White Washed


Yesterday was a gorgeous day in NYC after the early morning rain. The sun came out and it got up into the mid 50's. It was a perfect Saturday. But now of course it raining cats and dogs outside.
 




Outfit
Top: Forever 21
Cardigan: H&M
Shorts: BCBGeneration via Nordstroms Rack
Heart Suspender Tights: ASOS see them HERE!!!!
Platforms: Jessica Simpson
Bag: Thifted
Beenie: Forever 21 see it worn in another post HERE!!!!

While perusing through Nordstroms Rack a few weeks ago I came across these great BCBGeneration white washed shorts on sale for $16, fashion STEELE! Ignoring the fact that my Mint account had already emailed me an Over Clothing Spending Limit Alert, I still had to get these. I mean come on $16, that's like 3 Chai Tea Lattes at Starbucks. I know I will get a lot of mileage out of these bad boys too. Summers just around the corner...I hope!

BCBGeneration is fast become one of my brand lovelies. I now own 4 pieces from the brand ranging from a clutch, pumps, shorts and a blouse. They make high quality stuff and I love it all! Glad I can find their items at affordable prices at places like Nordstroms Rack and Filenes Basement.

What are some of your favorite brands?

XOXO

  2. I adore the tights, they're awesome! Lovely outfit as usual :-)
    Well, I don't have any favourite bands (well, I'd like to write Chanel here...), I don't care about brands all that much, when it fits me & is affordable, I'll buy it. Which means I've lots of no name brands in my closet.

    I am not only treasuring the earrings, but also the paper you wrap them in is part of MIS PAPELICOS ( meaning my cutouts). They will be with me for ever.
    They will be starring in the next post.
    Much love and kisses.

  23. Love those shorts with the tights!! The shorts will be fab in the summer time (if indeed if ever comes!!! Freezing again in NY). I have to say, I'm loving all things All Saints right now. Very challenging to get their things on sale though : (
