See, I was actually wearing pants! The wide-leg, high-waist, super paper soft variety. While I love the skinnies, these babies are the perfect, lightweight pair to have on summer nights when
Make it work for you:
- Top: My top is an embellished-neck silk blouse I bought years ago at Neiman Marcus. It isn't meant to be worn with anything underneath but it's so low-cut on me that I risk a wardrobe malfunction, so I found a camisole to layer under. Now that I have a little one, I'm not wearing silk on a regular weekend day, nor am I bothering with the underpinning-and-extra-straps-while-carrying-a-baby issue. This top has the same boho feel but much more user-friendly.
- Jeans: Unfortunately, my 7 for all mankind jeans from Saks Fifth Avenue are no longer available in that wash but the same fit is available this darker wash. These Gap jeans aren't as soft, but for $34.99, you can't go wrong.
- Shoes: The shoes are Michael Kors wooden platform heels (shown here), which is not recommended when you're drinking and walking. Definitely not recommended when you're running after a busy toddler. Stick with flats with a 1" wedge and wide leg jeans for that easy boho feel. If you need extra height (do we have to sacrifice height for children?) these wedges are a cool bohemian alternative.
- Extras: Add a statement necklace with all the right natural elements and a small suede clutch to finish off the look.
