OOTD: a bit of Parisian charm
To all my US readers, hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We spent the afternoon at a friend’s bbq, and ventured into DC at night for the fireworks! My fiance and I would joke that it’s our tradition to always miss the fireworks, but we broke tradition this year and we’re glad we did. It was beautiful! Now that the festivities are over, it’s back to the usual activities, which always includes a little shopping ;)
I’ve had that lace top in my closet since 2006, and for the longest time I didn’t know how to wear it. But then I found these great mid rise shorts from Target yesterday, and immediately thought, this top would go well with that! Good thing I didn’t follow the “if you didn’t wear it for a year, get rid of it” closet rule, or else I wouldn’t have been able to put this look together!
When shopping, I always like to bring a big bag now because shopping bags cost 5 cents each where I live :( I fell in love with the Saint Laurent tote as soon as I saw it and I love how versatile this color is. The bag itself is quite light and very spacious, though it will start to get heavy once you fill it up!
