dressed down

I wore these trousers with a bright orange top to the conference in New York last week and the whole ensemble felt a little dressy. I’m known for always being a bit overdressed, but at the end of the day I’m a denim girl. The other night I actually slept in my favorite pair of jeans. I know, I know, that’s weird. But in my defense I was so comfortable I actually just fell asleep … on accident. I swear. Anyway, I decided to add a more casual piece to prep and dress these beautiful brocade knickers down. I love the way this chambray top provides a bit of tomboy style to these ultra snazzy slacks (how many ways can I say pants in this post?). With the heels and my favorite studded fringe bag I’m ready for just about any occasion.

[i promised to show you my new E.Kammeyer tassel bracelet so here she is! it wraps around about three times and i love how the gold tassel hangs off to the side.]

[big ups to my husband for this post. we took these photos on what i really think was the coldest day of the year. my hair was blowing away, my toes were frostbitten and Chris could barely feel his fingertips. that’s what i call love.]

    Love the top. I am the complete opposite though, I do not like denim jeans very much at all (on me that is, they look great on most people) however, I am really into the demin/chambray tops and dresses for women this spring and summer season. I just want to wear some with some bright fun heels or sandals… oh winter be over soon!

      I am with you on the end of winter and bright, fun sandals. I’m already on the hunt for teals and other brights to get me out of this snowy funk! Thanks for visiting!

    […] a little bit), but I crave a life where I could wear denim all day every day. I’ve already confessed to sleeping in my jeans so this can’t come as a shock to you. This Zara dress, however, is a breath of fresh air. […]
