I really liked the juxtaposition of stripes on the shirt with checkers on the pants but I couldn’t figure out what to do with the shirt because the pants are a little big. I tried tucked in, tied to the side, tied in front and finally settled on tied in the back. Then I rolled the pants.
what I wore: trench – marvin richards, trousers – ralph lauren (seen here, here), blouse – old navy, bowtie – little boy’s at target, necklace – kate spade, platforms – steve madden, jewels – gifts, vintage, charm & chain, bcbg
This outfit is the result of having entirely too much time to get ready. Yesterday morning I woke up at 4am and could not go back to sleep (rare occurrence). So I got up, showered and spent two hours leisurely getting ready, as there was nothing else to do. I like this outfit even though it’s a lot going on. I find that I like looks that either say a lot or say next to nothing. Sometimes you need 2 necklaces, 3 bangles and 6 rings to feel dressed, sometimes it feels like the fewer the better. I’ve been wearing a lot of blue lately. I think it’s nice to do a really feminine hair style with such a tailored look. I’m really excited about an upcoming collaboration. More details soon!
