"When in Doubt, Leave it Off."

[Amber on Madison Ave in her Ralph Lauren Sandals]
I met Amber near Madison Ave, and asked if I could take her photo. She was dressed perfectly for a hot summer's day, and I knew she would have some great style advice. Amber told me that she follows her mother's old saying," When in doubt, leave it off." Amber thinks about comfort first, because, "You won't feel stylish if you aren't comfortable." This is sound advice from a stylish lady!

Comfort is the first thought when I will buy something!

I've heard the leave it off sentiment elsewhere. Wonder if she knew Coco. Anyway she does have all she needs to look terrific.

Lauren said...

Excellent advice - I couldn't agree more. And, love her outfit, which would be perfect at any age.

Amber looks amazing. I'm of the 'less is more' and 'comfort first' persuasion too.

A woman with a great taste - lovely. I'm curious. When did you get this brilliant idea to shoot great-looking, older people? I discovered your blog last winter ...

Aside from the fact that she looks like she could chew nails, I'd love to look like her any day!

Amber looks so tall, refined and definitely elegant. I am beginning to think I would kill for a waist like hers! Am wondering if she gives lessons in that "been there, done that, test me" gaze -- I could put it to good use. By the way, I find Amber is perfectly accessorized, statement-sized but classic pearl earrings, understated but readable watch, classic gold wedding band. Perfect.
