True Blue

5.22.2012


Patrizia Pepe sweater (similar look here), 
Forever 21 Paris printed tank, 
Vintage belt and necklaces,
Thrifted foldover clutch (similar style here).

Come summer, Micol and I pretty much live in cutoff denim shorts, so when I saw these chino ones at Uniqlo in a bunch of different shades, I quickly scooped them up in hopes of adding a little variation to our warm weather wardrobe. They're a bit more preppy than what I usually go for, but I like the clean, simple cut and imagine that they'll be great to color block with as well.

Here I chose to pair them with varying tones of blue and white for a casual off-hours look, ideal for running errands in the hood. I think it's safe to say that everyone looks awesome in royal blue, and you can never go wrong in a worn out, printed tank (Paris reference optional).

  6. I adore your cardigan and love the way it pulls the outfit together - the pop of color brings out the rest of your details - like the belt. Lovely!
