NDM Style : Stripes + Bling

Jan 30, 2014

One of my favorite things about other people’s blogs is seeing how they style their outfits.  I love outfit posts and seeing how people mix and match things from their own closet.   I also like seeing how clothes look and fit on real people.   My goal for my blog this new year is to do more of that and showcase my outfits not just with selfies.  I want to start a new series called NDM Style where I feature an outfit I have worn recently.  I may not do this every week but hope to at least every other week.

 I had to get Matt on board to be my photographer- although my next door neighbor is a legit photographer who I need to get to help me because he probably won’t huff and puff and say are we done yet like the hubs??   But Matt obliged me and did a pretty good job doing some fashion photos- lawyer by day blog photographer by night might be his new calling. 

This is one of my go-to outfits. You know I rave about Vince all the time,  it is honestly one of my top five favorite lines.  The shirts, blouses, and sweaters are always a perfect loose casual fit.  This sweater is no exception and lucky for you girls it is on sale right now almost 50% off.  I always love stripes,  they are so classic.  I plan to wear this sweater into the spring paired with white jeans or jean shorts.  I am wearing a size small.  Vince runs true to size or on the larger side sometimes.

also available in v-neck version or white + black stripes 

 It is so soft and such a great fit.   Had to snap one selfie to give you an idea of length.

I am wearing the Rag and Bone Newbury Booties in gray and love them!  I also have them in dark brown and black. They seriously are my most favorite booties and comfortable too.  I can wear them all day with no pain!

They run pretty true to size.  I am usually a 9 or 9.5 and have a size 9.5.  So order a half size up if you aren’t sure because you need to allow room for socks.

The jeans are the 7 for All Mankind “The Skinny”.  They have been my go-to post pregnancy jeans.  They sit higher up and suck everything plus they have stretch to them.  They are on sale right now and I am so considering buying another pair.  I have had mine since before Sterling was born so it may be time for a new pair.  and they do not come with a hole in them.  I took a tumble a few years ago at a Bachelorette party where I may have been over served and ripped the jeans but I just keep rocking them:)

 I added my favorite Loren Hope necklace to give the outfit some jazz.  It goes with everything.  I toss it on for day to day wear and for night time too.  Her jewelry is so well made, always a great choice.

Before I headed out I threw on my Vince Leather Jacket to complete the look.  The jacket is totally an investment piece but worth every penny.  It is hands down my favorite jacket.  I wear it daily even over workout clothes.

Currently it is onsale in the olive color.

  5. Love it! You look so fab. Love those booties, too. But I have no clue what NDM stands for. I googled it, and I assume it doesn't mean 'network data mover' or 'non-dairy milk.'

  6. Sara Mueller says:

    Love the boots! And you look fabulous as always!

  12. Danielle says:

    Love this post! Do the Skinny Jeans run true to size, or do you recommend ordering a size down since they stretch?


  13. Great idea! I'd love to see more of your style! Love that Vince top and necklace!!

  14. Jackie says:

    You look great! Love your style and look forward to more of these posts!

  15. They do huff and puff about pictures right? Maybe because I always say "wait one more I look weird in this one". Love those booties! Also the rug in selfie photo! Such a pretty pop of color šŸ™‚

  16. Natalie, I know you also mentioned in the past your love for Rag n bone skinny jeans. Thinking of ordering a pair, can you advise on the style and color you recommend? True to size? This Mama rarely makes it to the mall these days so I am blindly ordering online.

    LOVE this post! I like to see what you are wearing and where I can shop the look. I have the 7 jeans and love them. I would love to add that blouse to my collection. Wish I could wear the booties. I cant wear heels because of my back problems. Banana Republic had a pair that looked just like the R&B pair this winter. Also, I made your meatballs last night and they were fabulous! I am seriously considering making them again this weekend. You look beautiful, as always šŸ˜‰

  22. perfect day to day outfit. vince makes the best basics!

  23. You are so cute! Love this series. Can't wait to see more NDM styles. That Loren Hope necklace is a beauty. Love the R and B booties and Vince leather jacket, too. Great, classic pieces, even if they are an investment you will still be wearing them in years to come. xox

  24. I love love love this outfit. Stripes are my love language šŸ™‚ Especially blue and white ones.
