Outfit: The Classics

This outfit is just me.  Easy, classic, and yes – a little safe…  As I get older I just stick to what works.  I’m most comfortable in navy + white… preferably with some stripes here or there.  This Chinti & Parker tee is a new favorite.  It has a nice boxy fit and I love the contrasting pocket.  I got the jacket at J.Crew last year — can’t believe it took me so long to invest in a navy peacoat… if you ask me, it’s the one thing you truly need for winter.

Anyway…  it’s been a long week already and I’m excited that we’re almost to the weekend!  Also… you guys know how much I LOVE The Ropes Maine… (wearing one in the photo below.)  I couldn’t be more excited that her collection goes on sale at BaubleBar today at 11am!

    Such a cute casual outfit – I am the same way as I get older; I like to stick to the classics & what looks clean & polished. 🙂

    I think easy and classic is the way to go sometimes. You could be wandering the streets of the Village or in the Hamptons with this look, and I love that. Also, we need to have a conversation about how gorgeous your hair looks here. Not fair!

  11. Cathleen says 3.14.13

    That’s a nice classic outfit. Very classy. I need to make this bracelet happen for me.

  12. Hes says 3.14.13

    This is a lovely outfit. I got tired of waiting for spring and wore white jeans today, too.

  13. This is a great example of how to wear white in the cooler months, some people say “safe” I say – classic! Personally I don’t think outfit posts need to be so outrageous i.e. wearing every item you have in your closet and look like your going to a fashion show. That isn’t everyday dressing. I love this because it’s real life, It’s what people want to wear and can use for inspiration on things they may already own. Plus your hair looks fab!

    Love your shirt, the contrasting pocket is so cute!

    Your hair looks amazing here! Although it does most of the time… 🙂

  16. Sarah Pickell says 3.14.13

    love this outfit! classic and simple. I really love the square pop of blue on the side of the striped shirt!

  17. Emily says 3.14.13

    Cute look! I love the simplicity of this outfit.
    I still haven’t invested in a navy blue peacoat! I know, I know…what’s wrong with me? Perhaps that’ll be my big spring purchase.
    Isn’t That Charming.

  18. alyson says 3.14.13

    Totally the same; most days are my usual suspects… jeans, and a striped shirt. 🙂

  19. Rachel says 3.14.13

    Safe and classic is sometimes the best way to go (and by sometimes I mean “usually”)!

  20. chelsie says 3.14.13

    this reminds me to invest in my own navy pea coat – so lovely!

  21. Monique says 3.14.13

    That top is great! Love the winter white too!

  22. Oh, the Hermes watch. I’ve been lusting after it for 5 years. Is it sad that it’s always my favorite part of any outfit post? Meanwhile…you make aviators look really good!

  23. I just love boxy tees! You look so fab in your sunglasses!

  24. Sarah says 3.14.13

    So lovely and classic, just like you! I adore the navy jacket with the white pants. Awesome pairing!

  25. can we just get a post where you talk about your fab hair? cause i’m obsessed.
    p.s. – love that surprise pocket.

  26. Sara says 3.14.13

    I feel like this is totally me. I love classics so much. I find that I tend to wear simple (not boring! ha) colors all the time and occasionally will spice things up. I just feel more comfortable in things that I know pair well together. Love that bracelet!

  27. Sam says 3.14.13

    Love the simplicity of this outfit. Certain pieces are classics for a reason, and that’s why we can wear them again and again! xo

  28. Emma Finlayson says 3.14.13

    Classic and polished. Great look on you!

  29. Yes to the classics!!! You look so cute. Ummm that bag!?!? Amazing! Love the contrast of the striped pocket!! xoxo
