Mod Monday

Chicago vintage

Beth Nelson outfit

The goods:
• vintage black dress from Lolli by Reincarnation NY
• Coach boots
• Black jacket from Urban Outfitters
• gold hoop earrings from H&M
• gold bangle by In God We Trust, gold & rhinestone bangle from Banana Republic
• gold and rhinestone cocktail ring from Vintage Underground

With this Indian Summer week ahead, I took the opportunity to sport bare legs while I could. I found these fantastic Coach boots at Nordstrom Rack years ago and love the slouchy tan suede. (I noticed that Vince Camuto has a similar pair available this fall — though it's hard to tell they slouch in the product photo, they do in the ad campaign.)

I always feel a little 1960s in these boots, especially when paired with a short skirt. This outfit pulls a teeny bit of inspiration from Jane Birkin and her super easy and cool 60s style. She looked great and effortless even in a pair of jeans and tight T.

A fun fact — notice her straw bag she carries? The CEO of Hermès did too and in 1984, created a leather weekend bag for her to carry. Enter - the iconic "Birkin" bag!
