There are few things I’d rather have on my body than a really good vintage tee. My friend Willis found this “South Carolina” one for me and I’ve basically been living in the thing! Paired it up with a vintage leather pencil skirt to achieve an overall worn-in look.

This week I have been preparing for my THIRD move in the past year. Apparently I have become some kind of metropolitan nomad. This time around, I’m ditching my Lower East Side one-bedroom for a quieter spot in Williamsburg (with a significantly larger closet). That’s right, this chick’s headed to Brooklyn! While always a fan of the fast-paced lifestyle, I’m definitely looking forward to having a home base that allows me to unwind a little more.

head to toe: sunglasses from Sosie, BB Dakota jacket, vintage tee, Wren & Glory rings, vintage skirt, Wolford tights, Jean Michel Cazabat booties

    holy crap

    I just found your blog and I am absolutely positively obsessed. I can’t even handle it. Every single thing you do is right. The shoes are always the perfect balance to the casualness of the outfit, and your sunglasses are seriously out of this world.

    Every post is better than the next, and I am ADDICTED.

    These jmc shoes are making me drool, and I just love how you paired this fancy coat with the low-key ensemble.

    It think you’re a genius.

    Any place with the offer of a bigger closet is a place that has a Fashionista Seal of Approval (yes, I now dub that as a real thing.)
