visual notes

Visual notes/thoughts on clothes/looks/styles for summer.  AKA my thoughts on getting dressed these days.  Also a wish-list of sorts

(I scanned, but I’m not sure from where, sorry) great basics for summer – simple shapes, light colors.  Looks great.  The bottom could be pants, shorts or a skirt and it would be equally as wonderful.

(again I scanned this from a French magazine, but I’m not sure which one) A more complicated summer look – the blazer is definitely too much for where I live, but still cute. I’m closer to embracing athletic apparel in non-athletic situations, but it’s been slow.


(from’s lookbook) very nice and simple.  Ever since I saw Coco avant Chanel I’ve been searching for a great striped shirt.  This one from Rag & Bone on is $115 – more than I’d like to spend on a basic piece like that.  Pretty, though.  Shorts are great too.

(from 3.1 Phillip Lim 2010 resort – I looooooove the jacket, and the skirt, and the shirt… ok, I just love.

(also from Jenni Kayne resort 2010 – great colors and a great way to toughen up a sweet little dress/skirt.  I’m not sure how I feel about the lack of collar on the jacket, but I definitely like the general idea.

It’s nice to dream, but mostly it’s too hot to wear anything interesting.  My first concern is not melting and the second is looking good, and the third is not freezing in air conditioning.  Oh well, soon it will be winter and I’ll be wishing it were summer…

Basic Spring II

So here’s some more spring looks that I liked and thought were nice as inspiration, outfits that one could replicate.

Some classic slouchy summer looks from Jenni Kayne.  I especially like the sparkly skirt, although I have to stay it does look a little bit like a walk-of-shame outfit.

Matthew Williamson, who I love, he always has such great colors.

Moschino Cheap and Chic – Sort of like the look from the last post by Jaeger London.  The pants are so great – I’ll post more about that another time.

Nicole Miller – who I usually associate with horrible formal dresses at the mall, but I really like this look.  It might be the hat, I’ve always liked hats.

Rachel Comey – I love it, the colors, the pattern in the shirt.  Great.

Shipley & Halmos – Great neutral colors, nice fit, lovely.

Travota – again, the pants, the top, so nice and casual and good for warm weather.

Tuleh – I was actually surprised how many pictures I saved of long skirts and tshirts.  My first reaction to that combination usually involves combat boots – so not really my thing, but I like this one, I think it’s the colors.
