standby


Shirt: Zara (similar style here); Pants: J. Crew (would kill for this pair though!); Shoes: Christian Louboutin; Bag: Zara (similar style here); Sunglasses: Fred Flare; Jewelry: H&M necklace, Emerson Made necklace, Michael Kors watch, assorted gifted bangles, Asos spike bracelet

I've probably said this before, but I'll reiterate it again: This is my kind of no-fuss outfit: cropped trousers, somewhat sheer patterned blouse and classic heels. It's the MVP, if you will, of my outfit repertoire and never fails to leave me feeling pulled together with time to spare in the morning.

And these pants? Well they're almost in a league of their own at this point -- quite the unsung hero of my fancy pant collection

    1. Great question! I've been getting a few requests for this trickle in since I've cut my hair. What would be the most useful? A video tutorial or step by step photos?

    2. I think either one would be helpful, so I guess whichever would be easier for you to do! I can't wait! Your hair does always so perfectly curled :)

    1. Hi lady! I do actually wear most of the outfits I post here to work. I work in a pretty creative environment though on a fashion-specific team so that certainly helps. Of course, there are days I feel a tad overdressed but I tend to really like those days! Thanks for the kind words and hope this helps!

  28. Your standby is most definitely pulled together. You look great. My standby has been the dress with blazer combo for a long time.

  36. This outfit is seriously kind of bad ass. I can't even describe how much I love it. I think you may have just given me the courage to try a pair of hot pink trousers.
