I decided I wanted to put together an outfit with some pieces I hadn't worn on the blog for a while and holy crap, I managed to do it. See for yourself:
My jeans are a pair of Paige trouser jeans I bought years ago at Marshalls while visiting Marianne. I am kind of amazed they still fit. It's hard right now to find trouser jeans but this NYDJ sailor pair is really cute! I dig those. I also like the shape of this pair of Paige high rise jeans, but they're not quite trouser-cut. Oh, wait, LOFT has a cute pair and Anthropologie has a really nice pair on sale! I stand corrected. (Aren't we tired of wearing skinny jeans all the time? I am.)
My top is a cheap old thing from Ross that cost me nothing. I don't even know what brand it is! I just really loved the color and y'all know I like a snake print. I'm sure it's long gone but this Bobeau top is a more subtle version and Equipment does a nice job with snake print. And hey, why not shorts? Or a python print dress? Why not indeed.
I'm still pretty obsessed with my Banana Republic Fringe ID pendant! It's just got a good weight to it and a little sparkle doesn't hurt. This mixed-media cuff would pair nicely with it and there's also this Leather Fringe craziness! Hmm. I'm also wearing my Cluse La Bohème watch and a cute handmade bracelet. More deets:
I'm carrying my Cambridge Satchel twist lock bag in oxblood but you can get the black version at Shopbop right now with the F&F discount! They also have the pushlock version in oxblood, just saying. Take advantage of that sale! Eep. The big ole sparkly ring I'm wearing is Alexis Bittar and came in my Box of Style. He makes cool stuff.
I threw my favorite slouchy Eileen Fisher cardigan over the whole thing so I don't freeze to death. There's a nice ribbed version in the same color on sale at NM right now and this one at Nordstrom (also on sale) is nearly identical to mine. Eileen Fisher is pricey but the quality is really good.
I blew out this picture a bit so you can see that I'm actually wearing jeans. And hey, cute Chie Mihara shoes hiding underneath! This is normally the place where I'd tempt you with CM pumps on sale but there aren't any I like. How about sandals? These are super cute and remind me of a favorite pair of mine. I also love the color of this pair. And really, we're all just going to buy rubber Birks, right?
