{outfit post} here comes the rain again...

This is one of those outfits that's so easy it hurts, which is pretty much always my MO on Tuesdays. I can't even tell you the amount of wear I've gotten out of this Gap jacket, it's just the right warmth for fall, and slightly water-resistant, too. Do I wish I had the original version from Barbour or Burberry? yes, but for now (and for $70) this is pretty perfect. (Can't you tell from my self-satisfied smile and jaunty umbrella angle?)

I'm also having a serious moment for tartan plaid, guys. Preppy yes, but also a little more city-friendly than a buffalo check or western-inspired plaid. I scooped up this J. Crew shirt for The Hunt, which was sort of an impulse (read: panic) purchase, but one that has served me well in the aftermath. All in all, this is definitely a lot of navy, and I like it.

Oh and the boots - the boots! I did a fun styling project with Hunter Boots for Eat, Sleep, Denim (coming soon, y'all) and I fell hard for these uber-equestrian boots in the process. Throw it all together and I'm basically one mini-van away from picking up the kids at lacrosse practice, wouldn't you say? But, in a good way... right?

  11. Taylor, I've read so so many of your articles on IFB, and without sounding like a complete cringe, you have inspired me so much to keep going with my blog. I think actually, that you are living my dream life at the moment! I've just graduated from studying fashion, re-started my blog (seriously this time), and my aim is to get a work placement in New York (after my exciting internships in London!) IFB is probably the best thing thats happened to my fashion existence!
    I'd really love you to check out my blog and let me know what you think - It would mean a lot from a blogger I admire so much! (there I go with the cringe again, sorry!)
    P.S it also helps that I absolutely love your style!
