LA CATRINA de LA Moda: What I Wore: Elevated Basics

Dec 17, 2010

What I Wore: Elevated Basics

coat: TJ Maxx (old)
jeans: BDG Urban Outfitters
boots: Union Bay via Marshalls
bag: Nordstrom Rack
beret/beanie/hat: H&M
necklace: Vintage via Long Beach Antique Market

You can probably tell that I am wearing my favorite pair of jeans and my favorite tee by how faded they are! Note to self: need a new pair of black skinnies.  This is another laid back outfit, where I opted for basics with a little umph.  I can't help but dress down these days, because my new "combat" boots make me want to dress laid back and grunge-y everyday! No lie I have worn these boots five days straight, so glad I got my money's worth!

I have been very chill and laid back all week,
so now I really want to dress up this weekend!
have a lovely weekend

You are doing my head in girl!! I nearly jumped off my seat when I saw you in this gorgeous outfit - the fur jacket! The BOOTS! The beret! Just utterly amazing as usual - I live in my boots too, they just go with everything. So happy to have found you! xo

Yeah, it's hard to dress up with all this rain, no? But I really love what you've done here. The hat and the coat add a little extra something to the comfy basics. And those boots... I can see them dressed up with a frilly dress too :)
