Adrien: Sometimes I Go Out, I Swear.

I feel like my outfits have slipped into winter boring-ness so I thought I'd post something I wore out to an actual party. Lest you think I'm dressing up - haha. Not really. I am just employing Kim France's Party In A Top method of dressing up. But it's good - really all you need is a fun party top and the rest can be whatever. (GOD I AM SO LAZY.) Behold: 

I bought this top in December (I posted about trying it on here) but I never actually posted the outfit I'd described wearing if I bought it, so here it is! I don't generally spend so much (even with a discount) on a single blouse but I've worn this one for several occasions and it always makes me feel fancy. I'm wearing it with my Madewell coated jeans which are a staple in my closet. Madewell isn't carrying them right now but this pair of Joe's looks really good and this pair by Blank NYC is very on sale. Also, H&M has a pair suuuuper cheap. (I won't tell.) 

Anyway, since buying this top I am now a FIRM believer in the "party top." I almost bought this one from Anthro because the color is so amazing and something like this fun top would also totally work. Marianne mentioned that she really likes Loft's lace tops for dressing up. Something like this black lace top or this wrap top. I also like the idea of a simple blousy top in a great color working well in this capacity, like this one at BR. On to details:

My giant tassel necklace is from Ann Taylor from a million years ago but it still gets some love now and then. I love a tassel! This is the one I'm currently dying to own (my friend Nina has it and it's beautiful) but something like this Sole Society necklace is much easier on the budget. But of course, the best tassel is always Lulu Frost. Always. 

I wear these Madewell Lucien boots too much but they're comfortable and go with everything. I mean, what am I supposed to do? They're long sold out but the Regan style is pretty similar. My bag is a recent Poshmark purchase - a J.Crew Signet bag with the snakeskin key tag. It fits a surprising amount and is an easy little crossbody. They seem to be gone from the site right now, but there are lots available secondhand. 

Finally, because I am dumb I threw my AllSaints leather jacket over everything just to see what it looked like. Too much shiny, that's what it looked like. Hmmph.

  1. I love the jacket with the top - if the pants weren't shiny (just black skinnies maybe?) it would work!
