Plaid + Bomber
Wearing: Zara bomber jacket / J. Crew plaid shirt / Loft bootcut jeans / Dolce Vita boots / Sundance leather & silver necklace.
Spring outfit, fall outfit. This one could go either way and I’ll probably resurrect it in about 120 days.
The plaid shirt is brushed cotton and so soft. That’s one thing that I’m becoming more picky about, fabrics and how they feel on my skin. It’s like when my kiddo was three years old and would only wear certain socks that didn’t have an “ouchy” seam across the top. I think we had two pairs that were “okay” and this went on for about 6 months. Well, I’m getting to be a little toddler-ish too. Funny how that happens.
What are you particular about?
Be picky about who you keep around you. Personalities, words and traits do naturally rub off. — unknown

Timberland Partners with Pharrell Williams on Eco-Friendly Boot
This is timely news for me. We just saw Pharrell perform with N.E.R.D on Sunday night and he is one cool dude. They opened for the Gorillaz (who put on a sick show) and he got the house jumpin’. Pharrell knows how to work a crowd and how to lay down a thumping track. It also looks like he knows how to design a boot with lots of swagger. He teamed up with longtime, boot mainstay, Timberland to make a line of eco-friendly boots out of organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles, materials from a company called Bionic Yarn, which he co-owns. The line of shoes and boots drops in January 2011, so be sure to check them out. Oh, and he said N.E.R.D.s new album hits November 2, so he’s been a busy little bee, hasn’t he?!
Hey, this is cool, I just found a video from one of the songs he debuted from the new album on Sunday night. Here’s “I Wanna Jam” from the new album Nothing.
Alright, moving on to the upcoming festivities of Halloween. In the spirit of this weekend of ghouls and ghosts, I found two tasty-looking cocktails. They are easy to make and just the thing to serve to bewitch a houseful of friends.
Kiss of Death
- Prosecco or champagne
- Maraschino cherry
Fill a champagne flute with cold bubbly. Garnish with a cherry.
Have fun this weekend, but please don’t let anyone drink and drive. Kids will be out on the streets and you know how crazy and unpredictable they can be when they’re all hopped up on sugar! Be safe and well.
Chunky scarf + trench + desert boot (photo: 21eme arrondissement)
Sean from Seattle could not be more stylish in this outfit. He’s working the chunky knit scarf, relaxed trench and worn-in Clark desert boots (plus a rolled-cuff in his jeans). He looks hip without looking forced and this is a spot-on outfit for guys this fall. Change it up to suit your personality, but all the elements are there.
Here are some options for you or your man:
Love this look, guys and so many of the pieces are classic. You’ll be able to wear the boots and trench for years to come.

Inspiration from the streets of Stockholm, by the amazing blogger and photographer, Vanessa Jackman. The woman above looks fantastic in her double denim, broken up with a chunky, knit vest (also called a gilet), fringe boots and worn-in bag. Looks comfortable and stylish and she’s my street muse for the day.
Here’s a few options to get the look for yourself. I’m not sure why the text on my widget only says the tops are by Gap, because there is one from Velvet and G Star too. Hmmmm. You can see that coding is not my forte! Anyhow, click any item of clothing for more info:
Have a great day!
