This dark and minimalist outfit is such a contrast from last week’s outfit post, but I think it’s more representative of the types of ensembles you can find me wearing these days. Since I don’t have as much time to get ready in the morning, I usually gravitate towards outfit combinations that are both chic and effortless. Another great thing about this outfit is that it’s perfect for when you’re rushing to dinner or happy hour with friends straight after work. All you have to do is throw on a blazer to make it work for the office, and then either take it off or keep it on depending on the occasion.
You’ve seen most of these items before since I’m keeping my shopping to a minimum these days, but the one brand new item is this Everlane muscle tank. This tank is quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces because the relaxed fit is very flattering and perfect for when the weather is warm outside. I also like that the wider straps and high neckline make it very versatile and provide the perfect canvas for a cute statement necklace, like the one I’m wearing with this outfit. I decided to wear this tank with jeans on this day because the weather was a bit chilly outside, but I’ve also paired it with a pencil skirt for work. For reference, although I’m bit on the bustier side, I’ve noticed that Everlane tanks and t-shirts tend to run a bit large, so I sized down and purchased an X-Small.
Since I don’t have a huge shopping budget these days, I love finding pieces in my closet that continue to stand the test of time. These caged sandals were one of my first big splurges when I got my first real job a few years back, and they were well worth the investment because they are still a staple in my closet. The chunky heel of these shoes is very comfortable, and I love that they instantly add a very edgy vibe to any outfit. I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the sunny weather and experimenting with different ways to wear these sandals during the summer months.
I hope all of you in the U.S. are enjoying a relaxing long weekend and happy Independence Day! I’m usually really lazy and don’t do much on holiday weekends, but I’m looking forward to hanging out with my roommate, watching The Lobster and maybe catching some fireworks. And who can complain about getting an extra day off work, am I right?
