Subway Inspiration

One of my favorite sources of inspiration is the subway. I am constantly seeing a wealth of fashion inspiration and mostly from the men. I see men wearing a certain combination of colors, textures and proportion that I find incredibly inspiring. Perhaps it backlash from my years of ultra-girly sartorial choices, but the other day I saw a man wearing brown chukka boots with black pants with a checked shirt, tweed coat and scarf in varying shades of grey. Last Friday that stranger was my fashion inspiration.
Thirfted blouse & sweater, high-waist velvet Levi's, Modcloth shoes, vintage purse from Heart City Vintage, Uniqlo coat, Wooden Ships scarf

  1. Can never go wrong getting inspired by menswear. Personally, I don't think the dudes get enough credit. I swear I've seen way more guys decked the eff out lately..it's wonderful. You look great btw! Slightly Annie Hall-esque, it's lovely.

  8. I feel like I'm still stuck with super-girly stuff, and also have no real intent to go shopping, so I guess I'm going to be endlessly inspired, but unchanging for the next few months.  I do like guy-style... I always thought it was for the human coat-hangers of the female world, but you're a normal shape and look awesome so maybe it's all just about proportion..

    Regardless of where the inspiration comes from (and dudes on the subway seems as good a place as any), the end result is super cute!

  16. I got a vintage green cardigan for Christmas and for some reason I've been thinking it would go wonderfully with black pants (shocking, since I hate wearing pants). Thanks for confirming that assumption without me even trying it on!

  26. I hardly ever take the subway (terrible new yorker, I know) but when I do it's always kind of wonderful seeing so many different people and styles all packed into one place. This is such an awesome outfit!

  27. This outfit is so awesome and casual. It's exactly what I've been wanting to wear lately, but I lack cool pants like the ones you have! I really love your shoes and cardigan too.
