So for today’s post I thought that I would bring you some of the outfits I wore this week. As I’ve said before most everything is old and I re-wear clothes (oh the humanity!). But because I take care of them they continue to live. I took the photos on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to show you what my typical outfits look like. Now because I live in NYC black is the go to option for most everything (see Monday and Wednesday) and let’s face it, it’s easy. It’s like black is quintessential to being a NY’er. No other city does all black as well as NYC and in a city that is this dirty and grimy black is it. I found a great article that I think sums it up from The Cut. “We wear black because we’re not tourists here to see a show; because we are, in a sense, with the band. The band is New York, and the color is black.” As they say, all black eurrything….
Friday is all about jeans and my new top from Banana (Yea I treated myself gurl). Now mind you all week I have rocked my little anorak jacket from Old Navy that I bought like 6 years ago. Best $5 spent and like all things, take care of your stuff and things will last.
My point is this invest in quality pieces (take your cues from Europeans) and layer in fun throw away pieces that are trendy. Not only does it make dressing easier but it’s fiscally sound and leaves you more money to go do shit like eating with friends, movies, and the stuff people do.
So here is the run down
All the jewelry is mostly Chloe+Isabel with some personal pieces
Clothing is a mix of Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, New Balance and Aldo Shoes because guess what at a certain point you know what brands work with your body type and these are it.
All my photos are taken with my trusty iPhone because guess what I don’t have anyone to take them for me. But I like to think you , my readers, are ok with that because guess what…it makes me normal like you. I also don’t filter anything or retouch I want you to see the real me. Now I want to go on a shopping bender…FML #adulting sucks
