Good morning, fashionistas! Today I’m talking about my favorite look this week, and Wednesday was the winner!
I never lay out my clothes the night before, but I should seriously start considering the option. I’m always scrambling in the morning (after I hit the snooze button
a few several times) to put together the perfect outfit, make my hair and face look presentable, and manage to eat something. It’s a struggle, lemme tell ya. But Wednesday’s outfit kind of just fell into place for me – love when that happens! Although it’s still summer (hello August, when did you get here?), I loved this black, white, & red look, and I think the knotted button down and the sandals still give it a summery feel.
I thrifted the Ralph Lauren gingham top, and it’s a bit oversized. For a fun, yet office-friendly look, I knotted my button down to make it appear more fitted and cuffed the sleeves. I paired it with red lips and toes, my black glitter sandals, and these black Old Navy khakis. The khakis were originally purchased for my brief stint as a barista earlier this year, but have since transitioned into my internship wardrobe as a necessary basic. This liquid lipstick from Stila is AMAZING. I received it in a Birchbox back when I was a subscriber, but I probably wouldn’t buy it because of the pricepoint. For the duration of this tube, however, I’m enjoying living in the lap of luxury. Seriously -it stays on all day (even through meals) and goes on easily & smooth.
Although my gingham top was thrifted, my sandals are from last summer, and we all know Phillip Lim bags for Target sold out in about 2.5 seconds, I managed to find some similar pieces so you can rock this classic look too! I also encourage you to scour local thrift shops for pieces like this RL button down – I’ve also found a pink striped OCBD that I’m continually swooning over. What was your favorite #ootd this week?
