Today's quick post is an ode to my newest favorite accessory: a tied up button down!
Burberry Trench [secondhand, $80], J. Crew Button Down [secondhand, $20], Saks 5th Ave. Dress [new, $10], Banana Republic Sandals [new, $3], Rebecca Minkoff Studded Crossbody [new, $55], Chanel Sunnies [secondhand, $30]
I've been loving the tied up top recently, especially over a high waisted skirt or dress. It gives the outfit a pin up flair and is way more comfortable than wearing your button down in the run of the mill style. I particularly love J. Crew blouses, but a piece can cost you upwards of $80-$100 brand new. I found this one gently used on eBay for a 1/4 of the price!
I was on the hunt for these black Chanel cat eye sunnies FOREVER and I will be dishing on how I got them for so cheap later this week!
I know this is an #ootd post, but I can't help but share this AmAzInG little coffee place we hit up while we were out and about shooting looks in Huntington Beach. It's called Philz Coffee, and when we arrived the line was *literally* out the door and wrapped around the corner. But the wait is so worth it once you make your way to the barista counter and watch them brew a custom cup of joe for you.
My choice: mojito iced coffee! YUM! Who would have thought mint and coffee could go together so well?! If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend!
