Classic and Casual Chic

(Image Above: stylesightings)

I love how understated this outfit is. Nothing about it is flashy and yet this girl still stands out. Everything in her outfit looks like pieces I could pull out of my mom’s closet (she never gets rid of anything), and that’s a compliment. I love the brown quilted leather purse and classic oxfords. Plus, lately I’ve been getting really excited about contrasting prints. I think the plaid trousers and paisley scarf work amazingly together. This photo also revives my desire to have worse vision. I might have to bite the bullet and wear non-prescription glasses. No one will know – except all of you…

Here are a couple pieces that will jump start your copycat look: the Cynical Teen Glasses and the Minsk Scarf.

About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.
