BCBG Architectural Beading + Casual Printed Pairing

BCBG top, J.Crew skirt, Nordstrom flats (loving these), Prada sunglasses, Anthropologie belt (old)

I’ve had this shirt in my closet for a few weeks (see on instagram here). I am so in love with it that I wanted to really think about the best way to pair it before wearing it. Not to mention that it is a very delicate white silk and would likely stain on first wear, so I really had to get it right the first time. Paired with this all-time favorite shoe-print skirt and a waist cinching belt, I love the more casual vibe given to this otherwise dressy top.

Paired with my years old snakeskin flats (clearly a flat girl at heart) and a high bun.

I mean seriously, this top looks like something that would have appeared on Project Runway. The architecture of the beading is so unusual.

Club Monaco Bubble Hem Top & Gucci Repurposed “Clutch”

IMG_8739-2

Club Monaco top, Paige jeans, Ferragamo pumps, Prada sunglasses, Gucci “clutch”, J.Crew bracelets (1, 2)

I fell in love with this top during a shopping trip with my bestie when she was in town last week. She always pushes me further out of my comfort zone when it comes to clothing (fact: she was the inspiration behind pegged jeans!) and I love her so much for it. The bubble hem and draped fabric of this piece are not usually characteristics I gravitate towards but when worn right, I think it is going to be a staple for Summer.

I chose a slightly wider leg jean/trouser to pair with this top in order to counterbalance some of the heaviness. Neutral, unobtrusive shoes add to the streamlined look and bold sunglasses draw the eye up. I also chose relatively unassuming accessories to allow the top to have all of the focus.

My favorite feature of this top are the side ties. It allows me to adjust the fullness of the top and adds some interest to the sides and away from the heavy drape in the front.

Another fun tidbit of this outfit is this “clutch!” It is actually a sunglasses case I got with a pair of Gucci sunglasses a while back that folds down into the shape you see here. I put a few cards and my lone house key in it for nights out and it acts as the perfect Gucci “clutch,” for free! I highly recommend asking for this sunglasses case the next time you purchase a pair in a department store.

Little Details

IMG_8576-2

Andrew Marc leather jacket (similar), Paige jeans, Madewell top, Nordstrom flats, Sweet and Spark necklace, gifted earrings

A few more photos snapped by my bestie yesterday during our walk around the city. The weather was so beautiful and warm during the day but quickly cooled down as the sun began to set, so I threw on my trusty leather jacket. This outfit is relatively basic but the little details like the pattern on the shirt, “tassel” necklace and gorgeous earrings make me love it.

I bought this necklace from Jillian a few weeks back and have worn it with everything. It even made an appearance at my brother’s wedding rehearsal dinner!

These earrings were a very generous gift from my sister-in-law to her bridesmaids at her wedding a few weekends ago. I was entirely blown away and absolutely love them, they are so beautiful!

Thank you for reading and I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Follow along on my adventures with my girlfriend on Instagram.

Fox Stole Sweater and New Photography

Nordstrom sweater (love this one), J Brand jeans, Superga sneakers

Sorry for the delayed post this morning, ladies! My best friend in the entire world is in town this week from DC and we have spent the last 12 hours sitting on my couch catching up, gabbing away. During one of our rare breaks yesterday she asked if she could snap my pictures for today’s outfit post. I let her play around with the camera, capturing angles/shadows that Cesar typically doesn’t, and I think the result is really cool! Something just a bit different for you all today.
