Style Direction 2013: Just My Type

Nubby Twiglet Just My Type Style Direction

About twice a year, I come up with a new style direction to get myself excited and to encourage myself to expand beyond the all too easy default of black skinny jeans, a black leather jacket and black boots (great as a uniform but very boring). In the past year, I’ve embraced the future in Ladylike Urban Warrior and then gone mad for plaid in School’s Out Forever.

This time around, I’m embracing my obsessive love for typography in Just My Type. Luckily, I’ve been noticing designers offering up a bountiful number of type-covered sartorial choices.

This set of photos was shot in my back yard in Portland before I left for London and though you can’t tell, it was about 31 degrees out there! In between chattering teeth, it was worth it in the spirit of showing off my newest wardrobe addition, this amazing newsprint skirt by Carrie Hammer.

I fell in love with these Kate Spade heels awhile back after seeing Bri rock them in another color. I love that they’re way more ladylike than anything else I own and that they don’t have a platform. There are those times when you need a classic shaped heel and these are low enough to be super comfy.

If you’re looking for some type-covered goodness of your own, here are a few items on my wish list that you may enjoy:

Rocky looks like such a grumpy little gremlin here! Any time we try to take a photo of him, he won’t sit still but the second the camera is aimed at me, he pops up in every shot. Someone likes to be the center of attention at all times. ;)


What about you? Do you ever come up with a mood or a theme to pull yourself out of a style rut?
