I'm Caitlin Wilson, a twenty-something midwesterner with a penchant for neutrals, donuts, and makeup. Thanks for reading!

Broken promise

Well, you can see the promise I made to myself didn’t end up translating into today’s outfit. But after you see an outfit like this, you’re bound to want to imitate it. Pencil skirts and blazers can wait for another day (like a cooler, fall day, with tights and a scarfcan you tell I’m excited for fall?). Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse: JC Penney via Goodwill
Shorts: Gap (similar)
Booties: Madden Girl via DSW (would love this version)
Ring: H&M
Sunnies: H&M (similar)
Belt: Unknown (super old)
Clutch: BCBG (gift, similar here)
Lipstick: Revlon’s Siren 

In a traditional office, shorts and leopard booties probably wouldn’t go over well. Luckily, in my “office,” I could wear these booties every day (and part of me actually wants to). I love the casually tucked-in blouse and how slouchy the shirt feels. This is definitely a different look for me, but that’s what happens when inspiration finds youyou can’t help but imitate it, no matter how different it is.
