This casual OOTD was inspired by Independence Day. You can’t really tell because it ended up turning into something very different. I went into one of my favorite boutiques with July 4th in mind and came out with this sweet ensemble.
I ended up going with a casual look because these high-waist leggings were so comfortable that I couldn’t not get them. Not to mention how good they look on! They rise just above the belly button, so they would make a great addition to any crop top look. I didn’t find a crop top to match but I did spot this beautiful, distressed top.
I have noticed that distressed denim is very “In” ever since the debut of Kanye’s Yeezy collection. I love the intricate, bright red detail of this rose applique. It just begged me to pair it with those red leggings. It requested the refreshing presence of white as far as accessories were concerned. Thus I could not say no to these sexy as hell, stunna shades.
They make for a winning combination when paired with a neat top knot and these gorgeous, crystal hoops that I also found at the boutique. These sunglasses are so cute and perfect for summer. I think I can find a million ways to rock them.
Here’es a closer look at those hoops!
And here is the complete look. I admit the shirt is quite large for my frame. It is a Large. I would go with a Medium or Small in the future. The pants are a One Size.
I had a lot of fun filming the video and shooting the photos for this look. The photos are great and to get a better look at this OOTD check out the finished lookbook on my YouTube channel.
