Elegant and Frayed

Tobi top, A.N.A shorts, Zara heels, F21 jewelry, Francesca's clutch, sunglasses

I sometimes love to wear a very casual outfit like frayed denim shorts with an elegant hair style. Somehow even though I am wearing shorts, I still feel somewhat dressed up. 

I ordered these lovely sandals and when I stepped outside for the first time, I realized that they were navy. They looked black in the house but as soon as natural daylight hit them, it was revealed that they were, in fact, navy. No worries; they were only $10 and I still love them!






Have a great day!
