Basic instincts

My old college uniform of jeans and a tee shirt comes back to me so easily, like a basic instinct. Despite my love of the foofy, colorful, pretty dresses sometimes I just need to go back to it. I found this Grateful Dead gem at Beacon's closet on a recent shopping trip with Callie and Nicole. I love the golden color, and that its just a little wonky from years of wear by who knows how many Dead fans.
Its also interesting to note that this outfit garnered a lot of attention on the street. When I left work on Friday I was stopped three times by people complimenting my style, shirt and shoes. Maybe I was just exuding confidence in my old standbys.

  1. I've been wanting to wear nothing but jeans and tees lately too, but I have no jeans! This is a problem. You DO look awesome though! And your sunglasses rock.

    Loving this outfit!

  5. AHH! I love this shirt! The band, the color, just awesome! I need shoes like that! I can't wear the wedges that everyone else wears, those look like they have a decent heel :)

  6. That shirt was such a score. Must admit I'm a littleeeeeeee jealous... Seriously though, you look killer in all these photos so I definitely understand why people had to stop and say something. Everything about this look is so effortless & sexy.

  7. These are basically flatforms, and SUPER comfy. :D

  8. I always find my best vintage when I shop with you. FACT.

  9. I own like 2 pairs of pants. Pants are the hardest/worst. Thanks girl :)

    PS how do you feel about the new Doctor being Sid's dad from S1 of Skins?

  10. Wow! What a fantastic find. This is such a great 'go-to' look. It seems like all I wanna wear right now is jeans and a t shirt.

  11. It's that quiet confidence I reckon! You look awesome here, I will always love this colour on you
