It’s November. And it’s starting to feel like it. Layers save the day, per usual. I had a few meetings in Bentonville and borrowed Elysian‘s alley to capture my ootd. Later, I walked into a gas station and a lovely gentleman with a tear tattoo on his face asked me if I was from LA because I looked “trendy”.

I love to see a good looking couple. I always tell the other half of my couple that we need to look like we are going to the same place. That doesn’t mean we must coordinate or even compliment. It’s just a succinct way to remember if we’re going to a cocktail party, I shouldn’t look like I’m headed to the opera and he shouldn’t look like he’s going to a baseball game. We’re going to the same place, no matter where that is. Here are some good examples from my pinterest board of the same name.

Girls notice. Promise you. Case in point: Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love. Yes he looked amazing, but more than that, I wanted his entire wardrobe for Ro. And he was on board! Attention to detail is something I think some guys have a hard time with. They don’t automatically think things like “should this jacket have a pocket square?” or “should I layer a sweater over this thermal?”. But oh what a difference it makes.
Boys, next time you dress to impress, ask yourself this question: What would Ryan wear?

One of the undeniable staples of a woman’s wardrobe is the white oxford. It’s a classic must-have and can be worn in an infinite amount of ways. I realized yesterday that I have 6…oops I don’t feel guilty.
What can you say? I know she’s not fat because her thighs aren’t touching but this has to be the most ill-fitting dress ever assembled. This goes to show you that celebrity does not guarantee you taste. This is seriously horrifying.
