Hardcore Normcore

"You're so nom-core "

"You're totally channeling j crew/ Everlane "
...


...My co worker gushes to me admiring my grey shirt sleeve hi lo jersey dress platform leather slip ons and top knot


I was going to tell her my inspiration was Sinus infection -chic with everything uncomfortable and my hair hurting to touch 
The roll out of bed "look" wasn't as hard you think


But I was so relieved to hear I didn't look like I felt that I went with it







I've been on a major grey kick lately and it's a perfect transitional out of the harsh black and cold weather, into warmer less intense weather

Plus it is easy to pair with a multitude of colors 




...And can we talk about Everlane's 1 hour delivery in NYC and San Fran...fast fashion to a new level...
and quality at that... it doesn't get better than this folks



Mossimo Dutti knows how to do it

BATWING SLEEVE SWEATER


















...Cause Cos is epically nailing this 



A long duster will pull together your casual look





Best to top off your look, or bottom out so to speak with a pair of leather slip ons... I always find a platform gives your look an extra "kick"
