I can actually picture myself wearing this ideal spring outfit…minus the Alexa bag of course (as much as I love/need, I don’t have a spare grand laying around).  And for as often as I live in a fashion fantasy world, I’m a jeans and tee kind of gal (mostly…I do spruce up every now and again).  So this outfit is not much different than my current repertoire.

I decided to add a little flair with the FO 21 pearl collar.  If you’re EVER thinking to yourself: I need flair, you will undoubtedly find said flair at Forever 21.  It doesn’t matter that the gold will tarnish or the necklaces will break after 2 wears, FO 21 has a well-stocked flair department.  You will find what you need for just about any occasion.  Anyways, the pearl collar adds a nice feminine touch to the mostly masculine pieces of the outfit (though the pearls will probably start to unravel before I even finish posting this blog).

The Spitfire circle glasses, on the other hand, will automatically catapult you (or me, I guess) into the hipster category.  I better start practicing my brooding face.

And what can I say about the Mulberry Alexa?  It’s perfection.  I would put it in the same category as the PS1.  Classic. Timeless. Essential. Versatile. The bee’s knees. Too expensive for moi.

With that said, I want to wear this outfit right now.  Is it legal to wear white jeans yet???
