I’ve recently been going back through some Pinterest boards to do some reorganizing and I stumbled across this outfit that I pinned a year ago. Then I remember WHY I pinned it – it’s the perfect, every day spring/summer ensemble that is super easy to pull off and even modify if needed.
After all, it’s simply a drapey, navy T-shirt, cropped, white skinny jeans, tan sandals and bag + a statement necklace.
Navy and white can scream nautical or cutesy if you’re too literal. I love that the accessories stay a bit more rugged while still refined. My version opts for one more shot of color in the necklace, but I think that gorgeous green is just perfect while still holding up its job as ‘statement piece.’
A word about the shoes. I have a back problem. This does not lend itself to killer shoes sometimes. But the platform, while looking downright DEADLY, helps here. The entire heel is 5 inches – totally not workable in day to day life. HOWEVER, the 1.25 inch platform really turned five inches into 3.75″ – and that is workable. Mostly. I wouldn’t go to a playground in them, but errands are easily accomplished.
Do not fear the platform, ladies. It is your friend.
