Top: Equipment (Similar)
Jeans: Frankie B.
Belt: Vintage
Bag: Vintage Gucci
Sunnies: Chloe
Earrings: Michele Gramesty

These jeans are proof that shizz always comes back around to be cool again...and this is the exact reason I have a hard time getting rid of things! Some would refer to this problem as hoarding but I like to think of it as a 'value conscious' decision...I mean, I just saved myself from having to buy a new pair, right?! Right. Well folks, I do believe I just pulled into the station of justification. Whatever works.
*As my closet busts at the seams from my perpetual hoarding* 
Anywhoots, they made for the perfect pairing with my cozy cut out cardi and my favorite Equipment shirt..you can seriously never go wrong with Equipment. They always manage to make you look extra chic and way cooler than you probably think you are. No joke.
Gearing up for a fun yet busy weekend ahead of me with birthday parties and two fun events!
Wishing you all a very happy weekend!

much love,

Honey, if you've got it (which you DO!), flaunt it! I swear Frankie B's are like a disaster to get in and out of for me...that low waistline, the super tight hip action...but those flares, THOSE flares are unbelievable! You sure are rocking the *ish outta em! She's a keeper fosho Nic! Totally your style!

Peace. Love. LOL!

Totally agree with 'hoarding' clothes to wait for the trend to run full circle. Love this outfit! Have a great weekend.

I really need to adopt your mentality of hoarding clothing I am continually cleaning out my closet and reselling stuff to crossroads trading. I need to break this habit because as you mentioned, things DO come back into fashion. I actually did buy new flared jeans!!! (for 30 dollars but still! I could have spent that money at Shop Frankie's!



Audrey said...

This is SO my style...love it! I'm glad you saved those jeans because they fit you perfectly! TGIF lady! www.casualglamorous.com

knockedupfabulous said...

I'm totally with you, girl! I hate parting with clothes...they always seem to come back around! Just gotta get a bigger closet!

Amber said...

Adore that sweater so much. I don't like getting rid of things, but I don't consider myself a "hoarder" either... I just don't shop a lot, and mostly buy timeless pieces I know I'll almost always wear!

I like value conscious decision. I call it "having options." Because seriously every time I get rid of something, a month later I wish I had it!! Someday I will have a big beautiful walk-in closet. Until then... I stuff. And stuff some more. :)

Love that color of green!! And the cut-outs are really cool!

SADBBLOG said...

Andi said...

Kristin said...

hannahstiff said...

Mostly Im a hoarder but sometimes I need room when I am literally pushing the hangers with one had and shoving a new one in with the other, thats when my cupboard gets a clean out. I love that cardi, just brilliant.
