Acid-Wash

I’m obsessed with jean on jean, and if one half of the equation is acid-washed, that’s even better. In honor of my Montreal-born boyfriend’s 25th birthday (this past Saturday), I’m taking the Canadian tuxedo to a whole new level of crazy.

Short Skirt, Long(ish) Jacket

I purchased this plaid skirt a million years ago at Screaming Mimi’s, a legendary vintage boutique in New York that’s a must-visit when I’m in the city. It’s survived countless closet clean-outs because I love the shape and bright colors.

High-waisted plaid skirts are back with a vengeance, so I dusted this one off and styled it with a cropped sweater and structured blazer. I like showing that sliver of skin that’s set to become an even bigger trend this spring (clearly).

There’s something major about a jacket hitting almost exactly where a miniskirt ends. Why else would there be a song about it?

Jetty

My family’s beach house in Avalon, N.J. is my happy place. I’d live there year-round if I could. It’s so quiet during the fall, and we traveled down the shore this past weekend for my dad’s birthday. I decided to shoot at the Avalon jetty, one of my favorite summer spots. I love going there to think, find inspiration and get an insane view of the ocean.

One of the best things about Avalon is that it’s super casual fashion-wise. No one’s piling on makeup and styling their hair to grab lunch. All you do is hop off the beach, throw on an oversized shirt, and jump on a bike to get wherever you’re going. I find that refreshing, which is why I decided to wear a simple pair of boyfriend jeans, a comfy long-sleeve tee and my trusty Doc Martens to rep the real Jersey Shore.

It was windy, so there’s quite a bit of hair whippage in this post.
