Sunny Whites









A look from a few weeks ago before an early evening meeting with some fabulous ladies to discuss beauty and fashion fetes.  The sun was getting ready to set but it was still blazing hot, nearing 90 that day so the white pieces were perfect. The skirt was a super steal I picked up at a thrift store last summer and finally pulled it out to wear. The detail of the scalloped lace makes it so beautiful, especially paired with the high-waist--which I'm a fan of. I also found the ultra fabulous wind up watch at the same shop for $3!!!! It works, it's leather, it's brass chain, it's mine! 

The booties? Well let's just say 6" is what I'm about but not the most comfortable I own. After 3 hours I was done. I love them though! Pure hotness. 

Skirt: thrifted; Tank: BR: White Cardigan: F21: Shoes: Aldo: Shades: vintage Christian Dior; Clutch: vintage: Watch: vintage Timex; Ring: from Havana, Cuba; Coin bracelet: thrifted; Earrings: from C.B. Herrera Jewelry collection.

Bren Herrera said...

thanks, girls! the accessories are always my fave to hook up. well, after the shoes of course! the skirt was such an amazing find and I forgot that I've worn and talked about the watch before. I guess b/c it's so awesome that it's wind up and real leather with great brass chains, it's always special to wear!

Thanks for coming by and hope to see you soon. Oh, and to those that asked about my skin---wow! Thanks for the kindness. I get it sometimes but I'm the biggest critic thinking it needs some serious attention! ;) xo
