Fashion Over Reason: Plain Jane

Plain Jane

Plain Jane, Fashion Over Reason, Wallyface, casual summer

Summer is in full swing and the weather is hitting peaks and valleys -- mostly peaks, in true NYC form. During those hot days of just hanging around the neighborhood, no one wants to don anything too fussy, nor do they want to be bothered to think too much about their attire on a lazy weekend day.

Ain't nothing wrong with going the plain Jane route when the scenario requires nothing more of you. Outdoor picnic? Check. Hazy mind from the night before? Check. Laying low for no good reason at all? Bringing along your best live canine accessory? Check, check.

So roll out of bed, take a brush to your teeth but not your hair, reach for your go-tos -- stripes and cutoffs in my case -- and don't think about it again until you have to change into something a little more, er, put together for the evening. Repeat the next day.

Red stripes, cutoffs, vintage levi's, Refin Denim hookup shorts, Filippa K tee, Loeffler Randall sandals, Ray-Ban aviatorsSummer in Brooklyn, Filippa K red striped t-shirt, Refind Denim cutoff shorts, Loeffler Randall straw and silver sandals, Ray-Ban Aviators, Suburban Riot canvas tote bag, Wallyface mini aussie, summer essentials
Details:
Tee - Filippa K (love this one)
Cutoffs - Refind Denim (these are great too)
Sandals - Loeffler Randall (these are great)
Sunnies - Ray-Ban
Tote - Suburban Riot (this one is aweseome)

Nothing plain about this outfit girl. Add a few stripes to a good ol' pair of cutoffs and you've created yourself a real eyecatcher there...especially with the red, which is THE colour of next season. A true success from head to toe. And the canine accessory is rather dashing too ;)

Yes it is good to have a laid back plain jane day. Especially when it is hot. Though it has been so nice such an easy going summer. And love your companion!

Nothing wrong with a 'plain' casual look, but I agree with Jasmin - there is nothing plain about this look! Loving the stripes on you. Your dog is so cute!
