I love button-ups and collars. Truly so obsessed.
I threw this outfit together a few weeks ago because I found some inspiration in an outfit I saw Alana Masterson wearing in a photograph from her Instagram. (@lucytwobows)
The crisp white top with the orange/beige colored shorts and black polka dots is all around preppy.
I really enjoy color but it is also nice when you can wear a simple color palette. It is preppy but minimalistic and contemporary all at once.
I find that these kind of shorts, silky and high-waisted, are the best for my figure and body type. They don’t go all the way up my ass and they don’t squeeze my thunder thighs.
I kept it clean with white scrunched up socks and my white low converse.
In matters of styling, I usually would have tucked in the top, either a little just to one side if not all the way, but lately I have been really interested in more boxy shapes and structure. When you tuck in items it crinkles them and makes them more messy. I have also noticed that since my boobs are a little bigger I don’t always like the silhouette it creates when I tuck in my items, but of course, there is also the problem of my boobs making my tops drape further out then I want them to which also looks weird.
It is a hard life.
Either way, I went with something a little different this time and I do like the way that it turned out because it covered up the shorts a little and made it interesting, it is for sure a more of “i don’t care” laid back look than it would have been if I had tucked in the top.
But now to my favorite part of the outfit, the bag. It is my 3rd Baggu bag and it is leather and it is beautiful. I am in love with it.
I purchased it before I left Urban because I knew if I didn’t that I would have regretted it.
My want for a tan leather tote started when I first saw the brand defining ones that they sell at Madewell. I unfortunately do not get a discount there and can’t find it in me to spend $100+ on a purse at this moment so I bought the next best thing. But at this point, I think I love it more than I would’ve loved the Madewell one.
Baggu is a truly amazing brand. The simplicity is impeccable and the quality of leather is out of this world.
So, you can take this post as an ode to my baggu leather tote.
I love it
It holds my things,
It keeps safe the things that I need to live life
But most of all,
It is beautiful
It is comfortable
and it only looks better with time
