So, there’s no one more qualified to pen N'East Style — her blog that focuses on the clothing and culture of the Northeast.

Being raised in New England, it’s hard not to be ‘classic’ in a lot of ways. Sometimes it gets translated as being ‘preppy’, but for me it’s more about sticking to what works. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

STYLE TIP

It’s really hard to find a nice pair of leather sandals that you
can dress up or down. The Sperry tan leather ones were
lightweight and comfortable and looked great with skinny
jeans or a dress.

The Authentic Original 2-Eye Woven Boat shoe in navy leather is my favorite. It’s classic but
a little unexpected with the woven texture and rich navy leather.

STYLE TIP

I like pairing tailored pieces with something a little loved or
broken in. Works very well for Spring when you’re taking it a little
easy but want to look polished.

INSPIRATION

I really like the youthfulness of the Canvas Bahama. It’s
a great shoe to pair with shorts and a tee for a more laid
back look in the city or on the beach.

STYLE TIP

The Cloud Logo Ombre styles are a little more edgy than the
traditional Sperry. They are fun, light — perfect for hot days at
the beach.

Christine matches a great shoe with shorts and a tee for a laid back look.

Being born in England and raised in New England, I have a fondness for history and the classics. Because of that I'm not very fast moving or trend-driven, but I like to think that keeps me more grounded than most my age.
