I come to you today to bring you a look I’m fondly calling “bougie mom of two escapes to Nantucket for a cup of coffee and a chance to watch The Real Housewives in peace and quiet”.
Also yes, it is two days after Labour Day and here I am in all my white-pant impudence. I’m a trailblazer! A real rule-breaker!
Maybe not, but I am someone whose long trouser collection is limited to 50 Shades of Denim (the working title of my autobiography) and the odd elephant pant. So I can’t afford to be stingy with what little I have left by abiding by weird antiquated fashion rules about white objects most likely created by old white people who are now all dead.
I found this top, which combines some of my favourite things –side slits, turtlenecks, and oatmeal- in a massive Mango sale I stumbled into literal hours before my plane took off in Athens. It was 9€. I repeat, 9€. I’m putting this up there with finding my tacky Christmas cat sweater as one of the best purchases I’ve made.
Paired with white jeans and no shoes because I’m whimsical AF, this makes a great end of summer look. I say this because it pulls on both the best of summer –emphasizing your tan– and the best of fall –long trousers= no need to shave your legs– equally.
You can tell I really embraced the deconstructed motif here: peep my Medusa hair and glasses (which are really starting to grow on me). The longing looks off the dock are 100% intentional and meant to convey a message.
Specifically, that message is: “take a picture, it’ll last longer. And that way you can also control the filters to ensure that my tan is optimized and my acne is minimized. #wokeuplikedis”.
