  2. This is a fun idea for a post, and I like what you've done with the outfit a lot. Whenever I add accessories they always seem to be jewelry, for some reason, but you've got me thinking that I've been going about this accessorizing thing entirely the wrong way. You've also got me obsessed with that vest.

  3. love love that vest.

    i find that when an outfit is lacking something, a nice printed scarf is often the answer.

  4. I can't believe that's a Kenneth Cole bag - it looks so gorgeous and high end. Great find.

  5. Strong and classic, lovely as usual. Saint Laurent would be proud.

    I always find it tricky to match blacks - only a few black items on my closet go with each other. Do you have much trouble with that?

  9. Precisely. You have a great lean look to begin with, but the extras you put together with it send it over the top.

  10. I actually really love the tee, even if it is just one from Target. I keep thinking I'd like to save up and get some from Bassike or Silent, but then I just fall back to Uniqlo and Muji lol. Oh and I love that scarf.
