Mixing and Meshing

Today's outfit is a copycat of Jean's with the same blazer and brown pants. I think this blazer will be making its rounds (two down) with every bottom in my closet. It's just so... pair-able, for lack of a better word.

One of my favorite aspects of blogging is coming up with post titles. I love a good pun, but unfortunately I'm a left-brainer. So often times, I resort to making up words. What are you, 5 years old? Take for instance the mesh top that I'm wearing today. On a good day, I'll think: Mesh... meshes well? Mis-mesh? Mixing and meshing? Hot mesh? <silence as brain stops working> I suppose I'll be picking from one of the four above. On a bad day, Google is my best friend as all I hear are crickets.
necklace: Simply Vera Vera Wang silver-tone cluster (similar)
blazer: H&M draped (similar; similar)
top: Ann Taylor asymmetrical drape (sold here)
ring: Forever 21 pearlescent cluster (sold here)
bracelets: Forever 21 rope/cable bangle (the real deal; similar);
Forever 21 rhinestone snake chain (similar); Forever 21 mixed (similar)
pants: Zara TRF cargo trousers (similar)
bag: Balenciaga city (this season's sold here)

  6. I have the hardest time making up post titles. I vascillate between making up some random stuff or doing some cheesy line from a song no one would get anyways, haha!

    (BTW, I FINALLY just went ahead and bought a new camera today. I kept going between different that Sony you've got and the Panasonic. Bit on the Panasonic - keeping my fingers crossed that it works out!)

    1. YAY! I think generally speaking, the Panasonic has better reviews so you couldn't have chose a better upgrade! Looking forward to your future photos as you experiment :)

  7. I have no idea what to name my blog posts sometimes. Often, I'll just take a word from the post and make it the title. I'm very lacking in terms of creativity. I did want to pop over not really to say that, but to say that I absolutely love that draped jacket on you!

    1. Haha, you can say whatever you want Jenn :) I find comments from readers who relate the topic (or anything else really) back to themselves to be the most interesting. High five for left-brainers? :)

  8. I long gave up thinking of clever post titles - my brain just isn't that big ;)

    I simply adore those flats. How is the fit?

    1. Try rolling up your sleeves? I'm not sure how you feel about that look. I like it because it gives of that done-on-purpose-messy-and-casual look, haha.

  13. I love the simplicity of your outfit and the statement necklace! Great pairing!
