reflections on reflections

A lot of times, when we’re taking outfit pictures, we’re trying to make sure that we don’t capture my reflection in a window or the reflection of whoever is taking my photo.  But, for this shoot, I actually kind of love how my reflection played out.  I also love dressing this comfortably and actually being able to be outside without a coat in January (sorry mid-westerners and east-coasters).  Outfit details below!

the long cardigan

I’m feeling really excited by a trend I’ve been seeing lately on blogs and my favorite online stores…the long cardigan!  If done wrong, it can feel kind of dowdy.  If done right, it can look totally cool and timeless.  You might remember this street style picture of blogger Sincerely, Jules in her long cardigan, which kind of got my wheels turning.  I wanted to share with you all a few long cardigan options that I’m loving.

The above cardigan is from Zara.  I love the print!

A lovely kimono-style option from Asos.

A cozy option from Asos.

If you’re feeling rich, a designer version from Lauren Manoogian.

And a minimal wool cashmere version from Cos.

I’ve been anticipating this launch ever since I saw Elizabeth Suzann post on Instagram about the bag below.  I can’t get over the design.  It’s simple and impactful.  It comes in two sizes and the colors are just perfection.  Elizabeth’s brand is one that I truly admire and I love supporting a small designer.  Now…which color to choose? :)

shopping in your own closet

I recently undertook the daunting task of organizing our closet in our new apartment.  We’re lucky enough to have a pretty sizable walk-in closet that we share, which we have never really had before.  When we moved in, we went as far as to hang our clothes and stack folded sweaters, but that was pretty much it.  Since then, I’ve organized everything by style and color and added few organizational pieces that have been amazingly useful.  I created shoe racks by using tension rods and added some crates to the top shelf that I turned on their sides for added organization.  I can now see everything in the closet and pull all sorts of things out that I sort of forgot I had.  One of those items is this green hobo bag, which I got on a trip to Italy.  My mom calls finding forgotten clothing items “shopping in your own closet.”  Mom, you’re a genius.  But you already knew that.  Just stop trying to “shop in my closet.”

zara s/s 2015 collection

As you might remember, I was Zara crazed for quite a while.  I’ve taken a bit of a step back from “fast fashion” brands as best as I can to try to invest in higher quality clothing.  But the other day I went to the Zara website and fell in love with their spring/summer 2015 collection.  I love the the mix of soft colors and the different proportions achieved from layering.  So lovely.
