The best fashion advice I’ve ever received is that trends are the best way to blend in. Everyone shops at the same four places – especially if, like me, you live somewhere like the Midwest where all we have are malls. This means you’re bound to run into someone wearing the exact same outfit as you. If you want to be unique with your styling, try online shopping or boutiques in other cities. They carry a unique, always rotating collection.
The five things I can’t live without are a great coat, sunglasses, anything black, a smart duffel bag and my DSLR – what else would I use to capture my #ootd?
A wool-blend tweed topcoat from Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label is top of my winter wish list. It's beautifully made-by-hand with peak lapels, plaid wool, crafted in Italy, and a double-breasted silhouette. It’s a pure dream coat. But my most recent purchase was a pair of sunglasses from J Crew.
My everyday outfit formula is a top tucked into a pair of jeans or khakis with loafers. As something with no real waistline, I tuck in everything I wear to give the appearance that I’m taller. Right now, a green field jacket from J Crew is getting a lot of airtime. This is probably my longest lasting piece. It goes with everything, perfect for fall, and it’s my favourite shade of green. The only thing I would never wear is yellow. Anything that remotely resembles the shade has been banned indefinitely from my life and future children’s lives.
