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!
I have finally found the perfect tote. For months upon months, I have scoured department stores, street racks and vintage stores for a bag that fits all my needs, both practically and asthetically speaking. Today, I was perusing through simplelovely.blogspot.com, and came across a photo of the Mid City Tote from Foley + Corinna. My reasons for why this bag is perfect are three-fold…
1. The mousey-gray color is amazing and goes with everything.
2. The opening of the bag comes up high enough so if slipped on your arm or up on your shoulder you don’t have to worry about it dangerously hanging open while standing on the subway.
3. It can stay unfolded and be used as a hand-held bag, or it can fold down into a hip little shoulder-slung number, fitting perfectly with whatever type of outfit you might have on.
And, here it is folks…please try to not to drool.
