Recent Look: Silk & Stripes



Love the unexpectedness of a casual striped top paired with a silky skirt. Brought out the Chloe Edith bag (which hasn't seen the light of day in over a year!) to bring some structure to the look. I would have worn cuter shoes had I not been on my way to a 1st birthday party with A in tow. Oh..woulda coulda prada! (Does anyone remember that line from Will & Grace?)

 Muji breton striped shirt, White + Warren silk pleated skirt, Aritzia fatigue jacket, Linea Pelle belt, Chloe Edith handbag, Gap City flats


This was my first official "photo shoot" if stopping the car for literally 2 minutes with all the doors open (since baby A was still in her car seat) counts. I was extremely awkward and did not feel comfortable posing at all! I don't know how so many of you fashion bloggers make it look so natural and fun! Any tips?

I've been looking everywhere for a blue and white striped shirt and haven't had any luck. These Muji ones look so great on you and I love how you paired them with a silky, pleated skirt. So feminine!

That Chloe bag is gorg! Outfit is super cute. Probably after a few times being photographed in public you'll get over the looks. ;) On the rare occasion that I have pics taken in public I just pretend like I'm a tourist. LOL.

Janice: Actually, no one was there but I just felt awkward posing by myself.

You are SO adorable! I love the juxtaposition between the top and skirt, and that bag is absolutely STUNNING.

AH, love the stripes with the creamy peach skirt! It looks so summery but so fall when you paired it with the jacket.

Your pics are great - I'm sure that after a while it will start feeling natural to you (although I don't have personal experience - I freeze up when asked to pose LOL!)

I love the bag and belt combo - and you look so lovely in the 2nd photo!

You look gorgeous - I love the whole look with the jacket, and I can't believe you don't use that bag more often!

Well.. I use a self timer on my camera so I think I'd look pretty dorky trying to take photos out and about!

Love the flats, and I am seriously considering switching from heels to flats, cos, I just can't hack the pain, and I bring my flats with me anyway.. Tory burch is on my list..

Looking fab as ever..

U look good!! Maybe James can do model shoots with u to get more comfy with the camera. He did model shoots for akira and workshops with the davis'. ;)

Oh, I love this look, that skirt is flirty and cute.
Why did you tease me with that Chloe Edith. I've never loved a Chloe bag more than when they produced the Edith. It's one of my favorites.

Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

You look gorgeous, and the outfit is amazing!! My advice about posing, just let it come natural. Have whoever takes your pictures to catch you while you are doing something so he captures the more natural look, so it doesn't come off as over-done or fake pose. Be silly and have fun. That's what I do. I actually love these photos. You look stunning.

Gorgeous outfit, GORGEOUS bag. Being a new blogger, I am still VERY uncomfortable with taking pictures. Especially in a public venue! You look great!
