disco days

This is what I call a modern disco look. No lamé here, just a cute polkadot midi and some metallic sandals is what I wore for an ode to disco. And of course a leather jacket, ALWAYS a leather jacket.

I spotted these beauties on Asos and knew I had to have it. They look similar to the Gucci cross strap sandals but for a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately they sold out, but fear not. Zara also makes a similar version here.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine was busy but very productive. I had a lovely day date with my sister and we got our mother's day shopping done. I can't wait to have some family time next weekend. I'm avoiding going out to an overly crowded restaurant this year and will be planning an in-home brunch for my mom. Lots of planning to do, lot of hours on pintrest awaits.

all tied up

Draped and laced up, two major elements I love at the moment. Thank you Light in the box for sending me this super soft draped top. It's such an easy piece to throw on and fits perfectly in my predominately black wardrobe. The criss cross detail at the front is an interesting twist (pun intended) and adds a surprise element.

I used to wear these Ann Demeulemeester heels often a few years back. I moved to a few different apartments and had them packed up and thought I lost them for a while, which I was pretty sad about. Then the other day when I visited my parents, I saw them sitting in my mom's shoe shelf and I was elated! I have no idea how she got a hold of them, but no questions were asked. I was just so happy to be runited with my babies. Expect to see a lot more of these bad boys again in the future.

Happy Monday! Keeping it simple today. A cami and baggy trouser is an outfit formula that always works for my body type, so it's only natural that I wear it over and over again. Also, I've revived my love for the simple black belt. It adds a boyish and refined touch to any look.

Believe it or not the metal choker necklace I'm wearing is my boyfriend's old necklace. It was a relic of his awkward teenage past, which is kind of adorable. I'm quite happy it found a new home in my jewelry box because it's definitely a new favorite of mine.

These navy Zara pants are a lifesaver. I love how oversized it is, making it a perfect candidate to pair with itty bitty camis. The juxtaposition of oversized and shunken is a look I really love. Definitely going to try these with a crop top next. Would you wear oversized trousers? What are some of your favorite ways to style a baggy trouser?
