March 2024 retrospective – Blue Collar Red Lipstick

Facts: H&M major (retail), Ralph Lauren vest, InWear blazer, BDG jeans, vintage belt, Dooney bag (all secondhand)

Thoughts: Guysssss! This is it! I last but not least located my palazzo denims — the model I have been hunting for almost 2 yrs. They ended up really worth the hold out, I really like them so significantly. This one is called the BDG Puddle jean. I assume there may possibly be various variations with the very same title, however, due to the fact the one’s I’ve found on Poshmark underneath that label appear distinct. Why am I wanting for one more pair on Poshmark? Due to the fact my daughter also enjoys them and has been hoping to steal this pair ever because I found it. Indeed, good friends, a new period is dawning: my daughter is setting up to dress in the same clothing as me. Occasionally actually. She’s not really as tall as me (nevertheless!!) but her inseam is virtually as lengthy as mine *cries in long-torso-limited-legs* In any case, the jeans are remarkable. As is this wide wale corduroy blazer/jacket. I have not had a correct black blazer for a when, but couldn’t resist this just one. I’m currently obsessed with corduroy, and I’m also actually leaning into a 70s academia vibe — this blazer is great on each counts. I have been carrying it a good deal lately … as you will quickly see.

Specifics: Ralph Lauren skirt, sweater & shirt, Silverado jacket, Nocona belt, Laredo boots (all secondhand)

Ideas: The climate has been so up-and-down currently, it’s challenging to know how to prepare outfits from day to working day, but I usually check out to consider edge of hotter temps any time they grace us. This outfit getting a scenario in level. I am so enthusiastic for spring (and summer time) and all of the layering choices, specifically in Trailblazer method like below.

Aspects: Club Monaco turtleneck (retail, outdated), Ralph Lauren sweater & jacket, Cleo skirt, Coach bag, Place of work London sneakers (all secondhand)

Thoughts: I get in touch with this my Escape to the State outfit — IYKYK. I appreciate this earthy color palette. Words and phrases I under no circumstances imagined would appear out of my mouth, for the reason that I applied to be the sort of human being who only experienced 2 modes: black or rainbow. I nonetheless appreciate bright colours (summer season will verify that) but it’s legitimate that I have been drifting absent from black lately — specifically weighty doses of black. Brown and brown-adjacent shades look to in shape my current aesthetic much greater, and are also likely more flattering to my colouring. I’ll under no circumstances swear off black fully, but I’m having fun with my Brown Period of time really a whole lot … even if it sounds so, so wrong, lol!

Facts: J.Crew shirt, Pitlochry sweater, Ralph Lauren skirt, Paloma Picasso belt (all secondhand)

Feelings: Talking of brown, hah! I loved this sweater-skirt combo, with the peek of blue to liven up the browns. The belt was the excellent extra contact. It is a tricky one particular to put on for the reason that of the chain — however the chain is what can make it specific — but it worked here for the reason that the skirt has no belt loops to interfere with it.

Specifics: Ralph Lauren shirt, Pendleton blazer, H&M pants, Hole belt (all secondhand)

Feelings: I enjoyed this very simple sample mix a large amount, not minimum due to the fact it options some of my fave colors. I’ve arrive to enjoy the versatility of khaki/tan pants as component of the Ivy-adjacent aesthetic of the Historian. I guess there’s a cause why they’re a traditional. Gentle-coloured trousers make it sense like a spring/summer time ensemble, even with a darker jacket. Getting notes for later on in the yr.

Specifics: Tahari shirt, Ralph Lauren sweater, Twik skirt, InWear blazer, Gap belt (all secondhand)

Feelings: I experienced to go into the place of work a couple weeks ago, and this was the outfit I chose. I needed some thing a minor preppy but not way too buttoned up. The skirt and blazer are the two vast wale corduroy and, although not an actual matching set, go together very properly. The chambray shirt was the appropriate preference to stability out the common cable knit sweater. I really do not like wearing pretty brilliant colours to the business office, but I also want to hold my private aesthetic in the mix, and an outfit like this represents a excellent balance for me.

Specifics: Club Monaco turtleneck (retail, aged), Everlane sweater, InWear blazer, no label skirt, Sonoma belt, Mentor bag (all secondhand)

Ideas: Fall 2010 is just one of the Ralph Lauren runway collections that life lease absolutely free in my head. It’s a big inspiration for the Bohemian avatar. It featured lots of muted, earthy colors frothy floral silk attire and skirts and contrasting textures. I have been searching for 1 of those people maxi attire or skirts for decades now. No luck. Recently, I uncovered this classic (unlabelled) skirt at the thrifts, which has a identical vibe even even though it is much less floaty (and not silk, alas). I made a decision to get it as a placeholder for the time remaining. It is also reversible, with a little ditsy floral sample on the other aspect. To achieve the RL vibe, I paired it with a cashmere sweater and my trusty corduroy jacket. Gimme all the textures!

Particulars: Everlane turtleneck, Pitlochry sweater, BDG jeans, Nine West jacket, Dooney bag (all secondhand)

Feelings: I consider it is ideal to bookend this outfit roundup with an additional palazzo jean suit, featuring a few of other fave items which includes this Shetland sweater and my beloved leather-based bomber jacket. I wasn’t kidding when I said I was experience a 70s variety of vibe. Dig it?
