Wardrobe staples

8/1/11





vintage denim vest, vintage silk blazer, Nordstrom wool hat, Forever 21 crochet top/boots, American Rag shorts

As always, I'm hitting all my faves at once: denim, black tights, shorts, big hat, and something silky. The past two weeks I've been salivating over fall looks and pieces -- yes, it has been 80+ degrees but meh, it's August and for that alone I have reason to start peeping what's in store for autumn. I'm falling in love with shearling/wool, boots, backpacks, hats, and scarves all over again and I couldn't help but pick up this floppy wool hat from the Nordstrom sale early last week during their anniversary sale. I've come to appreciate wool for its versatility and renewable fibers after visiting the We Heart Wool website... and plus, wool just screams autumn and winter.

I was recently approached about the possibility of joining Blogger's Wardrobe, a network that connects bloggers with worldwide brands. I hope to participate and fulfill my ambitions as an amateur stylist and photographer, capturing the finer things in life. Ultimately, Blogger's Wardrobe provides the quintessential blogger's dream: clothing, soirees, travel, and more. Sounds amazing, right? Check out ways you might be able to join here.

I swear I'm jeals everytime I see those boots *sigh*. They have that old school Doc Martens feel but with heels. Anyway, I've been obsessed with denim vests for summer too, and I just picked up a wool floppy hat for fall too. yay!

And... I can't wait til this killer heat dies down. I feel like LA has had the summer weather since December. Kinda over it already and can't wait for Fall and hopefully it gets cooler that time. I want to start wearing my scarves already without dying from a heatstroke.


So pretty like always!

The Little Dust Princess said...

Beautiful layering, Jen. you make me lust for fall.

The Key To Chic said...

As hard as it is to shop for fall when it's hot, I am certainly looking forward to fall. I'm leaning towards Peter Pan collars, creepers, 1960s dresses, flared jeans, and anything with fringe. Just found your blog, and I'm bookmarking it. I'll be back soon, love your style!

Christine said...

def. agree these have to be essential items in every girls closet! I was totally wearing something similar to your outfit to work today XD I love you floppy hat!
