You guys, I CANNOT believe we are halfway through the year already. Moreover, I can’t believe it’s almost July, and this is my first outfit post of 2018 where I’m breaking out the shorts. Happy freaking Summer, pals!
I think this is one of my favorite outfits I’ve put together in awhile. For someone who can’t resist an edgy look, but with a feminine touch, this ruffled, leather beauty you see before you is hands down the top for you. I picked this ‘lil mama up at Crossroads Trading in Chelsea. The store carries a fairly balanced mix of vintage and more current, but used pieces. It gave me a lot more to work with when sifting through the racks.
I paired the top with my new belted shorts from Mango. I feared they wouldn’t look flattering, but the belt has the ideal amount of holes to perfectly cinch at the waist in all the right places. I also love the length, as it is definitely work appropriate. SCORE.
To really round out the look’s edginess, I threw on the Free People boots you all know far too well. As for jewelry, I can’t get enough of Mejuri’s simple, everyday-wear pieces! Always and forever a fan of that brand. <3
