RayBan Sunglasses / Mens Button down (borrowed from “A”) / Banana Republic “Heritage” Sleeveless Trench (available in stores) / Levi Cutoffs (stolen from Dad) / Vintage Mens Braided Belt / Foley & Corinna Mid City Tote in Poppy (gifted) /Cole Haan Air Delfina Back Zip Wedges
***I have had a love affair with Foley + Corinna bags ever since I wrote this post back in 2008, which was my 7th post! Ever since then, I have dreamed of owning a Mid City tote, and last week, my dream came true. Don’t you just adore the cheerful color? Surprisingly, it works as an excellent neutral and goes with everything in my closet. Happiness all around!***
This outfit came together sort of randomly, but was the perfect ensemble for a relaxing catch-up-brunch with my dear friend Amanda this past Saturday morning. We chatted over eggs and coffee and then took some quick outfit shots. I love the title of this post because it’s so fitting—the majority of the pieces are “borrowed” from the men in my life—but it was in fact, thought up by my quick witted said friend.
I really like wearing oversized items (“A” is not a huge fan of this, or shoulder pads in blazers) but know that sometimes too oversized can overwhelm my shape and I end up looking frumpy. But this time around, I think I managed to balance out this casual, comfy look by tailoring it with a slightly cinched trench and girly green wedges. Oh, and of course my new, very favorite tote. Happy Monday!
