Today's Everyday Fashion: City Camping







































Nicky Hilton is what I call "city camping." She is one s'more away from a campfire, but her heels and bare legs are really more suitable for the city. ;-) I gave city camping a try, and came up with this outfit fit for you cold weather folks (as I would unfortunately suffocate in a look like this in Florida right now). I personally think it's a cute nod to the plaid and mixing prints trends, but tell me - do these outfits work in real life?

  1. I wouldn't wear hers because I couldn't pull off shorts that short, but I totally like this look on you!  I love the plaid and stripes combo, really cute!

  2. Hi J!  I love the plaid and striped look on you!  Looks great!  I have been working on my post all morning on mixing prints because it is so much fun to experiment with!  I love how your boots are so similar to Nicky Hilton's!  xx

  3. I'm not really a fan.  It just doesn't look "right."  Although I do admire your willingness to try new things and help us with different ideas!

  4. The look on you is cuter to me than hers. I have been seeing a lot of gingham and plaid being mixed with different patterns/colors so the look is great! My kids call me fancy lumberjack when  I wear mine as I like to layer it with other button downs.

  8. Eh! I don't know if I like it but yours is definitely cuter than hers. I just don't do plaid. Maybe I should give it a try (c:

  10. It's super cute on you for sure. I just tend to stick with classics and not make dressing be such "an event." Mixing plaid and stripes seems trendy to me. Again I just like more timeless things and not overdoing it with accessories. But you look adorable in everything.

  18. Ok I have to finally ask a huge favor!!!!  I see you wear these jeans all the time and are a definite staple in your wardrobe.  That being said I love the distressed look and the bonus that the holes are not actually holes!  I have tried to find these and cannot.  Would you be so kind as to tell us the name/style of the jean and any specific idenifying numbers that might be on the tag?  You ROCK...love your blog . thx

    Hi, sorry it took me so long to respond - I was in Austin when I got this! I too love these jeans b/c the holes are not actually holes! :-) I have a feeling these exact jeans are going to be hard to find, I got them at American Eagle more than a year ago. I would check there for a similar style though, and the # from the tag is 5900219886.
