I caved

After a month of serious debate and questioning, I finally caved and bought some H&M sunglasses that are similar to these. I don’t know why I take so long to make purchases sometimes, but I guess deep down I knew that after seeing them for a month and still wanting them, I should just buy them. They’re been on my head ever since. Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse (underneath): Banana Republic via Goodwill
Vest: Goodwill
Shorts: Charlotte Russe (similar)
Flats: DIY Sam & Libby
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Sunnies: H&M
Necklace: H&M 

Mixing textures in an outfit is truly what gives an outfit interest (besides accessories, of course). What I love about this particular mix of textures is the subtlety: the lace shorts, the wool vest, the patent and reptile-texture of my bag and the silk and smoothness of my blouse. Even basic black can become exciting when different textures come into play.
