 Free People skinny vegan leather pants
Mint Designs lightweight wool coat
H&M grey sweater
Thrifted fingerprint-pattern blouse
Nanette Lepore bag (on sale in green)
ASOS platform heels
Vintage hat
Chain necklaces made by Lauren + her sister at Brooklyn Charm

Last year (really like, a month ago) Lauren and I were sitting around my apartment with our friend Yanina when Lauren announced, "I think next year I'm going to start dressing in specific themes." Yanina and I looked at each other and said, "So, you're going to start wearing costumes now?" Looking exasperated Lauren explained that in her mind everything she put on was thrown together haphazardly and moving forward she wanted to get dressed with specific "themes" in mind -- nautical, boho, you name it.

(Side note: I promise I'm not making this up, this conversation happened and we really did talk about Lauren's style for what was probably far longer than is typical or appropriate for three girls drinking Grandpa's lemonade on a Sunday)

The point is, whether she realizes it or not, her style is anything but haphazard and I love this look for exactly that. I also love those pants, which I plan on borrowing. Immediately.

  2. I always try to dress in themes or try to tell some kind of story through my clothes. I think dressing up should be fun. And this look is TOTALLY fun. Love the hat, the coat and the leather pants!
