GET ME DRESSED // 007


i've always had this bias against navy blue. since i'm in blue denim just about every day of the week i worry about possibly looking like a blueberry. but then i got this idea in my head one random day of a blue on blue ensemble--the kind of thing where where you'd look like a blueberry but on purpose--and then a few weeks later i found this navy blue sweater on sale at zara and it seemed like the universe was prodding me along. i threw this one together for a warm saturday morning winter brunch outing last month with a friend, figuring if one were going to look like a blueberry, brunch is probably the safest place to do it.  

i am having a love affair with sweaters this winter. simple and a little bit oversized, paired with boots. socks must peek out.


p.s. huck

  5. Dope in the UK means Marijuana! Guessing it doesn't have the same connotations in the States...

    2. I think baby boomers here know it as marijuana, but like Julie said, we use it as cool.

      I love the outfits, but I did wonder what your parents thought of his shirt? My mother would die. hehehe

  6. love, love, love your look! head to toe, it is a great, practical yet stylish, and fitting look. but i am not a fan of the t-shirt you have on sweet huck....i guess using your child as a canvas to show how "ironic" you can be isn't a terrible thing, it's just something i would ever do.

  7. i guess i haven't put much thought into the negative connotations of "dope," but i will from now on! i suppose every slang word has a less tasteful connotation than what you might use it for. in my house "that's dope" is just another way of saying "that's cool!" i'd never heard it used as a drug term. in this case, huck is only meant to be a canvas of support for some dear friends of ours. :)

  8. Love that look! So simple and easy but still classic looking. Thumbs up.

  9. @rmforde dope used to be a term for marijuana (I have heard my dad use the term before), but the much more common meaning these days is "cool", so it's more saying what a cool little dude her son is!

  10. I love this bag!! I entered via Twitter! Also love your outfit! Wish those booties were still available on shoemint! I'd be all over them!

  11. This is my kind of outfit: jeans and a sweater, and jazz it up with polka dot socks!! And I wish Huck's suspenders were available in my size.... I also love the bag, hence I entered :)

  13. Those shoemint boots are sold out and they seem impossible to find anywhere else, but I am most certain I need to have them. Help Natalie! Use your shopping skills for a poor ol gal. :) Where else can we find them??

  14. I have that exact same Zara jumper but I found mine has bobbled really badly - has yours done the same since you washed it? I really love it and would love to know if yours has bobbled also or if not how you have avoided it?
