Oh My Monet

January 15, 2016

I recently encountered the enamoring Emma York from Emma York Photography and we joined forces to start a creative collaboration that I am so beyond excited about. Emma is the sweetest little thing with such a fascinating story on how she became a photographer, read about it here
This outfit is full of some of my most favorite pieces. Interestingly enough my favorite pieces are the ones that have a bit of a story.

I've had this leather jacket since my senior year of high school (2012). I got it from Nasty Gal and I specifically remembering ordering it in my grandparents basement in Queens. I'd say its been a pretty good purchase because I wear it almost everyday. My sweater came from a $1 bin from a clothing sale at my university that Liz bought me. My jeans are a pair from J-Crew my Dad bought for me last Christmas while I was on a quest for the "ultimate coated jeans." My chelsea's are my utmost favorite pair I got on sale at Target two Thanksgivings ago. I wish I'd bought another pair.

This beautiful scarf is from my sweet boyfriend's sweet Mom, Carol. She got it for me during her time in Paris and I wear it constantly. Monet's water lily paintings are some of my favorite pieces of art. Carol knows me too well, such a thoughtful gift from Foulards Cravates. I initially was hesitant about how I could incorporate this scarf into my wardrobe but it fit in seamlessly. Plus I feel like a Wes Anderson character when I wear it. Thank you Carol, love you

Emma suggested I try different ways of wearing this silk scarf so I decided on three ways.
First, around the wrist.
 
The bow
 
The bandana
Around the wrist in my opinion is the hardest to perfect and pull off, but I like the bow the best! How do you tame your scarves?

  2. Did Emma take these photos? They're gorgeous, gosh! My favourite kind of sartorial pieces are the ones with history, like your leather jacket! I've yet to get myself a leather jacket, but when I do, I know I'll remember it for year to come.

    I don't wear scarves often, but I love them tied in the 60s bow round my neck!

  10. I really like your jacket. I love those pieces that you can get so much wear out of and you can never go wrong with a biker jacket.

    1. Thanks Mel! My thoughts exactly. I would never wear this outfit with just a button up you know? The scarf adds the perfect little addition!
