A Week In Outfits: Abby Clemente

This summer, Hoot is highlighting a week in outfits as told by stylish CU students at their various jobs and internships. This week, we’re featuring Abby Clemente, Barnard Class of 2020.

My name is Abby Clemente, and I’m an incoming sophomore at Barnard College. I’m currently undeclared but am thinking of double majoring in economics with a political track, and art history with a visual arts concentration. For the past three summers, I’ve been working at a store in my town called Aerin. Aerin Lauder is Estée Lauder’s granddaughter. She decided to open up her own shop in Southampton, and has expanded it year to year, selling things from home décor, beauty, accessories, and clothes! My job basically consists of meeting each day’s profit goal, styling clients, merchandising and managing the store layout, shipping out orders, and checking inventory to keep up with replenishment and stock.

Sunday: Sundays are my days off, so I spent the day at a cute little town called Greenport before having a picnic at a vineyard nearby. The dress code for my store are meant to be more lighter colors and not a lot of black, so today I took advantage of my typical dark color scheme/wardrobe! I wore a plain black tee with some straight leg denims, a belt, an old pair of strappy sandals, and my new Tjmaxx find that I think makes the outfit, a long black Cynthia Rowley vest!

Monday: Back to work! I decided to throw on the easiest pieces I could find for a 9am Monday morning, so I guess I went for a kind of nautical look here. I wore a red and white striped tee, tucked into a white skirt (which I managed to stain with my salad dressing from lunch, of course!), and these beige t-strap sandals courtesy of Aerin.

Tuesday: I’m a big fan of a good quick and easy throw-on romper. I scored this fun denim one from Beacon’s Closet, a thrift store that you have to visit in Williamsburg if you haven’t already! It’s like a rendition of the typical overalls, but a little more dressy and more appropriate for work. Sunglasses are from Sunnies (a Philippine brand), and this Lola hat is my favorite one we sell in the store called “Dad’s hat!”

Thursday: Thursdays are usually replen day, and today was insane with 25 boxes shipped in! We received our new fall merchandise, as well as a bunch of shipment for our upcoming trunk show. It was a long hot day, unboxing and carrying boxes to our basement, so I strategized that morning with these soft, thin linen pants! And of course I accessorized with some gold accents, Aerin’s favorite!

Friday: Today I went with my favorite wrap around skirt I found from this super cute store in Greenport called Lido, as pictured in my Sunday ootd. The denim blouse I stole from my mom’s closet! Sorry mom. And the espadrille slip ons are my favorite go to’s for work. Also, we just got Rebecca de Ravanel’s new cherry earrings in for the store and I decided to try ’em on! ;)

Saturday: To end my week, that night there was an event going on in the Parrish Art Museum, so I decided to go last minute with my best friend! We checked out the new photorealism art installation, before going outside to listen to some live Ghanaian music, then watching some short films that spotlight a bunch of cool, talented, and creative people from Senegal and Ghana!

    4 days ago by hootmag “A friend once told me that I pick out clothes not according to general style or brand, but rather by color and fit. I definitely think that is true, I get a lot of my clothes from thrift stores and don’t often pay attention to the label. Most of my clothes are picked out from colors, cuts, or patterns that catch my eye in store. Because of that, my style is pretty hard to define and not very cohesive, but full of pieces that are very dear to me.”  @eloisewest  CLOSETS UP ON HOOTMAG.ORG/BLOG
