American Sportswear Reigns

m- Time home means time with this glorious trio. A couple of weeks ago, I only was able to spend a few hours at homebase in Raleigh, because of work, but I did managed to venture out to the North Carolina countryside to visit the Hendrickson's Family Farm. It was so nice to get some fresh air, play with the horses, and get my boots dirty. While I was out traipsing through the fields, I observed how fitting this trio's sportswear of choice went with the American farm aesthetic. I loved it. 
So....these beautiful creatures are all tenants of Katie's phenomenal farm...well, minus Sara and Harrison above. Katie is always kind enough to bring the party to the country so I definitely wanted to seize this opportunity to take some pictures. These three and their classic American sportswear are (of course) the perfect compliment to this glorious landscape. 
Sara knows what is up in the world of looking good.
 I have watched Sara's wardrobe evolve over the years and she knows exactly what looks great on her.
Well done girl.

There is something special about staples in regards to one's wardrobe. A classic oxford, with well-fitted jeans, and a nice pair of boots can do nothing but good. Throw on a leather jacket, or a blazer, and you've mastered the look gallantly. 
Harrison and Sara, rocking the leather. I have boots very similar to Sara's (see right) that I got at Aldo one day recently at the mall with Sara and Harrison. These boots have become my staple, everyday shoes that I can't stop wearing. I'm wearing them now. 
Thanks for sharing the crib, Katie. 
American classics will never die. 

Be young, be dope, be proud. Like an American.

Shed a Layer: Scarves, fur, and denim

m- Living in North Carolina, you really never know what you're going to get when it comes to weather. We are extremely lucky, as dwellers of the South, to have fairly mild temperatures pretty consistently. With four distinct seasons, us North Carolinians have four distinct wardrobes to dabble in. I find this wonderful and naturally prone to variety. Currently, we find ourselves wrapping up what we call winter as we shed our heavy layers and delve into the world of light cardigans and scarves...spring will be here before we know it. Look how Dina finds comfort and style in this transition stage between the seasons. 
This faux fur is my jam. I think there is always a place for fur. We've been donning fur since the beginning of time as a functional, fashion staple....lets keep it up, shall we?
Dina is a Kardashian. But better. 
This big, comfy scarf is from an H&M in Chicago. 

Throw on a denim shirt, a scarf, a fur vest...whateva...and you're ready for the next cool breeze to sweep by. Soon enough we'll have shed the cardigan and will bask in the sun. 

Because we're obsessed.

Happy Inauguration

We got to dress up to celebrate four more years with Barack Obama as our President. 
We laughed, we danced, we sang with Lady Gaga. Take a look

God bless America.
