cling to kling

elin klingNO MATTER WHAT Elin Kling is wearing I fall in love with, which is why ever since I spotted the above image of her in these impossible to find Spring ’13 Celine mules, I’ve been searching high and low for my own, more affordable version.  This silhouette continues to trend for Spring ’14 and although reminiscent of the early 90’s, fashion is always repeating itself.  That’s right ladies, mules are back and what from what it looks like, here to stay!  I’m sure I had a similar style in high school, which totally validates my perpetual reasoning for never throwing anything away.  So what if my closet is overflowing with stuff I haven’t worn in twenty years – I will one day again!  This proves it!  Maybe you’ve got an old pair buried in your childhood home, but in case you’ve tossed like me, here are a few current options to consider…

Elin Kling is one of my fashion gods – typically pairing simple pieces together while achieving an effortlessly cool style.  Take the above look for instance.  All she is wearing is a casual knit with deconstructed slim fitting jeans – but the addition of her black pointy toe pumps with super cute hat and bag – voila!  Perfection.  Most of us have this outfit (or a version of it) hanging in our closet already.

The lesson:  you don’t need overly complicated items to create an epic fashion statement and basics are interchangeable for endless outfit options (this is my hint that they are occasionally worth the splurge).  Check it…  *above photo via here
