One of my favorite things about fashion is that it's really fun to play around with it. Nothing gets me going quite like proportion play and the thought of being able to strike the perfect sartorial balance by pairing unexpected items together. It's all about creating a middle ground for pieces that are otherwise on very different ends of the spectrum.
I've spoken before about my aversion to bodycon and I suppose it's a recurring theme because it's intrinsically part of my style DNA, but here I go again in a getup that is nothing if not far from my flesh. These oversized, baggy trouser bermuda shorts are actually quite dressy, but the fact I float in them attributes them a fun sk8er grrrl quality. Instead of trying to tailor them into a seamless fit, I embraced their largeness and figured, while I was at it, why not go large on top too?
Giving things a lift (literally) and balance are all four inches of my trusty mules. It's kind of like, girl at the skate park goes to Lincoln Center.
