Brights + Stripes.


Fact: I am a creature of habit. I have my favorite things that I wear over and over and over again until they are disgusting and can’t even be given away. When we were shooting these photos I reached for my Burberry Trench and Lydia {my friend and blog photographer} looked at me and was like, “Um, can we please not do the trench today?” This made me giggle. Because yes. I reach for that thing day in and day out. But I love that trench. I splurged on it with a tax refund four years ago and have since worn it to death.

She suggested wearing my yellow coat {above} and I initially balked, thinking I’d be wearing all of the things. Stripes, more stripes, a shoe with a bow, iridescent earrings… yikes. Way. too. much. But it actually worked in the end… so we left it. Thank you, Lydia!

  16. Can never go wrong with that yellow; what a fun pop… stripes + brights are so my thing. Didn’t realize but I continually gravitate toward them, too. These UGG wedges are insane perfection. Definitely having shoe envy, lady!

    I am also a creature of habit. If it’s my favorite, then why would I want to wear anything else? 😉 Though I suppose it’s always good to mix things up. And I am IN LOVE with those wedges! Gah! They are so perfect in every possible way.
