Tassels & Lavender

Last year, I did a post featuring one of my fave and comfiest tees. That particular outfit had two strikes against it in Dan’s eyes. 1) it was too loose ‘flowy’ and 2) ‘what’s the deal with the droopy pocket?’ He always referred to it as my drug-pocket tee. But really, what does one put in a silly little pocket like that? So when it was go-time to shoot this outfit, he rolled his eyes. Another drug pocket tee? Yes, Dan, yet another ‘too flowy’ top with a pocket that isn’t very useful. But what it lacks in functionality, it makes up in softness.  How pretty is this lavender hue?

On the weekends, I’m defn a jeans and tee kind of gal. And with my crazy-packed weekends since coming home, I’m all about the comfort. But comfort doesn’t have to mean boring. Am I right, ladies? Adding a few tassels into the mix ups the fun – factor on this simple outfit. The piece de resistance are my red handmade and hand-embroidered slippers I picked up at a market in India; one of many souvenirs I purchased along the way. #treatyoself, always.

Outfit Details:

Sunglasses: (Voyager 15 emerald mirrored lenses) via ShopBop last year. This style is out of stock at most places, but here’s a similar pair also by Wesward Leaning, $185.

Tassel Necklace: Zacasha via Ku De Ta, $48. I picked this up during the Southie Stroll and saved an additional 15%!

Long Sleeve Pocket Tee: LA Made via Habit, $12! When I purchased this, there were still a few left, so defn swing by there if you have a chance. I also found plenty of LA Made tees at

    Sooo I’ve recently become dangerously addicted to tassels and am scooping them up everyyywhere (clothes, jewelry, bags, AH!!) and am pretty nervous I’m going to get sick of them soon!! Just need to remember that they are the perfect addition jeans + tees outfits 🙂 Love, love, love this look on you!
