Fashion Over Reason: Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

Spring awakening, Fashion Over Reason, Sandro Anaconda black studded leather slip-on sneakers, white destroyed distressed boyfriend jeans

We've been hyper lucky with the weather as of late. Mother Nature has heard our pleas and she's ready to forgive, it seems. It's now been two weekends in a row of absolute glorious sunshine, rosé-on-a-terrace type of clemency, cherry blossom blooms and lay-down-on-a-blanket-in-the-park days. Idyllic, if I may be so bold.

Weekend attire need not be fussy (nothing should be, really, but weekend wear in particular). A loose fitting pair of destroyed jeans in a crisp, refreshing white is a great way to invigorate transitional garb. Keeping things easy in my trusty slip-ons (surely they are going to take me as far into this season as they did in the last), and of course, my ubiquitous stripes. Spring is officially here, all rejoice!

Yes my weekend attire was pretty casual too, I went to Old Westbury Gardens, it was bring your dog day. Had a great time. Love the white jeans with the black moto jacket...very soon I will be breaking out my white jeans. It was great meeting you too!

Freeeeesh. You need to stop inadvertently making me want to buy new pieces by making them look so good. Because yes, a pair of ripped-to-keep-them-casual white jeans sounds like a very good idea right now. So refreshing to see this outfit after a visual overload of Coachella bohemia! Much more my flavour. (Read: I'm just jealous I didn't go)

Here the weather has also improved over the last two weekends. I thought this winter would never end, thankfully we're having great sunny and warm days, it feels great to go on for a walk.

As always, loved the outfit. I have similar jeans and I never know where to wear them with, this has give me great ideas as I have the stripes - I loved them as much as you do - the leather jacket and the denim shirt.
