the new look: red stripes and acid wash.

the new look

happy tuesday! here’s a look a recently wore when the weather here was a bit warmer. i bought this zara top a few months ago and have worn it a few times (like here)…initially i couldn’t decide between the red stripes and the blue gingham, but the red won out since i felt like i needed more color in my life. you can wear the wrap in the front or back to give you additional styling options, which means more bang for the buck. the skirt was an all saints sale find…i love denim mini’s, the gray acid wash felt modern, plus i knew i could wear this later in the year with chunkier knits and ankle boots. always looking to make sure new additions to my closet are versatile and not “one trick ponies.” i grounded the look with black heels and a vintage black balenciaga clutch for a night out, but minimal slides or a lower block heel sandal would work for a casual feel.

hope you’re week is off to a great start and thanks for stopping by…
