By now you probably know that we generally don’t “dress up” up in the Dacks. That doesn’t mean that fashion is completely sacrificed. It’s just that what feels right is less about trend and more about whatever it is you’re up to. And I for one find that a welcome relief from NYC’s (and the Blogosphere’s and Instagrams’s) sometimes unrelenting emphasis on “of the moment” style. Yes, it’s fun to have a bag the It Girls covet or get compliments on your OOTD, but it’s also fun to just keep it simple and see where the day takes you.
As you can see, this look took me straight to a soft serve “twist” at Noonmark Diner. Woo hoo! We were actually headed back to JC, so the sting of leaving the amazing Adirondacks on a glorious September day was softened a bit by this sweet indulgence.
I love the cozy but cool attitude of this sweater. Its subtle color, open sleeves and ruffle cuffs all add up to something special. All I can say is it feels so gooood on. And it’s going to Santa fe with me tomorrow. The jeans are cropped and frayed bootcut in a medium/dark wash that’s perfect for transitioning from Summer into Fall. My favorite slip-on Cons keep the autumnal mood going. And how cute is this baby fox tote? I could not resist it. Farmer’s Market here I come!
