Slouchy Pants + Boxy Top

Slouchy Pants + Boxy Top

This outfit is so funny to me, I honestly hated it when I first put it on.  I think it was something with the colors, but the shapes… The shapes are what made me leave it on (sans my boyfriends approval).  The colors grew on me after a minute! Or maybe I just excused it because I loved the slouchy drop crotch pants with the boxiness of the top.  Either way, now that I look at it I’m not sure why I didn’t like the colors together, specifically the blue in the shirt and the green khaki of the pants.  It is different, and not something I would normally put together, but that’s what getting dressed is all about right?  Trying new things!  Well, that’s what it should be about any way.   I think the black sandals and bag definitely help pull the look together.  I felt like the shoes had to be a little funkier to match the top, and the boxy clutch pulled the black leather up to the top section of the outfit.  In the end I am happy with it.   What do you think, would you wear it?  Have you had outfits that you initially don’t like but after giving it a minute you grow to love it? Or am I just crazy? Either way, C-O-O-L.  And happy Monday everyone!  Top: Fiery Finish Vintage // Pants: Zara // Shoes: Zara // Bag: Vere Verto Photography by Eli...
Leather Shorts + Long Legs

Leather Shorts + Long Legs

Back at the leather shorts game over here, despite feeling a bit sketched out about them in general.  How perfect are they with nude sandals though?  This outfit all started with wanting to wear this white collared top again, but this time tied up!  I knew high waisted shorts would be perfect, but denim would be too predictable.  So out came these suede babies!  Besides, I need to get some wear in with them before the actual heat starts, as leather shorts on a hot day are NOT ideal.   After loving the shorts and top together, I wanted something to really lengthen my legs.  Nude is the best way to do just that!  These sandals wouldn’t have worked with this outfit if they weren’t nude, because platforms in general don’t elongate the leg.  Throw in the nude straps though and there you have it.  Legs for days!  Well maybe that isn’t true, but they still look longer than normal.  Pop on a cute little bag, I prefer one that spices the outfit up a bit (as always).  Colored tassels?  DUH.
