austin.





A little late, but here are a few photos from when me and B went to Austin for my birthday. I did some shopping and ate way too much food. It was awesome.

the black coat.




 I think this Rick Owens coat is hands down the coolest coat I've ever owned. It came about as a result of my mission to have a more cultivated wardrobe. When I was younger, I was really into acquiring lots of different clothes and trying out all kinds of things. The older I get, however, I find I would rather have a smaller collection of quality pieces that I really love, and not tons of things I just like. One staple piece that was a no brainer to me: a black coat. I decided on this one because it was both parts classic and just very slightly edgy.

hello, 2014.




I really love big, cozy, oversized sweaters. When we were leaving the house the other day, my boyfriend looked at me and said, "you look homeless." In my mind, I interpreted this to mean that I had finally acheived my life long goal of looking like an Olsen twin, so naturally gave him an emphatic thank you. 

In other news, I've made a 2014 goal to actually update this blog. Other goals include: learn French, get a passport, finally travel overseas, and just take more time to enjoy things.
I'm excited.

rainy wednesday.






Wearing different textures is one of my favorite ways to keep monochromatic outfits interesting, especially when the silhouettes are so simple. I also like how the oversize top balances out the skinny proportion of the leggings and the shoe.

sxsw.







I love going to Austin! Not only does that mean I get to see my baby sister (pictured in photo 4), but they have the best food. I'm serious. It's like a vegan paradise down there. These photos were actually taken at Casa de Luz when my boyfriend and I were in town for the end of SXSW.

Also, I know what you're thinking, and, yes, I'm wearing the jacket again. I feel like I need to throw in a "sorry I'm not sorry" somewhere. I don't remember where I read it, but I read once about the difference between dressing in France and in America that talked about how in America,  we put such an importance on not wearing the same things twice, but in France, it's more like "that outfit looked great on Tuesday, I think I'll wear it again today." I knew I was born in the country. Besides, in my defense, this jacket goes with everything.

rick owens.
















I've been really into Rick Owens lately; but honestly, I don't know how I wasn't more obsessed with him ages ago. I love how he is able to achieve such an amazing range with tones, and I actually love how much even the shades with the same names vary. Try googling his shade called "dust", and see all of the different options you get. I also have a beautiful gray skirt of his with the color name "sea'". It reminds me of a gray day on the ocean. 

As for this jacket, it has to be hands down my favorite thing that I own. It was hit or miss ordering it since Dallas is dismally lacking in retailers that carry his clothes (especially since our Barney's just closed), but on the third try I finally ended up with this gorgeous blistered leather version. If I can manage not to wear it every day, it will be a serious achievement.
