Basics and Brights
Wearing: Xhilaration necklace, American Apparel T-shirt (similar), cardigan c/o Color Me Cotton, Mossimo jeans, Forever 21 handbag, and H&M Conscious Collection booties
The week before last in San Francisco, I finally got my hands on the floral booties from the H&M Conscious Collection that I eagerly sought in early October. With all the buzz surrounding the Versace collection, I'd just about given up hope of ever finding them, so you can imagine my animated reaction upon spotting them on a lonely back wall display on the second floor of the Powell St. store. (Yes, I'm the type of shopper that occasionally gasps and then breaks into a mini run when I see something I really like or want.)
Although I don't have much orange in my wardrobe, this pumpkin-hued cardigan's bold color and medium-weight texture seemed fitting for this warm post-Thanksgiving day. Occasionally, it's the standout items (bright cardigan, printed boots, colorful bag) that can make the basics (simple tee and skinny jeans) seem more special.
