The time has come for colds and overcoats…

I have always been inspired by the 50s and 60s.  A classic feminine style has always been a go to, and more recently, no help of course to Mad Men (Did anyone else only watch for the fashion?) or my growing obsession LDR.  Slim pants, pencil and A-line skirts, twin sets, and big hair.  Jackie O., Audrey and Grace are my go to gals for inspiration, along with Lana’s mixture of old Hollywood glamour, meets 21 century hood-rat (in the best way!).  This time period has always been an inspiration to me and I incorporate a lot of that style into my looks year round, here are my A/W takes.

With A/W being my fave (I know I go way overboard on the topic), I thought it would be a good place to start.  This season I am heavy into the deep greens, blues, especially navy, and oxblood.  I tend to stick with the same classic silhouettes through out the year, and I have been big on making sure my pieces can carry throughout the seasons.

1. Black pussy bow blouse NY       & Co.
    Oxblood tulip skirt H & M
    Oxfords Dr. Marten’s

2. Houndstooth green 3/4          sweater J. Crew
    Wool camel trousers J. Crew
    Nude pumps Nine West

This season I kept my new additions to a minimum and I planned to shop my closet a lot.  I wanted to utilize all of the pieces for A/W that I can.  Yes, new additions can be great, but it doesn’t mean that you should let great pieces get pushed further back in the closet.  All of the pieces listed are all from previous seasons.  Like the tulip skirt I’ve had since my senior year of high school and my pussy bow blouse was purchased about five years ago when I started as a teller.  The newest items are my wool pants (purchased earlier this year) and the sweater from last A/W.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,
