Super Cincher

Tee: Heartbreakers
Jeans: Gap
Scarf: Swapped
Belt: Picky Girl
Shoes: UO
Blazer: Swapped

This post is like Superwoman, but instead of saving humans, I’m saving WAISTS, my friends! Just call me the Super Cincher–and check out the waist-to-hip proportion on this outfit!

Actually, in all seriousness, my vision for this outfit did not pan out into real life. What I imagined was something simple and monochrome: navy and grey with a cinched waist and scrunchy scarf. What I lived in real life was a scrunchy blazer! I think the key to making this outfit work next time would be a skinnier belt not cinched quite so tight. This one is elastic and wide, making it rather right. and I have such a dramatic waist that perhaps I don’t need such a dramatic belt. Your thoughts, dear readers?

Also, ANNOUNCEMENT! My next guest fashion post will be one of my besties, Morgan, here to talk about MEN’S fashion. (Ya hear that, gents? This blog is not only for the ladies!) And PS, Mo is a personal shopper at J. Crew. So stay-freaking-tuned.

Black and white striped tank: Thrifted

There are certain pieces that we wear over and over and over again, and these shorts have become my go-to comfortable weekend wear, just cycling different tees and tanks in and out of rotation. Maybe I’m getting lazy, but certain pieces have found their ways to the back of my closet, and others (like these shorts) have been resurfacing much more frequently in this 30 for 30 challenge.

So this is a doubled-up post, with two similar outfits that I wore pretty much back-to-back last week when I was on vacation. There are even a few more coming down the pike with these shorts, but I’ll share them with you in a more measured way. 🙂

Curious about past ways I’ve worn these shorts? See one, two, and three.
