My New Uniform

I must admit, I have a new uniform. I am always trying to find an easy outfit to throw on that looks put together. This is it- jeans and a starched oxford. I was inspired while flipping through the J. Crew “Style Guide”. I was doing some research on a formula for layering (I haven’t figured that out yet), and I noticed that they put oxfords with everything! I have always loved a good oxford. At one time in my life I wore one everyday and so I have lots. Well, they are seeing a new life lately. I love that I have some that are light-weight (here) and some that are a heavier weight.

I like to tuck the shirt in and semi-pop (not a full pop but a partial pop- ha!) the collar when I’m going to be out and about.

Outfit Links:
Top Shirt- J.Crew for similar, Bottom Shirt- J.Crew for similar, Jeans- Citizens of Humanity, Shoes- Converse, Purse- Marc Jacobs, Sunglasses- Ray-Ban, Watch- Michael Kors

But, when I’m at home the shirt gets untucked! A reader shared with me that she was looking for inspiration for her bedroom, and I’m always looking for convenient places to take pictures- so here’s my favorite place in the world, my bed(room)! It’s still a work in progress. My sister is an interior designer so I’m constantly asking her for advice, which she happily gives!

I don’t have an office so I decided to make a desk next to my bed. If you’re looking for a great looking but inexpensive chair, my sister posted on this one (here).

    You look adorable…and the fact that you look amazing in those jeans doesn’t hurt the whole look! I’m a big fan of the popped collar…I guess it’s my inner molly ringwald. And now I need to go bleach my converse, bc they look nothing like yours!

    I love uniforms! Yours is great – I’ve been hunting around for a pale pink oxford recently and haven’t found what I want. Either TOO stuffy/matronly or too trendy with elbow sleeves and odd tucks or collars.
    I have a winter uniform and I’m afraid my sweater is getting shabby – good thing winter is fading.

  11. Your picture in front of the bed needs to be in a magazine. Seriously.

    Greetings! Beautiful bedroom! …your bed from Garnet Hill…is it the color “Antique Rust?” That’s the only color listed on the GH website but I just wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing another color that is sold out.
