Today’s look is accurately titled ‘weekend uniform’ because I wear a variation of this pretty much every weekend. It is probably the easiest way to look pulled together, but still be comfortable enough to, say, indulge in Sunday brunch without needing to change in to your ‘fat pants’ right after. The key here is the details, a pair of pearl earrings and an up-do make you look like you are dressed up, but the boyfriend jeans, t-shirt, and trench are super comfy and really casual at the same time. I had to add my new Isabel Marant pumps that I scored from the gilt city warehouse sale, because they are so chic and at the same time (going with the theme of today’s post) really comfortable. This look would go just as well with a pair of flats, which I often do. I prefer pointed toe, because it looks a little more polished than a ballet flat, and I believe it lengthens a leg just as much as a nude pump would.
Another trick I learned, with boyfriend jeans, if you roll them up just to the middle of your calf, that is probably the most flattering length. Sometimes with a boyfriend jean rolled to your ankle you can just look a little frumpy.
By the way – I just opened up a little shop on instagram, @shopzahrascloset – and I am slowly adding pictures of things in my closet for sale. Check me out and follow if you want to be the first to know of what I am selling! I did this because my closet it just getting ridiculously full and I find stuff in there that is amazing, in perfect condition, many still with tags, that I just don’t get a chance to wear. I am also constantly shopping and I know that isn’t going to end any time soon- so i thought this would be the answer! The response has been amazing, i sold 3 items within just hours of posting!
Tonight is the night! I’m hosting a soiree with Zadig & Voltaire in Chicago. The theme of the evening is My Creation, a unique concept that I explore in this video. My Creation is a fantastic investment piece to any wardrobe, a cashmere sweater that is totally customized and personalized to your taste. It is also a great gift idea for the person who has it all, or anyone you are trying to impress with your thoughtfulness.
There are still a couple of spots available so please make sure to RSVP to Chicago@ZadigetVoltaire.com.
