I’m A Lovely Lady!

February 20, 2013


Emma Dime had me over on her blog as a Lovely Lady. Check it out here. This photo was an outtake from the shoot – we have this cat in our neighborhood that we call Orange Cat but it turns out his name is actually Blue. We like to watch him from our breakfast nook – some days he’s chilling on the driveway in the sun, other days he’s being attacked by blue jays or chased up trees by big scary dogs.

Orange cat and lovely lady-ing aside, I also thought I’d share a little more here on having a limited wardrobe. Here are a few keys and tips for rocking a minimalist closet:
• Signature / Statement Pieces – for me right now it’s my Blockshop scarf. It’s always on my neck whether I’m wearing a puffy down vest or a tailored leather jacket
• Great Accessories – like my vintage Ray-Bans
• The Little Details – freshly polished nails or a pop of lipstick can go a long way in making you feel put together
• Quality Staples – having fewer clothes makes me want to spend more on investment pieces like a solid pair of jeans or a jacket that goes with anything
• The Hair – I think hair is one of the first things people notice about personal style – so from having a shaved head to a nest of dreads and anything in between, if you feel good about your hair you’re going to feel good about everything else
• You Are Not Your Clothes – I love fashion and I think it’s a great way to express yourself and connect with others but know that you are not your clothes.

Anything you would add here?
