There are a few things about this outfit that feel classically Sarah, with a bit of ’90s revival for good measure. The denim jacket with flair, the skater dress, the clogs, the saddle bag, the brownish matte lip…okay, it’s pretty ’90s.
Is it weird that this outfit came together around my pin? It was a free gift that came with my new Chewbacca camera bag, and I love it (close up here). Turns out that BB-8 makes for a great conversation starter, and fashion inspiration. Pining it on my denim jacket seemed like common sense, and then the orange led me to my peach dress, and here we are.
I felt super myself in this outfit. It’s comfy and casual, but still feminine. My clogs are my favorite shoes and always make me feel extra confident. There’s a lot of color — the dress, the denim, the moss green bag, the turquoise earrings — but it’s not overwhelming. Hopefully it’s modern enough, and not a total ripoff on my first decade.
Anyone else playing around with the ’90s “trend”? I don’t think I’m ready to pull out a choker just yet, but any excuse to rock my pin and clogs is okay with me!
Let me preface this by saying that when Priya and I first started emailing about this collaboration, I was envisioning this tank tucked into a swingy skirt topped with the denim jacket (kind of like these outfits). But no… Philadelphia was all like, “Remember that heat wave in March? It was a false promise and it’s too cold to go bare legged without tights.” (I am not putting tights on again until the fall. Refuse.)
You can take the girl out of Florida, but you can’t take the Florida out of the girl.
If you don’t already own a Home T for your respective state, get on that. They are so soft and the dark gray is perfect. (They also have v-necks and baseball tees and totes and I want all of them. Did I mention they’re made in the U.S.A. and help support M.S. research?) My tank was actually a really thoughtful bridesmaid gift last year. I loved growing up in South Florida (and I always have to make that distinction), and I miss it constantly. (Yes, even though Floridians are constantly trolls and trolled on. It’s fine.)
Anyway, back to the outfit. Seeing as the temperatures in Philly are not nearly as warm as Florida, an extra layer was a must. I love the pop of color the denim jacket adds (but goodness the color is really starting to fade after a few years — last seen here). The look was still missing something, so I added this floral necklace (remember accessories really elevate basic looks). The blues are an almost perfect match. A tinted lip balm and sunglasses, and you’re good to go.
Some other notes…
I promise I own more than this pair of flats
I did not intend for most of these photos to be so ~smirky~
Yes, I know I need to get my hair fixed up ASAP
