Neutral Territory

8.30.2012


Valette tank (similar here)
Pinky Otto sailor shorts (similar style here), 
H and M ring, 
Vintage straw clamshell purse,
Vintage beaded necklace, 
Zara rose gold sandals (loving these ones too). 


When I'm at a loss for what to wear, I tend to gravitate towards monochromatic or neutral-toned outfits. It's hard to go wrong pairing together similar shades of greys, browns, or whites.

I stole these shorts from Micol's closet at the beginning of summer, but like a fool, eventually let them get lost in the depths of my closet. Of course, when I finally wore them out the other day, Micol immediately asked for them back. Snap!

Paired with a splattered shirt (btw, what would you call this pattern - cow print? dalmation print?) and a few tribal-inspired accessories, looks like we've got a little urban safari theme going on here!

  2. If I ever hear someone say that neutrals are boring I will give them the link to this post.
    I would wear this instantly, if I had legs like yours that is ;)

    Love,
