Waisted

 Dress: H&M, Sweater: Thrifted, Heels: Zara, Accessories: H&M beanie, Karen Walker sunglasses, J.Crew necklace, Jimmy Choo x H&M and ily couture bracelets, Casio watch, CatbirdNYC rings, Clare Vivier clutch

I never thought I would be throwing back to trends from the '80s or '90s but here I am. I'm truly coveting a lot of the things I used to own "back in the day" (overalls, flannels, shirts at the waist, neons, etc.) and surprisingly, I find the trends to look chic when there's modern elements added to the mix.

As you may be aware by now, SF has the opposite definition of summer weather so layering is key. I was traveling from one part of the city to the other and tying my sweater around my waist was not only a fashion statement but also practical. Am I the only one who dislikes carrying garments on the arm?

  1. Your shoes are amazing! I've been looking for a nice pair of lace-up heels and yours are perfect! I love the shirt dress and how you added a contrasting colored jumper! Great look!

  2. Haven't entered the shirt around the waist territory yet, but I have been loving the 90s resurgence as well. I think this is such a pretty twist on the trend! That dress looks so comfy! <3

  18. I'm glad the styles from the 80s and 90s are coming back =)
    Your blue dress sure looks comfortable and gorgeous on you. When travelling, I would prefer to just have a cardigan that I'm able to stuffed it into my bag =)
