Let's all say it together now, "I'm ready for Fall". Okay, perhaps you aren't, but I sure am! Summer is normally my favorite season but the weather in New York City the past few months has been nothing short of disappointing. I'm over it. Onto the next.
I wandered into J. Crew today to try on the Winnie Coat.
Fits a bit awkwardly, no? I'm wearing a size 4 in this photo, which is what I normally take at J. Crew. A sales associate advised me to take it off, put a sweater on, and put the coat back on, but I could already tell that there was ample room for something underneath. The bottom is a bit hexagonal, which was unexpected. Yellow is my favorite color and this is a beautiful piece, I'm just not sure.
Fall fashion is always a favorite of mine, but this season I've decided I'm going to make my own trends happen, included but not limited to:
1. Ballet chic. I love all styles associated with ballet. I love buns and ribbons and wrap sweaters and ballet slippers. I recently purchased a pair of light pink tights and am looking forward to pairing it with a wrap and bow flats. Will it work? We will see.
2. Leather pants. That's right. I want a new pair and I want to make them work with a white ruffled top and black stilettos. I have a very distinct image in my mind from my adolescence. Me, in black leather pants and a low cut sweater, getting into the backseat of my boyfriend's mom's Lexus. His eyes widened and his jaw dropped, but he was silent. I didn't realize it then, but I was really taking a risk. Love em or hate em, you'll always surprise people when you wear leather pants. Why oh why didn't I keep them? They were a size 2. Let's all take a moment and mourn in silence for the loss of my hot high school bod. Sigh.
