Private Eye


It's been a long time since I've worn my trench coat with its belt, and when I reunited the pair I have to say that the look made me feel like one of those stereotypical private eye detective types - not a bad way to feel, I think. Also, private eye is a pretty strange phrase. I mean, I know it's supposed to imply that you're hired to eye actions that are meant to be private, but I kind of like the idea of having a private eye, like an eye that no one else can see and that you keep hidden for your own personal use. I'm rambling, but it's mostly because I'm very tired and it's now "the weekend," but also because I'm in writing mode and am in the mood to look too closely at words. But yeah, I felt like a private eye in this outfit, and I can see this red skirt being a fun autumn and winter piece (definitely for CHRISTMAS!) as long as I can figure out how to style it.

Skirt, shoes: Urban Outfitters, Blouse: Forever 21, Trench: H&M, Bow: Bethany, Beautifully Regular






Until tomorrow,


  1. I love everything about this outfit! That skirt is FAB as is your new haircut (pretty sure this is the second or third time I've commented about it, lol)

    Ps - How do you manage to take so many style photos a week? I'm lucky if I get 2 or 3!

  2. This is such a fab and chic outfit!! I love the colors mixed together. Love it:)

  3. this is so great. i LOVE that skirt (in fact, i tried on one just like it last time i was at h&m but it look absolutely atrocious on me--looks infinitly more marvelous on you, my dear!) your haircut is also totally adorable :)

  4. That trench coat is darling. H&M you said?

  5. girl, you are the cutest. private eye makes me think of whispering eye. from role models.

  6. Love it! I'm in the market for a trench, and you make me want one even more!

  7. Hi adorable, when you gonna mail me that skirt? Hehe. I love this look and I see nothing wrong with being an old timey detective!

  8. Nicole! You've been mixing colors so wonderfully lately! I am so stealing them once it feels like Fall around here! Love this whole outfit! Your hair is adorable and it makes me want to start wearing bows in my hair again! :)

  9. Ah! Your outfits lately have been incredible! Sorry I have been bad about commenting. Being back at school is no fun. This reminds me of how I was going to be Sherklock Holmes for Halloween but my trench doesn't fit anymore. I couldn't find an appropriate substitute in my price range! Love the brown and red together here!

  10. Wow I love the color combination here. Looks absolutely fab :)
