A Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Cup of Jo editor Stella Blackmon comes into the office looking adorable Every. Single. Day. “Where did you get that shirt/sweater/pants?” we’ll ask. Today, Stella shows us five outfits she wore in a week…

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Sweater: Uniqlo. Pants: Aritzia. Sandals: St. Agni, on sale.

“Overall, my style is very low-key. On Saturday morning cartoons, there’s always a moment when the main character goes to their closet to get dressed, and inside there are only copies of the outfit they always wear. That’s me with sweaters. I have this simple Uniqlo one in navy and gray, and they really are everything. They’re light enough to wear in the summer or to tuck into pants, and they still keep their shape, which doesn’t usually happen. I always get excited by the most mundane details, like a high neckline and half sleeve.”

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Sweater: babaã. Jeans: Agolde. Sneakers: Pumas. Purse: Clare V.

“Growing up, after doing our weekend chores, my brother and I would always avoid my mom if she was wearing her Nikes. It meant two things: She was getting stuff done, and she was doling out extra tasks to anyone that crossed her path. Nowadays, I have my own taking-care-of-business outfit in the form of a sweater, jeans and sneakers combo. I feel like I can do errands in double-time wearing it.”

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

“In my studio apartment, I have room for exactly 15 hangers in my closet, so before bringing something home, I really contemplate whether I can wear it over and over. I saved up for these straight-leg jeans for months, and now I wear them every other day. Having a limit on what I can bring home makes it easier to keep to a budget. To make sure something isn’t an impulse buy, I’ll take a screenshot of it and wait two or three weeks or until my finances can handle it. Often, by the time I revisit the piece, I’ve changed my mind. It helps me stay on track.”

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Dress: Reformation. Denim jacket: Everlane. Sneakers: Pumas.

“I like this dress for dates or with sneakers on the weekend. The sleeve has this miniature puff that is so endearing. If I want to do it up before a night out, I’ll sit on my bathroom sink and play a zillion Katie Jane Hughes makeup tutorials, and then attempt a swipe of red eyeshadow. They are so addicting to watch. She also taught me about this straightening brush, and now it truly takes two minutes to do my hair. It has not saved me any time getting ready, though, because I just watch more Katie Jane Hughes videos!”

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Blouse: Doên. Jeans: Agolde. Heels: Everlane.

“It’s always the movies that get me re-psyched about clothes. Lately, I’ve been on an ’80s-era kick. Call Me By Your Name did a number on me. Did you know the costume designer went door-to-door in the town they filmed to collect vintage photographs of the locals to make sure the fashion felt authentic? All of the characters looked great, but the mom was ICONIC. Then I was recently on the hunt for a denim jacket to look more like Timotheé Chalamet, haha.”

Week of Outfits: Stella Blackmon

Denim jacket: Everlane. Dress: Article&. Sandals: St. Agni, on sale.

“You how people say that kids always remember the times they threw up? I remember every outfit in my life that drove me nuts. Like my blue Mary Janes I had in fourth grade that pinched my heels unless I walked on my toes, or the cargo pants with five rogue zippers. Or the homecoming dress I had to casually hold up the entire night with one hand. What was I thinking? The clothes that let you do you are where it’s at. Now I know.”

Thanks so much, Stella!

P.S. More women share their week of outfits, and Stella’s 175-square-foot apartment.

  1. OH. MY. GOD! Stella Backmon is the prettiest woman I have ever seen. Why can’t we just make her a style icon? Look at her. Jeez, she looks adorable.

  2. Christine says...

    Stella, a month later and I still cannot stop thinking about those sneakers in that color. Gah! Can you advise — yours are unisex sizing? Did you just size down two sizes from your normal size and it was fine? Need. Them.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi Christine! Yes, really love them. I got a size 4 (haha), and I’m normally a 6! Hope this helps! xoxox

    • Christine says...

      A very heartfelt thank you, Stella! You have such lovely style. Ordering them right this second. (Also, lol at size 4! Too funny.)

  3. Heidi says...

    What size did you get in the white Article& dress? I love it and have been checking it out over and over and it’s finally restocked. I have read the other comments so I have a good idea of your stats but I’d love to know what size you got. Thanks! I love love seeing a week of outfits post from on of the Cup of Jo regulars.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi, Heidi! I got a XS and it’s still very loose! Typically wear XS-S! Hope that helps! x

  4. Bridget says...

    So love these post and would love it if you took it to the next step with suggestions for a capsule wardrobe! I was so intrigued to know what Stella hangs on the 15 hangers and what a streamline wardrobe would be like as I’d love to simplify things. Thanks!

  5. This finally convinced me to shop at Everlane. Obsessed!

  6. Audrey says...

    Stella is my new style icon!! So glad she shared these looks.

    Would you ever consider doing a week of outfits with someone who works in a place where they can’t really wear nice things because they’ll get dirty? I’m the co-owner of a design studio, and our space is beautiful, but there’s also a high chance of getting dust or paint on my clothes every day, and I find myself in a total style rut because of it. Athletic shorts/leggings/sweatshirts make me feel like a kid, and my more classic work looks (white jeans with a patterned button-down, Theory dresses, etc.) are no longer good ideas. Thank you for considering!

    • Hey Audrey,
      Oh I feel this.
      I’m also the founder of a design company (aelfie.com) and tend to make a mess and/or break a sweat moving things around.
      I find it really hard to be creative and do my job if i’m dressed too preciously. But I also can feel demotivated if i’m in paint covered pajamas all the time. It’s def hard to strike a balance.
      My weekly strategy is to have one super professional looking day and one day where I look like I rolled out of the garbage can. The days in between are a mix of high/low. I keep an extra T-shirt, scrunchie and pair of sneakers in my office. I also keep jewelry and make-up in case a film crew shows up out of nowhere and wants to feature the studio (that’s a real thing that happened).
      :)

  7. Yajie says...

    I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee your style and outfits. I see the color popping up at the right place, and it just feels so comfortable visually and mentally. I wish I could see more of your lookbook Stella! XOXO. A fan from China.

    PS: I wonder behind all the cute clothing, you must be a great person too :-)

  8. Talor says...

    I’m am ALL OVER that Uniqlo sweater!

  9. meg says...

    Love it. Please feature Lisa Congdon for this!

  10. Anna says...

    I love this series but I’d love to know the heights of all the lovely women featured. As someone who is short, I like to know how tall someone is so I have some sense of where skirts/pants may fall on my legs :)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi Anna! I’m 5’2″, hope that helps :)

  11. CJ says...

    Stella! You nailed the Call Me By Your Name aesthetic. You remind me so much of Esther Garrel who plays the stunning Marzia in the film.

  12. Emma says...

    I love everything about this post!! I love, love, love your style! I do not love wearing jeans because they are always so confining and uncomfortable to me, but maybe it is because I have never invested in a good pair. You have inspired me to save and get myself a lovely pair and I think I am going to save for these adorable high-waisted ones you are sporting so well! Thank you!!

  13. Jackie says...

    Loved that you finally featured a week of Stella’s outfits!! Loved even more that it was a mix of high and low pieces. Don’t get me wrong—I love looking at all the pretty things online and on this blog, but it’s always nice when there are pretty things that are also within reach. Thank you for thinking of those of us who are reaching a little further.

  14. gfy says...

    I can’t find the katiejanehughes video’s? The instagram link is only still shots, no youtube link and nothing on her personal website….where are they? Thanks! PS: Love your hair!

  15. Amanda says...

    I’ve been tempted to buy that hair straightening brush since the last time Stella mentioned it. I clicked on the Amazon link again this time. Usually on an Amazon link the “other users who bought this also viewed” section is similar or related products. I was surprised to see that section for this hair tool included a Melissa and Doug school bus, “Brick,” and a guest check notepad. Then I made the connection and it made me chuckle. This blog is pretty powerful when it influences even Amazon. Also, I love Stella’s hair!

  16. Loribeth says...

    I wanted to drop this here for anyone thinking about the Amika brush: I have fine textured, wavy hair but LOTS of it. I have the Amika Mini Brush (also cause of Katie Jane Hughes…) and its incredible. I air dry my hair and on day two of a washing it starts to look messy so I like to use the hot brush to smooth everything so it looks like I’ve got a nice, voluminous blow out. The mini is affordable for my budget and just fine for my thick shoulder length hair, but it probably takes a few more minutes to do everything than the full sized. I also travel for work about 50% of the time so the little brush is perfect for fitting in my carry-on.

    My hair straightens fairly easily so I don’t know if the mini would work as well for someone with a coarser texture. I also notice that it doesn’t seal the hair cuticle against humidity well and my hair can get poofy and wavy fast when I’m working down in places like Savannah or Houston. To be fair, I never remember to pack any products to use in my hair so that may be the primary reason. Hope this is helpful for anyone considering the investment!

    • Kate says...

      So helpful! Thank you! You wouldn’t happen to have the link to the video, would you?

  17. Abby says...

    Hey Stella – I never do this impulsively but on your recommendation I went straight to an Amika salon near my apartment and bought that hot tool/brush on the spot. It is awesome – thanks so much for the recommendation, I already used it on the hard-to-reach fussy back of my hair and it is perfect!!

  18. Karli says...

    Please stop featuring Stella; she ALWAYS makes me want to cut my hair!

  19. kathy says...

    wait tell me about that straightening brush. i have super thick, coarse, slightly frizzy hair and would love to tame it faster

  20. Nicole A. says...

    So strange the things we remember wearing as kids! Some really stay with you. For example, the outfit that I wore for my very first dance. It was on the last day of middle school, and I was eleven years old. I wore a matchy sunset-colored shirt and skort set. (“Skort” sounds like such a foreign word as an adult!) I danced with a boy I had a pretty hardcore puppy-crush on. We were both barefoot on the gym floor, and we swayed to the music until after the music stopped. I remember thinking I was as brightly colored as I felt going home on the bus that evening. Then, the shirt and skirt combo became bittersweet as my folks sat me and my sister down that night, and told me my dad had stage-three colon cancer. I felt that I immediately came-of-age in that outfit.

    • Thea says...

      Oh my, my heart breaks for your 11 year old self. So many emotions attached to one night and outfit.

  21. Nam Aster says...

    I have been reading a COJ for a while and frankly, for the last couple of post, I am struggling and asking the question: “y’all have no brown friends?” I grew up in Park Slope and I have plenty of BIPOC in my friend group.

    Goop (love it or hate it) consistently has Black and Brown models as does Man Repeller, Atelier Doré, etc. The lack of diversity at COJ is beyond troubling and this is absolutely not against Stella, but with ALL of the amazing women in Brooklyn… you didn’t go further afield ?

  22. Rebecca says...

    Finally, a week of Stella outfits!

    Did i miss a recent Ashley Ford article? I hope not, but I haven’t seen anything from her in a while.

  23. Em says...

    I love Stella! Did you know that in 4/7 of these photos, she’s looking to her right? Haha, what’s over there? A fire truck? A cute dog? A cute boy? Timotheé Chalamet? :D

    • Ceri says...

      We’re-mnn nmjmmyhhnmnynynmm

  24. Ro says...

    This may be a tall order, but I was wondering… can you guys write an article about finding personal style, and creating a cohesive wardrobe, for people who have no idea what they like?

    Or rather, for me, the problem is I like everything. I find things to love about pretty much everyone you feature here. I like structured “masculine” clothes, I love pants and shoes that look like you just spent all day behind a potter’s wheel, I love dresses and heels, vintage, modern, earth tones, bright colors — the list goes on.

    I never know how to combine any of these things in a way that makes sense, or without looking like I fell into a laundry basket. I often compromise by leaving out things I love, and either feeling TOO masculine, or TOO feminine, or TOO vintage, and so on. Is there a way to bring together mismatched elements like these to create a look that feels right and makes sense?

    • Em says...

      You probably look great and are overthinking it :)
      Finding personal style is as easy as this two-step process: 1) picking up an item and saying “I freaking love this” and then 2) putting it on and saying “I feel great in this”. If 1 and 2 don’t happen, it probably ain’t your style.

    • I loved the book ‘The Cool Factor’. Not what you think of when you think of a book on style. Got me thinking about it in a constructive way.

    • Cynthia says...

      It takes time to find what works best for you. I have tailored clothes and very feminine clothes. It depends on my mood. You need to figure out what works best for your body. I’ve fallen in love with certain clothes, but then realize the style won’t work for my shape. I’ve worn my jeans jacket with a feminine dress and I like the look. Be bold, experiment.

    • Nadine says...

      Try the book the curated closet by Anuschka Rees or start with her blog https://anuschkarees.com (formally known as INTO MIND). She helps you to develop your own taste and to curate your own closet from there. Enjoy :)

    • ABM says...

      I have no advice but I struggle with this too – both in clothing and home decor!

    • Lindsay says...

      Years ago I felt the same way and was very confused. Then I discovered Pinterest and after a while, like hundreds of saved images, I started to really see what my style was! It was very eye opening for me. For both how I dress and home decor style. But maybe I’m more selective and particular than you!

  25. Lisa H. says...

    STELLA IS SO ADORABLE!!!

  26. Jo says...

    Cute outfits and very relatable to my young mom/corporate job lifestyle. (Stella – that is meant to be a compliment, I promise LOL!)

    A question I’ve always had for capsule wardrobes – is about the laundry..

    The idea of keeping few pieces sounds great, but how can I use the same shirt 3 times in a week? Are u running a small laundry load every other day? I’m totally baffled. And doesn’t this defeat the point of environmental
    friendliness/sustainability etc?

    • Kathryn says...

      I have the same question! I have all of these capsule wardrobe pins, but can’t figure out the logistics!

    • Anna says...

      I don’t strictly “capsule wardrobe” but I do have a limited wardrobe and often repeat outfits. You don’t need to wash a shirt every time unless you really get sweaty or dirty in it. I usually wear shirts two times, sometimes more if I can, before washing. My tricks are: 1) hang them inside out in your closet when you take them off so they can breathe and air out, 2) alternate items to give your clothes a break, and 3) shower daily! I shower every morning and this makes a big difference in how long I can wear my clothes before washing— sweat only smells when it mixes with bacteria, so keeping clean helps that problem.

    • Jo says...

      Thanks, Anna.
      I do shower everyday and use deodorant (& perfume) too.. but after wearing a top for 8+ hours, I usually relegate it to the laundry pile. I repeat pants between washes, but not tops.. may be I perspire too much :-/

      But I will try the inside out technique and see if that helps.

    • Cynthia says...

      I air tops and sweaters after I wear them by draping them over a chair and putting them away the next day. I wear skirts and slacks several times. I have enough clothes that I don’t wear something twice in one week unless it’s slacks.

    • Christi says...

      Jo, I recently bought some natural laundry freshener spray (The Laundress) and that helps to keep things fresh between washes! I also spill on myself about 3 times a week, so, you know, I definitely have it all together. ;-)

  27. Marcy C. says...

    During a recent reunion with some dear friends, we played a game where we assigned each other a time period– 1880s pioneer, 1970s Berkeley, 18th century France…The first image of you reminds me so much of a classic silent film actress like Lillian Gish or Corinne Griffith. I love love love your style and how intentional you are about the things you buy. Thanks for sharing! xo

  28. Nina says...

    OH I love your straightened hair! Need that brush. Love your outfits. I have snapshots in my mind of emotional moments (I threw up way too much to remember those times). But I did have some pieces I loved – a green velvet jacket I begged for and it was on layaway until I almost grew out of it and then a teacher yelled at me for wearing it in the winter. A McDonald’s sweater that had been a turtleneck but my mom fixed it for me so it wasn’t…the mcfry guys were fringe (mid-70s).

    My sister is a thrift store shopper and has a HUGE walkin closet so packed you can’t put another hanger in. It makes me want to vomit. I love having less than 2 weeks of clothes. so freeing and liberating. and not much thought has to be used for them.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      having a small amount of clothes also helps with packing. we’re flying to england tonight and i could pack in 10 minutes because i just pack the clothes i love and always wear! :) saves so much space in my brain for other things.

    • Alli says...

      Joanna, I would love to see a post on how to pack/what essentials to pack for an overseas trip. I am headed to England and France at the end of August and could definitely use the help!

  29. Kelly says...

    Style to burn, girl! Love these outfits. FYI, I’m afraid of Julie no matter what shoes she has on! :)

  30. Shena says...

    I LOVE that blue shirt…the whole outfit is so cute.

  31. Christie says...

    Stella looks super cute. But having lived through the 80s, I have a really difficult time seeing some of these clothes (high-wasted, mom-jeans) as stylish. I realize I’m the only person in the country now that hates them, but I do. I hated them when they were in style (Loved when the waist went lower), and I hate them now. In the early-90s I went through a 70s phase. All of my elders didn’t get it–they had gone past the style. Now, I completely understand that sentiment. #nomoremomjeansplease

    • Donna says...

      I’m trying not to be judgy, but high-waisted shorts look horrible on the vast majority of people wearing them. I keep waiting for that trend to wane.

    • Gen says...

      I think everyone just has a different body type. I’m petite and curvy, and so much more prefer high-waisted jeans and other bottoms. Mid rise jeans look terrible on me! And I’m loving Stella’s wardrobe sets, they look great on her.

    • Michelle says...

      I’ve heard Donna’s sentiment expressed by others (including my husband, who’s never liked high waisted jeans), but I just don’t see it! I think high waisted styles look so great on basically everyone.

  32. Cynthia says...

    All the outfits are great, and I really like the wrap dress. Stella, your style is timeless!

  33. Amber J says...

    Stella is the cutest. Her beauty uniform and post about being an introvert in NYC are what got me hooked on CoJ years ago! So much affection for this place and the people and things to which you introduce us <3

  34. Olga says...

    Stella, you’re lovely! I am definitely inspired by your outfits.

  35. Susan says...

    I clicked on the Articles& dress thinking it would be much more expensive than it is and literally said “oh no!” when I saw the price because now I’m much too tempted to buy it.

    • Tania Barnes says...

      I’m dying! This was me, exactly.

    • Eloise says...

      I was going to pull the trigger but, as of last night, anyway, it was sold out!! (The power of Stella, perhaps?)

  36. Leah says...

    Stella – do you mind if I ask how tall you are? Knowing would help me to think about how some of these pieces might fit me!

    • This is my question, too. For some reason I’m getting a short vibe. I now only shop for clothes online if they are a) petite-sized or b) being worn by a blogger who I know is confirmed to be short. Models on clothing websites are always 90 feet tall, so I’ve stopped being fooled into into thinking I’ll look like them in the clothes they’re wearing!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi Leah, of course! 5’2″ :)

  37. jillian says...

    oh my god, I want to BE the mother in Call Me By Your Name. I love her jean skirts, giant shorts, and sweat stained silk shirts. And how she is always smoking or translating literature extemporaneously! Summer idol for sure!!!

    • Amanda says...

      The fact that they showed her sweating in a silk blouse made me LOVE the costume designer for this movie. They made the characters look REAL, because honestly, who can wear a silk blouse in the summer and not sweat?

    • Katrin says...

      This whole discussion about the mom’s style is so fun, haha! Like you, Stella, I not only loved, loved, loved the movie, but I also wanted to be like the mom – Jillian, you are so right, she was so wonderful
      and awe-inspiring! Although I would not want to go totally into the 80s style of super baggy clothes, I saw a Charm in her style and now I am on the lookout for clothes that go a little bit in that
      felt inspired by her cl direction. It helps that that is the fashion now anyway -some blouses, looser T-Shirts, and tucking your tops in. Of course, I will never get her cool and her je-ne-sais-quoi, but she is still a lovely inspiration!

  38. beautiful outfits

  39. Meghan says...

    I remember when you posted your beauty uniform, you had high waisted black pants with a denim shirt tucked in. I totally used that styling idea in my own wardrobe. I LOVE everything you’re wearing in this post, I’ve never bought clothing online before (lol, I know), but I’m eying a few items online. I’m going to hold off though, because I loved the suggestion of screenshotting something to decide whether you like it. Thanks for sharing!

  40. Abby says...

    The Saturday morning cartoons closet…YES!

  41. Erin says...

    Oh my gosh. Every. Single. Outfit. = sooooo good. Love your sense of style, Stella! That Article& dress would be so good in my closet right now: stylish AND nursing friendly!

  42. Love your style! Ohh, the childhood outfits. I can easily remember what it felt like to wear thick, scratchy, woolly tights that were always too small, it seemed, and how they were constantly pulling down around the crotch and just, ugh. Probably why I never make my daughter wear tights and I don’t own a pair of nylons or stockings of any type. Helps that I also live in Florida. ;P

  43. Caitlin Dyck says...

    I just want to be Stella’s bff and hang out with the COJ one day. Where we can talk about books, cute guys, and take a walk around Brooklyn. Finish the day with an ice cold glass of white wine. I’m coming to Brooklyn in February… #dreamlife

  44. Chelsey says...

    AAAAHHH!! This is my favorite week of outfits, ever! Our style is so similar, and I loved every piece! Stella is truly adorable (heart clutchingly so) and I LOVE that she mentioned Katie Jane Hughes (who is a genius).

  45. Caitlin says...

    Stella, I absolutely ADORE your style, this is the first Week of Outfits where I’ve looked up every single item! I’ve been looking for straight leg, non-stretchy jeans for the longest time, and i’m wondering how well you think the Agolde ones hold their shape? I have a pair of Levis that I love the look of, but if I sit down for an hour they start to lose their shape and bag out.
    Love everything you do on CoJ!

    • sasha says...

      All non stretch jeans loosen, get baggy etc as you wear them. That’s why they invented stretch denim. And why women like me (45) scratch my head at the return of high waisted non stretch jeans lol. They invented something better imho, but because fashion must be trendy, the inferior but nostalgic style is back. No thank you!! I LOVE my low waisted stretch denim because they are comfortable, and I could wear them five days in a row without a wash and they’d look perfect. End of story.

    • Katie says...

      The Agolde jeans actually do have stretch (1% elastane) to them, which is how they bounce back. 100% cotton denim is always going to bag out and need a wash/ dry to snap back. Look for the vintage silhouettes you like with a tiny bit (1%, maybe 2) of stretch in the fiber content (elastane, spandex, Lycra).

  46. Lisa says...

    Fav style post yet, Stella is my new style icon!!

  47. Nancey says...

    I love your looks, every. single. one. It helps that you are also beautiful. I think a paper bag with a belt would look lovely on you. Like you remember your awkward clothing I remember my awkward beauty blunders, like when I thought it would be a good idea to put Ziploc bags of peanut butter in my bra for some ‘lift’ but by the end of the night of dancing it had started to turn liquid like and I smelled like a jar of Jif. The time I put Johnson’s baby oil on my legs but it dripped down to my shoes so on the express bus to Manhattan from the Bronx I slid out of my shoes and landed in a ladies Hair and had to detangle myself from it while she screamed. One time I decided to wear a beautiful crocheted white dress to work in NY and it started to rain, so I pulled a folder from my bag but it was red so I bled onto my white dress and by the time I walked into work I looked like Carrie on a bad day.

    • Yulia says...

      My word, thank you for the laughs Nancey! You seem like someone withlots of good stories. :)

    • Lisa H. says...

      Oh my God I want to be your best friend.

  48. Allison says...

    i think i might be older than Stella but nonetheless, I’d like to be her when I grow up :)

  49. Every one of these outfits is so good. Total inspiration for a simple summer.
    I also remember the clothes that drove me nuts! My mom made me wear stirrup pants all the time and they drove me nuts! I have flat feet and couldn’t stand the elastic band under my foot.

  50. Jess says...

    I now have so many tabs open because I want all of your clothes! Love your style.

  51. Tammy Madsen says...

    Stella! Every single outfit is spot-on perfect. You’ve got tremendous style.

    I WANT that Article& dress. It’s so chic and cool. But it’s sold out.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Tammy, this comment means so much, THANK YOU! Hopefully they’ll restock! xx

  52. Such gorgeous, classic outfits. I just followed the Aritzia link to those trousers and they are sold out (at least in the lovely color you have). Have a feeling it’s due to this post! Officially a style influencer, Stella :)

  53. Jade says...

    I love Katie Jane Hughes videos- I watch her to relax.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hahaha, I know, right?! Even her voice is calming. x

  54. Alexa says...

    Stella, may I ask how tall are you? Im 5”2 on a tall day and wear high heels whenever I go out. Yet, I think you look great with low heels!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi, Alexa! I’m 5”2 on a tall day, too! Low heels are where it’s at!

      P.S. Did you ever hear that podcast episode of The Mystery Show where Starlee Kline tries to figure out Jake Gyllenhaal’s height? Reminds me on this because they keep saying the phrase “max morning height” hahaha

      https://www.gimletmedia.com/mystery-show/case-5-source-code

    • Heather says...

      I love that episode of The Mystery Show. Especially when she talks to Jake G at the end and he’s so laid-back and adorable JUST LIKE I ALWAYS KNEW HE WOULD BE.

  55. Dana says...

      Love this, Dana! How awesome are you?!?!

  56. Nora says...

    Wow, I would wear every single piece. That never happens! I love the bright red shoes and bag – I hope you know something I don’t and that color will be everywhere soon.

    It is great to see the repurposing of pieces throughout, I’m trying to keep fewer clothes in my closet and make every piece “earn its keep” by working in multiple ways. But keeping it down to 15 hangers worth is impressive. What do you do with things that are off season, or just temporarily out of the rotation?

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Thank you for the super kind words, Nora! Means a lot! :)

      A lot of my clothes I can wear year round, like jeans and sweaters (in ac offices) , but my coats and boots are in my suitcases in my closet! Ha! Pretty make do, but it works for me!

  57. Laura C. says...

    Oh Stella… I love your style, it is pretty much as mine was, because on this days I’m so down that I feel that everything that I have in my closet sucks.
    [Moment in which I wished I was more fluent in English so I can explain my feelings]:
    On the last 8/10 years I’ve been feeling like I’m losing myself everyday. I moved back to my home country seeking for happiness and personal fulfilling, but I’m not being succesful at finding them. I got married, I become a mom twice.
    And still seeking for those feelings.
    SInce I have always believed that clothing reflect one person’s style, mood and soul (you know what I mean), I’ve found myself keeping old clothes that I don’t fit anymore, or very old-fashioned, just because I was happier/better/safer/more confident when I bought them and wore them. I match every piece of clothes that I have with the moment that I am going through. Now I see a shirt, and think “was I happy when I got it?” And I felt that I should discard it. But, If I do so, I’d be almost naked everyday!!
    I really like the idea of a uniform, like the cartoons thing that you said, but I don’t feel very good now and I don’t want to buy new lovely things because I don’t want to match them with an unhappy time of my life. And the loop goes on.
    So basically I try to feel good for some days, and try to get something that I know my mind will link to that ‘feel-good moment’ and so I know that I’ll be wearing it for a while. Being jobless since ages doesn’t help because I have to search for cute and not pricey things, and it’s not easy.

    Sorry for this long and boring comment. Thank you.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Laura, first, your English is wonderful. Second, thank you for opening up and being so honest about these thoughts. I have personally had many, many moments when I just don’t feel like myself, and certain things like clothes only make me feel like screaming. You sound like such a loving and wonderful person. Wishing I could reach out and give you the biggest hug. Thinking of you, and sending all the good vibes your way. xx

    • Laura C. says...

      Thank you, Stella. You are so precious.
      This site and its community is a happy place for me <3

    • Claire says...

      Laura, I will be thinking of you today and wishing you well. Are your children still small? That can be a busy and challenging time, and being unemployed is also not easy – another layer of worries (I am also unemployed, and have been searching for a while. It has been so difficult. ). For what it’s worth – I’ve found during times like these that the goals of happiness and personal fulfillment can become a burden, or take on a different meaning in my life. If I judge my days by those measures than I can start to feel inadequate. These days it seems best to take a sideways step in my perspective, and think smaller, narrow my focus. Right now I am in survival mode, and I have to make a deliberate intention to move through my days focused on the small moments and joys. This is much easier on me, and I find the days are more generous than I realized. I hope you find work soon. And that your worries ease. Blessings and wellness to you.

    • Laura C. says...

      @Claire: You’re a blessing and I truly appreciate this message. Actually when I hit “post a comment” I felt like I might be exposing myself a little too much, also because this site is largely visited and read. But this community is wonderful, I’ve been always felt cosy and comfortable here.
      Sorry for lowering down the mood that this post is supposed to have, but those were my feelings at the moment. Your advice is precious too- I’ll narrow my focus.
      @CoJ: maybe a post about personal fulfilling and how do we do to get it?

  58. Stephanie says...

    Joanna’s right – you look very cute, Stella! Beautiful style.

    And yes, I am also on board with Call Me By Your Name fashion. The fashion was wonderful; every single element of that film was SO inspiring. And I love that CoJ staff still seem to be wrapped up in that movie too… It is one for the ages <3

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Thank you so much, Stephanie!!!

      We might have officially met our quota of Call Me By Your Name references, haha ;)

  59. Alba says...

    Hellow cup of jo crew, first I find your blog amazing, I have been reading it for more than five years I think (more or less)!
    I have a request, if you feel up to Id love if you write a post about your beloved fashion/motherhood/cultural blogs that you often read or you find inspiration in.
    Ive run out of ideas, and sometimes I just google “best blogs” and things like that but I almost know all of them.
    Also if a reader reads ths comment and wants to give me a bunch ideas I really appreciate it.
    thank you!

  60. Heidi says...

    I just had to screenshot that hairbrush and will think about buying it for the next couple of weeks! ;)
    Love your style, Stella!

    • Leah says...

      I got one for myself this year and it totally lives up to the hype. I now straighten my shoulder length hair in like four large sections! So quick and easy.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Haha, love it, Heidi!!! And agree with you, Leah! Was VERY skeptical at first.

  61. Lisa says...

    The tip for not buying is great.
    Your style is so great! The first outfit looks like something out of a French movie in the 60s.

    I’m trying to buy less having just moved and hated my previous self for buying so much of everything. What I’m trying to do is at least wait til the sales so I spend less. I’ve been stalking a cos top for weeks, waiting for it to go on sale (not yet!) and then they went and confused me by releasing another top I deeply love.

    Uniqlo knitwear is the best, and can even survive my below standard knitwear washing.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Lisa, thank you for your sweet comment. Means so much.

      And yes!!!! COS gets me like that, too!

  62. MAJOR LOVE!
    Stella, you definately a girl crush!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      So nice, Gadis! <3

  63. Moo says...

    Great outfits & I loved how the background matches each one. And yes to clothes/shoes that are cute and comfy!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Thank you so much, Moo!!!

  64. BW says...

    Loving this post. Love the attitude, love the clothes, love the sense of proportion, love the slow-fashion philosophy. I looked up almost every piece, most of which are sold out now – boo! I hope you do more of these, Stella! Btw I love that the style here is pretty timeless. Most of these would work on women of any age. Righteous.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Thanks so much for this comment, BW! What high compliments :) Means a lot.

  65. Alexia says...

    Can we please have an entire post dedicated to the clothes in Call Me By Your Name? I love all the women’s outfits (and the guys too!) and have been trying so hard to find a match for some of the dresses, like this one: https://s1.r29static.com//bin/entry/869/720×600,80/1890703/image.jpg

    I saw that Man Repeller did a similar post but would love to see COJ’s take.

  66. Anne says...

    This was so fun to read! ❤️ Plus cute outfits and minimalism tips

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Aww, thank you, Anne! xx

  67. ” Like my blue Mary Janes I had in fourth grade that pinched my heels unless I walked on my toes, or the cargo pants with five rogue zippers. Or the homecoming dress I had to casually hold up the entire night with one hand. What was I thinking? The clothes that let you do you are where it’s at. Now I know.”

    I feel like this can be used to describe relationships that never work out, too! You know this guy is not suitable for you and yet you hang on to the relationship, hoping that one day, the heels will soften to mold to your feet… which never happens!

    Lovely outfits, Stella! Adore all of them :)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Aw, love that, Anne!!!

  68. Lorraine says...

    Thank you for this post, Stella! You have a way of seeming so bien dans sa peau. Love your style but also your grace.

  69. Tara says...

    Lovvveeeee these clothes!! Please just link Stella’s fav shops

  70. Carrie says...

    Love all of it, I clicked on every single link this time! That’s how you know it’s a good week of outfits! And bravo on the jeans, cutest pair ever. gonna need to start saving up for them also!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Aww, Carrie!!!! So kind! x

  71. AJ says...

    Stella you are a masterclass in style for the budget/space/comfort-conscious! Love the cool Eighties vibe and no-nonsense-with-an-edge you’re rocking. You look so good! Now I want to find my perfect denim jacket!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      This comment is too kind, AJ! Thanks for making my day :)

      Stella x

  72. SK says...

    I have been on the verge of taking the plunge with this sweater for SO long! It looks so cute! Stella, is it see-through, aka do you have to wear a tee under it? And since it’s a single size, any guess how large it could fit?

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi SK! Right!? I had been thinking about it for months. It really does get better and better with wear. It’s not see-through, but I do wear I nude bra with it FWIW! It’s a little smaller than I expected — I’m normally a small and was worried it would be too oversized. I say it would fit up to a US size large! Hope this helps! Stella x

  73. Love the last line two lines. As I age I crave stylish comfort more and more.

  74. Maggie says...

    I’m so happy to see this, but I was hoping the infamous bright red Everlane sweater would make an appearance!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      LOL! So funny. It was def a runner up.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      hahaha that’s one of my favorite of stella’s outfits too! so cute with a denim jacket, black pants and white sneaks.

  75. Annie says...

    I’ve creepily seen Stella walking in Brooklyn Heights a few times, and always wanted to say to her “You look adorable!!!!” Then I get so excited I live in Brooklyn, where Cup of Jo is :)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      OH MY GOODNESS, ANNIE, PLEASE SAY HI!!!!!

    • lc says...

      this is so funny–i always feel SO UNCOMFORTABLE when i see someone irl that i “know” online….creepy? fun? i just don’t tell…

    • Amy says...

      I used to live in Cobble Hill. I saw Stella and Caroline a couple times and even saw Alex once, but never Jo! The party behind Clare V doesn’t count ;)
      You guys are internet celebs! I never said hi of course, I can barely say hi to my own neighbors, whoops… Lena Dunham, Peter Dinklage and Ethan Hawke are some of my favorite “real” celeb sightings around the hood. I miss Brooklyn sometimes.

  76. Katey says...

    I love this style post! Not just because I would wear every single outfit, but because it was so nice to see the repurposing of core pieces in different outfits. You got a good sense of how a few well-made pieces can be mixed and matched throughout the week. Going to clean out my tiny NYC closet now :-)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Thank you for your kind comment, Katey! Means a lot! Those NYC closets, man :)

  77. Typing this as I’m putting those pants on hold at the nearest Aritzia. Your style is so simple yet so perfect. Love your contribution to this blog, Stella <3

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Laughing at this comment, yes! They are the best! Thank you so much for your kind words, Anya! x

  78. love those jeans and doen top.. also, am i the only one who wears clothes mostly bought years ago? so curious.

  79. Annie says...

    Every Stella post I think “Boo! I want Caroline back!” And then I read the post and think, “Oh JK, I love Stella! I can miss Caroline and still love Stella, too.”

    I love your style and philosophy on buying clothes. There is SO much waste in the clothing industry and I also take forever (or never) to buy new pieces. I love reframing it that I’m setting aside $20/month for 5 months. It feels more manageable to buy high quality clothes for my new mom bod that way.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      annie, they’re both on our team! :)

  80. Laura says...

    Yes to short sleeved sweaters!! Button downs never seem to fit me right and always feel just a little stuffy, so these are my go-to for work. Finding nice fitted lightweight ones is surprisingly difficult, so thanks for the tip!!!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Yes, so happy to have a fellow short sleeve sweater fan, Laura! :)

    • Nora says...

      I love them, too, there’s something Audrey Hepburnish about them and they are hard to find.

    • Fiona says...

      Ive gotten some beautiful merino ones at Uniqulo – they’re not short sleeve but I use them as blouses a lot – I also used to buy Zara ones (they come in boatneck which is my absolute fave cut). I need to find the unicorn of boatneck bracelet 3/4 sleeve in a multitude of colors, I would buy one of each!

  81. Kate says...

    I subscribe to your screenshot-and-save shopping philosophy too (which drives my friends crazy, but has created an amazing wardrobe.) Lately it’s been backfiring though, as more brands are releasing “capsules” and “limited editions” and I’m left with regret for the one that got away…

    Stella, I’ve admired your style for as long as I can remember, and I’m willing to bet all your picks sell out too!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Kate, loved reading your comment, and thank you so much for the kind words!!!! Yes, sometimes I have anxiety about pieces selling out, ahem, Everlane. Thanks again. x

    • Kate says...

      YES everlane. and sezane. always sezane!

  82. Claire says...

    All so cute, casua,l and functional- hard to beat that combo! I love it all. One day I want one of those Babaa sweaters. I sure love the Doen stuff, but their sizes are so small that I have not really considered shopping with them (a size large = a size 10). But Stella- that blouse looks wonderful on you- I love it with jeans and red shoes. Also, I appreciated reading how you spot something you like, wait a while to see if you really want it, and then save up to buy it. That makes so much good sense! Thanks for sharing those comments!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Claire, thank you so much for your kind words! Really mean a lot. The Babaa sweater is definitely a splurge! But truly one of the softest things I own. Thank you again! xx

  83. Lidia says...

    So happy to see this post! I love Stella’s writing style AND her fashion sense! Previously, I stalked the comment section of one of her posts to see if anyone had asked where her dress was from. Luckily someone did and she responded that the dress was from Reformation. I immediately ordered the dress (went with black instead of red) and I love it! Trying to hold back from buying that UNIQLO sweater right now!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Lidia! This comment makes my day! Really, thank you :) So happy you are loving that Reformation dress too!!!!

      SAME!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      YOU GUYS!!!!!

  85. Liv says...

    I have a google doc of inspiration I get from the “my beauty uniform series”. The doc is full of products, ideas, and quotes from all the beautiful women featured. Beauty and style always seemed “off-limits” to me; as a teenager, I felt too much like a tomboy, too much like an immigrant, too much of a bookworm to care about wide leg pants or the perfect conditioner for curls. These posts have shown me beauty is for everyone. Thank you.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      So sweet, Liv. Thank you for this note. <3

    • Robin says...

      This is SUCH a great idea!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      yes! you sound wonderful, liv. i strongly believe that beauty is for everyone, too — you can be intellectual AND care about lipstick colors; you can read the news every day AND play around with eyeliner; you can excel at your career AND enjoy a sweet-smelling soap in your morning shower. :) people are complicated and complex, and beauty is for everyone who wants it.

      joanaxoxoxo

    • Delia says...

      Joanna, your reply really stuck with me. I’m also not a “beauty person” and beauty always felt un-accessible to me. I guess it’s probably a hangover from high school days of (like Liv) feeling too bookish or too different to be into fashion. Like, I wasn’t blonde and popular so why even try? I normally skip your beauty and fashion posts, actually, but just happened to click through on this one. But I love what you wrote about beauty being for everyone — maybe even me? Feeling kind of unsure but definitely curious. Do you have any recommendations of past beauty posts from folks who maybe also also feels like they’re unsure and trying to find their place in the world of fashion? Or just your favorite posts as a place to start from?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you so much for your note, delia!

  86. Monica says...

    I have the same shirt from Uniqlo! I have two in navy, one in black, one in grey, one in white and my friends tell me I am like a cartoon character all the time! They had a similar style of that shirt last year (that one was soooo soft) and I knew they wouldn’t have it this year so I have…(pause)…FIVE of them in navy. I’ll be wearing that sweater for the rest of my life.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Laughing so much, Monica!!!! YES!

    • Lauren says...

      Stella and Monica, I’m dying to buy the uniqlo shirt after your rave reviews. How does it run?

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi Lauren, I typically wear a xs-small, and I got a small! Hope that helps!

  87. Eloise says...

    I love the Article& dress and it would actually fit me (I’m five two on a tall day) but wonder: How do you pull off wh/lite colors on the subway, etc.?? Maybe I’m just a slob?

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      I am a slob, too!!!! Somehow the woven fabric of this makes any stains way less obvious than say, a white t-shirt, etc

      Hope that helps, Eloise!

  88. Julia Patton says...

    You know there’s internet people that you’re convinced you’d be friends with in real life? Stella is my “we should hang out” internet friend. She just doesn’t know it. Stalker. Table for 1. Or 2!

    This is only confirmed more by the fact that there are exactly 4 items in this roundup that I currently own and 2 that are on my wishlist. And all in the exact same colorway! I mean…

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      JULIA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing at this so much. This flattery is too much! I do not deserve these words!!! You are adorable and we are definitely friends now. xx

  89. Haha I think it was Nora Ephron who said, “Kids remember two things about their childhood: when you weren’t there, and when they threw up.” That really resonated once I became a mom! :)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hahaha, yes!!! Making me laugh, Joy! x

  90. Lilia says...

    Stella, I love your style! Simple, understated, comfortable, and cute (which is what I aim for as a working mom of two young kids). I love the Agolde jeans and may need to get a pair myself…

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Aw, thanks so much, Lilia! Means a lot! Really do love those jeans <3

  91. Emily says...

    Stella! I love your style! And those wide leg pants are amazing/ so affordable! Any idea what size I should order if I usually wear a size 26 in Levis/no stretch denim? So happy you shared your week of outfits!

    • Roxanne says...

      I find Aritzia is such a hit or miss in terms of sizing. I took the time to take my measurements the last time I ordered from them and one pants was huuuge and the other one was teeny-tiny. Are they true to size?

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi Emily, thank you for the sweet words! I am normally a 25-26 at Madewell or Everlane, and I ordered the size 2! There’s no stretch, but they are comfy! Hope that helps! x

  92. Julie says...

    I love her style. I feel like I could actually pull these outfits off!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Julie, so kind, thank you! And YOU CAN!!!! :)

  93. Kate says...

    Totally going to clean out my closet with the “you do you” qualifier. I have so many clothes that do not fit the bill, but that’s such a no-brainer! Love your style and budget tips, Stella! Thanks!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Aw, Kate. This is awesome, thank you :)

  94. Sonja says...

    Yes, Team Stella over here! Stella, you are the NYC living girl I always wanted to be! I’m headed to Brooklyn (toddler and husband in tow) this Fall – can we get some Stella recs ASAP?! Three days in NYC – what are the musts? PS – not so secretly hoping to run into a COJ lady – basically the dream. ;)

  95. Gabrielle says...

    Amen to good jeans. I have a pair from Everlane that I wear forever on repeat – my husband recently asked if I still owned any others ;). They do the right things for my butt and I’ll wear them until they don’t.

    I came to CoJ and literally said (to no one), “ooooh Stella!”. You are always so smart and charming (and stylish)! Strong ladies like you make me so proud to be a millennial.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      OMG, Gabrielle! This comment is making me smile SO much. Thank you for this. Made my day. And yes to Everlane jeans!

  96. Laure says...

    Love your style Stella :) Cant wait to explore these brands!
    Also, weirdish question: Im 5″2 and jeans are always too damn long for me it drives me NUTS. I might be TOTALLY off but I feel you are petite too so I wanted to know how tall you are…I realize this is sort of a creepy thing to ask but I’m amazed by how great those straight jeans look and feel they just might be the ones I’ve been looking for!
    Thanks xxxxxxx

    • Nora says...

      Ha ha, I was wondering the same thing. I absolutely love the first dress on you, especially with the sneakers and jacket, but I would never consider it if I’d only seen it on the store’s website, it looks too short (and slightly off to my eyes) on the model and I can never tell if it would work better on someone of average to shortish height.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Hi Laure! Not weird at all!!!! I am 5’2 also! And yes, no jeans fit! But it’s the first year I started getting jeans hemmed — keeping the original hem. It’s cheaper than I expected, and it makes all of the difference. Or, I just cut them off, haha.

    • Laure says...

      that’s so funny i also cut a lot of my jeans (if they were cheap to begin with) its nice that the cut off jean thing is in fashion ;)
      did you get these hemmed? i’m gonna jump on the hemming train ?

  97. Hannah says...

    Stella, I love your style. But I think I love you more :)

    PS: Is “pitched my heels” a new thing or is it supposed to be “pinched my heels”?

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      LOL! Fixing now :) Thank you!

  98. Kait says...

    Love your style!!!! I was also swooning over the Call me by your name outfits! I immediately went out and purchased a red stripe shirt and have been wearing them with cut offs. Loved the mom as well. Your style is minimal, yet includes punchy details which keeps it interesting. Something I would love to strive for :)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Thank you so much, Kait! So kind!!! Please share your red stripe shirt source, need to know!!!

      xx

  99. Hani says...

    I love Stella’s style!
    I laughed out loud about avoiding her mom when she was wearing those certain shoes! We did the same growing up, anytime my mom had her hair in a scrunchie and had her ‘tennies’ on. Lol

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Really laughing at this, Hani!!! <3

  100. Katie says...

    Yesss!!! So chic! I’m such a Stella fan!

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Katie, the sweetest. Thank you! I am a Katie fan! :)

  101. Laura says...

    YEESSSSSS I’m so happy for this post! Love Stella’s work as well as her style.

    For my siblings and me, avoiding-mom-time was when she had Spanish music blasting throughout the house. That meant she was on a mission to clean the house and would either:
    a) yell out orders for chores to do
    b) yell at you for getting in her way
    She was a machine when that music was on.

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Laura, this is the greatest comment! Your mom is amazing. Love hearing this.

  102. Justine says...

    I love Katie Jane Hughes! Thanks for the brush recommendation. And love the Doen blouse :-)

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      She’s the best! And thank you so much, Justine! x

  103. Victoria says...

    DAY MADE! I adore all things Stella (creepy or flattering?) and I’ve been waiting for a post like this. I talk about Stella as if she is my cool IRL friend. My actual friends are always like “WHO?!….Oh that girl you’ve never met AGAIN?”. Creepy as I am, I love her style. Thanks for sharing this! And Stella…hang out with me please and share some of your cool-ness? <3

    • Stella Blackmon says...

      Victoria, oh my goodness, I almost fainted reading this. This is seriously the kindest thing I could ever dream of reading. Seriously, thank you for making my day. YOU are adorable. xoxoxox

    • Victoria says...

      Stella! Now you just made MY day AGAIN by replying. I hope one day we cross paths in the city <3
