Confessions of a Repeat Offender

Do you ever go through phases with clothing, where you can't stop wearing the same item? Like when you have a favourite song so you keep playing it on repeat? I do this. Most recently, with this Club Monaco vest. And with One Direction. (Don't judge me.)

I'm a textbook repeat offender. Which is one reason why I don't do style posts everyday, because you'd A. get bored, and B. question my laundry habits, and neither are things I want for us. And like One Thing and What Makes You Beautiful (surprise! I was serious about that) the items below are totally my jam right now.

Why, you ask? Sunglasses that completely cover the horror of morning face are awesome, especially when they have reflective lenses as such so it's easy to stare at people like a weirdo and not get caught.

Three rings, on three fingers! It's the better version of a knuckle duster, because you can still type, do jazz hands, and go to the bathroom, no problem.

A denim shirt is the holy grail of button downs; it's the perfect white tee in the world of casual collars, and Texas. But hold on to your hats, cowboys, because the only thing better than a comfy chambray shirt, is one with tropical polyester sleeves, like this: the shirt version of Tom Selleck's career: a little Western, a bit Hawaii 5-O. You get it.

Puh-lease. It's a fringed skirt. Need I say more?

Ah yes, the boots! They're not expensive, high, or uncomfortable, so... they cool. And I bet you've never seen this bag before. Heh. #Sarcasm.

  7. Cool skirt! I have a fringe skirt that I should wear again.
