Backwards March

With the extra hour of daylight, I've had more time to take pictures. Looking back on March, I hit some sartorial high notes. I do best sticking to my three piece formula and with clothes that don’t require fuss. An effortless wardrobe actually takes quite a bit of effort. Not only on my part, but there’s work going on behind the seams too. I would be lost without the help of skilled seamstresses.

  1. i agree with you 100% about a seamstress...that is the key to looking sharp! I absolutely love your styling too with these outfits...especially your black theyskens skirt! that silhouette is amazing. Glad we see eye to eye on that theyskens type of mermaid silhouette ! :)

  4. You sure have luck finding clothes! We have limited options up here. I'm 5'3" with a size 7 shoe and have one heck of a time. I hear you about the seamstress. I just had a pair of brand new jeans ruined by a hem that is too short.

  7. The floor length skirts really does make wonders for you!

    I rather agree on the "no fuss" dressing... and I'd also never fail to acknowledge the reliability of a navy blazer. It's forever!!!

  9. Great style! My favourites are the nautical look (I've wanted a pair of wide legged trousers for such a long time) and the all-white outfit.

  10. Liking the silhouette you cut in your long skirts mixed with fitted blazers. Having found a pleated floor-length skirt, I realise I should really wear it more often.

  12. my trusted tailor back in NYC is one of the reasons i'd think twice about moving! yeah you're totally right about effortlessness + great fit. and of course the more tailored to fit the better :)

    i love how you pull off the maxi skirt. i'm inspired by a long skirt this season, but we'll see how practical it is for daytime around here...

  14. Wow! What a style file - I love the looks you've put together with maxi skirts - so elegant!

  15. I love the dramatic silhouettte of the long skirts. What I find very interesting in the way you wear them is that you bring an edge and casual approach whereas I tend to stick with the basic boho vibe of that garnment and I find your styling inspiring.

  17. Wow, it's the definitive Pret's greatest hits! I'm choosing favourites.. middle row right, the nautical theme.. and yes, like Stephanie said, I'd love to see more of the Chanel jacket.. it is such a delight seeing you embracing white, Miss P! Wishing you a happy spring - I think of you often.

  18. The Theory blazer is beautiful - you certainly possess the secret to styling jackets! I'm rather in awe of it to tell the truth, because it is something I could never quite get the hang of. Love the white also.....your take on style always suggests something equally mysterious & poetic, for me. It makes me think, which is a good thing.
