Yesterday's Tucker post made my heart sing because it was so unexpectedly, off-the-wall perfect. When I was in Canada I wore this and honestly cannot wait to wear it again. It is probably my favorite blog outfit post to date, however this one ranks right up there as well. And yet all 3 are distinctly different. I say all this to say...enter the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm going to throw myself out there and say there's little chance of us spotting Olivia Palermo in yesterday's outfit, but today's? Oh yes - it is Olivia P all the way.
Nothing like yesterday, but still totally my style.
A little closer so you can see the detail on the top and the shorts...
From the side.
Outfit details: Martin+Osa (RIP I'll never recover) - Cashmere Cardigan, J.Crew - Rosette Tank (last winter?), Aritzia - Faux Leather Shorts, J.Crew - Leopard Mary Jane, Melinda Maria - Jewelry, Tom Ford - Sunnies
With the exception of the shorts each of these items has lived in my closet for at least a year, and I'm really proud of that. One of my current goals is to work my closet as much as possible and enjoy what I already have. As for the shorts - one of my "must" stops when I go home is Aritzia. I have scored some major finds in their stores - they carry everything from top contemporary brands to their own private label items and I was determined to lay hands on a pair of their faux leather shorts for fall...of course I arrived in Canada to discover they were entirely sold out nationwide. The Manager of their downtown Calgary store was so kind and tracked down the last pair in the company (I was so excited and grateful!! and they said they should restock in October) in - wait for it - NEW JERSEY. I went all the way home to find my dream shorts on the other side of the country I just came from. Gotta love kismet!! Somethings are just meant to be. I'm sure Olivia would agree.
