Polo

To be very honest I was watching Monte Carlo a couple of days before I wore this and was inspired (for lack of a better word) by the polo scene. I’ve always loved the whole classic Ralph Lauren look, and decided to give it a go myself.

Photo 30-11-14 5 25 03 pmI wore a skinny fit white polo tee from Ralph Lauren with ripped jeans and ankle boots. I think it would look perfect with knee high brown leather boots too, but there was no space in my suitcase! I stained my lips with MAC Diva and went from a high ponytail to a french braid. I really love french braids and it fits really well with the equestrian look (in my opinion at least:)). It’s definitely different from what I usually wear and I absolutely loved how refreshing it felt.

And now moving away from clothes, I went across the bridge to Point Bonita that day and the views are spectacular. I sadly didn’t have time to wait for the tunnel to open and go all the way to the lighthouse, but what I got to see was more than enough. Hearing the waves crashing is one of the best sounds. If you’re in an active mood, there are some great hiking trails in the area too!

Crew neck sweater + boyfriend cut-offs = perfect, lazy, I just rolled out of bed looking this cool outfit. (I’m only half kidding here:)) Grey is one of my favourite fall colours. It’s very basic, but slightly more unexpected than black.

Photo 26-9-14 6 20 41 pmI just got these denim shorts from Ralph Lauren and I already love the distressed detailing. I was also really drawn to this pair by the patriotic (though I’m not even American) pockets peeking out of the bottom of the shorts. It adds a little special touch. These cut-offs have a very lived-in, worn-in look, which is the perfect way I like my denim. It hits at my waist, a bit higher than my usual shorts and (at least I think) gives the wearer a really nice shape. They’re my new favourite pair, though I say that about every new pair I get.

Photo 26-9-14 6 22 37 pmThe sweater is slightly slouchy, slightly cropped, but definitely way more than slightly cool. I’ve always had a love for sweaters, but I usually go for plain knit sweaters; this one (just from Forever 21 though I don’t usually shop here) is a little different. To be honest, I’m pretty sure the words/names of places are just random, but it gives the look one of those, ‘I’m young and free’ kind of vibes. I love the black on the grey, as well as the font of the words.

I’m unfortunately pretty short on shoes here due to certain luggage limits, but I think black knee-high gladiator sandals would suit this outfit perfectly. Add a little black shoulder bag with gold detailing for a cute way to stash your phone and lip gloss.
