I THINK . . .


My boyfriend was looking over my shoulder when he heard me say "oof, no no no" to this look below. He immediately exclaimed "What?! That's what you wear every day!" And to that i quickly explained that if she left the cowboy boots, keychain trinkets, foxtail, scarf and half the jewelry at home it would much more closely resemble my lazy day uniform. Simplicity is key.

Same goes for this lady. If she scraped off half her makeup, let down her locks, went with the belt or the scarf and removed the head/ear jewels it would be an unstoppable look. And those oxfords are amazing.

This girl has the Parisian thing down pat. I don't like her boots but those pants and jacket make everything more than ok. Very Parisian Annie Hall.

I think this girl is just adorable. Clean face, fun pattern mixing and classic rain boots (worn during rain boot appropriate weather).

I like this whole look as well. Dusty rose is an underrated color.

Trend overload: shearling, shredding, long stacked necklaces, a hint of leopard, tie dye jeggings, and a strappy leather purse thing. I definitely like her neutral pallet though.

I agree, and I see so many photos like this that I often wonder if I don't have enough extraness to my outfit. This reminds me of The Man Repeller's post on how to get street style photograped and she keeps piling the layers and accessories on.

I always liked the philosophy of looking at yourself in the mirror after getting dressed to go out and removing one thing. Simplicity is elegance.

I really do like the style in that first photo, but some of the chosen accessories are a bit obnoxious. I agree with your theory on simplicity, but if carefully chosen, accessories can complete a look.

The second to last photo is my fave!

Check out my blog as I'd love to see what your opinion is on some of my outfit choices ;)

I quite like this post. Interesting to see what, in your opinion, makes a good outfit stand out from a bad one.

The thing that bothers me the most about the first look is that she has the fox tail on a purse with a short strap so it's sticking out of her armpit. Weeeird.

I'm also rather obsessed with dusty warm colors lately.
