ttF Fashion Diary: Paper Bag Writer

ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Paper Bag Writer
When I bought these shorts at an E! wardrobe sale I was hesitant about wearing them. But then I saw Victoria Beckham looking as chic as ever in paper bag waist pants at LAX and fell in love with the look. Since then, I’ve worn the shorts with button-up shirts, tanks and today a basic tee and cardigan. On top, it was a similar look to an outfit I sported back in March. But since I was wearing pastel bottoms instead of jeans, I felt a simple t-shirt would be more appropriate. Even though my I wanted to wear flats today, nude heels were a must to elongate my legs. And the Jimmy Choo for H&M necklace is seriously one of my best purchases. Every time I or a friend wears it, compliments are inevitable. It’s like magic.
