Safari Chic

I so lucked up on this outfit. After debating over three other ensembles while getting ready for the Raheem DeVaughn concert, I finally had a spark for an outfit. FINALLY! You know that desperate feeling you have when you’re standing with your bath towel around you, in front of your closet, with no clue of what to wear or the time to ponder? Yeah, that was me. And then the idea for this outfit hit me — and not a moment too soon.

The concert was good– once it got started. 2 hours later. Let me tell you, standing in 4-inch heels for 2 hours irritated me to no end. My feet were mutinous by the time they opened the doors to be seated and I thought for sure they’d detach from body in defiance. But, you know, Raheem sounded good.

Monday Mood-Lifter

I’m never happy about Mondays. Ever. When an unfamiliar face, going to unnamed floor exclaims “Happy Monday!” on the elevator, I cringe. Monday, you rub me the wrong way. But this outfit made Monday feel less cringe-worthy and lifted my mood (by a modicum).

Old Navy’s Boyfriend Skinny Cropped cut of jeans and khakis are perfect for the summer workdays ahead. Currently, my tally of  skinny cropped pants hovers around four, with intentions of growing exponentially (especially now that jeans are on sale for $19!). Throw them on with a blazer, flats, and a printed top and you’ve got an instant work ensemble. I tossed in a few bangles and hoop earrings for good measure.
