The first time I photographed my favorite grey t-shirt with my new pale pink skinny jeans was kind of a flop. That post got a lot of feedback, both pro and con. I think we all agreed that we like the color combo, but the outfit was missing something.
I love both pieces, and I felt like they deserved a second chance, so one day last week I put them together again, but I tweaked the outfit a bit.
First of all, I added a denim vest. The t-shirt has a relaxed fit, so I like to do a front tuck to give some definition to the waist, but the hip area can look boxy without a 3rd layer to lend some structure. A denim jacket would work, but a denim vest is a fresh alternative, and it’s more appropriate for warmer weather — not that we’ve been having warm weather, but I am hopeful that it’s just around the corner.
These are my Stuart Weitzman Elixir sandals, which I absolutely adore. They are so comfortable and so gorgeous; they always take an outfit to the next level. I’m not wearing these out and about just yet. I feel that espadrilles call for warmer weather, but hopefully that will be here soon. I know they are super spendy, so I linked to some other styles I like below.
This was the day I had my hair cut and colored. I love the curls my stylist put into my hair. I’ve been trying to figure out how to achieve the same look at home. It’s not as easy as it looks, but I’m getting there.
Finally, I added a belt to finish off the look. I know that wearing belts is optional these days, but I always feel like an outfit looks more complete with a belt if the waistband of the pants is visible.
If I could change anything about this outfit, I wish I’d cuffed the jeans. Looking at these pictures, I can see that they sit on top of the sandals. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I think a small cuff would be more flattering.
I definitely like these pants better with heels, and the vest gives some much needed structure to the outfit.
