what i wore...

January 31, 2012

 // photo's by the fashion gal // 

i said it before and i'll say it again(!!!)... i LOVE mixing n' matching Masculine & Feminine pieces together to make one killer cool look. i do! i love it! i think it makes life worth living! ok ok, well let's not take it too far. but seriously, when done right i think there is something {slightly} sexy about a gal that doesn't show all her goodies and instead sports a crew neck tee while leaving a little more to imagination! your boy-toy may not agree with me, but OH WELL! in a perfect wold, i would wear a fitted white crew neck boyfriend tee with at least 2-3 chunky necklaces layered on top of one another, EVERYDAY! but that is neither here nor there...  yesterday i threw on my favorite cigarette skinnies, my favorite gold belt, a brightly striped sweater, and my boy boating shoes! literally, they are boy shoes... and i LOVE them! 

*little style tip: i was shopping with a client this past week and we wanted to get her into a pair skinny-jeans (aka. shinnies)... but she always felt that skinnier jeans made her look short. SO, i folded about 4" of fabric up (at the ankle of her jean) & made them into an instant cigarette fit!! a cigarette fit is when your pants fit slim & sit right above your ankle. AND poof (!) she instantly looked taller & felt fabulous in her first pair of skinnies! Success.

striped sweater: Old Navy! // white layering tank: Michael Stars // skinnies: Target! (i love these, i wish i bought 100 pairs!) // boating shoes: Clarks // navy head scarf: vintage // kelly green scarf: vinatage // straw tote: LF // silver rings: Mexico // sunnies: Ray-Bans // gold belt: a sample sale from years ago // green stud earrings: Melissa Joy Manning // nail polish: OPI ("Lincoln Park After Dark"... looks great on toes too!)

You look so cute! I seriously love it. Never knew what "cigarette" jeans were, thanks for explaining that. I think they look perfect with the boat shoes, and the belt and top are a perfect complement. It's just a great look! I love mixing in guy's stuff with girlier pieces. I would definitely pick skinnies if I could only wear one thing forever! (well, skinnies with a top :)

Jackie-- Good call... Skinnies, with a top!! i love it ;)

Alicia-- The skinnies from Target are called "Jeggings" yup, jeggings. They say "Jeggings" on the outside tag and on the actual inside tag they say "Fit 3". One way you can tell the difference between these and the other jeans at Target is... these have a button that actually buttons, but no zipper! I hope this helps!!

ps: I bought them {probably} 6 months ago, but DID see them there last month! good luck!
