Shirt: H&M c/o ThreadUp
Bag: Vintage Coach
Hello all of you lovelies!
Do you ever put an outfit together and realize who your style icon influence was when you look in the mirror? As soon as I saw this finished look complete with hair, makeup, shoes, and neck scarf I knew that Daphne of Mode and The City and Jenny of Margo & Me where two huge influences on my style for this post! Both have incredible classic and elegant city styles that I can't help but swoon over all the time. Daphnie has a fabulous city wardrobe complete with adorable block heels and classic neck scarves (she also lives in Paris) and Jenny is an elegant fashionista whose hairstyle I copy ALL the time:)
With this ensemble I can't help but thinking I should be traveling in Europe, sightseeing and soaking up all of the unique culture and scenery (which I hope to do after I am done with College). There is something so European and "Big City" about a neck scarf, which always seems to lean towards uptown elegance and class. Pair a classic neck scarf with stripes and you are ready to hop on an airplane and travel around the world!
I can't help loving this ensemble every time I see these pictures because it encompasses so many classic pieces that I love and that are "in style" right now. Stripes for one are my go to 24/7 and I seriously have to many of them (but can one really have to many stripes?). Also, neck scarves are one of the fall trends right now and I can't help being drawn to their classic elegance and vintage charm as worn by Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday! I recently discovered a 3 story vintage shop downtown by campus and stumbled upon a treasure trove of vintage goodies, including this lovely scarf:) And of course you can't forget a button front skirt and lace up sued flats to complete the look along with winged liner and a retro red lip.
Truth be told, I feel as though my style has been evolving and changing since getting bangs?!?! I don't know what it is, but changing up ones hairstyle opens up the possibilities of different eras and styles to choose from and I have loved experimenting with looks I haven't before:)
What are your go to "city" looks?
Are you a fan of neck scarves?
