Today was the first day I’ve worn pants in Providence since I got here over 2 months ago. I can’t believe it was over 100 degrees just one month ago, while today, it dropped to the low 70s. I suppose this is where the cycle restarts? So I guess I made it through my first year of actually having seasons, and I can’t say I don’t mind :) Miami will be 90 up until Christmas, haha.

Also here, you’ll notice I’m wearing another pair of new shoes, my grey distressed litas! Again, this is another dream shoe of mine that I’m happy to have gotten. I was waiting for these to restock forever, and I finally found them elsewhere just by chance :)


The American Apparel Riding Pants are nothing short of amazing. I picked this pair up at a second hand store for like, $22. And it’s the second pair I’ve gotten from there at that price. I don’t think you’ve actually seen my black ones yet, but I’ve had them for months. When I saw these, I was like, “You’ve got to be kidding me. They’re in the same exact place that I found the first pair!” The green was an instant love, but I was certainly skeptical. But I went with it anyway, because everything I get from AA is usually either black or forest green.

Wearing:
Lace top: American Apparel (similar by marc jacobs)
Black tank: Urban Outfitters (similar here)
Riding Pant: American Apparel (buy here)
Hoodie: American Apparel (buy here)
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell (in black)

More shoe posts coming to you soon!

I’ve never seen anyone pull off a pair of green pants as well as you! Your outfit is darling and I love your new litas! Tell me, are they comfortable? I love the style but my feet hurt in many, many shoes.

Haha, you’re too kind. Thank you so much! And the litas are beyond comfortable. Go to a Nordstrom and try them on…I have a coupon code I could give you to buy them at Karmaloop if you do like them :) I’ve heard of lots of people buying litas as their first heels!
