blushandbangs 's Thoughts:

This outfit has a slightly Parisian feel to me. I can envision myself walking through St. Germain, baguette in hand, lipstick in place, big sunglasses adorned…le sigh. I’ll share something with you all, because you may as well know it now: I’m a bit of a francophile. I almost even moved there nearly two years ago…part of me wishes I did, just to have the full experience while I’m in my 20s. But, alas, perhaps there is still time for me yet my darlings ;)

In regards to this outfit, I love the comfy, cozy, chunky knit sweater. I think my favorite part is that it’s cut slightly shorter in the front and curves longer in the back. Perfect to sport with leggings, a leather skirt, or even shorts. Here, I’m wearing it over a skater skirt, and I love the peek-a-boo look it gets from under the sweater.

Once again I’m wearing my holey tights, because now their accidentally unkempt nature has grown on me. Much to my mother’s dismay, I’m sure, lol! These tights I buy in 2-packs from H&M because they’re the perfect sheer-ness (yes, that’s my official term). And of course, I’ve worn my trusty black fedora, since it always finds a way to fit itself into my outfits. Gotta appreciate its moxie (don’t you wish people used that word more?)

The saddle oxfords are a bit of a statement in the outfit. Side note – I love oxfords, they’re just adorable perfection in a shoe. With the saddle shoes, I’m particularly attracted to their classic nature. They feel vintage and fresh simultaneously, with a cheeky twist. Kinda like me. Or so, I’d like to believe ;)
