Style: Like a Moth

Spring is almost here! Are you feeling it where you live, too? The temperatures climbed above 30° this week, and I was so excited, I showed a bit of ankle the other day like a hussy. I’m eager to wear the pair of striped shoes that I picked up recently ($22 bucks, and super cute), but I figure I should wait for the slush and snow piles to melt first. A little ankle is one thing, but showing the whole top of the foot? Who do you think I am?

Anyway. I want to wear this whole outfit right now, bare legs, stripey shoes, and all.

Style: Like a Moth…

  1. The Good Machinery, Ciclop Bracelet, Adorn Milk
    A whole stack of ’em, just like that.

  2. Derek Cardigan Glasses, Coastal
    Keyhole bridge = nerdy chic.

  3. Nars Lipstick in Gipsy, Sephora
    My go-to color these days. Like my natural lip color, but with a bit more oomph.

  4. Moth to a Flame Shift Dress, Gorman
    My favorite scarf is printed with beetles all over it. If I had this dress, I could start a small collection of insect-themed clothing, and life would be awesome.

  5. Dream Collective Brass Levine Earring, Belljar
    Simple, but with enough detail to make them interesting.

  6. Bernice Taper Toe Two Piece Flats, Target
    Adorable, affordable. Perfect spring shoes.

  7. The Zip Transport Bag, Madewell
    I carry a similar tote most days, but I wish mine had a zipper. This one does.

    I’ve always liked you Nicole, but the use of the word ‘hussy’ has endeared me to you. Forever (;
    Strumpet is another fave of mine!

    P.S. Now I have the first sentence of Janet Jackson’s “That’s the way love goes” in my head.

    “Like a hussy” I spit out my salad laughing. Yea, spring and hussy ankles!

    …can we please make “hussy ankles” a thing now? because i adore it. (i didn’t wear tights today for the first time since forever–the only thing exposed between my skirt and boots are my knees [hussy knees!], and the breeze is quite refreshing. i’m excited to let the rest out to play soon!)

    I wonder if a good luggage repair place could add a zipper for you. I suggest this like I have bothered to take any of my leather luggage in for repair, ever…

    Oh how I wish that moth dress came in kids sizes. My daughter _loves_ moths.

    I always love your style posts – I inevitably end up hunting down one (or more) of the items you feature. I’m pretty sure those shoes are a must-have for the Spring (come on, Spring!). Thanks for sharing!

    Swing dress is nice ….. but, wow, the Gorman “moth” quilt got to me. Very clever and cool. Not sure re $$$. Thinking about it. However, a tad much to spend on a little boy! Ha.
