I was running errands yesterday listening to Vermont Public Radio when there was a segment about Vermont fashion. It just so happens, it’s New York Fashion Week. I literally had no idea.
As I was listening to the segment I couldn’t help but think about how Vermont has influenced me, in so many ways, including my personal style. It feels like the way I dress now (though some may not notice a big difference) feels the most natural, comfortable, and fully me. My everyday style is pretty casual, easy, functional, and practical. Likely what most people who live in Vermont would also say about their wardrobe.
While I’ve always loved fashion, I’ve started to see it in a new light. It’s not that I don’t care, but I also kind of don’t care. I don’t care about fashion week, the latest trends, the “it” brands. I just want to wear something that I feel good in, but that is above all, comfortable and practical. The fashion gods might call that a faux-pas. I call it living in Vermont. And I wouldn’t change a thing.
Here’s the best of the week. – Jess & Caylin

“When Kyle de Rothschild Deschanel arrived in New York nightlife and venture fundraising circles a few years ago, he was an instant hit. Equal parts charm, enterprise, and fabulous family wealth, he seemed to live on a 24/7 carousel of mega-dollar deals and raucous parties. It was almost as if he had conjured his entire existence out of thin air. What if he had?” (Vanity Fair)
Furniture isn’t what it used to be. It used to last generations, now it can barely survive a move. (Washington Post)

“Boy crazy” was what people called it. “She was so boy crazy,” I would hear about my girlfriends. I never heard the reverse, that a boy was “girl crazy.” Girls having crushes, sneaking out at night to have fun: It seems innocent enough. But in my small, conservative town, a “wrong” choice at a young age could cut girls off from their future dreams, leaving them mired in despair.” (The Atlantic)
If you’re on the lookout for a comfy clog these are seriously awesome. They don’t slip off, they have a cushiony footbed and don’t hurt my high arches.
I ran out of my Ursa Major Mountain Glow serum so thought I’d try something else and it did not even compare. It’s a little pricier than some other serums but my skin just loves it. Highly recommend.
OMG. Sézane and their fall collections. Drooling over the lookbook for their Sunday drop. My favorites are the Samuel Jumper (sweater vest), the Teo Jacket, and the Nina Shirt.
