, and this one’s been getting a ton of wear already.
THIS DRESS is another much-loved piece lately. actually, i’m surprised by just how much i’ve worn it in the short time we’ve been together. it worked with flat sandals for a night-out in puerto rico, then with black tights and a blazer for a birthday party back in new york. and of course, i also wore it with my favorite fall boots on the fine afternoon when these photos were taken!
THE JACKET was a gift from white + warren ~ which i was so grateful to receive, as i’d been on the hunt for a cold-weather workhorse to fill the roll in my wardrobe that THIS VEST played all summer. speaking of white + warren, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter the giveaway i’m hosting with them!! we’ll announce a winner tomorrow.

all in all, i felt like this ensemble encapsulated where my style is right now. it was tailored but relaxed, and layered but unfussy ~ just the way i like to feel!!{ victor osborne hat, elizabeth & james sunnies, gifted white + warren jacket, E1 london dress courtesy of modcloth, michael kors watch, gifted coach clutch, alexander wang boots }
