Sometimes you just want to go for the classics, right? And few things are so clasically sexy as tight cropped pants, showing some dainty ankle and foot. Paired with a menswear shirt, this outfit evokes 50s rockabilly, but in a classic rather than kitschy way. No cherry prints and bandanas, but skinnies worn as cigarette pants and an oversized shirt with rolled up sleeves.

The shoes I'm wearing are a gracious gift from Lotus Shoes by the way! They are a perfect pair of basic heels, and the proportions of the heel height and the front platform are the perfect balance between elegant and comfortable. Lotus Shoes is a great destination if you, like me, have grown tired of most high street stores only offering either the flattest of ballet flats, or 10cm pumps. You usually have to check out more expensive brands to find mid height heels that don't look like they'd belong to your grandma, but Lotus Shoes has plenty of options if you're looking for an affordable pair of basic heels that you can actually wear to work or to a party without killing your back and feet. I can attest for their comfort level - these are definitely higher quality than your regular pair of New Look pumps.

I've been rediscovering heels lately - perhaps the pendulum swings back after a year of quasi-exclusively wearing sneakers and Birkenstocks? Either way, I've been enjoying the grown up elegance that always comes with wearing heels.

I feel like every season has a designated decade. Winter is the '80s: bold colours and shapes, structure, powerdressing. Spring is the '60s with an emphasis on clean lines and girly silhouettes, and summer is the '90s defined by fun and comfort. And then there's fall, which is obviously the season of the '70s. Layers, flowy fabrics, autumnal colours and the triumphant return of boots: every year, without a fail. That probably explains why I dress a little bit more like a witchy rockstar during autumn. If the weather wasn't so nice, I'd have paired this with some platform boots for ultimate Heart (Wilson sisters!) rock-awesomeness, but gold platform wedges are pretty kick-ass too.

I've had another incredibly busy and stressful week, and I'm running a slight fever (yeay for getting sick when you have loads of work to do!) but the weather has been gorgeous so I guess it evens out. Sorta. This was obviously not an office outfit btw. I mean, did you see the mesh? :-D ANYWAY enjoy your weekend!

Lace Cami Top, Boyfriend Jeans and Birkenstocks

oversized cardigan: Zara - lace cami top: Forever21 - boyfriend jeans: H&M - sandals: Birkenstock Salina

This cardigan has proven to be the most perfect item to easy my style from summer over indian summer to fall. A couple of years ago, I threw out almost all of my cardigans because I was sick of how frumpy and twee they made me look and feel. But recently I realized that nice cardigans are actually a great basic for any wardrobe, and that I would just need to stay away from form fitting, classical button up cardigans (the kind of cardigan you'd see in a twin-set). 
THIS particular oversized cardigan? Love at first sight. I spotted it on the Zara website and headed over to the store during my next lunch break. It was just as nice as I'd imagined it to be, so I bought it as my first fall piece and I have been wearing it literally everyday since for the past three weeks. I wear it as a coat slash cardigan, and the oatmeal-esque colour is incredibly versatile.

For this look, I paired it with my trusty birkenstocks, boyfriend jeans and this lace cami I found among the last sales deals at Forever21. My boyfriend quite likes it. It works really well with the type of relaxed trousers I've been wearing a lot at work lately. And it makes me feel really sexy. Which is always a good thing.
