*This publish comprises a collaboration with Sezane & gifted merchandise
I really feel like I speak about this on Instagram each single day – however, do you know that I lastly acquired spherical to doing a private styling session with the one and solely, Allison Bornstein? A YouTube video is on its method and I’m going to boil down the recommendation she gave me right into a weblog publish too. So within the meantime I’ll allow you to in on a bit of perception she gave me into my three phrases. In case you’re new to the tactic it’s the concept of getting three phrases that may sum up your model and show you how to to navigate styling every day and be your North Star when making future purchases. I’d already settled on impartial as my first phrase however Allison threw ‘refined‘ and ‘natural‘ into the combo and I used to be like ‘THAT IS SO PERFECT’. So this month’s Sezane* drop from yours actually encapsulates each single one in every of my three phrases – the sandals are refined, the costume is minimal and the bag is natural and let me inform you I’m *feeling* myself on this outfit. Listed below are a couple of shopping for and styling ideas…
Purchase the bag. Actually the Paloma Basket Bag* is maybe essentially the most good raffia tote I’ve discovered. I like the slim straps and the extra facet pockets, however most of all – I like that proven fact that it’s tender and malleable. Not solely does this imply that it’s much less more likely to snap and break like firmer kinds, it’s a lot simpler to pack in your suitcase for taking in your travels and it simply provides a pleasant little bit of a slouchy texture to your outfit.
Sudden merchandise in bagging space. A raffia bag is a helpful one to have in your assortment as a result of you need to use it for an additional technique in Allison’s toolkit – the ‘unsuitable bag‘ idea. The identical thought works with footwear too, but it surely’s the concept choosing a bag that’s a bit of surprising given the remainder of the outfit you’re sporting. Possibly you’re sporting a blazer, t-shirt and a few tailor-made trousers. You may sometimes attain for one thing leather-based to go along with that, however why not strive a straw tote? It switches up the look and might add that one thing one thing that typically it’s arduous to seek out. It’s additionally going to come back in so helpful for transitional styling too when issues can begin to really feel a bit heavy, throw on this to present a lighter vibe.
Jazz it up. The Maxine Costume* is superbly minimal (for measurement reference I’m sporting a M). However why not deal with it like the proper canvas to hold off the remainder of your three phrases from? Given the entire ‘refined‘ factor I’ve added some bolder, however nonetheless stylish, jewelry – it offers that form of elegant edge, a little bit of curiosity. Then for ‘natural‘ I’ve added the bag. I actually really feel like this bag goes to come back in so helpful at any time when I discover outfits are missing in that high quality.
The ‘in-between’ sandal. Everyone knows that it’s the summer time of the ‘barely-there‘ sandal, however I discover having one thing that’s a bit extra ‘in-between‘ is actually useful too. Particularly when you have got a day that includes a load of strolling. They could be a little extra snug and simply have the help that you simply want. For reference I discover it’s higher to measurement up in Sezane footwear (I’m sporting a 40 within the Judith Sandals*).
