I've always been a fan of good ol' Americana vibes and this 27 miles sweater makes me feel American AF! I just love how vintage it looks and it might be the softest sweater I have ever worn. When I first got this sweater, I actually day dreamed about wearing it under a blazer, like this Anine Bing one I'm wearing here, because I am really into the texture combo. The small check plaid mixed with the bold stars and stripes make for a very street style inspired look, one that I received many compliments on when I wore this outfit IRL. Add my beloved blue Chanel and you've got yourself a full on Americana look complete with vintage inspired jeans and white tennies. I think Tom Petty would be proud.
Ever since I discovered Reformation a couple years ago, it's been very hard for me to go a couple weeks without adding one of their pieces to my wardrobe, especially in the spring and summer time. If you have been following me for awhile, you know that spring and summer style is actually very difficult for me because I am such a cold weather style lover. It's not that I don't love spring and summer (I promise I do), I just feel uninspired by a lot of warm weather styles. I know, you're probably thinking I'm crazy but I feel like I stand in front of my closet all summer scratching my head and asking myself "what do I even wear today?" I mean, what even is WFB style without fabulous outwear and layers?!
If you have followed me for awhile, you probably know that my sister (Ariana) and I are very close. We have been best friends for our entire lives and have always shared a really special and unique relationship. Ariana and I are always perplexed when we hear that siblings are close since we honestly can't imagine our lives without the other in it. Growing up, our parents always emphasized how important we were to each other and that really stuck. We truly understand each other and love being together.
You're going to think I'm crazy when you read this but here goes. I've never owned a piece of leopard clothing. EVER. With how much I love fashion, you would think that at some point a leopard something or other would have made it's way into my closet but NO. Oh wait, I take that back. I did have a pair of leopard ankle boots but that doesn't count as clothing, right? ANYWAY, I never really felt like leopard clothing was really me...until I saw this dress.
