hudson jeans x nordstrom x blushing ambition

10-13-2011
Gibson Knit Riding Jacket, Equipment silk shirt, Hudson Nico jeans, Bass 'Wayfarer' loafers, Coach satchel, Karen Walker sunglasses

Well guys, I did it. I took the plunge and accepted a blog related challenge. I partnered up with Hudson and Nordstrom to style an outfit and participate in their contest on Facebook! Unfortunately it started raining the day I decided to photograph the outfit but I kept the sunglasses on and looked like an idiot anyway. I get a lot of comments asking why I wear sunglasses in every post (Blair and I bonded over this once, haha) and the only thing I can say is that I'm almost always in sunglasses whenever I go outside. I guess it's a safety blanket type thing, I don't know.

So yes, here's my look. Nothing too different from what I usually wear, haha. I'd really, really appreciate it if everyone took the time to vote for me in this contest (you can vote once a day)! I never do things like these so it would be amazing to win but I wouldn't be able to do it without your guy's help. I also hosted an event for them last week so look out for photos in an upcoming post! Thanks guys!

Haha, wearing sunglasses in photos is like the equivalent of wearing a whole face of make-up for me. It can hide a lot when I'm not looking so great :P

I totally hear ya on the sunnies. I have been asked many times why I always wear mine in my blog posts, but honestly by the time I even realize that they are on, it is too late. They are basically glued to my face.

I love your outfit and I will vote for you! I hope you win! That would be cool. Your bag is sweetness as well.

i enjoy reading your blog and find it one of the more endearing ones out there. it takes a lot of courage and creativity to continue cranking out posts, especially when there can be a tremendous amount of negativity directed at you. having said that, i fear you may take my constructive criticism as just that--plain (negative) criticism.

at any rate, i just wanted to express that lately your skin tone appears ashy, especially your latest post, with the orangey red lipstick. i think your lightened hair color, as beautiful and fun as it sounded to do, doesn't quite flatter your skin tone. i think you'd look much better with a different shade and/or chose other make up palettes. i know it's autumn and you live in foggy san francisco, or maybe it's your camera/photo-shopping...but, i just hate to see your typically flattering shots looks slightly off.

Angielyn said...

I love the whole outfit!!!!!

Brodie said...

i love this look! it's so cute and casual, but equally quite professional and clean cut looking too. how you achieve that, i do not know. congrats haha!

Its the simplicity that i love about this look! Good luck dear! I always thought u wore sunnies cause youre california cool..haha

Katherine said...

I just bought a pair of Bass loafers! How coincidental. I'm loving your simple, clean, classic outfit as always. And even though this is menswear-inspired, you still retain a femininity that doesn't need ruffles and frills and flowery prints. You're my biggest style inspiration.

You always look so happy in your pictures, jumping around and laughing all the time! Love to see that, normally bloggers have this pissed face and stare down all the time. I sometimes see myself doing that as well, but then I try a little smile and it always looks better :) Adore your look: very sophisticated, very stylish yet simple and comfortable, in other words: very you. Good luck in the contest!

Love, Lisa

Wow - such cute pictures! I can't believe I just found your blog. I moved from San Fran to Paris 2 months ago, and while I adore Paris, I appreciate SF so much more now, and your photos are making me a bit homesick, in a good way. Also, I live in those Bass loafers. I have tried so many times to walk around in heels in Paris, but I hate to take the metro if it is not raining, so no heels it is. Can't wait to keep reading through your posts!
