What I'm Wearing: October 2012

I've been getting a lot of emails and Formspring questions lately about what I'm wearing now that fall is (sadly) here, and rather than answer them all, I thought I'd save time by posting about it here. The truth is that I've been incredibly busy lately, so my dressing has had to become very formulaic. Style is important, but warmth and practicality are also key. My base is really just jeans, comfortable shoes, a tote and a sweater - sounds boring right? I don't think so. My jeans are always printed and patterned, my knits luxe and cozy, and my shoes are never basic - whether they be flats with a rich colour and fabric like the Jenni Kayne's below, or suede wedges like the Isabel Marants (are wedges not God's gift to women? They give the same leg-lengthening effect as heels without being mercilessly uncomfortable.) Ultimately, accessories are what turns a blah outfit into something really stylish. I like to wear a big statement necklace or a wide brimmed hat (or both!) to pull the look together.

  2. You are so right there are many ways to be comfortable without looking blah. I'm working on taking that step of boring outfits to comfortable and put-together. Great post.

  7. Liz I love this idea! I totally want to stock up on printed pants, but I have such a hard time finding anything in my size. My mother just brought me back two chunky knit sweaters from Paris, which ACTUALLY FIT. WOOhoooo. You know what this means? I definitely need to make a trip to France and buy my winter wardrobe... Or else, or else I'll dieeee a frigid death. [We'll see if this excuse works on the parentals. lolz]

  8. Love these pieces, especially the printed pants. I've been following a similar formula now that I'm in the midst of midterms and a crazy school/fashion schedule.

  11. I'm pretty much having a lustful relationship with that hat right now. I'm such a hat lover, and that one is gorgeous. I'm not exactly a pant person, but all of these pants are so amazing I'd definitely wear them.
