Spring/Summer Look Book 4 - Playing it Safe





Safe does not equal boring






I think by now you all will see my basic wardrobe staples
Winter add jeans, fall add leggings, spring is all about skirts, but in summer Im all for the shorts
Tops always seem to stay the same
Sheer loose tops, blazers, jewelry, and insert any of the above for the season
Flats of any kind are the only things I really wear on my feet

This outfit is pretty conservative and preppy, but remains youthful regardless of my collar being so high. A lot of people at work consider this top for nuns, I like it! Especially with ripped shorts
(definitely not for work!)

This necklace is my favorite!
This blazer is also a personal favorite of mine. I wear it about 4x a week. It's the perfect size for my shape, and the ruched sleeves make it casual yet still appropriate for work
Add some sunnies and you tend to look pretty effortless

Hair (not seen) but still with the top knot! -Shows off the necklace, and won't make the sunglasses on your face seem like too many accessories going on around your face

I really don't tend to follow the fashion rules with regards to gold and silver jewelry, do you guys mix and match also?


Collar Top: American Apparel
Blazer + Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Belt: H&M
Shorts: Abercrombie and Fitch
Flats: J Crew (I have been LOVING these)
Bag: LV Speedy 25
Watch: Michael Khors
Rings: Assorted
Nails: Essie's Borrowed Blue with OPI Silver Shatter
Ray ban Sunnies - Glued to my face everyday for summer!

  9. Love this outfit! I also mix my metals together when it comes to jewelry. I think it looks strange when people wear a bunch of matching jewelry pieces (matching earrings, ring, necklace, bracelet). It's so boring!

  13. I love how conservative and pretty the top half is paired with the distressed jean shorts! I always wondered if J.Crew flats were worth it (kinda pricey imo) but apparently they are!

  14. My bad. When I said "conservative and pretty," I mean "conservative and preppy," although it is also very pretty :)
