After months and months of a serious lack of personal style content, Meghan and I went out to shoot some photos a few weeks ago. It was fun to get back out there and look ridiculous on the streets of NYC again—I'd really missed the bemused looks from passersby. 

Anyway, this outfit isn't anything remarkable by any means, but I'm pretty obsessed with each element, which makes the whole thing a win in my book. I found this cool Zara top at an even cooler consignment shop in the East Village (INA) a few months ago, and I love how well it's sporty aesthetic contrasts with these slick J. Crew heels and structured Wink & Winn bag. You guys know what a hard time I have wearing heels on the regular, but they really add that little bit of polish that takes this outfit from "hanging out on the weekend" to "I can probably get away with this at the office."

Now, I know we're about to swan dive into the dog days of summer, but if you're still in the market for a perfect pair of boyfriend jeans, I can attest that I have found them in Paige's Jimmy Jimmy cut. The fit is relaxed but not to schlumpy, and the wash is right there between light and dark, aka the denim sweet spot. I've tried J. Crew, Zara and just about every brand in Bloomingdales' denim bar, and these won out over all of 'em. 

*Note that this was also the last photo op before I chopped all my hair off, so stay tuned for more on that tomorrow!
