wrinkled linen

11-15-10
A.P.C. linen dress via Azalea in SF, H&M cardigan, vintage oxfords, fjallraven backpack

The next time someone asks me to summarize my style in one word I'm going to be crass and say it: I'M JUST LAZY. Sometimes I like to care a little but for the most part this is what drives the way I dress now. The busier I am, the less I fuss over my appearance. I admitted that for a while that I thought I was letting myself go, which is somewhat true, I suppose, but after a while I realized that I may just finally be getting comfortable with the way I want to look which isn't really anything special. So what if I wear the same things over and over again? Isn't that what you're supposed to do when you buy clothing you claim to love? As a friend of mine stated so eloquently:

my whole thing is just
stop being "things"
and just get dressed
c*****

Maybe I'm just a lil' cranky about everything that's been going on with Four Loko. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS! Everything is good in moderation, guys.

I feel the same way. If I love something I want to wear the hell out of it. I like the way you dress though. You are true to your style! x

ahhh this look reminds me of summer

ana said...

jealous you can wear bare legs this time of year!

typepeace said...

Laurita P said...

feel the same, it's all good. this could be in part because I can't afford to buy lots and lots of gorgeous new clothing on my ten-hour work week. or because I give myself about five minutes to decide what to wear, either or.
also, I'm not a regular commenter, but hell, I love what you wear. a lot.

I think you don't have to wear special stuff, or clothes or accessorizes to look good: you just have to be ok in your mind and to be who you are, and then, you will look great! It's as simple as that!
The proof: you are wearing a 'simple' dress and a simple cardigan, and you look good!

C. said...

Agreed! When you spend good money on clothes, it's better to wear them to their full potential.

If you feel good, you usually look good too.

Kennyy said...

I like to wear whatever is comfortable. I don't spend much time or thought in what I'm gonna wear. I like your outfit. Especially, the color of the cardigan. Oh and I have a couple of friends freaking out about four loco too.

magnolia*mama said...

all of a sudden I'm supposed to believe combining liquor and alcohol is a bad thing? pssshhhhhhht.

love all the neutrals you wear, very inspiring! I can hardly find an item in my closet that doesn't have a wacky pattern or bright color and sometimes I feel like a 6 year old :)

and wear what you like. I know what I like doesn;t change every day and I don't think I am in the minority... of course you're gonna wear the same thing over and over!

Sophie said...

well, you don't LOOK lazy. haha i think i dress that way quite often too. i admire looks that are super creative but i tend to be pretty simple.

paperwhales said...

I lovee to wear my favorite things over and over. There's a reason why I bought it and that's because I love it. I don't think there's a need to wear or show outfits only once. It's just being realistic and practical. It only makes sense that you give your favorite garments some love!

Shilpi said...

but you're so chic!

julie @ rosy + tart said...

I think LAZY is the best style ever. It never goes out of style. I'm lazy too... but at least you make it look good! ;)

Behind the Lashes said...

I'm with ya on this one. Oh and as for the linen, my pieces are always wrinkled too and I think I like them better that way ha.
xoxo Heather

JULIA said...

I wish I could pull off being fashionably lazy as well as you can. That cardigan is so cute, and I love your use of neutrals.

♥ Julia

Mely said...

lazy? i think of your outfit as with more of an 'effortlessly cool'vibe...love it!

Marinka said...

I really like your outfit ^^ I love the cardi and the shoes a lot!!

ittybittybomb said...

So lovely! You're style is badass. Love those oxfords xo

bamba said...

There is really nothing wrong with wearing the same outfit, you should be allowed to take pleasure in wearing your favorite things! If that's being lazy I am happy to be lazy! But I still envy those people who look so effortlessly put together, like you by the way. :)

Jessica said...

i am a typical person like you who ignores the way i dress when i am in a busy day.
what i always do is just throwing up whatever i want to wear at the moment.
so i know what it feels like.
but i love your cardigan and dress so much and aove all i love your brogues!

Fahmida said...

The reason I've been a fan of your style for so many years is that, even though it has changed a little over time, you've remained consistent in the way you wear things. (Y)

Four Loko didn't make it to Canada >.>

ana b. said...

Having to maintain a fashion blog doesn't help with the quest and justification for simple outfits either! After a couple of years into it, I just can't be bothered putting all that effort into thinking about what to wear. Your simple outfit is more honest than a lot of other bloggers.

Alison said...

I definitely stand by re-using clothes in outfits over and over again. Simple outfits shouldn't be overlooked! It's refreshing to see this on your blog, and one of the reasons I enjoy following it!

FS said...

I love your point of view. Most fashion mags/blogs pretend to be about style, but are obviously really about consumerism. You don't have that ulterior motive of pushing things on potential buyers, which is refreshing.

mimi said...

i love what you wear. i find it relatable (im also a uni student with a massively busy schedule but i dont have a major budget to lavish myself with designer goodies like most other bloggers) but also aspirational, because unlike me, your lazy style is just adorable! you still manage to look comfortable and original. keep doing what you're doing girl, it works :)

im not a regular commenter either but i regular follower! hope you're feeling more cheered up!

Hannah said...

Yep - and I don't think I'll ever get sick of those sunglasses, seriously.

Vicky said...

Cute shoes and glasses. They really make the look x

berrieslovebeauty said...

I have the same cardi in blue, I'm in love with it! You look gorgeous!

Sascha said...

cute look!

ParisiannSkies said...

i think that is a good way to look at things,
i'm going to take on this mentality.
stop trying to find a look and just accept that it is what it is. that's cool!

i love this dress.

EXACTLY to everything you just mentioned: lazy dressing, "letting go", four loko, moderation, and not having nice things.

Katie said...

i agree with the comments above that say you dress 'effortlessly cool' - it shows real sincerity in your style, that you're confident enough to 'be lazy' when need be! I think it's a great look :o)

Gasssssp noo not in SF, right?

Emilie said...

Ha I think this looks super put-together for what you call lazy. I wish this is what I looked liked that when I am stressed/busy. I love that dress and the cardigan and oxfords (and awesome sunglasses?) pair really well with it.

Full Cup said...

That is awesome! I never could pull this off, I wish I was more brave! It looks fabulous on you!:)

I just died over your comment about Four Loco. They just did an Intervention episode in my city and the girl who they did the intervention on was drinking it constantly; she was drunk off it during the intervention and blurted out in front of her parents "I NEED SEX." Anyway, I love the watermelon flavor.

And I love your cardigan.

I think that what you typed was very reasonable.

But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
I ain't suggesting your content is not solid, however suppose you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "wrinkled linen" is kinda boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they write post titles to
grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited
about everything've written. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
