Nailpolish: Essie "Borrowed & Blue", OPI "Dating a Royal"
Cell phone case: Rifle Paper Co
Worn to work & a drink. On the days that I'm feeling a little lazy, I go cozy/baggy as much as possible, then throw on one over-the-top fancy element. On this day, it was these gorgeous floral pumps.
I added one strong color accent (the orange tote) to the equation, and in the end I still felt relatively okay about wearing slouchy denim and a glorified t-shirt to work.
In the six years since I bought them, I've not come across a single pair of boyfriend jeans that are as wonderful as these babies. Boyfriend jeans can be hard to pull of when your hips don't lie. These ones have a really perfect drape and cuff at just the right place to keep it all balanced.
It boggles my mind how sometimes the simplest clothes in a woman's closet can be the most effective. Whenever I feel like I'm drowning in trends (platform athletic shoes as work wear, layered statement necklaces, cutout mules, perforated leather crop tops, "cheeky" mom jean shorts, OY), I find it helpful to think of photos like the ones above. These women strike me not necessarily because of what they're wearing, but because of how confident and assured they seem in their clothes, and how their clothes seem like another skin made only for them. It's so much fun to wonder who they might be. This is when style is perfect, to me - it's not about what we're putting on, it's about what we're giving off.
