all day.

zara top (find similar here) & shoes, thrifted jeans (a perfect pair here)

my favorite formula: cropped top, mom jeans & mules.  i added the holes and rips today hunching over with scissors and tweezers for about a good hour and a half.  a vacuuming and a tumble in the dryer later, i had to take them out for a test run.  i liked them so much i went to the thrift store to find more potential mom jeans but no luck today.  i actually just got a pair from zara that i haven't worn yet because i'm still debating on whether to have them hemmed to a cropped length or to even just keep them because they were pretty pricey.  but i guess we will all just see...


saturday slippin'.

zara top (love this one), skirt (similar here) & shoes (dream pair here)

now that i've been back to blogging (i guess), i had to kind of create a line-up of my outfits.  i want to try to show my older purchases and/or looks so i don't completely forget about them.  also it helps me put them to more use.
facts i should mention about this look; (minus the shoes) this outfit cost me about $25, i got the top and skirt about 2 months ago (the shoes a few days ago) and this is my version of the 90's style i am obsessed with.      


blue jeans, cream shirt.

wearing everything i love all at once...always fun to do.  and i will apologize in advance for wearing these jeans a lot because i was lucky to find the perfect pair of vintage levi's.

i was geting really bored with the selection of jeans or pants in general for so long, hence the 5% of the time that i'm in pants on this blog (or my Instagram).  i really needed something different in terms of shape or silhouette.  boyfriend jeans a few years ago was a breath of fresh air and is still a fav of mine.  but then the idea of a high-waisted pair of boyfriend jeans i.e. mom jeans was perfect. i could have something to wear with all these cropped tops i can't stop buying.  the only thing is finding the right pair...     

to the minimum.

for the last year or so i've kept a really simple (and greyscale) wardrobe with the exception of denim, camel, a tiny bit of color here and there and even sequins.  it makes dressing up easy but building it, knowing essential pieces is key.  this post features some; a masculine camel coat, a silk tank top and ripped & relaxed denim.  and depending on the occasion or event, i like to make sure it doesn't look overly "comfortable" by adding a sexy and chic pair of shoes.
