Crumpet sweater, Ralph Lauren shirt, Jet by John Eshaya jeans, Converse sneakers
J.W. Anderson sweater, Brooks Brothers shirt, Jet by John Eshaya jeans, Cynthia Rowley shoes
I'm not exactly one for uniforms, but if there was ever one to pique my interest for Fall, this is it: collared shirt, pullover sweater, pants, and flats. Not exactly groundbreaking here, but there's something very enticing about the possibilities the shirt/sweater combo presents. It runs the gamut from casual to dressy, sophisticated to louche--endlessly appropriate for a myriad of occasions. These two outfits are especially speciale because they introduce two new favorite jumpers to the blog! Some of you may recognize the J.W. Anderson from my "5 days" feature, although this time I dressed it down for an easy Friday with some amazing Cynthia Rowley embroidered slippers (yes, the velvet slipper is a trend I wholeheartedly endorse and will participate in). Crumpet may not be so familiar to some of you, but it is a line I can wholeheartedly endorse. They make the cutest feminine knit pieces (see above) and do so at very decent prices. This particular one was a birthday present that I wore on my birthday (as were the sparkly Converse--yes, I was turning 11). The two outfits also exemplify what I can love about the uniform idea--simply changing the shoes between these sweater-shirt-jeans outfits makes oodles of difference in the overall look. I love how such small changes can have such a big impact. Not, THAT, ladies and gentleman is a reason if there ever was one to recommend the idea of "uniform" dressing.
