Hi-Low


{ Tank: Wilfred (old, from Aritzia) // Skirt: Forever 21 (also love this one) // Sandals: Zara (last seen here) // Headband: Goody // Clutch: Bijoux Terner // Bracelets: H&M and Forever 21 // Sunglasses: House of Harlow 1960 "Chelsea" }

I've been on a bit of a hi-low hem kick lately, as seen in my last two outfit posts here and here. I just love the way the asymmetry makes the clothing flow and the visual interest it provides. I'm also having fun discovering new ways to wear old items. I've had this sleeveless blouse for a couple years now and always wore it loose and buttoned all the way down. Tying up the front to show off a sliver of skin gives it a completely different look that gives new life to a classic piece. Have you tried re-inventing items in your wardrobe? Do share them with me! Happy Friday!

  3. Lovely outfit! I like the use of color in the shoes, it's not matchy matchy but still ties in with the color of the shirt. As for re-inventing clothing, I've been trying to wear some of my dresses as skirts ;) Great blog, glad to have discovered it! Have a wonderful weekend!
