The Classics

Classic New England Style The Northern Magnolia

Casablanca is my favorite movie; I prefer to spend my "mommy time off" digging through local antique shops; and when it comes to personal style, I try to emulate Jackie and Audrey when prepping for the day. So I think it's reasonable to say I'm a big fan of the classics. I try not to get caught up in trends when investing in my wardrobe since they are momentary and the craze (along with my affinity for it) is usually gone the next year. I'm not saying that if you truly love a certain style that you shouldn't make it yours, but I've learned that maintaining basic timeless staples prevents me from staring at my closet and thinking I have nothing to wear.

Luckily I found a company like-minded in their effort to provide high-quality, timeless essentials in simple but stylish black, white and denim. DSTLD has an unpretentious aesthetic which I love, and since they don't sell their collection in retail, they are able to offer their quality pieces at an affordable price point.  And their modest prices don't mean they forego quality. They manufacture their clothing in the same locations as distinguished luxury brands. What I love most about DSTLD's Women's Collection is that the simplicity of the pieces allow me the freedom to style and accessorize freely and tastefully.

I chose to wear DSTLD's White Silk Blouse with their High Waisted Skinny Jeans for a dinner with my family in Washington Square. This blouse is 100% silk and priced at only $75 (I was shocked)! It's lightweight and has the perfect relaxed fit. The versatility of this blouse is boundless (think layering or dressing it up with a cute skirt). It is sheer so I wore it over a black bralette that I think added just a touch of sexy, but of course it would also look lovely over a simple white cami

I'm beyond obsessed with the dark vintage wash of these DSTLD High Waisted Skinnies. The dark rich color makes it perfect for day to night, and I loved the contrast they provided with the bright, fresh white blouse. The high-waisted silhouette is exceptionally flattering, and the denim has the perfect amount of stretch. High-waisted jeans are a wardrobe essential, and they're not going anywhere.
