London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week

London Fashion week has just wrapped up and now the fashion Jet Set are in Milan, next up Paris.  I wasn't able to attend this year, big surprise I know, but if I had the chance I would have rocked some designer pieces like the outfit pictured above.  But, let's be real, this is all just a fantasy. Maybe, one day I could sneak into an NYC show, but London and the rest probably aren't in my future. A girl can always dream.  And in my dream I would be sporting this gorgeous Burberry coat over some Stella McCartney bejeweled shorts and sweater, with killer Vivenne Westwood heels!  Everything in this look, except for the jewelry are from British brands with which is only appro when you're running around Piccadilly Square, am I right?  Fantasy aside, this is a type of outfit I would totally wear IRL.  Flirty cocktail shorts with graphic tights, heeled booties, and a printed button-up under a bright sweater is a fun and quirky outfitting option for an early spring night on the town. Maybe I'll have to try it for my next date night with Mr. Keller.

Leather & Textured Knit

Love how the bracelet sort of mimics the sweater's texture here. 

Yep those are legwarmers over my tights, sneaking in another layer against the cold.

More cool blues, but this time mixed with black instead of beige as in Monday's post here. The collared shirt under textured knit is always a win for my office during the winter. This skirt is conservative in silhouette, but edgy with it's leather-like fabric, paired with the boots it's bringing a bit of fierce into mid-week work wear. Ideally, I would have taken off the coat for these shots, but it's fairly innocuous in these pictures, and it was COLD outside. I've braved the elements for photos before, but I just couldn't bring myself to go for it this time.

Peaky Blinders Realness

Mr. Keller and I spent most of Sunday curled up on the couch binge watching the Netflix original series Peaky Blinders and my outfit yesterday felt the effects.

The show is set in post-WW1 Birmingham, England and this duster coat is giving me all kinds of 1919 industrial-chic realness. Proof::

These trousers with their cropped silhouette and tweed-like feel add to the street urchin effect, while also giving an athleisure nod with the side-stripe. Having a mostly androgynous overall look I went with statement/heavy jewelry with this necklace and these rings, which is a shout out to the show's main female character Aunt Polly.  She rocks cocktail rings like she invented them!  I couldn't find a great pic so just trust. Also, season 2 features several songs from one of my all-time Riot Grrrl faves PJ Harvey!!! So what shows are influencing your style at the moment? Let me know if the comments below!

Blazer, T-Shirt, Cords, Oh My!

This is a fairly ho-hum look. It's a spin-off from the standard t-shirt and jeans, but with a blazer, cords, and some glam jewelry to step things up a bit. I'm loving the color combo here with these cool blues of the tee, bracelet, and in the tweedy mix of the blazer. And I know we've been seeing these boots a ton, but hey look at the snow on the ground people, it's duck-boot season! So yeah, nothing revolutionary happening here, just a solid semi-casual, seasonally appropriate outfit for you on a Monday.
