Cuffs & Cutouts

It started raining just as my mom and I were going outside to take some outfit pictures so I had to settle for indoor pics. Bummer! I guess it has barely rained here this summer, but it’s rained each day I’ve been here. I swear I’m a walking rain dance or something.

I wore this outfit to run a couple of errands Saturday morning. (Don’t fret, I’ll tell you a little more about those errands in the next couple of days!) This top is sheer, but not sheer enough that you have to wear a cami. It’s great! So comfortable, especially in the heat.

Top: Akira Chicago
Jeans: BDG (HATE these jeans. Need a new pair of skinnies ASAP. Suggestions? Probably Paige, Citizen or JBrand)
Shoes: Michael Antonio
Watch: Michael Kors (similar)
Ring: Macy’s
Earrings: Tiffany & Co. (similar)

This is a pretty basic outfit and there’s not too much going on. My mom even asked if I was going to add some accessories. Just keeping it simple, I guess!

      They’re extremely high waisted and just fit kind of funny in the waist. Super annoying!

    Buy Paige. They are super super comfy and don’t stretch out too much. Check loehmans if there’s one by you because they always always have a good selection. I bought two pairs there. The only pair I bought full price ended up being there a couple months later.
