Okay you guys. I just have to tell you about when Charlie and I shot this look. We were running out of decent locations to shoot this day, but Charlie had this awesome idea of going to the train station. I would have never thought of that but I seriously loved this spot. So we’re taking pictures, whatever… and then we walk around the side of the building and see 3 dead birds. IT WAS SO GROSS. Also goes to show that pretty little outfit pics are not always so glamorous, hahaha. Sorry if that was a little TMI for you guys, but I just thought the story was too funny not to share.
On a totally different, less disgusting, and more exciting note-tomorrow is the first day of public access to the Nordstrom anniversary sale! What whaaaaat! In preparation for this, I’m giving away a $50 e-gift card to Nordstrom! You may have already seen this on Instagram or Facebook, but the rules are super simple. Make sure you’re following me on Instagram and Facebook and be sure to subscribe for emails! Simple as that! I’ll be announcing the winner tomorrow, at 12:00pm EST.
This utility vest and cutoffs combo is perfect for a lunch date or some shopping. It’s casual and comfortable while still being very stylish. It’s actually a pretty simple look, too, which is the best part. I’m wearing some classic cutoffs and a plain white t. Throw a good layer (like this utility vest) on top and you’ve got yourself a trendy yet classic look.
I wore a pair of low heeled, peep toe booties to keep things a bit feminine. My mini sea foam green bag was a nice, subtle contrast to the outfit. And I wore my favorite sunglasses (sorry if y’all are getting sick of these, but I’m not, sooo… hehe) and some simple layering necklaces to give things just a little extra pizazz!
How do you guys turn a classic look into something trendy? Do you think adding a cool layer is a good way to do that? Or do you like to accessorize more? Hope you enjoyed the look! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway while there’s still time and enjoy the end of your week!
