A Classic Craving

 

It happens every single fall: I want to shed a little of summer’s bohemian vibe and just go simple simple simple. A great   wool coat like this blue Glen Plaid number thrown over a plain sweater and dark jeans is what I’m thinking. Then just a really good boot and bag.  Et voila! You’re like a French girl hoofing it around the Marais with just enough chill in the air.

 

 

Nothing like a great silk blouse to polish anything up. And this one has dark buttons which makes such a difference (white buttons cheapen it for me).
Today Everlane revealed their denim collection, all at fair prices. These dark jeans have an A.P.C. vibe and are only $68.
 

All I want right now is a streamlined un-fussy jodhpur boot and these seem pretty perfect! 
I checked out this slouchy sweater at Madewell the other day and it’s super thin and soft and just what I’m craving.
 
 
I like to think of the Clare V. Sandrine bag as the attainable Celine alternative. It holds a laptop and everything else you might need for the day.

    Too bad Everlane can’t acknowledge women who wear a size 16, at least.

    I love the Everlane jeans! They really do have an APC vibe. But I’ll wait to purchase until I see some reviews come in.

    Love the Sandrine bag!!!

    Are mock-necks a thing again? (My son-in-law makes fun of them!) 😉

    Hi Andrea – Love your blog and The Cool Factor : ) ‘Classic’ question for you – I just bought semi-distressed looking brown leather Sebago penny loafers. What are your thoughts on socks with loafers? If I can’t figure out how to wear these in cold Midwestern winters they’ll be going back unfortunately. Thanks!

    Ok I have to ask – cutesy socks? Or white socks? I feel like I could get this so wrong ; )
