A few months ago I went to dinner with some friends and I was wearing pretty much this exact outfit (just a different cropped red sweatshirt, naturally). One friend sarcastically goes, “oh you couldn’t dress up for us?” I thought it was hilarious, as I’ve only been wearing sweatshirts (and sweatpants) this winter. But anything can be elevated with the right shoes (both literally and figuratively — re: heels).
Either you love or you hate the question, how would you describe your personal style? For me, it’s always been a difficult one to answer (although I did so in length in The Art of Getting Dressed and Funky Fresh) because I don’t necessarily identify with the typical categories (minimalist, preppy, edgy, feminine, bohemian, etc.) So I thought I’d come up with yet another question that I think is better suited — what is your ultimate goal when getting dressed?
Of course I decide to post these photos on a day it’s snowing BUT you have to admit we’ve been having a very mild winter here in Chicago, and for that I thank mother nature…because WE DESERVE IT. Although it might be a little aggressive to rock no coat at all this time of year…a fuzzy blazer will just have to do the trick.
