• shoes/boots

    Autumn is here, and with it, earthy tones and free-flowing fabrics. Hannah’s tall, light brown boots are perfectly complemented by her above the knee dress/shirt, and her carefree look is made complete by her floral fabric headpiece.

    WHY THIS WORKS: proportions.  Her short sleeves and small shorts balance each other out.  Her white shirt/denim shorts are neutral, which highlight the brightly colored/patterned/tasseled scarf. Moral of this [scarf] story: only wear tassels when they are balanced with neutrals. And small.

    Kim has the most delicate sensibilities when it comes to fabric and style.  Even on this dreary day, she had donned a thin, simple white tank with a loose, but still light denim button down. All neutrals (even the shoes are a very muted red, which turns neutral), and then […]

  • textures/tulle

    Kate once again shows us her bold style with this tutu that she pairs so well with a plain black tee.  This beautiful balance of textures (cotton tee & sparkling tulle) is so refreshing, and the perfect way to wear a unique and dramatic texture like tulle.

  • men’s style/watches

    Trousers are the mark of a gentleman. In the same way, watches can make a men’s ensemble- look at how Wes sports both here.  As I photographed him, I happened to notice the watch he was wearing, and asked him about it.  He said that it was actually his mother’s […]

    Harley always wears such beautifully proportioned colors, but when I saw this denim piece I knew I had to photograph her.  She then began to tell me about how she had just cut her bangs, and I think they are the finishing touch on this wonderful little fall ensemble. WHY […]

  • textures/sequins

    Look who called each other up that morning while they were dressing! Not really-Emma’s headband is sequined pink, and Sydney’s shirt is sequined silver.  They also happen to be wearing almost the same colors.  So maybe they really did coordinate… WHY THIS WORKS: Sequins don’t always work, but here they […]

    Rachel shows us how to wear a thin scarf as a headband…and carry coffee, dinner, and books all at once!  I think she thought I was ridiculous as I snapped photo after photo of her, trying get a good angle of the scarf. (Note the face in the bottom left […]

  • how to/dress up a white tee

    Put on a pair of uniquely patterned shorts. Choose an accessory to make a color “pop,” like Anna’s mustard yellow belt. Wear a nicer sandal (here she has a slight wedge, gradient width to the quality leather straps, and a simple medallion). Curl hair. (sorry, guys….) Add a handmade piece- […]

  • how to/dress up jeans

    I ran into my friend Ross the other day and was pleased to see how well-dressed he was, especially since he typically sports a tee and flip flops when he goes out.  Instead, he chose to dress it up with a plain white v-neck tee, complemented with a navy v-neck […]

    Remember the days of sock hops, ponytails, and black/white oxfords? Well, Emma took us there for a moment when she wore this tiny sheer scarf and tied it in one simple knot. P.S. She made her earrings out of individual tea packages and doilies.  How absolutely lovely!

    I was so happy this morning seeing Kate walk down the road in her exuberantly vivid red dress.  As an ardent lover of this blog, she declared to me recently that she would make it on here. I always love Kate’s bold wardrobe pairings, and in this little red button […]

    Kate looks cozy with her scarf tightly wrapped up like this, especially since mornings have been a little chilly lately. (It’s only the beginning of September!) She did this by wrapping it twice around her neck then tying a simple knot in the front.  This can be done with thick […]

    Kali approached me in the parking lot today, eager to share this bit of information she just learned about her delicate pink blouse.  This top she is wearing is silk! Although a more opaque sheer than we would normally associate silk with, it is due to the different weave of […]

    Take a look at Katherine’s mary jane wedge heels…they are so classic paired with her dark grey chinos and leather bag.  I couldn’t help but snap a photo of this well-put-together ensemble while we were out chatting over froyo. Shoes: Urban Outfitters, Pants: J. Crew
