taking it back to a look from my trip to memphis with anh last month. i was only in town for about 2 days, and wanted to pack light so the easiest way to do that was with sleek separates. i’ve had this relaxed blazer from zara for years (here’s a look featuring it from 2014) and it has held up well—it has tonal polka dots and the tipped edges are reminiscent of a pajama top. it instantly dresses up anything it’s paired with, in this case a cozy gray tee and sleek black skinny jeans. finally, the finishing touch was my new chanel loafers that i treated myself to for my birthday. i had been wanting a pair of patent loafers since gucci came out with theirs, and i love the minimal feel of these. definitely a splurge but well worth it!

zara blazer (old, similar here and similar style in blush), banana republic tee, frame jeans, chanel loafers (similar splurge, these under $300 and these under $200), future glory bag (tote version here)
