The downtown/hobo chic look


Juls, what do you think of this hobo chic, Olsen twins look that is popular right now? I'm sort of into elements of it as it is overall casual yet still interesting. If it starts to look too sloppy however I don't like it. I put together the above enssamble that I think I could wear. I have recently realized that some of my favorite clothing is tailored and dressy making it more suited for a day at the office and less appropriate for a day at home chasing a toddler and cleaning up messes. What are your thoughts on this casual downtown LA look that is going on?

Hi Mer, you look so cool and Jcrew on your blog! I love it. Yeah, I am with you on the Olsen twins, sometimes they look awful, awful, awful and others they look effortlessly cool. I love the dark skinny jeans on the one on the left.

Please ignore last comment.
So, I have this very outfit, minus the earings bag and shoes. I've had to adopt a new style since having two kiddies. I have to be able to go from working in the garden to picking up Liam at school and errands. My hair is looser and messier and I wear less makeup. I guess I would say that I have nor adopted the hobo chic look but rather the street chic look. Twin on the left looks more street chic to me. I also have had a grand urge to recapture my rebelious youth and not look the part of a mommy anymore. Must I dress like a grown up?
