What's Going On in My Wardrobe

For those of you who have been wondering how I'm dressing these days, I offer up the following snapshots, taken from my Instagram account:












I will get back to posting my Wardrobe Diaries, when I don't have so many other beautiful things to discuss!

But if you want to follow me on Instagram, I post about 3 or 4 times a week about what I'm wearing, or other nifty and beautiful things I see.

You can follow me hereby clicking on the little tiny navy and grey camera up in the top right corner, above my photograph, and the Google search bar. I'd love to see you there!

love,
Janice

  2. Love the juxtaposition of texture and pattern in your wardrobe. Makes me rethink some combo's in mine. Thx.

  3. I have been so sparse in my comments lately because I am up and gone very early these days. But I do want to take the time today and comment on your beautiful, elegant, but very wearable wardrobe. I have never been to Instagram, but might give it a go this weekend.

  5. Lovely! I have forgotten how different the weather is in the north / north-east. No collars, sweaters, or scarves in Austin TX since May :)

    1. How about since February in Tucson AZ? The ideas are always useful, but more for a very formal urban lifestyle in a mostly cold climate.

  6. Thank you for letting us into your closet with a different twist. Your usual posts about what you wore are very helpful but your photos are so good. They capture your subtle plays on design, texture and colour and remind us of the difference between ok and beautiful.

  8. WOW, Janice, you must be the best dressed lady in Chicago! So beautiful. I'm going to copy several of these for Washington, DC. Lovely combinations of scarves and tops especially. Thanks so much.. just found your instagram. Will check that also every day now!

  9. I always wondered how you kept your wardrobe interesting with such little color- I had no idea you had such lovely TEXTURES! Something to keep in mind for sure.

  10. Totally inspired by the gorgeous neutrals and yes, textures, as Meli22 points out! Also love how you put the mariniere together with other patterns. -- Sisty

  11. Texture was the first thing I noticed in your beautiful photographs. An 'a-ha' moment - that is what I'm missing in my own wardrobe!

  12. So pretty and elegant! Sources please :)

  13. Love the peek inside your wardrobe! Beautiful choices and beautiful photos. It would be really helpful to see them on you!

  14. Exquisite photos, Janice, thank you for sharing them here. As others have said, they capture beautifully your thoughtful approach to texture, pattern, colour, elegance, and wearability. And your individuality! More inspiration for u. Robyn xxx

  15. You can dress me any time you want to come to River Forest.

  16. When I saw that bright magenta jacket in the midst of all of the gray, I immediately thought, "one of these things is not like the others." It's nice to see some of your "wilder" colors :-) I am absolutely coveting that lovely gray sweater, though I'd probably be afraid to wear it and have it get snagged. These photos are lovely. I like how they show the detail of the outfit rather than the whole thing. I've now signed up for Instagram and am following you.

    1. That cardigan is really more a deep wine red - I love red but wear it only seldom!
      thanks for following me - it keeps me from feeling like I"m wandering in the digital wilderness all alone.
      warmest regards,
      Janice

  17. I agree with the other person who mentioned we need sources! Especially for that chain linky necklace in the 8th picture. Thanks for this post!

  18. Nice...would like to know brands and sources as well. I have some EF pieces but they are often not shaped enough for me. I especially appreciate you sharing the patterned scarves with the patterned tops. I have no idea about Instagram and can't find it here, but I'll figure it out...would like to follow you. Thanks for your blog....love it!

  19. Janice, thank you for this post. It takes my learning-from-Vivienne (of course I mean you, Janice) to a new stage. Though I'm a social media curmudgeon, I do have an Instagram account, and now I have a reason to actually look at it!

    Your real life examples provide a more focused way of going to my closet to compare, experiment and learn.

    It doesn't matter that your climate and surroundings are different from mine. Your aesthetic and your skill in expressing it are why I follow you, and my wardrobe is consistently improving and becoming more focused because of it, even if I do need to look for the larger principles in your examples sometimes and imagine some translations from your world and your preferences to mine.

    In the end, if I fell into your world from mine, I would be happy to have also fallen into your wardrobe. Your generosity in sharing what you know and what you are learning, and your passion for teaching it to others, is inspiring.
