Holy Hipster

by Jessica Sturdy on September 28, 2012

How’s this for switching it up this week?! (In case you missed it, I was on a bit of a burgundy bender earlier this week. Evidenced here, here, here, and here.)

This outfit is SO not “me,” but what can I say? I guess my East Village neighbors are wearing off on me. This boho-ish look isn’t here to stay, but I felt like switching it up last Sunday for a casual lunch at Momofuku!

J.Crew Sweater / Madewell Shorts / gifted Sequin Necklace / Wanted Booties / Anne Klein Watch (old, similar here) / gifted Stella & Dot Bangle

PS – Did you hear the news? J.Crew is running a promotion for 25% off and free shipping with code: STYLE25! Hurry, ends Sunday! Here’s what I’m lusting after…

See? I told you the prepster would be back… :)

I love this look – although I’m a little jealous you can still wear shorts…it’s freezing here in upstate NY! Love those booties and can’t wait to see the other ways you wear them this fall :)

Is it really?! I didn’t realize how big the temperature gap was! It’s be in the 70’s still… Cool enough in the mornings to feel like fall, which is my favorite :)

cute outfit, I love your booties I got similar ones from Guess this week and cannot wait to get them. I’m also all over this J.Crew sale I got middle sweater in the first row already as well as the second row middle skirt.


Jessica September 29, 2012 at 12:55 am

I got the pink skirt in the middle row, too! :)

I love love love love this outfit.
You should go boho more often. I have been eyeing those shoes forever. Great necklace too. I love the way you put it all together. Happy weekend!

Ugh I want EVERYTHING from J. Crew. They’re killing me (and my budget)! I think it’s fun to switch it up every now and then and wear something totally different – most of the time because it ends up looking great, just like this outfit does on you!

I LOVE this look, Jessica!! I wish I had your legs so I could pull it off this well – I guess I’ll be hitting up this gym this weekend! 😉

I just bought those boots! I didn’t think to pair them with these colors but I love it!


amy September 28, 2012 at 10:32 am

Love a good sweater with a pair of shorts, so cute!



adri @ clothes make me happy September 28, 2012 at 10:38 am

I am LOVING this outfit! It is one of my favorites you’ve posted!


amy September 28, 2012 at 10:40 am

love everything about the shorts+long sleeve combo!


Maca September 28, 2012 at 11:52 am

I adooooore this look! Perfect for the weather going on right now!


Erin @ Loop Looks September 28, 2012 at 12:40 pm

This look is boho?? Still looks preppy to me. Must be the boots that cross the line :-) They are adorable, by the way.


Jessica September 28, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I see your point… Polka dots are very preppy, and the glitter, too. But the slouchy sweater, short shorts, and ankle booties? Screams boho to me. :)


Emma September 28, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Even if you say this isn’t you, you still look like you wearing it…so that’s a success!! If you swapped out the necklace for something more traditional, I’m sure it would feel less boho and more normal =)


Rachel September 28, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Love your glitter booties with the polka dot shorts! So stylish and cute!
