Midi Skirt With Belt

Midi Skirt With Belt

I've seen this photo floating around the interwebs for years and it really has held up as a classic and feminine outfit inspiration! When it comes to keeping your outfit looking timeless one of the MAIN things you can do is to stick to neutral colors and simple silhouettes.  In this outfit a muted green (this shade of green is...

Farmer's Market Outfits

Farmer's Market Outfits

I love farmer's markets, don't you? I would assume you would if you're an AV Girl! It's so much fun seeing all the different stalls and local farms bring in their goods. I love all the flowers, the pastries, and most of all...I LOVE people watching!  I never just schlep myself to a farmer's market. It's a treat to go...

Feminine Style: Navy Midi Dress

Feminine Style: Navy Midi Dress

I love a good classic midi dress, especially if it's navy blue. It so happens that most of the navy blue midi dresses in my own closet are vintage...have you ever thought about the term midi dress? That's a relatively new term I think. Like women in the 40s were not shopping for midi dresses...all their dresses were just that...

French Girl Style: White Blouse

French Girl Style: White Blouse

Why are white blouses eponymous with French girl style? I think a classic and feminine white blouse is a must for every French girl's wardrobe. Like there's probably a checklist somewhere that I really need to get a hold of! If I find it I will GLADLY share with you.  So something I have noticed with the "French Girl White...

Penelope Cruz in Captain Corelli's Mandolin

I remember coming across this photo of Penelope Cruz on instagram maybe or Pinterest... I don't know which, but thinking "WHAT MOVIE IS THIS?!" Well it turns outs is Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001) and it's set in the 1940s, in Italy...and I'm basically just drooling over all her outfits! They're feminine and pretty but a little folky...which I LOVE. Also...

Picnic Outfit Idea

Picnic Outfit Idea

I love picnics! Who doesn't love dining en plein air on a beautiful warm day with a slight breeze under a canopy of trees or perhaps right next to a river... picnics are one of life's simple pleasures (simple picnic if you're like me and would happily call a baguette, a slice of brie, and some summer fruits a picnic...) This...

Classically Feminine With A Blouse and Skirt

Classically Feminine With A Blouse and Skirt

A feminine white blouse and a fitted a-line skirt will never go out of style when paired together. This is one of my go-to uniforms for outfits and I have a fair stock of a-line below the knee length skirts that I pair with an assortment of white cotton blouses.  These images are from a Japanese movie from 1957 called...

Liv Tyler's Floral Dress in Stealing Beauty

Liv Tyler's Floral Dress in Stealing Beauty

First off, I have a major girl crush on Liv Tyler. A huge part of that is because she played Arwen... but also I follow her on Instagram and she just seems super sweet and kind...like her insides match how beautiful she is on the outside. I know you'll never see this Liv Tyler, but I adore you so much....
