I mean, I still have to worry about my girls trying to get with you and steal you on the weekends, but it's okay, I know that's not your fault. You are just really damn good-looking, and I know I have your tags and receipt; you come home to ME. Thank you for being so loyal to me all these years, even through all of my (outfit) changes. You are the one constant in my life...er, wardrobe.
Happy Monday. Yes, I am saying that ironically.
My outfit today is very classic by definition. I've got the iconic Burberry trench, paired with very dark blue saturated skinny jeans (they look black in the photo but they're not), oversized sunglasses, leopard print, and statement boots. I'm put-together, but not overdone.
Here's what I'm wearing:
- Coat: Burberry trench (I rolled up the sleeves)
- Top: Metallic mock-turtleneck in silver leopard print by Michael Kors
- Pants: Rag & Bone denim
- Shoes: Red suede ankle boots by Mojo Moxy (which I paired with black socks, by the way)
- Accessories: Prada sunglasses
- Purse: NONE because I have huge ass pockets in this coat, bitches
An easy way to dress this outfit up more would have been to wear a red lipstick and make-up, but I'm lazier than that, and was just hitting up the mall (begrudgingly) with my kids who were intent on blowing their allowances. Being in a mall while doing #NoBuy365 was not as hard as I thought it would be, in spite of the giant clearance sale signs at the Michael Kors boutique and Nordstrom. I was strong, ladies. I bought NOTHING. Not even a latte. Damn, I sound really bougie right now. I might as well have mentioned my organic local-honey roasted fair trade sunflower seeds that I have in my (designer) purse, and somehow thrown in a French word or two that didn't even need to be in there, while talking about my travels and how my airline credit card put the title Dr. on my card. Oh my, how embarrassing, n'est-ce pas? (No, but seriously, I kind of hate that I've become so bougie over the years. Somebody come remind me that I grew up in the LakeHOOD area of Tacoma, WA, and no one cares about how fresh the arugula is on my $20 salad).
Have a great day, my probably-also-bougie readers! Don't worry, only MOST of the world finds us annoying. See you tomorrow, à bientôt, darlings! We should meet up for gluten-free bagels and dairy-free and locally-sourced coffees sometime soon!
