I have a confession: I wore this top three times in the past…three days. I know, it’s gross. But I shower twice a day (I have minor OC tendencies) and I mainly just changed into it while sitting around, save for today. I just wore it with shorts and jeans (and pajama pants) around the house. A little bit of menswear inspiration in an otherwise girlie getup changed it up enough to go out. Of course, I ended up switching out the skirt for some menswear inspired shorts when the wind picked up, so call me Fickle Fanny.

This story is going nowhere. Let’s just end on this note: I’m gross. I’ll wear something different tomorrow.

p.s. Is anyone else excited about the Further Seems Forever reunion?
p.p.s. Anyone selling tickets for Weezer at Roseland (Blue Album night)? Kicking myself for not paying attention to the sale date:(

    love this outfit, especially with the knee-high socks! the shirt looks so comfy that I don't blame you for wearing it 3 days in a row. πŸ™‚

  3. natalia says: November 4, 201012:49 am


    Gah. That was one of my favourite songs back in HS. <3
    And and and! What a cute semi-schoolgirly outfit! I adore the pattern on the skirt, and the hi desert boots with the red knee socks is genius.

  4. Kimberly Grace says: November 4, 201012:50 am

    Yayyyy Further reunion! I'm dragging you to Dashboard and we're going to Weezer. Finally, shows you'll go to with me!!

  8. Charmalade says: November 4, 20101:24 am

    Fickle Fanny you may be, this outfit is still inspirational to me. πŸ™‚ In the simplest and best way, too. I love the colors and how casual yet pulled together this look is. I do covet those socks!

  9. Mary @ stylefyles says: November 4, 20101:24 am

    your whole outfit is great, but that skirt steals the show! I love the undeniably fall colors and the schoolgirl-esque look without being over the top! really great style!

  10. The Fancy Teacup says: November 4, 20101:37 am

    i can see why you wore that adorable shirt a few days in a row…it's so darling and comfy! and i love the jeffrey campbell lace ups and the vintage hat.

    i'm excited about the further seems forever reunion too! πŸ™‚


  11. Marie-Eve says: November 4, 20101:41 am

    Fabulous outfit. Love love love the shoes.

  13. Steffy's Pro's and Con's says: November 4, 20101:52 am

    i usually don't ever leave comments on blogs that i read because i am lazy, but for some reason i am hooked on your blog! i think it is just because my life seems so similar to yours… growing up in florida, going to college at ucf, and falling in love with nyc. although i for some reason find myself in nicaragua, don't ask. anyway, i absolutely love your style, i love that you shop in all of the same thrift stores i went to when i lived in bushwick, i love that you live in brooklyn and i think all of the photos of you are great. it is also insanely fascinating that you make your own clothes. anyway, keep creating! i will keep reading! if you are bored (which it seems like you never are) you can read my not-as-fashionable blog… steffysprosandcons.blogspot.com


  14. Karla says: November 4, 20102:08 am

    sigh fall colors! how I miss the north…although living near the beach almost ties with the colors of fall…no not really…oh and I'm Karla by the way, I've read your blog, and I fell in love with your style πŸ˜€

  15. grrfeisty says: November 4, 20102:09 am

    that shirt looks amazingly soft πŸ˜€
    i wore a postlapsaria original this weekend πŸ™‚ and just posted the photos tonight!

  16. Reminds Me Of says: November 4, 20102:09 am

    can't wait for the further seems forever reunion, for real.

  17. Elle says: November 4, 20102:18 am

    Very cute! I don't think it's so gross..if you're just sitting around the house, you don't have to wash a shirt right away.

    Oh, and I often shower twice a day too. Not always, but I always take a morning shower & will sometimes take a night one – if I got sweaty or sometimes just to feel more refreshed (when you're tired, getting into a hot shower for a few minutes can really revive you)

  18. Katelyn says: November 4, 20102:22 am

    I love the knee highs with the skirt! I am knee high obsessed this year!

    How do you go about picking out knee highs? Do you usually buy ones you like and work them into an outfit or shop for ones you know would finish a look?


  19. One Girl says: November 4, 20102:23 am

    Keiko – this is my favorite outfit from you so far!!!! I love the layering, the colors, the hat – everything. Great job sister!

  20. Becca Jane says: November 4, 20102:27 am

    Love this outfit – that skirt is so pretty! And it looks great with those wedges.

  21. janice NY says: November 4, 20102:29 am

    I'm always drawn to colorful outfits with different textures and patterns that I wouldn't have thought to put together. Love this charming look!

  22. Kate says: November 4, 20102:47 am

    Absolutely no judgement on multi-day wears! I think we're all guilty! LOVING these socks – such a pretty color – and the wedges are really cute!

  23. TrophyBoutique says: November 4, 20102:47 am

    Love those wedges, but they are kind of heavy aren't they? I feel like I get a full workout when I walk around in my rust-colored ones. Love the colors in this outfit!

  24. ChiqueChic says: November 4, 20102:53 am

    I'm totally guilty of multiple wears in one week, too! I change my outfit a few times a day, though. Love your blog! πŸ™‚

    love the schoolgirl feel to this look!!! you look so adorable!! πŸ˜€

    Love how you make all the colors coordinate & complement each other!



  34. Penny Dreadful says: November 4, 20107:48 am

    Wearing a favourite top a few times in a few days isn't gross, it is normal πŸ™‚ The skirt is lovely, I never know what to do with madras but it looks great here, and I love the muted colours.


  35. lala says: November 4, 20107:55 am

    nice outfit
    so adorable

  36. Anonymous says: November 4, 20108:42 am

    Cool to see your hair down more these days. πŸ™‚ This outfit is fantastic, so many elements coming together so well.


  37. Annie says: November 4, 201010:30 am

    First time I've commented here, just because I love this outfit so much! It's perfectly quirky and colourful. Those knee high socks with tights look so cosy but sexy at the same time. Inspiring!

  38. Kelly says: November 4, 201010:50 am

    I love the wedges with the socks! Great look.

    lots of love, Vanessa


  41. cococollage says: November 4, 20101:25 pm

    Great look! I really love that skirt

  42. Erin vs. Paris says: November 4, 20102:02 pm

    Do those socks stay up well? I always want to wear over-the-knee socks but it seems like I was constantly having to pull up the ones I've bought in the past…I saw that Forever21 had some cute ones the other day…

  43. Future Lint says: November 4, 20102:44 pm

    This is such a perfect fall look! i love the matching socks and tights!

  44. ❀Cate❀ says: November 4, 20103:37 pm

    You look adorable xoxo

  45. Vicki says: November 4, 20104:09 pm

    i LOVE this outfit!!! the skirt, the hat, the socks over tights..amazing πŸ™‚ x

  46. MOUSEVOX VINTAGE says: November 4, 20104:36 pm

    I'm terrible about finding a garment that I attach to for a few days, but I too am an avid fan of personal hygiene, so I don't consider it to be too gross.

    Love the way you've styled it here!

  47. Holly Courtney says: November 4, 20104:50 pm

    I really like how you combined tights with knee high socks. I'm not daring enough to wear knee highs alone (not crazy about drawing attention to my thighs) but I would wear them like this. Also, you are not gross. Even if you wear the same shirt multiple times throughout 3 days you shower 2x a day so you never really get the clothes dirty. That's my thinking anyway πŸ™‚

  48. Ashley, Lions Lace Lattes says: November 4, 20105:05 pm

    I love this outfit. The tights and socks together is cute. I really love your shirt. Who cares if you wore three time in three days. lol. I've been wearing the same cardi everyday this week too. It's just too comfy to take off.

  49. Nancie says: November 4, 20105:35 pm

    looking good, love the combo!! xoxo http://www.fashionablenotebook.blogspot.com

  50. Stephanie says: November 4, 20105:50 pm

    one of my favourite outfits πŸ˜€ You look really beautiful & the combination's great! πŸ˜€ Love the last picture :]

    Stay happy & LIve.Laugh.Love.

  51. graphology says: November 4, 20106:06 pm

    It is a lovely look πŸ™‚

  52. Keiko Lynn says: November 4, 20106:26 pm

    Erin vs. Paris: I know what you mean about the socks not staying up. I have an issue with some that I got from Urban Outfitters, which stinks because they're really cute. These stay up really well. They're also $4 or something, so you really can't lose.

  53. Lok-yinLok-yin says: November 4, 20106:27 pm

    I saw your halloween look on lookbook. that is a really nice look. but this one too(:

  54. Sophi says: November 4, 20106:34 pm

    Ooooh I love that skirt! And naw… not gross to wear the same shirt three days in a row. I've definitely done it.


  55. Carina says: November 4, 20107:19 pm

    i love this outfit <3 especially those socks, pretty colour xxx

  56. Stitch Vixen says: November 4, 20109:51 pm

    Love this outfit! Also, what is the name of the lipstick you're wearing? I normally just stick to my Burt's Bees tinted balm, but it's such a pretty color!

  57. CaliforniaCandy says: November 4, 201011:11 pm

    Cute shoes, love your hair!


  58. chibi says: November 5, 20104:08 am

    I like the tights and over the knee sock combo.
    Very smart and practical.

  59. irina says: November 5, 20105:51 am

    great color combo, so autumny!

  60. Kym says: November 5, 20106:49 am

    Hi Keiko!

    I love this shirt! I am buying one from Threadless (in the "summer's passing" design), but I am unsure what size to get. Would you be so kind as to tell me what size you are wearing? It looks great on you!

    Thank you!

    Much love.

  61. Keiko Lynn says: November 5, 20108:25 am

    Hey Kym! I'm wearing a medium in this design:)

  63. Lacee Swan says: November 5, 201012:48 pm

    so autumny and brooklyn-love it!

  64. Amy says: November 5, 20101:45 pm

    I'm in love with this look – especially the skirt, and the socks/tights are one of my favorite colors for fall. I want a new plaid skirt so badly now – everyone is rocking them at all sorts of lengths! I just saw that wolf tee on Threadless today πŸ™‚ Oh, and I don't think you're gross.

  65. FASHION ICE says: November 5, 20102:50 pm

    love the sock and shoes, great colors for fall! and i love further seems forever!

  66. Charlie, Feminine Bravery says: November 5, 20103:20 pm

    this is a beautifully artistic outfit I think! you look great, and who cares if you used that shirt three days in a row, if it looks and smells good that's just fine. and I can tell it looks good. don't know about the smell though from here, haha!

  67. Lindsay says: November 5, 20106:33 pm

    I can't seem to find this shirt and as I am in love with Wolves–a very hard pattern to find–and blog under the name Wolves in Lace, I was wondering if they were still selling this shirt? Maybe I just don't see it?

    Any help would be much appreciated!



  68. Lindsay says: November 5, 20106:45 pm

    Never mind! I found it, finally!

  69. Iris says: November 5, 20107:45 pm

    This outfit is so cute, unwashed t-shirt or not!

  70. Katie says: November 5, 201010:40 pm

    Love this top… it has that perfect vintage look & looks so comfy and warm. I don't blame you for wearing it that much!

  71. Kym says: November 6, 20108:26 am


    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question! I love your blog and admire you so.

    This is one of my favorite outfit posts out of all of the blogs that I read. It's just different and cute. I love how you merchandise the colored tights. You make them look stylish and not tacky. Love it!!

  75. Stefany says: November 16, 20109:36 pm

    I love how you put all of these things together. The outfit is fantastic.
