01.04 Autumn White



Just try telling me that sweater isn't the perfect color! Madewell calls it 'retro navy' and it was just begging to be paired with white and cognac. I feel like the overall look is a nice balance between preppy and a sort of 90s-easy-sweaters-normcore look, a la Felicity. Which is basically what I aspire to look like everyday in the fall because it's comfortable and warm with just enough thought to it to fool people into thinking you care about what you look like. Not that that is hard to do when you're living right on the precipice of what nhpr likes to call 'North Country'. Please put me out to pasture if I ever start wearing NorthFace...

  1. I love this outfit! Looks so put together and the colours are exactly right. Sort of nautical gone "autumn-y" with the addition of warm cognac tones. I certainly envy you that madewell sweater.
    Anyway, I wanted to ask about the Nordstrom tote, I'm thinking of getting one, but I'm not sure - do you wear yours a lot? Is it well made - what I mean is, is it the kind of tote that you can tell will it fall apart after two seasons :-)

    1. Hi Kat! I've basically been using this bag exclusively since I got it (though fair warning, I generally am a one bag kind of gal). I've definitely had a couple friends think it was real leather and I looove that it's reversible, which is perfect for someone who doesn't like switching up her bags! The craftsmanship is good for the price and you should be able to get more than a couple seasons out of it depending on how hard you are on your bags. Will it last forever? I'm assuming no... but I do fully plan on being able to use it at least until this time next year (again, hate bag shopping!)

      Overall, I really love it! Especially since I've never really had an unstructured tote before and I didn't want to drop major cash on it! :)

    2. Thanks for the reply, Melina! You're really convincing me there, I do love it (I almost got a similar reversible tote about a year ago) and I'd like to think I'm a nice person to my bags :-) My only concern is that really, what I need is a black bag, not another brown one (I have 2!) and with this tote I prefer the shape of the cognac side! Well, I'm gonna have to sleep on it, I'm ordering from Nordstrom internationally and have to consider shipping + import duty, ugh. And I already have two pairs of the prettiest shoes in my basket that I absolutely must get :) Times like these I wish I lived in the US!
