(Vintage Top/Skirt/Cardigan/Bag/Pendants, Miu Miu Heels)

If I owned some fancy lakeside house I would imagine my outfit would look something like this. Long skirts to catch the breeze, little crop tops to soak in the sun when it gets too warm and an oversized cardigan that is so easy to curl up in when the sun starts to set. Kind of exactly what I did the other day except I didn't own the lakeside house (still working on that part). I don't know if it's the lack of sleep I've had lately or the fact I'm purely in denial about the weather but little cropped singlets and a slight bit of "torsodriff" (I would like to think this is more tasteful than the midriff with ones exposed bellybutton) are working their way back into my wardrobe, or should I say winter wardrobe? Yes it doesn't make any sense to me either and I'm still yet to find that perfect cropped singlet I know exists out there somewhere. I just have to find it first - Isn't that always the way? Loving white on white after seeing the the Dolce and Gabbana SS 11 collection but even more obsessed with this cocoon cardigan I can't stop wearing. It's that perfect length to create that shaggy chic look when styled with pretty much anything. Well, anything besides a non-existent lakeside house..

  22. Was really surprised that the crop top was vintage, it just looks so on trend. Regardless, I love it. Have tried to find a nice crochet top (or similar) for a while now...
