Elastic Waist Faux Leather Shorts:
Zara (Similar Here)
I've been going pretty minimal (for me) on the accessories lately. I just haven't been wanting to deal with the added weight and noise of an arm party and what not. Today I just went with earrings from House of Harlow - I had others that played up the more tropical aspects of this top but chose to keep it simple with the black leather accents because I felt like a brighter color would still look okay - nice for pictures but kind of too much for regular life. (Sometimes when I get too matchy matchy with large accessories I feel like the Chiquita Banana lady lol.)
My top is from the Prabal Gurung for Target collection, the only thing I purchased from the line. (BTW this top is SUPER itchy to me on top around the neck. H&M had a similarly cut top last year and it was way more comfortable! Also I am wearing an XS for reference) I was definitely tardy to the party on this one (and typically any special release collection lol) but I'm okay with it. The only things I would have wanted to scoop up were the SHOESSS - of course. Butttttttttt I was afraid the quality might not be that great and there was nothing I saw that was so different where I couldn't find it in another brand. : \ (lol #tryingtobeokaywithnotgettingtheshoes)
Which brings me to my, often favorite part, THE SHOES! I purchased these from Zara a few days ago and I love them! They are currently sold out online because I believe they have been out for a while but luckily my local Zara usually has a 37 in stock randomly. They are decently comfortable for what they are but not really something I would consider a walking long distances shoe. It was fine for me out and about to brunch and what not though. (Today was my first day wearing them) I love the look! Classic, simple and sexy.
The faux leather shorts with elastic waist are also from Zara and were under $40. I couldn't find them on the website but I purchased them a couple days ago so they should still be in stores : ) I love the elastic waist and pocket detail! Although these can add a little bulk to the look they are super comfortable and just kind of cool : ) They are also a looser fit and come down a little longer in the back so although they look short I dont feel like my butt is falling out of the back or anything. (I purchased a size M for reference.)
Lastly I am wearing the same Alexander Wang Rocco handbag again so sorry if you are sick of seeing it - just went so perfectly with this outfit I couldn't resist! I love both the Rocco and Rockie (this is the one I have - HERE) for those of you wondering how I feel about the bags. (I've been getting a lot of questions on it.) As far as the weight I don't have a problem with it personally. If you watch my "What's in my Bag" Video you'll see that I don't typically carry too much but I would say this is not an every day bag for those heavy packers out there!
Woot woooooot! Two outfit posts in a row : )
I'm excited! Can't wait till Steve has time to help me take some real pictures of my outfits (at this point I am still relying on screen grabs from video footage -__-) but hopefully you guys are still enjoying the posts none the less.
Thanks so much for reading!
Talk to you soon,
