She is stunning. I love the playing with layers – perfect for fall. There is a simplicity about her that allows chic to overflow.
October 17, 2011 at 9:43 am
This is in Paris, “mon cher”, good shot anyway
October 17, 2011 at 9:56 am
That is an interesting look. I see it done often with leather coats, but this is different.That jacket is super to start with. And the layers are all nice and well fitted. And that clutch is great. Plus I love clogs and the thick belt. I wonder if that clutch was always a clutch or if she made it that way.

Gorgeous hair and bag…and I’m always a sucker for elbow patches :)
October 17, 2011 at 10:04 am
Extremely stylish & You are a genius with the Camera..
It just dawned on me that it really helps if you are beautiful.
Imagine that . . .

I like the short of long proportion and the mix of plaids. In fact, I like everything about this outfit except the shoes. Would love to see it either with some great heels or taking the menswear look all the way with some loafers.
October 17, 2011 at 10:10 am
Totally charmed by the insouicance of the jacket, clogs, cuffed pants, clutch. It’s not grunge, in Seattle is never chic, just a mess.
October 17, 2011 at 10:19 am
the elbow patches are at the precise correct positions!
October 17, 2011 at 10:24 am
Love the colors of fall, and love her hair, is a natural long hair!!!
I love the plaid on plaid.
October 17, 2011 at 10:26 am
I love this relaxed look, a very retro-cowboy-chic if i could say…

Her jacket is the best item -no standard brownish tweed jacket with elbow patches that so many are wearing in autumn.
October 17, 2011 at 10:29 am
i love when people can pull off layers such as this. probably best for a very thing to lanky body. especially when the prints aren’t that feminine.
October 17, 2011 at 10:32 am
I love fall in the city!
love the idea… fantastic to have you back in the city…
October 17, 2011 at 10:34 am
I like to play with different lenghts in my outfit to create shape or to create a slender appearance. I love the patches on the sleeve. I updated a couple of my old winter sweaters by patches for the sleeves.
October 17, 2011 at 10:39 am
CLOGS. Shall I finally be in style with my clogs? hehe
October 17, 2011 at 10:43 am
The lady looks great. She has a slight look of Audrey Tautou which is never a bad thing
October 17, 2011 at 10:51 am
Nice mix of the checked shirt and coat, but not really in to the shoes…
Beautiful…Makes me miss Paris…”Style”
October 17, 2011 at 10:55 am
She has awesome hair!
Love the look-
October 17, 2011 at 11:07 am
You’re right: it’s a funny proportion, and this girl is really cute!
October 17, 2011 at 11:12 am
like it! simple and very cool!

Big supporter of the plaid on plaid look. You’re gorgeous!
October 17, 2011 at 11:38 am
what a great blend of patterns. love a good elbow patch too
October 17, 2011 at 11:39 am
I love the back the best. The colours marry so well, especially with the elbow patches
October 17, 2011 at 11:52 am
Those plaids are great and I love the basic clogs for fall!
October 17, 2011 at 11:56 am
I agree, funny in a good way! Love those shoes together with this outfit, just a really great look really!

Waouh this is brilliant! I can’t wait to see the male version! J’adore.
October 17, 2011 at 12:16 pm
who is she? she looks vaguely familiar.
Beautiful blazer and gorgeous hair…. not too sure about the clogs, but she really owns it and that is what personal style is about. Isn’t it?
October 17, 2011 at 12:25 pm
Oh, thank God we can do this now! (I am always tempted to try short over long, and it feels….well, yes, funny!)
October 17, 2011 at 12:27 pm
what an amazing look!
October 17, 2011 at 12:30 pm
Forget the outfit. Look at that HAIR! Thick and gorgeous!!
yeah, she’s casual but at the same time very interesting … I love these two shots!
October 17, 2011 at 12:32 pm
very interesting outfit.
She looks so damn cool in this outfit, clogs and all, somehow it all just clicks and works on her.
October 17, 2011 at 12:38 pm
love the mixture of lengths and patterns!
October 17, 2011 at 12:59 pm
It’s the close-but-still-relaxed-fit and the color combination that really gets me. What a lovely look!
October 17, 2011 at 1:08 pm
I love that jacket!
October 17, 2011 at 1:13 pm
Hi, great shot. What f/stop and shutter speed did you use to take this shot? I like how she and the pole to her right are in crisp focus and (emphasis italics) the foreground and background are blurred out.
October 17, 2011 at 1:29 pm
Perfect not just the varying lengths but the play of the checks, the clutch the unbuttoning of the shirt – and more than anything it suits her – she looks like she belongs in her clothes x
October 17, 2011 at 1:54 pm
great outfit, autumn is the best!
one can loose the socks but use long sleeves… and get in a blue mood
October 17, 2011 at 2:03 pm
Love this! Love the layers and love the plaid on plaid! http://www.casualglamorous.com
October 17, 2011 at 2:05 pm
I love this! I think it’s a stunning look, I love not only the layering of odd proportions, but the different plaids, the cuffed pants, the easy clogs and the luscious clutch, it’s just all so good! Pinning it now.
October 17, 2011 at 2:17 pm
She would look soooo nice in a page, ending by the jawline. I mean she has gorgeous hair, but the face is even nicer, don’t hide it!

October 17, 2011 at 2:41 pm
I agree she looks like Audrey and I love the idea also and will attempt it later this week…

October 17, 2011 at 3:25 pm
Thought that this was one of the best looks in a long time till I scrolled down and saw her rolls and clogs.
It makes the look too bumpkin-ish. This is Paris. One must be able to keep up with the vibrancy of the city (especially a young beauty such as her). The rolls and clogs just throw off the balance a little too much to make this complete.
Her top half, like I said, is stunning. The clogs and rolls just got to go.
October 17, 2011 at 3:34 pm
This is incredible! Her whole look is spot on! I am living in Paris right now and this is really inspirational. Everyone (mostly) here looks great, but a lot of it is very similar. I love the creativity with classic pieces.
October 17, 2011 at 3:37 pm
I wear long under short alot. That is all.
This outfit seems so mis-matched, but perfectly put together at the same time!
October 17, 2011 at 3:39 pm
nothing to say about this look excpet is mixed with high nonsense of style
October 17, 2011 at 3:44 pm
Fall it’s one of the best seasons for fashion and one of the most creatives :)
October 17, 2011 at 3:45 pm
effortlessy chic! great shot!
October 17, 2011 at 3:50 pm
October 17, 2011 at 4:15 pm
For fall and winter I love the concept of short over long, but not really this specific outfit.
Great hair though !

Everything about her outfit is right: the mismatched plaid, plus the rolled up trousers, plus the shades of caramel and oh how I love those swedish clogs.
October 17, 2011 at 4:38 pm
Great Look! and its prefect the double square printed outfit! it looks great the Blazer is so heritage!
Such interesting proportions! She pulls it off really well, although this look is rather unusual. These photos make me smile, cute girl.

Why would u follow this trend….. it shouldn’t even be a trend
October 17, 2011 at 8:15 pm
Love the outfit – and I have some clogs like those! – I’m getting them out again!
October 17, 2011 at 8:24 pm
I like everything about this look except for the clogs. I’m not a fan of the clog trend – I think they look frumpy.
October 17, 2011 at 9:02 pm
Sorry, can’t do it…looks like she rolled out of bed and threw on whatever was close at hand…
October 17, 2011 at 9:03 pm
I love this too! Why? I’m not sure. Bohemian, carefree….care-less? I bought a longer mid-thigh black top this summer which I plan to wear under a black hip length jacket this fall. Last week I wore a white silk Equipment shirt over jeans, buttoned up at the neck, then put the hip length black jacket over it. The shirt hem hung below the jacket by 6 – 8 ” . I wore it to meet a new potential client – and got the job! I guess it looked cool enough. :-) I think Armani did this some time ago. It also seems very Japanese. Also, hides imperfections!
October 17, 2011 at 10:01 pm
I think what makes this look work is that there is a Predominant, Subordinate, and Accent pattern/color in this photo. The predominant is the plaid shirt, followed by the subordinate plaid blazer, and the accent is the jeans. The three colors brown, gold and navy tie everything together.
October 17, 2011 at 10:48 pm
That is absolutely one of thee best jackets I have ever seen,
and happily, I have one very similar to it, however, mine doesn’t have the trendy elbow pads.
And though I do like the articles of clothes she is sporting, I’d prefer them separate than tied together.
I remain unconvinced at the moment Scott.
October 17, 2011 at 11:05 pm
fantastic silhouette, love the clash of patterns!
October 18, 2011 at 1:01 am
Compared to the man’s version, this one is too sloppy.
October 18, 2011 at 1:31 am
I love the top half of this outfit: the long plaid shirt over the shorter plaid jacket. HOWEVER, I hate the bottom half: the jeans are unfitted and baggy plus they’re rolled the wrong way. Not to mention the kind of dutchy clogs: not pretty at all.
It’a shame because with so much promise on the top it could have been a phenomenal outfit.
October 18, 2011 at 3:52 am
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for posting two shots. It is wonderful to see the total picture. So often, we forget that people see us both coming and going. I would love to see more photos of your subjects like this.
The life after
October 18, 2011 at 3:57 am
I don’t like it! I usually like short on long but in this case they’re both too wide and she just seems messy and shabby.
October 18, 2011 at 4:24 am
Plaid and layers (and beautiful hair!) : a good combination!
October 18, 2011 at 4:46 am
She’s a stunner! I’m so loving her tartan blazer. And her delightful hair!
October 18, 2011 at 5:54 am
Perfect outfit ruined by the shoes :(
Liz + Helena? Wonder Woman even
October 18, 2011 at 6:16 am
Certainly and strictly non-corporate here.
She seems to be channelling a bit of Liz Hurley and Helena Bonham-Carter.
You figure? Perhaps with more than a touch of Lynda Carter a la Wonder Woman circa 1975-1979?
This lady doesn’t aim to please anyone but herself. Which is super, really.

I love plaid.. such a great fall look!
October 18, 2011 at 8:24 am
My fav colors this year navy and camel. Such a nice composition! Even the shoes look classy. The thing with matching long with short is alright as long as it doesn’t corrupt the whole silhouette, which I think the blouse does a bit in this coordinate.

Fall fashion, is definitely my favorite. Everyone has a unique style when it comes to staying fashionable AND warm.
And I’ve really noticed that elbow patches are very popular this year. Do you have any idea why??
October 18, 2011 at 9:10 am
The elbow patches for some reason add so much
October 18, 2011 at 9:44 am
No a Fan of plaid but somehow she made it work
October 18, 2011 at 10:47 am
This type of layering is not so much my piece of cake but I like the colour combination and the taupe accessoires very much.
Kisses from Greece!

I find “Short Over Long” very interesting, and it’s something I do as well – even if maybe short is longer and long a little shorter… :)
October 18, 2011 at 1:02 pm
I love her. No really. She looks extremely good.
October 18, 2011 at 1:36 pm
Interesting. Middle Eastern tribal. Love the texture.

Hey I’ve been doing this for a very long time…
It really adds an element of interest to what at times can look like an average day…
October 18, 2011 at 11:55 pm
She looks incredibly sloppy.. starting with the hair and ending with the awful shoes. Too much pattern fighting for attention.
October 19, 2011 at 10:57 am
Oh, I love that jacktet. so envyy ;-)
October 19, 2011 at 4:12 pm
This is fantastic! Much to try here. And ahh yes–the ever gorgeous basic clogs–can never go wrong with them.
October 19, 2011 at 6:49 pm
i agree with you it is funny in a good way
October 20, 2011 at 12:55 am
Aah, Paris (whistfull sigh): always wonderfully captured on your camera. I love her look.
Personally, I can’t wait for you to publish another book. The first one is great and I still look through it occasionally: it’s a keeper. A new book including your favourite places to visit and stroll around (shops, cafes, streets, fashion, cities, and other destinations) would be fabulous for us armchair/desktop travellers, watching for inspiration.
Thanks again. Linda B. ciao. x x

The utter lack of fussiness and pretense makes this look wicked cool and appealing. I love the jacket & the way the shirt looks kind of like a ghawazee coat. And that hair…
October 27, 2011 at 10:37 am
Love it – a woman who loves layers, plaid and clogs too! Great look and beautiful…
November 2, 2011 at 9:36 am
These proportions remind me of my recent trip to India. The younger ladies wear a salwar kameez, and when they immigrate to America, they keep that style and just throw a jacket over their outfit when it gets cold.
January 28, 2012 at 2:20 pm
I love this layered look – chic yet relaxed and perfect for the changeable UK weather too !!
June 17, 2012 at 2:41 pm
She is so cool. I want meet her. hahaha

Wow, it could be a look in the current Dries Van Noten collection, but this photo is from two years ago.
