Well I had a totally different outfit planned for today but just had to change the plan when I saw the collections feature blog post! I haven't made many purchases this season, and some are from currently unsupported sites, so I added the finds I could and then built an outfit around a couple items from there: ivory sequin tank, white pumps, and black clutch. Curiously enough, none of these items were purchased this season but are all still available; I bought the tank and pumps last season, and the purse was a gift from my sister this past winter.

It's significantly cooler today, but it's still warm. I knew I didn't want full-length pants and debated between cropped pants or long shorts, but after opening a few windows and feeling how muggy it is I knew long shorts were the better choice. Truly, long shorts are one of the best types of bottoms for summer here. Unfortunately I only have two pairs, and really really need to get serious about finding a couple more. Today I'm feeling the glam bug so I pulled out this silky black cargo pair (*waves to Anna*).

I tried a couple different toppers before going with this gray cotton shrunken blazer; since the pants sit low on my hips AND the tank is quite long (though I managed to cover it up in the photos ><) I decided to play with the long torso thing with a cropped jacket. The long torso effect is much more obvious sans topper, and I quite like the look so I'm filing away this combo to wear again when the temperatures go back up later this summer. I added black and white chevron earrings to continue the graphic vibe, and finished things off with sheer light pink lipstick to add a little softness.

Extra high happiness with this one! It's super slouchy, but has a more structure than I've been able to get lately due to the shrunken nature of the blazer and lots more exposed skin. Plus it has loads of other things I love in it (blazer! sequins! white! pumps!) Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday ^^
