Sometimes, I love to get into a funky print and flaunt my booty. Other days, I’m in the mood for something more demure; something that provides coverage for a covert French fry eating operation. The beauty of being a woman and having so many options these days means that I can really dress for my mood which, tends to be similar to the weather: fairly unpredictable.
I was participating in one of my most favorite activities: online shopping. I can't believe I am sharing this but I actually have this weird "window shopping" behavior. Sometimes I just browse and browse because I want to see what's new and other times I get satisfaction out of putting things in my cart and then not buying them at the very last second. It makes me feel like I shopped without really shopping. I think it is equivalent to going into a store and trying on a bunch of things just because. I am sure that I have some form of disorder and there is a psychological diagnosis for me but I will remain blissfully ignorant on it for today.
While I was enjoying my online shopping I stumbled on a cool white tunic from Norma Kamali on the Outnet. The Outnet has literally become one of my favorite shopping sites (owned by Net-A-Porter for those of you who don't know). They have so much good stuff (don't buy everything, save stuff for me). It was paired over black pants and a black crop top and I thought that would look so cool with some of my fitness stuff so I decided to give this bad boy a sporty look. You can wear it while doing a yoga or barre class or you can rock your sports bra in class and then put it back on when heading out the door. Now, I am officially on the hunt for more pieces like this where I can layer a sporty look into something more chic.
I paired this tunic with a very cool pair of Adidas Originals printed pants that I purchased at Urban Outfitters They don't have the pair that I purchased anymore but I linked to another pair that I love and will most likely buy after I finish this post. The best part is that they are $35. I will however say that the material isn't super thick so there could be some coverage issues, the tunic came in handy for more than one reason. Under the tunic, I decided to keep it simple for this look and I wore a Gap Body white sports bra and some knock off Birkenstocks looking shoes that I bought in Queens for $20. I'm kind of into Birkenstocks now. I think that in-spite of something being kind of ugly, when you see it so much, you get kind of conditioned to like it. It's really strange how I feel susceptible to propaganda now that I wrote that statement. I must publicly apologize to my friend who I shamed for wanting a pair and now I am featuring a knock-off look and admitting that I like them (you know who you are). My finishing touches are a Saint Laurent bucket bag that I got for my birthday from my generous and very patient boyfriend (for those of you know personally know me, you understand why I say patient...our apartment has officially turned into my office) and some Illesteva sunnies which I am obsessed with. If you didn't know, with Illesteva sunnies, you can get a funky color glass in them (like mine) and then swap them out when you are ready to get serious (never) for around $30-$35 dollars. Don't quote me on the exact number but I'm close. I tried on my tunic yesterday with some bike shorts and a sports bra and I loved that look too. I have a lot more ideas on how I will wear this puppy and look forward to sharing them with you xoxo
