kate

 

prepping for a long weekend in aspen for labor day + my birthday with chilly temps at night there right now so i am looking forward to pulling out some fall garb. feeling particularly bohemian lately and therefore/always looking towards the boho queen herself for that inspirational pull. also, will be hitting up this music festival and who has better concert style than kate moss? alexa chung, maybe. anyway, i'm thinking fur vests, white lace dresses over black tights, + cut offs, boots, stripes, etc. for some live music.

thigh highs + knee highs

such a fan. pair with a longer, fuller skirt like the cherry blossom girl for a more feminine + less overtly sexy look. how would you wear them?

hint: try these, these + these. I sleep in these sometimes, so cozy and cute.

nicole de rivals

i've had my eye on rumi's nicole de rivals cow hide bag for some time now and i'm thinking i kind of have to have it. love how chic it looks paired with all black and how awesome i can imagine it would be for traveling. a gift for the upcoming birthday, perhaps? here's hoping (wink wink).

miroslava duma

i love miroslava's style, and have since back when she had her longer locks and was making her debut on the sartorialist. this is one of my all time favorite looks of hers, but really she can do no wrong in my book. i love how she ties the red leather jacket into the pop of red on her peep toe loubs. this look is great for fall because it incorporates three major trends: leather, ladylike + black and white.

get it here:

1. forever 21 belt $6.80 {here}
2. rachel leigh jewelry society studs $40 {here}
3. asos chiffon sleeveless pussybow blouse $46 {here
4. marc jacobs ruffled organza top {here}
5. louboutin prive peep toe pumps {here}  
6. asos leather stripe mini skirt {here}
7. asos kookai leather mini skirt {here}

chaps

whaaaat? these jeans are insaaaane!{here}

L.S.D style

i absolutely adore lauren santo domingo's sense of style. she remains classic + timeless with the perfect touches of modernity. these photos have been around for a while, but this outfit is definitely still worth emulating. a classic white blazer (i chose a tuxedo look to keep it fresh + updated) is great for spring + summer to throw on with shorts or over a printed dress, but can also be carried into fall when  paired with black, for example. as i have mentioned before, suede booties are an awesome transitional piece {see here} and the PS1 is classic enough of an "it" bag to take you from season to season, and keep you updated on the structured, handheld bag trend this fall. get the look here:

1. eddie borgo cone bracelet {here}
2.  threadsense khaki scalloped shorts {here}
3. proenza PS1 large leather satchel {here}
4. elizabeth and james base printed booties {here}
5. zara tuxedo blazer {here}

bold gold

constantly inspired by grecian + roman influenced bold gold pieces, especially when worn in pairs with solid black or white + a tan {see here}. splurge on these margiela arm cuffs, or nab these amazing kora hammered cuffs for $175. pair them with a sleek, solid colored maxi or mini LBD or LWD and you're set.

lina sandberg street style perfection

lina sandberg exuding absolute street style perfection. these louis vuitton shawls {hers is this one in blue/gray} are close to the size of a blanket. i wear mine all winter long and use it as a my chicest and best travel companion. leather pants are a must for fall {lina's are from zara} and don't necessarily have to be tight + sexy but rather can be worn a tad slouchy with a flat boot for a daytime look.

fall trend: fur


in addition to rich burgundy + cognac hues {see here}, fall trends are all about leather, fur, ladylike accessories , subdued shimmer + color blocking {think burgundy paired with red}. fur + leather worn together is said to be fall's power couple. fur is a statement investment and now incorporated by so many designers you don't necessarily have to break the bank to get there. and of course, faux fur is no longer a faux pas thanks to the stella mccartney's who turned vegan chic. here are a few of my faves from around the web:

1. alice by temperly faux fur sleeveless gilet {here}
2. asos yumi mink faux fur coat {
here} *only $77.50!
3. MICHAEL michael kors cropped shearling jeacket {here}
4. topshop black contrast sheepskin biker jacket {here}
5. maison martin margiela mongolian trimmed coat {here}
6. Michael michael kors belted shearling vest {here}
7. diesel w-dat fur vest {here}
8. DVF loretta rabbit coat {here}  
9. anna sui mid length faux fur coat {here}

dogtown

part 90's, part ralph lauren, all feminine. summer isn't over yet. courtesy of stone cold fox. {here}.


a neighbor of mine spotted my josie by natori top while i was taking oscie for a stroll and asked if she could take my picture to send to the designer, her good friend in NYC. of course i happily agreed and asked her to email it to me as well. i have always known natori for their beautifully crafted lingerie, but was not turned onto the clever basics of josie by natori until discovering this little number on sale at saks. i layered it over my beloved stone cold fox lace shorts and paired it with a skinny patent belt for shape. i have already begun to live in my sam edelman alvin slippers {last seen here}.
