With A Little Help From My Friends

It’s good to have reliable friends, not only the human and furry kinds, but also the ones hanging in our closets. These are some of my wardrobe BFF’s that can always be counted on in a pinch: a longer jacket, a white tee with a little something extra, slim black pants and a pair of comfortable boots.
Everyone’s feline friend Lars, presenting his magnificent belly for a rub.

This jacket is a few years old now, but still a favorite. I never get tired of simple black and white ensembles.

More breezy hair styling.

This linen tee has a wonderful metallic shimmer that wasn’t really showing up in the pictures (you can see better here) but adds a little something extra to an otherwise very simple outfit.

Earrings: kate spade, no longer available. Similar.
Jacket: Eileen Fisher from 2010. Similar shape.
Tee: Eileen Fisher, here.
Pants: Eileen Fisher ponte knit jeans (LOVE these!!!) here.
Boots: Arche, here.
Watch: Michael Kors, here.
Bracelets: Stella and Dot, here and here.

  1. I live in jeans, though I do like a decent pair of black pants too. I wore a pair of Gap black cropped Capris with a silk blouse to a party at the weekend. Your hair looks fab, I like the new colour.

  2. I love the pictures of you and Lars! What a great cat, I always love coming across one of those friendly sidewalk kitties. It’s funny how they are like the mayor of whatever street they live on, and it looks like Lars is the mayor of your block!

    And you look fabulous, btw! XO, Jill

  3. Gorgeous and elegant in simplicity. Also, where do I sign up for the Lars’ Magnificent Belly Fan Club??? Love it!!!

  4. The best friends in my wardrobe range from zip up knit slacks from the Worth Collection to Eileen Fisher pieces is viscose jersey. Almost everything in my wardrobe is a solid color—black, brown, olive, navy, a lighter blue, with the prints showing up in scarves-both high and low.

    Like everyone else, I think you look great (and happy). Have a wonderful trip.

  5. This is a beautiful outfit and I would have a jacket like that in my closet for years as well…YOU are looking more and more beautiful with each picture…your hair and your complexion are glowing! Maybe it is the anticipation of a trip overseas!! You look awesome!

  6. Before I tell you how brilliant the black and white looks, I must say your photo location is beautiful. Is that your street? Also, love me some fat cat! Have a good week, Femme, and happy trip packing.

  7. You look fabulous ( and the feline friend too!)….. Thanks for giving us all the information as well – loving those boots. S x

  8. Simple is beautiful.
    The street behind you looks like a dreamland, yet your picture is very sharp. Good work: ).

  9. Love your glasses, Deja! They look wonderful on you.
    My best wardrobe friends are my jeans and tees. They make life easy and comfortable.

  10. I live in jeans and tees when I’m not at work, though I need new ones, as those that I have are in very sad shape …

    I just recently found your blog and I LOVE it! And the fact that you have that sweet kitty in the pictures is just icing on the cake. 🙂

  11. That is a very simple yet elegant look. My best wardrobe friends are a sweater and coloured jeans because I don’t wear black. That jacket is a great length on you.

  12. Wardrobe BFF? Great fitting jeans in a dark wash and black! Your outfit could have come out of my closet – our clothing likes are very similar! Agree with the other posters – your hair and complexion are gorgeous!

  13. You have it nailed….that look just works, basic colours, highlighted with accessories perfect, so chic!! xx

  14. Excellent classics! I guess I could do with some better quality standards if it means I’d look like that. You look fabulous!

  15. I usually like natural fabrics, but those jeans have been highly rated, (and they are 50%off) so I ordered a pair. Nordstrom’s has such a terrific return policy I can’t go wrong….Love your blog…A Fellow Francophile

  16. Oh, your hair! Obviously, I’m behind on th’ blog reading, but that color is magnificent. So is Lars 🙂

    Hmmm, BFFs in closet. Striped tops, comfy skirts, super comfy flats, and flowy sweaters.
