Shirt: Vintage (Mo Vintage)
Sunglasses: Forever 21
I’m not sure what got into me when I pulled this look together. Despite some signature stripes, this outfit just does not scream “SANTINA!!!!” to me, and that makes me like it even more. I don't know who this imposter is, but I like her style. But you know what I like even more than this clash of pastel prints? The sunglasses. After my house was broken into back in September, I was left with only my Ray Bans, and I was craving some variety. I picked up two pairs of sunglasses during my trip to Portland, but this pair is definitely my favorite of the two. I absolutely adore the shape and color, especially since I’ve really been missing my white Chanel sunglasses, which I was wise enough to safely tuck away in storage. I hope you like them as much as I do, because I have the feeling you’ll be seeing a lot of them.
These pants are really old; I can only vaguely remember when I used to wear them. I found them while packing everything up before the move, and while the cut wasn’t my favorite I was kind of into the idea of bringing along something seersucker. After ignoring them for six months, I put them on and decided to make it work. The print and colors of the pants are so subtle that I decided to add another print with this vintage shirt I scored when I won that giveaway on Clyde’s Rebirth. The longer cardigan anchored the look, and my new favorite sunglasses finished it off.
