the new look: at great heights.

the new look

some days you just wake up not feeling all amazing, get dressed in something seemingly nondescript, and your mood changes, you stand up a bit straighter, feel more confident, not conceited, but just good about yourself.

that was me on the day i wore this. i had some meetings at work and was going to dinner afterwards, so it was about being chic, but would also warm, because…san francisco nights. so i went with something failsafe—black and white. this white shirt from uniqlo is the best drapey button down—under $20 and with no chest pockets (contemplating buying another one in a larger size to have as a slouchier version), and this maxi is comfortable and flattering. i added a pair of snakeskin heeled oxfords and tossed this clutch in my work bag. and then it happened, the change in my mood, the pep to my step, the inner voice saying ‘you got this.’ sometimes it’s not about what you wear, but how you feel when you wear it…
