Funny Face

Feb 27, 2014


SKIRT: c/o Have Love, Will Travel
TURTLENECK: Banana Republic
SHOES: Urban Outfitters

Okay, totally random, but I feel like I belong in that Parisian jazz club that Audrey goes to in Funny Face. It could be the hat I'm wearing, but I feel rather confident that I can bust out some new-age, interpretive dance moves to a rioting saxophone as smoke fogs around me. Quite confident, yes.

And I think ever since I stumbled upon Have Love, Will Travel my whole outlook on style changed. Now all I want is pretty loafers, snug turtlenecks, and understated plaid skirts. Wearing all of this together brought upon a certain mood, you know? Like I felt sophisticated but interesting, productive but cozy. And the hat. The hat just makes me want to walk down dark, foggy alleys, snapping my fingers all jazzy like.

Also, it was PRETTY amazing hearing all your opinions and stories from yesterday's post! Conclusion: we all share the same mother, haha.


And here are some of my favorite picks from Have Love, Will Travel to give you an idea what the have in stock-I love the scoop-back lace top especially!

  1. hi, darling, just as I was about to close my laptop, I opened bloglovin and got to see your gorgeous outfit! absolutely love it and I love jazz :) too. I think your skirt is amazing, and it fits you so beautifully! <3 Zhanna,

  2. Haha I like pretty loafers too. They're classic, but nowadays, they come in so many great style and colors. Ah. You did this outfit right by combing denim with tartan and a black hat. It's what I'd call "down-home hipster." Have a nice day!

  13. You could totally rock this outfit in that jazz club :) I'm super into loafers right now too. Love how they look with your outfit. And I actually saw that hat at H&M last weekend and was tempted to buy it but my hair had been straightened so I wasn't sure if I could pull it off with curly hair. I am definitely jealous of how amazing it looks on you haha.

  20. Wow, that jacket is just killer! I've been hunting for the perfect jean jacket for soooo long - looks like you've found a great one :)

    Hats always make me feel infinitely cooler...maybe that's why I wear them so often! ;)

  21. Oh, you're making me miss my jean jacket! There's this speak-easy type of place in my city, but it's hidden and you can only go by invitation. I've been wanting to get in there so badly! But yeah, imagine the outfits for that! That's what your hat makes me think of. Lovely look, Marlen!

  22. Love this outfit! That plaid skirt is too cute!

  23. Oh I love this skirt! Yes, every time I wear black on black I feel very Audrey.. which is always a good thing…

  24. It's definitely the hat! I can totally picture it! I'd love to go to a jazzy club with Audrey, but at this point, I think I'd go to a jazzy club with just about anyone… there just aren't many (read: ANY) jazzy clubs in or around my tiny village! I miss Chicago!
