I wasn't going anywhere special on Monday. I had a headache, and the weather was rather dreary. But I came up with this outfit which I am obsessed with — to the point that I re-created it in 2 hand painted illustrations. Crazy fashion girl that I am.
Ink and gouache on drawing paper.
: my husband's straw fedora – bought in a pinch at the Asbury Park, NJ boardwalk
: black & white buffalo check shirt – J. Crew, thrifted
: floral-on-black shawl with fringe – vintage, in all its polyester glory, gifted by a friend
: black jeans – Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted
: white, eyelet cotton sneakers – Keds, which I managed to snag a couple of years ago from either Gilt or 6pm.com
: black tote bag
Style Lesson of the Day:
Try a completely glamorous, outrageous shawl instead of a cardigan or jacket.
For the win.
