I've found myself to be more of a collared shirt person than I ever could have expected. I only started wearing them once I started working in a business environment, and now I find myself wearing them even for casual wear. I love the way this shirt - buttoned all the way up - looks with this vest. I tried it with my usual few-buttons-open look and it just didn't look right. The rolled sleeves keep it fresh and a bit casual, and you all know I'm a sucker for stripes. And navy blue. And shamelessly mixing black and navy.
I'll give you a little heads up that you'll be seeing a bit less of this Wang bag in the near future. Not that it's being retired (no way!) but I recently received my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag and it's glorious and perfect and I'm obsessed with it. If you follow my Instagram (@xochloegordon) or have checked out the Snapwidget at the top of my blog you'll have seen it a couple of times already but I'll go ahead and reiterate: Wow. Wow. Wow. And imagine that, I already have a funny little story for you: I was in Aritzia the other day with my friend and I was carrying the bag. One of the sales associates came up and told me she loved my bag and asked where it was from. I said Mansur Gavriel and she looked totally puzzled... so I just said that it was from the Internet. My friend - who bore witness to my hysteria over purchasing and waiting for it - thought it was hilarious that only a small group of people really understand how "hardcore" it is to actually have this bag! It makes me feel a bit crazy but also like I'm a member of a really cool club with excellent taste...
Finally, I'm not sure if I've given these boots the love they deserve on here. Given, my last few OOTD posts were shot before I had received them in the mail, but I feel like I wear them enough in my OOTDs on Instagram that some of you may recognize them. They're F/W 2014 from Zara and are my favourite. Sleek leather booties with a pointed toe and a slight block heel. SO chic and so classic. Best of all, I got them on sale for $60! Score!
