Short work week, as tomorrow morning I'm off to Arizona for a much needed week of baseball and sunshine ... and a shopping date with Claire, woohoo!

#2 Monday - I've been having fun using these mid-rise pants the way I would proper high-waisted pants, if I wore them. Paired with a boxy cropped sweater and an only-visible-when-I-move layer of black underneath (cami, socks). Cream booties for bookending, long silver earrings to add a little extra vertical integrity, and orange lipgloss because it's my favorite with white+blue. You can see why I'm not into high-waisted pants for me -- I won't have any torso left!

#3 Tuesday - Felt inspired to pull out my own very boxy top after seeing Neel's fab outfit this morning. This ponte top is very stiff and very rectangular, pretty opposite what's underneath. Even the neckline is stiff; the faux-leather piping causes it to stand out resulting in a flower-pot effect along the neckline. Paired with flared jeans to balance the volume (plus the fitted thighs add some structure), black pumps to pick up on the black trim, and plum lippie because it felt the least expected with the white+blue.

Hope you gals have a fabulous week! Comments, critiques, thoughts and questions welcome.
