White + Metallics




Top & Shoes: H&M // Jacket: Forever 21 // Necklace: Ell and Em // Tights: Ardene // Book Clutch: Aldo // Shorts: Sirens

There's nothing better than starting a new week feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after a weekend of fun and relaxation. The past few days were chock-full of birthday parties, laughter, food, and embarrassing photos. On Saturday, I enjoyed a giant Chinese feast for a friend's birthday, after which we hung out at a hooka lounge for the rest of the night. The highlights of the experience were beating my tablemates at "Big 2" (the card game) and watching this beautiful belly dancer shimmy her way around the room. 

For the party, I initially wore this sheer-ish crop top from H&M and these silver high-waisted shorts; however, soon after putting on the outfit, I realized that I would never survive the huge dinner in such tight shorts! I made a smart decision and changed to a pair of print harem pants from Topshop instead (which will be featured in my next outfit post). As a result, I was comfortable and stylin' for the entire night-- I'm definitely not one to entirely sacrifice comfort for fashion!

  5. This look is simply amazing!
    The shorts are so cool!
    But I think for some huge dinner they wouldn't be comfortable ;)
    When I am invited to somewhere where will be a huge dinner I always put on some super comfy pants or my leather shorts because they are sooo comfortable ;)

  6. I saw this on your instagram and love it! The metallic shorts are so fun and I love the leather jacket. Very edgy and glam at the same time. The burgundy color looks amazing with the silver metallic and I love the addition of the tights. I'm loving all the textures in the outfit. MMm a Chinese feast sound amazing!!! Haha, I love that you went home and changed pants. I definitely do that as well. If I know I'm going to be eating a lot I wear stretchy baggy clothes!! Oh, the things we do for food ; )

  12. I agree! I would never sacrifice my comfort completely for fashion! Esp when it comes to chowing down on delicious food ;P Ur weekend sounds like it was a whole lot of fun~ Never been to a hooka bar before or "Big 2" (going to look that up now hehe). I love that ur leather jacket is not the usual black & with the metallic shorts for special & fun outings! Big love also for the heels, never would have thought they would be from H&M, niiiiiice!

  13. I absolutely LOVE these shorts! They would go so well with either a day or night look. Don't you wish they made the pattern on the tights the entire length though!? Regardless, very cute outfit and that book clutch just screams your name!
