Warm and Sleek

After a few weeks of unseasonably warm weather, Chicago is back to being chilly.  I won't go so far as to say that all is now right with the world, but this does feel a bit more normal.  There was something just weird about crash landing into July when it is, in fact, March.  In the meantime, until it warms up again, I want to look like these ladies: tailored and sleek, but not at all stuffy.

(I have a soft spot in my heart for this girl: they titled her photo "Mommy Long Legs."  Meanies!)

This last photo is of Claiborne Swanson Frank, a Vogue Contributing Photographer (obviously a far less glamorous job than being a lawyer).  This was the first photo in her Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl feature on, which features a different Vogue staff member and what she wears each day of the work week.  It's fascinating to see what these girls wear to work!  I highly recommend checking out the archive.

Ms. Swanson Frank has a new book, American Beauty, which appears to be full of gorgeous pictures of American women doing quintessentially American things like posing on vintage cars, in gardens, and at home with their dogs (take a peek inside herehere and here).  I jest because the book really does look beautiful and would be a lovely addition to any coffee table (yours or a friend's -- this would make a really nice gift).
