This weekend, I was thrilled to have my baby sister in town for a visit. She palled around with me to some of my favorite spots in Brooklyn and Manhattan, including Brooklyn Flea, Smorgasburg, and a stop for brunch at Sisters in Clinton Hill. We were #blessed with some truly beautiful -- dare I say, fall-like -- weather for our adventures, which allowed me to bust out this ensemble unseasonably early.
I have literally been living in these vintage Seafarer jeans lately. After months of scouring the internet, I finally found the elusive tiny-waisted, long-inseamed pair of my dreams and have been pairing them with everything from tees and sneakers to silk blouses and platforms, as seen here. Their ultra high-waist is perfect with cropped tops and their gently flared shape is flattering and elongating.
Australian label Réalisation is a perennial favorite of mine. The clothes they make, like this tie-front silk blouse, are a testament to quality of materials and simplicity of cut. They also have a knack for print -- I absolutely love the subtle star-print on this top and am currently dying over the cherry-print version they just released.
I've been giving statement hoops another chance, having recently scored a few groovy pairs from Urban Outfitters, and I have to say I like the ease with which a good hoop can finish off an outfit. I also love the way they look peeking out from behind a long wall of hair. For this ensemble, I chose these gold star-shaped hoops, a nice tie-in with the print of the blouse. To keep with the two-tone nature of the outfit, I kept the rest of my accessories of a golden hue, selecting these well-loved platforms and a timeless shoulder bag. And, of course, I topped it all off with my favorite Ray-Ban sunnies.
