I love mixing fancy clothing pieces with really casual ones and that is exactly what I did with this outfit. Cailin and I were in the city to go to Christmas Eve service at Hillsong NYC and to hit up the markets for some last minute shopping. A casual look and sneaks are a great way to stay comfortable when you’re walking all over the city. I knew I was going to wear my Vans because they are super comfortable, so I planned the rest of my outfit around that.
I’ve had this gold flower detailed top (vintage) for awhile now and love wearing it to things like concerts in the winter, because even though it’s sleeveless, it’s woven like a sweater. That way if you’re steaming up at a venue you won’t look like you’re at a rave in the middle of summer. The metallic gold makes it perfectly fancy for the holiday season, but it is also super easy to dress down. I paired it with a over-sized black cardigan from Rue21 and these really cool jeans I’m now obsessed with from Macy’s to give the outfit a casual vibe. The dye is super cool looking and I love the cropped frayed edges. The boyfriend fit makes them both comfy and edgy looking. I’ll also take this opportunity to say my sis is a dope photographer, haha!
