We all know how much I love me some monochromatic looks, so naturally when I purchased this pair of Current/Elliott jeans I knew it was only a matter of time before I dabbled in the burgundy/red mash up (*note: this could also be because I’m not drinking this month and am admittedly having some red wine withdrawls).

I threw this outfit together in the very last minute before a brunch with some friends on Sunday and have to say, I’m quite pleased with the results (which is a rarity when I just throw a few pieces together without so much as a glance in the mirror). Now I know what you’re all thinking, “Sonia, you need to stop wearing those Acne boots, it’s getting old,” and I hear you, I really do. But here’s the thing, I CAN’T STOP! They are hands down the best shoes I have ever owned and it’s a daily struggle not to wear them all the time, even though it already seems like I do. They’re like the black skinny jeans of shoes in my wardrobe - just when I think I’m ready to move on, I slip them on and poof! my outfit is 1,323,252,313 times better than it was before.

Do you have something like that in your closet? Please share so that perhaps I can move on from my current addiction.

I’ve always thought it would be cool to hike on sand dunes, perhaps even roll down a few if the opportunity presented itself. There’s just something wonderful about endless, rolling hills of sand with the occasional shrub or camel sighting.

I bought this Mara Hoffman tunic-y thing over a year ago and have only worn it as a beach cover-up but it’s far too beautiful to reserve only for beach side occasions. So I threw it over a black bandeau top and a pair of black leggings for an imaginary excursion on some sand dunes. I love the way it blows in the wind and all of its intricate aztec detailings that Mara Hoffman does impeccably well. While probably best worn only in the summertime, I can totally imagine wearing it in the fall with a heavy leather jacket (I feel like I want to wear everything with a leather jacket and I’m ok with that…) and some ripped up jeans. However, a hot day on some dunes requires the most comfortable and light apparel, but next time I think I’ll go barefoot.

I’m always trying to figure out new ways to wear pieces in my closet. A dress can so easily become a skirt (see here), scarves can be transformed into shirts (see here), but what about a skirt worn as a shirt?!

It was a real scorcher in NYC yesterday and I mussed and fussed with different outfits until I broke into a sweat. All I wanted was to wear a jacket and jeans but no way was I about to put on pants equivalent to sausage casings. So I decided to go the more experimental route. I was originally wearing the above “shirt” as a skirt, the way it’s meant to be worn, but didn’t feel like doing the whole itsy bitsy mini-skirt thing on a day when I knew my legs would stick to anything I sat on. So, I pulled it up over my lady friends, transforming it into a tube top (an article of clothing I don’t even own) and paired it with a flowy silk skirt my Mom bought me when she was traveling in India. Since the skirt-turned-shirt was a bit looser around the waist, I had plenty of breathing room which prevented serious overheating.

As much as I love shopping (duh), it’s nice to know that I can still transform pieces in my wardrobe into entirely new articles of clothing. I wonder what I’ll discover next!
