Back to basics.

Amidst all of the over styled, over accessorized, over detailed looks being photographed on the street, I sometimes lose my way from my instinctual style. I buy dumb stuff that I only wear once (if at all), stress over purchases I don't need and then finally I end up back in my jeans and tee-shirts. This recent editorial from La Garçonne was like a beacon of light reflecting what I truly love to wear.  With the amount of money I've wasted on silly stuff I could have probably bought up this entire editorial...well...maybe half. The truth is though, I probably own most of this stuff already in some form or another, the new silly stuff just keeps getting in the way.


Oh, how I looove this shot. What the photograph captures in terms of the love between this girl and her pup is what drew me to it first. Second.....that poppy red bandana tucked into her messy do'. I saw a woman walking Queen West the other day with messy short hair and a bright yellow bandana similarly styled and it has totally inspired me to keep my eyes out for one.
