Today I was amazed to find that matching my earrings to my boots created an interesting sense of cohesion within this outfit. I may have done the same thing in dozens of other outfits before, but the concept just clicked today.
Have you had any recent dressing-related...
I wrote this post about my new Edwin denim jacket last week, but it doesn't make quite clear just how much I'm in love with the piece. First off: I don't do double denim. So I give up wearing jeans whenever I want to wear this jacket. Which is pretty often. That says something, don't you...

) The conference is all day, and I knew I'd be doing plenty of walking and talking, but also lots of sitting and listening so I chose comfy, drapey fabrics and tough accents. For a more buttoned-up conference I'd have gone formal, but since this one is teeming with artists, musicians,...
I wasn't planning to pile on the trends when I assembled this outfit, but was happy to find a new way to wear this cozy houndstooth moto from last year. I love it zipped, but am also digging the exaggerated collar that's created when it's worn open.
