Sometimes in order to look effortless you’ve got to put as little effort as possible into the outfit. Go figure. Once again, I found myself with only 5 minutes to get dressed so I pulled out my trusty UZI hoodie, jeggings, cozy socks, and flashy boots, put my hair in a top knot and I’m out!
WHAT I’M WEARING
Fancy hoodie by UZI NYC
Jeggings by Gap
Socks by Gold Toe
Shoes by Jeffery Campbell from Solestruck
Brooklyn Bridge cuff by betsy & iya
Cathedral Park hoops by betsy & iya
When trying to figure out what to wear always remember that a balanced silhouette–for example, loose top with fitted bottoms, or visa versa– is a solid bet for best dressed.

If you haven’t checked out our Voyage collection already (do it now!), I’ll let you know that there are three color palettes representing three areas around the world that Betsy has spent time in and held dear to her heart: Scandinavia, Mexico, and Portland. A few days ago Lacey walked into the shop completely emanating the Portland color scheme without even realizing it!
This is what happens when you work at betsy & iya, you turn into the product. But that doesn’t sound like such a bad thing… to turn into something beautiful, striking, and full of love & energy? That sounds pretty good to me, especially in the Portland grayscale–to be a part of something that represents a city like this sounds pretty great, even with all the rain.
