J.Crew

Thank You Nancy

I would be lying if I didn't admit that this look was completely, no-doubt-about-it, inspired by The Parent Trap... the 90s version of course. It's a hybrid of the twins' matching yellow looks and the Ralph Lauren button down looks. Thank you, Nancy Meyers for the plethora of sartorial inspiration. Please make another movie, so I can continue this journey.

Sidenote, yellow is the color of my dreams right now, hence this look. Faded yellow looks particularly charming with bright, firetruck red. Throws you for a loop of color confusion. It just works. 

Wearing: J.Crew linen button-down, Levi's vintage denim, Hunza G x Pandora Sykes bikini, and Ray-Ban shades

Location: Montauk, NY

It's been quite some time since I have done a proper outfit post in this neck of the woods.

There is no other way to put it, but life has been more hectic than ever and time is fleeting friends! Because of the heaps of school work and playing catch up from being sick, my free time is not spent sitting on my laptop, but out and about in the world. I'm fully aware of my adjusting schedule and I promise to not less this area of my life falter anymore than it has been. To keep you in the loop, content will be changing around here. I won't be posting as much- simply because I cannot keep up with my normal 3x a week- but the quality will skyrocket through the roof to make up for the lack of, well, my face. Instead of traditional blog posts, the preliminary plan is to produce more digital stories... think more in-depth writing, design, photography. For 2017, I want my blog to paint the best picture of who I am and what I believe in, so let's get going!!

Now, before you depart from my corner of the interweb, this outfit (and another one coming later...) are examples of how to work summer pieces into your winter sartorial playbook. When the cutoffs are less beachy and more structured, they totally are cut out for milder days when paired with funky toppers, boots, and of course, a thick turtleneck.

Coat: Asos, Shorts: The Vintage Twin, Boots: Stuart Weitzman, Sweater: J.Crew

I'm finally sifting through all my Miami photos, beginning with these images from 1 Hotels SB (cannot wait to share my favorite property with you all). For some reason, I'm obsessed with these photos and couldn't wait to get them out to you. First confession of 2016: I'm low-key very into editing photos and was a wee bit too excited regarding these. Whatever, judge all you'd like.

Sailor Does Staples | Rah Rah Roi

One. two. three. Angela Roi is the queen bee. 

So many cheers for Angela Roi. The annoying internet accidentally deleted my post professing my love for my bag, but the short version: A (hella) lot. I don't think it will be separating from my shoulder anytime soon.  Hence, it has become number one on my staples list. 

We are quickly reaching the end of #sailordoestaples, but the second we wrap one series up, another one launches. *oohh & ahhh*

Get ready. November 18th. 

 

Bag: Angela Roi, Jacket: The Reformation, Denim: Asos, Button-down: J.Crew (on sale!)

Blowin' In the Wind

Wearing: J.Crew cardigan (on sale), J.Crew scarf, Jack Wills skirt (suede skirt here), Stuart Weitzman boots (40% off), Saint Laurent bag

Bob Dylan was indeed right when he soulfully sang/talked his famous 1960s song, the answer is blowin' in the wind. Especially when you are standing on a bridge wearing a scarf, whilst it is windy. 

It only seemed fitting to coordinate this with Dylan as my denim mini certainly is some of the attire preppy schoolgirls were wearing during said time. As the 60s and 70s revival has launched a thousand ship(ments) of button front denim and suede skirts 'round the world, I as well followed the face (i.e. skirt). 

To play the schoolgirl role well, a cardigan was the ideal supporting role. Except, when I think of cardigans, flashbacks of itchy wool and awkwardly fitting shoulders cloud my memory. So, I thought to myself, how does one sass up a cardigan? The answer? Well, it isn't blowing in the wind, instead it is when you pull a little switch-a-roo. 

To top things off, we fast-forward into the 70s (Bob was still around), with a matching scarf- author's note: not bought at the same time as sweater-, and middle-parted hair.

Shop the look in which I sport the skirt that launched a thousand everything:
