Here’s a little confession. Sometimes, as bloggers, we feel all this pressure to make sure our outfits are super interesting and exciting. And those casual outfits that you live in don’t always feel like they are good enough or “blog-worthy.” But that’s rather silly. The best part of blogs, after all… is that they’re real… an accurate depiction of what the blogger actually wore that day. While I do admit that I shoot a few outfit posts at a time (it’s just easier as I have a pro take my photo… I can’t exactly just have her follow me around) what I wear here is always actually something that I wore that week or have in the queue to wear later in the week.
But here’s the thing… my style is getting a lot more casual. Now that I’m freelancing, there are days where I am in sweats… all day long. I get dressed up at least two or three days a week for meetings and events, but guys… cut-offs are a wonderful thing. I’ll always love girly dresses + florals, but the outfit in today’s post is one that I could easily wear every. single. day. I actually had to order a second pair of these shorts as I’ve worn them so much… they keep getting stretched out and then I get (seriously) sad when they’re in the wash.
Outfit Details: River Island Jacket (c/o — now on sale!) // Tibi Camisole // Rag & Bone Shorts // Matt Bernson Sandals (c/o — also on sale!) // Mansur Gavriel Clutch // all jewelry borrowed from Vrrai + Oro.
I also want to talk a little bit about my delicate jewels. Aren’t they just the prettiest? They’re all borrowed (except for the earrings which were a generous gift) from Vrai and Oro. Have you heard of them? I’m a huge fan and wrote about them ages ago, but I think of Vrai and Oro as the Everlane of fine jewelry. Amazing, beautiful basic pieces that you will want to wear every single day… without any of the markup. All of their products are made here in the US and they only use solid 14k gold + solitaire diamonds above SI2 quality.
