Dans le Monde Entier

Club Monaco scarf and bracelet, Sam Edelman booties,
Badgley Mischka bag, belt from Mexico, dress c/o StylePiques,
blazer c/o Shoppalu, Birks bangle

I don’t know if it’s just the tweed, but this outfit screams “English countryside” to me. It kind of reminded me after the fact of how I used to dress when I was younger: instead of taking pieces and simply combining them into an outfit, I used to take very specific and at times obscure reference points (Lou Reed was a recurring one through first year) and use them to cultivate a look. Maybe I’ll try it out a bit more in the future – any requests?

I’m currently at my cabin right now and it’s been just what I needed. I love sitting here next to the fire and having absolutely nothing to do other than sip coffee and watch the ocean. Doctors should just prescribe cabin days from now on when people are feeling run down. Sometimes, even staying home with a cold isn’t enough…you really need to just fully remove yourself from everything and plant yourself in the middle of nowhere.
Hoping your weeks are off to a good start!

    You look very elegant. Tweed is very english countryside but your scarf is pure Parisian.

    Hope you're having a good start to monday.

    I love your "English Countryside" outfit ; ) That dress looks perfect on you! You have a cabin? At the ocean? Lucky girl! Enjoy your time there. I always get such a good rest when I'm at my family's cabin.

    I need more tweed in my life. And by "need more" I really mean "get some" considering that I have none. Lame balls.
    P.S. Obsessed with your shoesies.

    I love this outfit, such wonderful neutrals together. Tweed always reminds me of english country too, or a sharply dressed professor (I had one who wore tweed jackets all the time and he was awesome). The blazer looks so great with the dress!
    I would love to be out at a cabin right now, it's so relaxing to get away just for a bit even. Have fun!!

    That jacket is very English countryside – all you need is a horse, and you'd be right there! Oh Shoppalu… So many gems. This post is reminding me that I haven't looked through their sectional for a while 🙂 Hope you're enjoying your time at the cabin, although we definitely missed seeing you yesterday. We must catch up soon. Perhaps a visit to Cafe Medina (for waffles, naturally) is in order?

    Love the tweed and this outfit. I must say that each time you wear these wedges I feel a huge bit of jealousy over them. What can I say i'm a sucker for wedges.

    Hi sweety, Wishing you and your loved one Happy (Anti) Valentines Day! I love collecting tailored blazers like this one, its is so chic and dressy. Gorgeous look, love the scarf and tan accessories. My fav look of yours for this month so far.

  27. 2.14.12

    Such a wonderful look !
    It's make class and a little bit "british" ! I love your dress !

  28. 2.14.12

    I'm having a great week so far, as I hope you are. Your cabin sounds like the perfect escape (I need one of those too!!).
    Loving the tweed on you. It reminds me of Ralph Lauren's tweed blazers, which are so fabulous! I like the black and white, as oposed to the usual earthy tones. It's more striking.
    For the Love of Audrey

    That outfit is definitely countryside attire, and it looks very comfortable. I would have say I think more Doctors should just prescribe time away in general. At a cabin or lake or whatever. Just tell you to unplug and get out of town.

  41. 2.14.12

    I love the jacket. I've never been able to pull of tweed. I'm not exactly sure why. However, it looks wonderful on you paired with the neutrals. A few days at a cabin sounds exactly like what I need too!

    well, i'd dearly love to see what you came up with in reference to Lou Reed….dude, all that man wears is black on black and shades are a consistent theme. how'd you do it? super curious! i LOVE the tweed styles though, really chic and i also totally am grooving on your (slightly) longer side swept bangs. way to work it lades!!! still living off the fumes from your cabin post. good gosh, everyone should have such a tremendous getaway. i think the world would be such a chill place if that were the case! xo ♥
