Today's outfit of white jeans and blue chambray button down shirt with tan belt and bright coat made me think of Ingunn. Looking at my photos, I think I don't channel Ingunn very successfully. Her looks are so polished, and I feel, I don't know--less polished or perhaps just lacking that little something special that she always adds. But I should say I didn't set out to channel Ingunn's style, I just thought of her once I had the outfit on. Ingunn, if you're reading this, I hope I haven't offended you by musing on your style here!
So anyway, I wonder if my idea of polished is a little less than polished. I recall a discussion of polished versus RATE style here on YLF--Angie asked which team we were on a few years ago--and I swear I answered that I was on team RATE, but I don't actually see an answer from me on that thread. Anyway, I think I'm probably not RATE. But I'm not really polished, either.
This outfit felt fine, regardless. It's not what I would call quintessentially "me," but I'm comfortable in. And I love the jeans--so glad I got them.
The outfit (worn Tuesday for a day off): white boyfriend jeans (Kut from the Kloth, Catherine); blue chambray shirt (Caslon); tan belt (Trafalgar); denim cap-toe ballet flats (AGL); navy and tan satchel (Dooney & Bourke); bright coral trench coat (Eddie Bauer, Christine Trench); blue and white striped earrings (gift).
A little detail. . . These jeans have a triple belt loop in center back, and I'm not crazy about it, for some reason. I've discovered I like the look better, if I just skip the middle belt loop!
Thanks for looking! Thoughts and suggestions welcome, as always!
