what I’m wearing…
Karen Walker sunglasses // NARS lipstick in Lana // Who What Wear under $50 denim jacket // Chanel bag borrowed from & available at The Vintage Contessa // striped shirt // similar white cropped jeans // Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats //
I think it’s safe to say that a Chanel bag goes with pretty much everything, so my outfit got a major upgrade when this nude Chanel bag joined the party. Borrowed form The Vintage Contessa, this nude and gold Chanel dream was very hard to give back after I had my fashion fun with it. As classic as the day is long, this bag would go with pretty much everything in your closet. Ugh…may have to make it mine after all, if you don’t beat me to it.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of a denim jacket (most recently seen here & here), and this under $50 denim topper has been in heavy rotation this spring. Right now it’s at the tailor getting hemmed a couple of inches, and I’m missing it so much. I loved throwing it over my black jumpsuit, and I’m excited to wear it while traveling this summer.
About 1/4 of my shirt wardrobe is made up of striped shirts, so it might seem funny that I added this red striped shirt and this light blue slouchy t-shirt to my closet this spring. In my defense, I purged about 5 striped shirts from my closet in the last few months, so I had room.
For me, a versatile striped shirt is made of a quality fabric, has skinny, consecutive stripes and a slightly slouchy fit. One of my all-time favorite striped shirts is this Saint James navy stripe (seen here, here & here and in countless other posts) and I’m seriously crushing on the new tan striped version…NEED!
