So grounded.

So grounded.

I’m so in love with this culotte/legging pairing right now! I would totally rock it every day if wearing dirty clothing was acceptable.  Unfortunately (or fortunately?), it isn’t so I will try to space it out a bit.  Anyway, I love the shape that they create together, the skinny and the flowing, and the texture of the silky culottes against woven leggings.  Add in these little booties from ShoeMint and I am pretty sure we can call it a day.  Cute and comfortable, there is nothing better! I thought the necklace was the perfect piece for this outfit, with a little bit of color and the perfect amount of black to break up the white on top.  This Tiger Eye Mala from Karma Mantra is basically an everyday piece for me lately.  So easy to throw on with everything! Plus, Tiger Eye is said to have protective and grounding properties, and who couldn’t use a little bit of that?!? I mean, I AM TOTALLY GROUNDED OVER HERE.   Shirt: Anthropologie, similar here // Culottes: Urban Outfitters // Leggings: Urban Outfitters // Shoes: ShoeMint // Necklace: Karma Mantra  Photography by Randy...
Put ’em together and what have you got?

Put ’em together and what have you got?

I AM A MARSHMALLOW!  No seriously though, this sweater is massive and I feel like the Michelin Man when I wear it.  It’s okay, I feel good about.  BUT, it does call for something a little less… frothy (???) on bottom, which is why I went with baring a little skin and the sleek black satin of these boxing shorts.  Quite a nice contrast to the knit of the sweater, don’t you think? I threw in the white boots for good measure really, there was no rhyme or reason to that.  I just liked it!  Toss in a little blue with the bag, maybe some purple on the lips…  The weird thing about this outfit is nothing “matches” per se, but it all goes so well together.  Sometimes these kind of outfits, the ones were you just feel like everything was thrown together, turn out to be the best kind.  It’s almost a mistake, but such a good one if you ask me!

Much ado about PATTERN.

Much ado about PATTERN.

I pretty much have a major thing against anything fashion related from the 80s, except for that sock-over-legging vibe, I’m all over that.  Anyway, this matching set was sitting there, all bright red and definitely from the 80s and for some reason, I had to have it.  I had to.  I had no choice in the matter, it spoke to me!  It’s possibly because the white things kind of look like ice cream cones with a bite taken out of them, or because of the fit?  I have no idea, but it is mine and you will see it again, so learn to love it in all of it’s red peplum-y goodness. To bring the vintage set into the now, I paired it with this amazing parrot necklace from JewlMint.  Have you guys checked them (or any of their “Mint” counterparts), out yet?  With JewlMint, StyleMint, and ShoeMint, they have ALL of the bases for holiday shopping, or for spoiling yourself, covered.  They have really unique pieces at very reasonable prices, you can’t checkout with just one thing, it’s just too hard to pick!  My necklace is from the JewelMint Around the World collection, which is perfectly curated pieces inspired by pieces from all over the world.  You should probably go check them out today, as it IS Cyber Monday, and see what treats they have in store and of course, let me know what you find! To top the whole outfit off, I threw in another Valas find, this amazing clutch!  Kind of pulls the entire outfit together don’t you think?  A brand I will definitely be keeping tabs...
