It’s been more than a year since I intentionally changed my style direction, but there are still plenty of days when I look in the mirror and feel like I’m not quite crafting the looks I really want to be wearing. Which is partially because my tastes often veer away from more mainstream badassery and off toward Post-apocalyptic Art Gallery Owner territory, partially because I’m a curvy girl with big hips who doesn’t look like Lou Dillon in a moto or slouchy jeans, and partially because it just takes a while to change your look. But this outfit felt like a success – this is how I want to look. Casual, slightly rumpled, but comfy, happy, a little bit edgy, and 100% me. read more

I talk about the weather a lot in my outfit posts. This is because 85% of the time my outfits are assembled based on the temperature and precipitation. We Minnesotans are ruled by our temperamental climate, and although we had one unexpected 90+ degree day last week, it’s been a relatively cool spring. So I’m still happily layering, and wearing this eBayed jacket often. I love the shape and lack of giant moto lapels, but man, is it ever a cat hair-magnet. read more

I thrifted this jacket in Chicago around the holidays, and love it to bits. Most sweater jackets are either thick, structured cardigans or knit blazers. But this guy is a field jacket made from a non-felted sweater-knit. It’s more of a hybrid than a sweater jacket. More of a swacket, if you will. I wore it to LOTT Workshop 1 and felt cozily confident. read more
