Either you’re in or you’re out

Urban Outfitters cardigan, bralette and necklace. American Apparel t-shirt. Kova & T leggings. Jeffrey Campbell Doo shoes

I’m still digging the underwear as outerwear trend.  I know this Urban Outfitters corset bra has made its rounds on the blogosphere and I’m glad I re-purchased it after originally returning it.  If you like this trend, definitely head over to Topshop.com because they have a great selection of bralettes.  Just picked up this Silence + Noise cardigan, aka the best lightweight wrap since it’s made of rayon and feels like a super soft blouse.

Did you all notice that my hair is about 5-6 inches shorter?  I’m slowly embracing my medium-length hair and have become re-acquainted with the curling iron.

I’m behind on getting back to comments but promise to catch up tonight.  Thanks so much for your sweet words… they sincerely make my day!  xo

    I just got a similar bralette/corset top and didn’t have the guts to wear it on the outside like this, but now I have a new wave of inspiration. Looks great on you, very rocker chic, esp with those leggings!

    Wow! you look amazing, love that outfit, but the pics are stunning!!!!

    Your sweet/pastel corset’s “Alcôvesque finery side” combined with your leggings “SM CHIC-issime” vibrancy AND this pretty “Fetish peep toe effect” compose such an electrifying cocktail of GLAM . . . That your “epitomesque” Freshness Highly achieves to sublimate !!!
    Hope you’re Well Dear.
