So I finally broke down and bought a pair of jeans from the A.P.C. Butler program. I’ve tried buying faux-aged, faux-washed, faux-faded, faux-whiskered(?) jeans in the past, but they never seem right. I’d rather wear jeans that someone else broke-in (hopefully not commando style) than a manufactured version.
This has to be one of the cutest, most sincere books on personal style I’ve ever seen.

This summer I had taken some time to stay home and look for style in my own backyard. After the images from Morocco last week, I thought that this week would be a great way to continue the concept of “style in simple living” with these images from a farm in rural Pennsylvania. When I visited, the whole family was spending the weekend making jams and jellies with berries grown on their farm. This was being done in a beautiful Victorian style house with no electricity (by choice). The mother hand-makes most of the clothes her daughters wear. Whatever these young ladies lack in current fashion they more than makeup for in homegrown style.
