Bon Weekend!

Bon Weekend

Bon Weekend

Bon Weekend

Works Cited--Outfit 4
trousers: loft
striped tee: urban outfitters
sweater: urban outfitters (v. old)
clogs: dansko
belt: old navy
cowl: gap
lipstick: MAC ruby woo (recommended by the effervescent syd, it is indeed awesome)

One thing I knew I wanted in my closet before another 30 for 30 was a red striped shirt. The color red makes me feel super-pretty and powerful, and I was surprised to find I don't own almost any red garments. I decided to spring for a Saint James red and white shirt but when it arrived, it was uncomfortably thick, stiff cotton with a boxy fit and these weirdly baggy arms. It got sent back lickety split and then I was lucky enough to find this super-soft light version for about $20 at urban outfitters (the same one, I think, that Emily has). With red lips, I feel secretly a little glamorous and french even though I'm just wearing jeans and a tee.

You look great!! I've decided this is the year I start wearing red lipstick, so I think I need to try this shade.

That cowl looks so comfortable, like you could just tilt your head to the hide and take a nice nap haha. the lipstick looks beautiful on you as well!

Allison said...

I think you do look a little French! Very classy. I love t-shirts that can be fancied up a little.

I love your striped top. I ordered the same version you did from Saint James and it had to go for all the same reasons. Very cute with the scarf!

Great outfit- you look beautiful!

doctorontheside said...

I LOOOOOVE this outfit! I think I will make a trip to Urban when it warms up, and look for that stripped tee. I'm really into stripes this season for some reason......

My Heart Blogged said...

I really like it, and I agree it reminds me how the french dress. They dress simple, classic, and never too loud. It's all about investing in classic clothes, and proportions. I really love idea of french dressing, and have read a lot of great articles about it.

Anja said...

So cute outfit. You look a bit like a sailor girl, just in winter :) The red lips suit you!

laura said...

the lip colour is amazing on you!

Paige said...

Love the outfit! Subtle chic! Oh and I have that same cowl from Gap in navy!

Jacci said...

Well, you *look* little glamorous and French, so that's probably why you feel it ;) I'm just really loving your style. I suspect your blog is going to be very helpful in shaking up my "too safe" stay at home mom look. These clothes are timeless and could be worn by a wide range of ages, but you look totally youthful and fresh even in classic pieces. Gush gush gush, I know. But I do really like what you put together. :)

academichic said...

You are so cute! This is so Parisian looking, I'm in love :) I want a red striped shirt now! (Even if horizontal stripes aren't a pregnant gal's best friend, I don't care ;) )

It never occurred to me before that I needed a red-striped shirt. But you know, I DO need a red-striped shirt! :-) It's amazing with the lipstick! All you need is a beret! :-)

TaylorMade said...

Great stripped shirt. When I was getting my 30 for 30 together...i am on day 26 (almost done) I laughed when i realized how many nautical stripped shirts I had. Such a great style/pattern for shirts.

myedit said...

The first thing I thought was... great lip colour! Lately I have discovered the power of a nice lip colour. In fact, lately I have refused to wear anything except track pants and lipstick...

AW said...

Tres chic, for sure. This is casual but still put-together.

Kirsten said...

I am sooo in love and jealous of your scarf! I saw it at Gap, and didn't snatch it up and I am now kicking myself!!!

Love the lip color! It has nice pink undertones. For a really vibrant red, I recommend DuWop's Private Red.

I wore red lips and a striped shirt for a study outfit last weekend!

E said...

Oh la la! There is something very French about this look! And the scarf - I want!

Elissa said...

I love this! Yo do look very French, especially with your red lips. I really love hat you wore slightly wide leg pants with the fitted top. I have so many pairs of flared and wide leg pants that I can't figure it how to wear. But you've given me lots of inspiration now!

I LOVE that striped shirt, especially with the dark trouser jeans. Feels a bit nautical to me. Red striped shirt is totally on my "to buy" list now...
