Style Consultations

How fitting... April was all about style. I've kind of admitted that I don't really have great style beyond what I find to be comfortable and whatever. Literally, ballet flats were definitely invented for girls like me. Less than graceful me prefers to not test gravity. I have a ridiculous collection of blue button downs and half of my closet is more suited for the beach than busy Manhattan.

If you follow me on Twitter or keep up with Levo League, than you must know who Kathryn is! Kathryn works at Levo with me and just so happens to sit across from me at work. She's hilarious and has the absolute best style. Honestly, every morning that she walks into the office, we all take note of what she's wearing. And by "take note," I mean it. It's not uncommon for someone to wear the exact same thing as Kathryn the next day. Yep. Guilty.

While watching an Office Hours, Kathryn was inspired to create her own "sidle hustle." Kathryn has recently launched her own website (and blog!). I volunteered my closet as a guinea pig for her new project.

It was amazing.


Kathryn and I spent all afternoon going through my closet (oh my was that a task) and then caught up on the stoop of my apartment to debrief.


Some of the outfits that Kathryn put together for me. (A lot of my clothes are older so I tried to find similar options in case you want to replicate!)


J. Crew Striped Dress (similar) // Bass Weejuns (similar)

J. Crew Gingham Shirt // White Jeans // Dolce Vita Oxfords (similar)

One of the pieces that we kept going to over and over again was this linen blazer from Theory that I've had for years. It's funny because I rarely wear it, but Kathryn totally made it work with so many different looks.

The J. Crew Linen Schoolboy blazer is a good alternative.


Madewell Gingham Dress

J. Crew Blouse (similar) // Chino Shorts // Eastland Loafers



Tory Burch Dress // J. Crew Sweater // Target Belt




Zara Blazer // J. Crew Blouse (similar) // Urban Jeans

Gap Shirt Dress // J. Crew Socks // Desert Boots

  2. Love all the looks. P.S. you rock a denim shirt better than anyone I have ever seen. Have thought that before. I can't quite seem to pull them off the same way. But you look amazing !

  8. I love the looks with the fitted blazers. I definitely prefer them to the looser cardigans because no matter your shape or size you look thinner and always polished!
