I haven't done one of these selfie posts in quite a while, but I didn't get the chance to ask a second party to capture this outfit, yet I still thought it was worthy of showing you guys for the mere fact that it demonstrates how to be versatile with your clothes. Allow me to elaborate: this Mexican embroidered tunic is actually a dress(!). It's a great summer number and, while worn on its own, it can have an overwhelming (and a tad see-through) beachy vibe, it also doubles as top, in which case elevates it on the chic scale.
Still very dressed down thanks to my trusty Refind Denim cutoffs (I basically live in these), the single sole high-heeled mules, aka the shoe of the season, sweep in to pull the whole thing together. You don't need to be donning fancy gear to wear heels. In fact, I much prefer to be in ultra-casual garb when strapping on sky-high footwear -- all in the name of balance. Now, if only I could actually be going to Mexico in this thing, I would be more than happy to swap the Ninas for Havaianas...
