I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
La Petite Princess Look
Hands down one of my favourite outfits. I plan on repeating this. I love the way the shirt of one of my favourite books Le Petit Prince peeks out from this high-waisted, draped skirt. I usually belt it with my favourite Burberry trench coat belt (from an old trench), but I changed it up with an MM Lafleur belt instead and like the look if it. I even have the book in French and in a pop-up book I got in Paris, and the graphic print and I love it so much in a shirt. I’d even want to get another shirt, but from The Hungry Caterpillar or something fun.
The belt, if you’re interested, looks like this and is now on sale for 50% off:
The leather tote is the Large Carryall from an Australian brand Paterson and Salisbury that is gorgeous, and now has doubled in price since a decade ago (this makes total sense, everything has gone up in price) if you want the exact same, stunning tote.
I also added a stunning J. Crew necklace in greens, blues and purples to go with the entire look, you can’t even see how beautiful it is, so here’s another outfit shot to show you how beautiful this necklace is:
The shoes are stunning wedges in the softest leather possible, and they’re gorgeous as well as comfortable. I bought them in NYC with one of my best friends, and I had hesitated on it because ANOTHER PAIR of neutral shoes? But I love the T-strap sort of wedge style that is comfortable to walk in, and they look great.
I should have probably added a huge statement rock on the hand because I am missing something on my left hand!! I need a huge YSL arty ring or something like a drusy rock.
The way I came up with this look, was I started with the tank top. What could I wear with it? I loved the graphic print, it has dark blue in it, yellows and greens.. and decided to make it a star by choosing a draped skirt that would let me blouse out the tank without just letting it hang out, sloppily.
After that, it was easy – I just threw on a belt to hold the paperbag waist skirt up and make it look finished, and picked up the greens and yellow in the shirt to match it in the necklace. I chose a collar necklace rather than a pendant because I wanted the tee to be the focal point, and not distracted by a dangling piece of jewellery. The rest is just neutral accessory picking – a tote bag, and some wedges, depending on where I plan on going (obviously walking a lot, as I am in wedges not stilettos).
