Letting Loose

9.26.2012


Reiss button-down, 
Zara harem pants, 
Vintage crossbody bag and wrap-around belt,  
Vintage aviator glasses (similar style here), 
Misc jewelry (H&M, vintage, souvenirs), 
Zara pumps.

I think we've all been there: you're really excited for the new season, but when you dig out your wardrobe from wherever you stored it, suddenly nothing you own seems that exciting anymore. I'm definitely at that point. And so was Lauren until she went on a little shopping spree and picked up so many new (and unexpected!) items that I'm having trouble not following suit. A Zara trip may be in my near future.

I can't pull off these harem pants, but Lauren does so in style with a tailored, black button-down and sleek, plum pumps with an unexpected ankle cuff. And please, can we all give a cheer that the pointy toe is back? I'm ready for it.

xx, M

  20. I have a lightweight pair of harem pants that I like to wear occasionally, mostly as a beach cover up, but I'm not sure if I could pull off this look. Either way Lauren looks stunning pulling it off herself! And like I said on twitter, I LOVE this purse!

  22. These pants are fabulous – I may need to pick up a pair asap, since I've been feeling a bit uninspired by last year's fall items too.
