Today was so pretty! There was this nice breeze and hardly any clouds so the sun got to shine! Although, the sun didn’t dry up all of the mud where I took the first few pictures. Gross! Man, today was amazing. It totally felt like Spring! So perfect that today is my really close friend Darsi’s (Hi!) birthday!!
When I’m not feeling well (why am I always sick?) I comb through old magazines to get ideas. Today I went through the Teen Vogue from September 2009 and found a page on Dree Hemingway (an adorable model). I instantly became obsessed and decided to recreate one of her outfits my way.
As you can tell, I didn’t copy it verbatim, just the bones. If you’re a regular ChiqueChic reader, than you know I am a huge fan of the whole “model off duty” look. Dree Hemingway is definitely one of my favs for pulling that off. I’ve never really liked how jean jackets fit so I ended up going with a jean vest instead. Since today seemed like Spring, I wanted to add in some florals so I threw on the scarf, which led to the fringe boots because it all seemed kind of folky to me. I haven’t had a chance to wear my new (to me) Dooney yet, which completed the look. I really liked this outfit. It was really comfy, but not boring. Oh, and those sunglasses. I got them this summer and never really wear them. They were out of my comfort zone when I bought them, but I’m a lot gutsier now. I predict them showing up with many outfits this year.
My very first issue of Nylon arrived today! I’m so stoked! It has Hilary Duff on the cover (I love her!). Can’t wait to read it! In fact, I’m going to go read it now. Until tomorrow, xoxo emily.
