On a perpetual hunt for basics to layer under jackets/sweaters, etc., etc., I was thrilled to find this simply stated, “style”ish graphic tee at Costa Blanca. Here it’s the base of a casual, layered look I wore to run errands on Saturday when the temp. soared above zero, making bare feet and Chucks perfectly acceptable. I’m still loving these faux leather pants too! They added some polish to my casual layers whereas my go-to boyfriend jeans would have made the look a little too sloppy, which brings me to a good teaching point: to pull off more laid back pieces like the oversize layers I’m wearing here, temper the slouchiness with a slick, trim fitting pant. Indigo skinnies would have also done the trick. Likewise, to prevent my favourite destroyed boyfriends from looking too sloppy, I wear them with more delicate tops and heels. It’s the rule of opposites: casual on top calls for dressed up bottoms and vice versa.
