Birdie Forever





Outfit Details:
Rachel Antonoff Birdie Forever sweatshirt - c/o ModCloth
cut off shorts - Free People
tights - Bloomingdales
Carol Marie bracelets 
bag - c/o Brahmin
Jeffrey Campbell boots - LF 
collar - JewelMint
lipstick - Bobbi Brown Roseberry
glasses - Ray-Ban
Presley the dog - my cousin Claudia's

I have two types of go-tos in my closet and they are on opposite ends of the spectrum: cotton dresses and denim cut-offs. Okay, three, because you know I wear my motorcycle jacket with both variations. I wear one or both every single week, which is why my collaboration with Cotton was a no-brainer. I can throw on a cotton day dress and look put together with just one garment, or pair it with tights and a jacket when it's colder. My vintage ones have stayed in my closet for years, and will probably always make the cut. That's the great thing about vintage: the older it gets, the better. I feel the same way about denim.

My cut-offs aren't quite as polished (understatement), but they're just as easy to throw on with anything and run out the door. This pair is quite literally falling apart, which makes me love them even more. The zipper broke last year, and instead of replacing it (which I am more than qualified but less inclined to do), I sewed it shut and now I just pull them on and off. I never said I was classy, you guys. But I did mention that I used to major in musical theatre, didn't I? Since this sweatshirt combines a love of musicals and Rachel Antonoff - two of my favorite things! - I had to have it. I have a feeling it will be another one of those pieces that stays in my closet forever. Vintage dresses, cut-offs, and Birdie, forever.

  27. Hi! I've been following your blog for a few months and I'm really a fan! Your looks are always great! But I was wondering.... When will you make a post about how to look so stylish when it's winter and that you have to ride a bicycle! I don't know if you dress like this in "real life", but aren't you never cold or feeling over dressed? You would maybe say that to be beautiful we have to suffer...But we're women of the 21st century not of the 50's! So would you accept my challenge and make a post about being stylish even when it's freezing cold? Thanks for reading me, and keep making us dream!
