the new look: back to basics.

the new look Uncategorized

when in doubt, the easiest thing to put on and you know you’ll look pulled together is a pair of jeans and a knit. add some interesting jewelry and heels, and you’re done. all the better for getting out the door in a hurry.

rather than going with an oversized sweatshirt and oversized boyfriend jeans, both of these pieces are a bit more fitted so my shape doesn’t completely disappear. i had been looking for a cool pair of boy fit jeans (not to be confused with boyfriend; boy jeans are low slung with a slim, straight leg and cropped length while boyfriend tend to be more slouchy and sit low on the hip with a fuller, relaxed leg) and of course, i found the perfect pair at zara. the wash is not too light which means i can wear past october, and (most of) the distressing doesn’t go through the jean, meaning i’m not exposing a weird part of my thigh or shin. because that can be awkward in the office.

warehouse coat (old), tna sweatshirt via aritzia, zara jeans and necklace, tildon pumps via nordstrom, coach bag (love this bag too), tom ford sunglasses, alex mika ring, jewelmint, céline, eddie borgo bracelets
