last night's emerald

May 4, 2010

LaRok top andiT Jean Joy Comfort Rider in Emerald. Secondhand hat. Marc by Marc Jacobs boots. Mens cardigan.

Both wrinkly-fronted and classic, these completely fulfill my need of a vintage-looking pair of jeans that are screaming to be naturally worn in throughout Spring. And at the risk of sounding finicky, I always have a hard time finding a pair of jeans that I like because the choices are overwhelming with the combinations of cuts, washes, complex designs, and whatever else you can use to decorate a pair of jeans. I paired my new rustic jeans with a flirty top capable of showing my midriff due to the lapse of frontal buttons as well as the alluring sheer mesh that hangs behind me. I sort of feel like a fairy in it. Thank you Revolve for the wonderful gifts.

  6. I really love those nude colors you're wearing. it makes me wanna go out right now and buy some nude colors clothes for myself...too bad its night time right now here.
    I hate it when I have these cravings in the middle of the night and I cant do anything about them ):

    sunrays ne'er appeared, so, so resplendent
    'till seemingly, babe, wrapped 'round you -
    sparkling, dancing, embracing you so tenderly
    both so glowing and radiant, oh, what a view!

    always been fond, of sunrises and sunsets
    with their breathtaking, splendor, so divine -
    now, beholding you, bein' lovingly sunkissed
    so fascinatingly dreamy, vicariously, sublime!


  8. Beautiful pics as usual. Love the easy breezy look.

  9. I love, love, love that top! It looks so comfortable and flowy and interesting. I was surprised to hear it's LaRok, I associate them with a much more night time, "going out" look.

  13. I love the silhouette of your top and that peek of colour from your tan belt. You're totally rocking that floppy hat and I love the way it looks along with the lighting in the 5th photo. I wish it was as sunny here in Vancouver! You look lovely and chic though :)

  23. I know what you mean. I'm constantly frazzled by any store carrying a load of denim brands..I just don't know where to begin besides narrowing it down to a skinny jean. Even then the jean bar is too much to take in. Luckily I'm into pants as of now, high waisted drop crotch ones to be exact.

  24. that top is so lovely! love the jewelry too!

  25. I love that top! So lovely and summery and ethereal. :) I'm checking it out for sure. Your Marc Jacobs boots are fantastic too. I just love how you put things together!
