The Refined Woman | Kat

Now it's my turn in the hot seat. Discovering my style over the last few years has been quite a journey.  I've tried to copy other people, dress the way that I think people expect me to dress, and even pretend to like certain clothes that I really don't like just because they were trendy.  What I've come to realize is that I simply cannot keep up with the trends, and it's exhausting to dress for other people.  This has led me on a journey to figure out who I really am, and what I am naturally drawn to.

Hence I've labeled myself a classy-boho.  All-American prep is deep down in my core.  I love blazers, chinos, collared button-ups.  BUT also I have this inner hippie child that I cannot seem to shake.  Lace, frills, and flowy skirts and tops make me feel like a woman.  Today's outfit seems to be just that to me:  classy-boho.

What do you think?

  • Why did you choose this outfit? Fall is my favorite time of the year for fashion.  I love browns, blues, greens, and warm colors and I can wear them all the time in the fall.  This outfit is not only a go-to for shooting, but even in my everyday life.  The chinos are a little casual, however I think my blazer and red lipstick makes it a little more fancy.  This look is clean, classic, and the 31 Bits necklace adds that boho flare so I feel as though I'm staying true to my brand all in all!
  • Was it a success or failure?  Why?  Success! Because I am wearing pants I can maneuver quite comfortably, and my Tory Burch flats come to every wedding with me.  Although expensive; it's well worth the investment.  You only get two feet so I want to make sure I really take care of them on those long 12 hour days.
  • Can you list the brands of all the major/key pieces from the look?  Blazer:  Zara (this is my go-to place for blazers!); Top:  Forever 21 (old); Pants:  JCrew; Belt:  No Rest for Bridget; Shoes:  Tory Burch; Necklace:  31 Bits
