DARK WASHED












HIGH NECK TOP - TOPSHOP
MOM JEANS - TOPSHOP
SHOES - VAGABOND

Hi all! Summer is properly here now, and I'm back with a post that's quite different from the last one. Those wide-legged palazzo pants made me feel like a diva/like I was truly channeling Solange, but let's face it - I'm a short girl, and those pants are only going to get use on special occasions where I can risk breaking my neck in 5 inch heels! I decided to come back to something a bit more practical and casual, so here we are. If you're anything like me, you're more cold than hot no matter the season, and if that's the case this may appeal to you. I'm one of those people who can tolerate long pants and jeans during the summer, so these mom jeans were a no-brainer to me when they went on sale. I also can't seem to resist dark/wintery colors, and I knew this would be a perfect addition to my morbid wardrobe!

I feel very much in my element again now that I've returned to dressing like a moody boy. If you don't already own mom jeans, this is me highly suggesting that you grab a pair. They're high waisted so they go with a lot of crops for summer, and they lend a throwback 90's feel to almost any outfit. If you think you'll shrivel up and die in the heat wearing these, I know Topshop and loads of places do a mom short, so you can still get the effect without feeling like you're being torched alive. This top is more of a fitted style, so if you're looking for a looser fit I would size up - what I love about it is how many colors it comes in and how affordable it is! It's sexy and effortless, so if you're looking for a bit more skin without the crop style I would highly recommend this top!

The denim jacket is just something I threw on for the double denim look, but definitely not necessary for the warmer weather. If you're somewhere where it's a bit cooler, then this works out perfectly for you! This is a Levi's denim jacket that I got some time ago on sale, and it's a men's XS so that's why the fit is a bit more oversized. The link above is to the women's version, which I might have preferred if I didn't love looking like I'm being swallowed alive by my clothing! I gathered all these kitschy pins from places like Urban Outfitters and along my travels, and I hope to keep customizing this jacket with pins and patches and all that good stuff.

Hope you liked this post, let me know what your thoughts are down below and stay tuned for some more possible boyish/man repelling looks in the next one!
