I’ve been living in a version of this outfit on the weekends as of late. It’s comfy, easy and the hat is a no-brainer for those mornings when you just want to roll out bed and head straight to brunch. It’s also comprised of a lot of classic pieces, which reminded me of an old Elle magazine story I kept from years ago: 25 Pieces Every Woman Should Own. A leather jacket, worn-in jeans and the classic striped tee were included.
Before I got a laptop and a Pinterest account, I would spend ages pouring over magazines and tearing out pages that I loved or that inspired me. I had boxes and boxes of them. I think I still have some. It’s fascinating to look back and see what was trendy (and awful) and how some pieces just never go out of style.
What are you still wearing from years and years ago?
P.S. A friendly reminder to vote for me in the User’s Choice Challenge in the Vanity Fair Best Dressed Contest (you can vote once a day).. Would really love to win that $1000 and a trip to NYC!
