Fashion Over Reason: Summer nights

Summer nights

Ok so i know i haven't done an outfit post in super long, but here is one now! This is one of the tops i recently picked up in nyc and had the occasion to wear it at my friend's restaurant opening the other night. I instantly fell in love with it cause it had a very feminine and vintage feel and it's the softest silk ever.

Also, i've recently preached about mary janes and so here's my spin on them.

With my lovely roommate Vanessa

Top - Kate Moss for Topshop
Leather skirt - Vintage
Shoes - Ralph Lauren Collection

You look so fantastic here, love the look of the dainty floral shirt with a tough leather skirt! And the shoes - are there what it would look like if a clog and a maryjane had a baby? Love the studding detail around the sole!! These are quite an interesting pair of shoes (in a good way!)
