HENRY HOLBROOK AND FAMILY, ACCORDING TO SIR BUSTER LORD VOLDEMORT, III



sometimes i take photos of my outfit while i'm waiting on elevators. 
i know, that's really lame.

since i've been deleting all the photos off my phone,
i thought it'd be silly to catalogue these outfit shots right here. and why not?




from the bumbo day






i remember for a half second almost wearing this "necklace" outside, whoops! mom fashion.







shirt i didn't buy but wanted to.





there.
fascinating!

  3. So I love that you're not a style blogger (because jeez I read enough fashion blogs already and I loveeeee your more honest life posts). BUT can you maybe include more random shots of your outfits here and there? Your style is, quite simply put, magical.

  7. Don't get me wrong, I love your blog, but posts like these are a little over the top. We get it. You have high self esteem and you love your clothes. You just don't need to be so *obvious* with your narcissism. Sorry. I know that comes off bitchy but after reading for so long I just couldn't blow smoke up your ass like everyone else.

    1. this is precisely why i'm not a fashion blogger! it just doesn't work for me, does it? p.s. i'm oddly flattered you think i have high self esteem.

      Delete
    2. Hmmm... you don't have high self esteem? You should! You are beautiful and DO have a rockin' body after having a kid. (I'm on my third kid and will NEVER in a MILLION years be able to shop at forever 21 again.... which is REALLY sad...) Now, maybe it sounds like I am blowing smoke up your ass ;)

    4. I think the outfits posts are inspiring. UT gets a little weird with it's style, so it's fun to see some urban looks. Keep'em coming, it is your blog after all! lol
      PS NEED the striped skirt. Source pretty please?

    5. Hey, I like her fashion posts and so do a lot of other people. If they bother you then don't read them. I would actually prefer MORE posts about Nat's clothes because I think she has an interesting style and I like pictures of people's outfits.

      Don't be mean.

      Delete
    6. Colleen you sound a bit jealous. Nat you are amazing and I am sure 99% of your readers want MORE outfit posts and pics of you. Your blog is sorry popular because you are ADORABLE.

    1. I knew it would come across rude, but honestly, I didn't MEAN for it to be. I do love her blog and her kid is freaking adorable. I just wanted to keep it honest. Think what you want. People put themselves out there when they write blogs.... that's how it goes. I am always sure to compliment when I feel the other way, as well.

  12. let's all be nice to colleen! (BOTH colleens!) she was polite about it and she's got every right to her opinion. but thank you for wanting to defend me ;).

  13. ahh i always want to take pictures like this, but im scared about the looks I might get! people in Philly arent as friendly as those in New York, I practically get shanked for even stopping to look in a mirror let alone take a picture! keep it up girl!

  17. I think your style is tops! It's simple yet totally spot on.
    And I especially heart that you found a way to mention Clueless in this post, cause that movie? It runs deep. ♥

  20. striped skirt is from Anthro last summer, got the same one and loved it ;) Blogged about it as well, ha!

    Also, PS Natalie - Please please please do a shoe post! I know that sounds weird but I am in a footwear rut as to what to wear with a toddler and your shoes are awesome in so many of these pics! And who cares if you arent a fashion blogger, I get more ideas from REAL moms and peeps like me :)

    2. This makes me laugh. I did the exact same thing to the exact same old navy maxi dress!

  22. I love this post- fun to see "real girl" style with pieces I might actually buy. I saw you at Alt and you have a great sense of style- very unique (in a good way!) And I love that striped skirt- bummed I never saw it at Anthropologie.

  24. I always want to take more pictures with my phone while I'm out but I feel like people will look at me funny so I admire that you just do it. Do people look at you funny?? Should I just take the pictures??

  25. I love the outfits! I was just wondering where the sweater is from in the Bumbo post? It's probably a little late now but I've been looking for one like that this WHOLE winter!

  26. always buy the white shirts. and the black. and the gray. i wear mine into the ground. adorable. and enjoyable! and i love the "smoke up the ass" comment. good show on letting everyone comment and being graceful and honest with your followers

    ReplyDelete
  27. So I'm loving your strappy heels in the 6th pic down... where are they from? I hope the above comment doesn't stop you from posting your outfits in the future... I love seeing them and need all the inspiration I can get.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That long striped skirt is sinful. Love it to bits. P.S. How did you get the "reply" thing in your comment form? Help!

  30. Um, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the one where your wearing that awesome white coat and that beanie that I so desperately want now! That outfit is definitely my FAVE. Although, I don't think that warm of a hat would be necessary in AZ....

    ReplyDelete
  31. nothing pithy to say, but did want to toss my hat in the "cute!" pile. *laugh* i like the flowery skirt, particularly. and also your poses make me smile. : )

  32. I know it was a topic of discussion earlier. And that it was a, em, controversial one? But as I was reading this post, I clicked through from my reader (WHICH I'M REALLY BAD ABOUT DOING) so I could comment and tell you...

    ...I mean. Girl. Do outfit posts.

    ReplyDelete
  33. All fashion bloggers should adopt this way of doing outfit posts. Shoot maybe even I will. Saves all the time of having the husand take the picture and instagram will edit the pictures for me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love these outfits. All of them. I wish i had your style. End of story.

  35. Natalie - just wanted to chime in and say I don't comment often, but I adore your blog & IG feed. I love these little slices of life from NYC!

    I think having an innate sense of style is a gift and there is nothing wrong with sharing that. I hope the response of a few doesn't cause you to have second thoughts on sharing this part of your life. I've been a blogger for over six years, and I'm a big believer in whole-life living and whole-life blogging.

    Thank you for making yourself available to us! You are quite a bit younger and quite a bit slimmer than I am, but I'm always inspired by the outfits you put together!

    b} i need to go in forever 21 more as i am seriously missing out.

  42. Where did you get that long striped skirt? I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like your fashion posts a lot. You should probably add a 'what we wore' because I bet a lot people would like to know where you bought stuff for you and your baby. Some items I recognize, but others I don't.

    ReplyDelete
  44. ooooh where'd you get that gold iphone case?!!

  45. I think your style is AMAZING!!!

  46. I love your outfits!! Thanks for posting! That striped skirt is inspiring. And also, I think the diet coke adds to the overall thugness of your facial expression, which is awesome if you ask me. (I've been following your blog for a while now and am just now commenting... guess that makes me a creeper?)

  47. I love them all but especially the Saltwaters and that white cable knit sweater!

  48. so funny..love your spontaneous mirror shots...sometimes that's all we get. Are those the Target leopard jeans...I tried them on but decided not to buy. They made my butt look weird, may need to go back!
