Cool Girl

I can admit it – I felt like a cool girl wearing this outfit. I love simplicity of the white blouse, black skirt, and cooler-than-cool leopard loafers. And speaking of cooler-than-cool, Nahal and I did this shoot on her rooftop deck, and it was awful. We were once step away from being bagged and labeled as popsicles of the haute variety.

I’ve been on a quest for a white blouse for some time (and by some time, I mean like 3 years). I have some silky white blouses, but I wanted a classic cotton or linen one. I found this one at Topshop recently and I love it. The fit is great, and I don’t have to wear a tank under it to hide my bra. That was a main selling point; I don’t understand why blouses are always see through. How are we supposed to wear those to work?  It’s so annoying.

So I also wanted to call your attention to this J. Crew clutch I’m using—I got it off of Thredup (c/o), an online consignment retailer. They have great secondhand clothes, accessories, and shoes, and they have lots of kids clothing too! The price is right, as is the sustainability aspect. I’m actually multi-tasking right now and ordering a clean out kit right now to send in some of my clothes and bags for consignment. I always have aspirations of becoming an ebay sensation or aiming much lower, to actually walk to a consignment store to pawn my wares, but I’m thinking dumping them in a bag and having someone else market them for me is right up my alley!

Hope you’re all doing well!

Stay cool,
