I don’t usually wear shirts done up to the collar but I really like the look. Keeps everything boyish so I pulled the hair up. Opened up the lower buttons to still keep everything less stuffy.
***
God knows why it’s taken me this long to get leopard skinnies, but I LOVE the print on these ones – almost snake like. I wore the cream oversized jacket to keep the focus on them.
***
The $10 shades are from St Marks – the mother ship for cheap specs. They reminded me of Supers (my current wish list item). Thanks Joe πŸ˜‰ Oh and the clutch – I ended up keeping the orange. I’ve been road testing it for a few days and love the pop more than the white one.

    u look so chic karen! i love how the outfit is the same palette and then BANG! before I scrolled all the way down, i thought to myself ‘a red bag would look so hot with this’ and voila! there it was! as for the high color, that’s exactly how i’ve been wearing ALL my shirts lately. it’s very androgynous, which is what i’m super feeling lately. oh those emma cooks!!! i haven’t worn mine in forever! but still love ’em so…..
