Wooden Walls

The weather has been blazing these past couple weeks and all I really want to wear is light, cotton fabrics. Wore this out to brunch and shoe-shopping (running shoes that is) this past weekend...
Wearing vintage jewelry- the sterling silver chain bracelet I found at an african shop in Paris!
My shorts are vintage from Kiliwatch, J.crew men's chambray shirt, Miu Miu loafer pumps, Elizabeth and James Zelzah sunglasses, and Coach clutch

How do you manage to look both casual and chic at the same time, lol! Love this look!

blue roses said...

i have an almost identical rhinestone bracelet; i really love the juxtaposition of the glimmering, shining rhinestone with the edgier, heavier sterling metal. looks incredible, ideal pairing!

also, your almost dogmatic loyalty to super high heels is really and truly admirable and impressive.

If there are camels on the other side of your Fatimas' Hand bracelet too, we have the exact same bracelet - it was given to my mum around 40 yers ago as a souvenir from Marocco, and I have always loved it. And now you've given me a really cool outfit suggestion to go with it too. Thanks so much!

Bracelets - too rough. But they emphasize the denim shirt. The combination - a good one. This combination creates a feeling of neglect and vintage.
