In honor of this holiday weekend and the unofficial end to summer, I thought I would put together all the whites and creams of my wardrobe to celebrate the transition from summer to fall wardrobes (although I'm a rebel that wears white all year long -- YOLO)
Chloe Long Sleeve Top [secondhand, $10], Banana Republic Mini Skirt [new, $10], Banana Republic Nude Wedges [secondhand, $15], Burberry scarf [secondhand, $20], Chanel Cat Eye Sunglasses [secondhand, $30]
I scored this gorgeous piece off one of my favorite secondhand online retailers, The Real Real, a few months back. The site was having an end of season sale and had their clearance items additionally marked down. After registering a new email and receiving a $25 credit, I got this pretty piece for barely two digits including shipping. While this style is a couple seasons old, considering a tank top from Chloe is over $500, I would imagine I probably got this top at QUITE the discount.
The piece was made in France and has the most amazing details. I love the button charms because they are a mix of gemstones with gold and silver sequins, which doesn't limit you with other accessories. The material is so soft, and it is such an easy piece to dress up with a skirt and heels or dress down with jeans and flats. Total wardrobe maker!
I actually have this skirt in black as well. With the wool material, this skirt really works well in both summer with a bare leg or during winter with sheer tights. What you can't really see in this photo is a fun gold zipper detail down the front that makes it more interesting and just a little sexy.
These simple nude cork wedges are leg elongating goodness that look great with any bottom (shorts, skirts, jeans, whatever!) I found them as a Buy Now item on eBay, made an offer, and got them for $15 WITH shipping!
Thank you so much for reading!
So what is the verdict? White after Labor Day, yay or nay? Comment below with your thoughts!
