Go-to favorites





When? December 6, 2012

What for? This is an outfit that I’ve worn slight variations of for years, but I think it’s the first time featured on this blog. I got this tie obi belt at a Chicago art fair years ago — and since made a couple more of my own, as seen here — and really like to pair it with this seamed and structured denim jacket. And these wide-leg trousers are some of the most comfortable items of clothing I own. This is one of those go-to outfits I don’t have to think too much about — perfect for a morning that included 5 alarm-clock snoozes. ;)

And the hairstyle took less than three minutes! I scraped my hair back in a high ponytail, back-combed it for body (and grip), and then swooped it around the base to pin a loose bun. When I described it to the hubby, his deadpan reaction was: “You got that idea from another style blog, didn’t you?” Yep.
