I have a confession










Confession: I really didn't wear this outfit yesterday. Actually, as long as we're being honest here, I probably had it on for eh, I'd say about ten minutes, long enough to snap some photos and sweat a bucket.

Instead, I opted for a much more comfortable, I'm-running-around-with-my-head-cut-off look as the day was spent at a photo shoot for the magazine I work for. What kind of outfit is that you ask? See any of the following: baggy, racer back tank with bandeau bra, skinny jeans and gladiator sandals. Sure, it doesn't sound all too much like a fashion dud, but when there are models lounging about in over the knee boots, military and leather jackets and pretty tulle skirts and dresses, you start to feel a little left out.

This little boat necked striped number though was in fact one of the outfits I had lined up for a model. Perhaps, one day I'll sneak some of those photos on here. Perhaps.

Shirt: Boat neck striped silk shirt, TJ Maxx
Jeans: Skinny Levis
Necklace: Gem embellished bib necklace, Charlotte-Russe
Shoes: Vintage jazz flats (laceless!)

  19. I love this outfit. I especially adore the necklace. I saw a stunning version of this at Anthropologie but too bad, the price tag made me sad. Tempting a DIY though!

  20. Well, if you'll tell a secret, so will I: one of the coolest things about following blogs about what people wear is seeing what they wear when they're actually working their butts off, even if it is a racerback tee and gladiators. It shows that you're real and not a magazine cut-out. So some day you should just post those pics! Not that these are bad in any way. Just sayin.
