August is a tough month. People are either away, enjoying their last bits of summer or they’re like me, cursing the continuing humidity and anxiously waiting for that first crimson leaf to emerge. Fall will forever be my favorite season mainly because I’m happiest when I can comfortably layer my clothing and can walk around without breaking a sweat.

There are few things more beautiful than autumn in New York; the streets become quieter, the trees transform into rainbows of oranges, reds, and yellows, people are pleasantly wrapped in light jackets or chunky knits, and there’s an unmatchable crispness in the air. I’ve already begun thinking of different outfits to wear once that first fall day really hits, and these are just a few items I wouldn’t mind adding to my roster.

  1. Topshop Silky Stripe Tee - $66
  2. Pamela Love Moon Sterling Silver Ring - $425
  3. Grace Choi Fur Collar - $21
  4. Stella McCartney Burgundy Trousers - $330
  5. Asos Wide Brim Fedora - $43.10
  6. Mother Denim Drama Jean - $148
  7. Victoria Horning ‘The Cluny’ Bag - $895
  8. Marc by Marc Jacobs Michaela Silk Dress - $498
  9. Forever21 Faceted Rhinestone Necklace - $12.80
  10. Rag & Bone Newbury Suede Bootie - $495
  11. Essie Nailpolish in Chinchilly & Wicked - both $8
  12. Style By Marina Shirt Dress - $78
  13. Mali Sabatasso Green Turquoise Ring - $275
  14. Alice by Temperley Fur Gilet - $410
  15. Vanessa Bruno Color Block Jumper - $324
  16. Modcloth Belt - $18

 

Defining Moments

Someone recently asked me to describe my personal style and I think I looked at them with a blank expression for about half a minute before mumbling out some long description that made me sound like a pretentious poop. Truth be told I don’t think I really have a style that can be categorized, I’m really a day-t0-day type of person. However, I’ve been putting a lot more thought into it and I’d like to think that my style is a melting pot of all the places that I love in the world - a little California girl, a little Parisian bourgeois, a little edgy New Yorker…no? Or perhaps a mix of the eras that I love - 1920s flapper meets 1940s sophistication meets 1960s hippie meets 1980s punk? Golly gosh I just don’t know. See how jumbled I am about this!?

In an effort to “define my style” I’ve pulled together some images that inspire my outfits on a day-to-day basis.

How would you define your style?

I have been following Pia Arrobio’s blog “Fighting the War Against Blowing it” for a few months now and have become completely obsessed with the way she produces dreamy, nostalgic photographs and honest and raw writing. Pia grew up in Los Angeles and has been moving back and forth between NYC and LA for the past six years. However, after a recent freelancing gig during New York Fashion Week ended up turning into a full time job, Pia has since made NYC her full time home. With no apartment or furniture, Pia moved into the People’s Revolution building where she has been living for the past four months.

Pia currently works at Peoples Revolution and although she has a deep passion for photography and producing, she vows never to make it a full time profession. “It would create pressure for me around something - and maybe the only thing - in my life that is simple and thoughtless”. Indeed, her photos have a beautiful quality of peacefulness and lightness that can only come from someone who approaches her work with a free spirit and carefree attitude.

In her latest blog post, Pia featured a series of photographs that she produced for Oyster Magazine and before I knew it I’d saved every single photo on my computer. The editorial was shot at Pia’s best friend Chase Cohl’s (see my style icon post on her here!) cabin in Laurel Canyon, California with photographer Cameron Smith. Using the road trips that she and Chase took to the desert and up and down the California coast as her inspiration, Pia describes the shoot as a “casual day of dress up”. She and stylist Cat Wennekamp styled the model, Anna Speckhart, in a combination of clothes that Cat brought and that Chase had lying around the house, essentially dressing her up the same way the team dresses on a day to day basis…hippie chic. Aside from the clothing however, I have to say that what I love most about this editorial is that it seems to just be a glimpse into a fun day Pia spent hanging out at her best friends house. As much as I love editorials that are so outrageously far out they barely make any sense, there’s something to be said for the more quiet, intimate ones that have my mind replaying memories of growing up in California.

Below is combination of photos from the editorial spread and pics Pia took during the day of the shoot.

Style Icon: Georgia May Jagger

I have been a fan of Georgia Jagger’s style for quite some time, but since her recent participation in the 2011 Chanel Resort Show, I have fallen in love with it even more.

With lips almost always painted a brilliant crimson red, Georgia’s style is as equally sensual as it is fashion forward. She understands how to mix red carpet glamor with 1960s/70s bohemian chic, which in the end creates an effortless, elegant, and youthful look. At only 19 years old, Georgia’s managed to step out of her father Mick Jagger and mother Jerry Hall’s spotlight, and made a name for herself as model, muse, and fashion icon.

I love her subtle make-up and how she uses color and patterns in almost every single one of her outfits. I definitely wouldn’t mind raiding her closet to say the least.

It’s difficult to put a label on her style because it seems to be changing constantly. From stunning designer dresses like a Vivienne Westwood she borrowed from her sister Lizzie to a giant scarf she turned into a dress to a ripped up tunic over leggings, Georgia falls into practically every fashion category.

Here are some of her looks that I use as style inspiration:
