I wish my life was like You’ve Got Mail but without the dial-up internet. (I don’t miss waiting minutes to get online then almost immediately getting booted off.) The movie feels so cozy, and even when things go wrong, you know everything is going to work out okay. Plus, it was written by Nora Ephron, so all the characters seem sophisticated and witty but, also, real. And, let’s not forget the perfect 90’s movie couple of Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Sigh.
Maybe, it’s just that I’m getting older, or maybe, it’s because 90’s fashions are seeping back into our wardrobes, but I’m feeling very nostalgic for the 90’s. And, I want to steal everything Meg Ryan wears in the movie – button downs, turtlenecks, cardigans… Nothing is fussy. Everything is simple yet charming.
Get the look by starting with a neutral palette of black, white, grey, and brown. Stock up on button down shirts, high waisted pants, full skirts, and flat shoes.
