Old Closet + Engagement Party

    One of the best ways to keep myself on track during this challenging year will be utilizing what I already have in my closet.  This means learning to appreciate old pieces that I may have deemed “out of style.”  One such article of clothing is a slouchy, black halter I bought in college; it’s simple, but worn with the wrong skirt or pair of jeans, it appears outdated and even cheap looking.  

    I decided to pair it with androgynous-style pants to balance out the skin-baring shirt; I also added a pop of color to the otherwise black-and-white ensemble with bright nail polish and a mint clutch.  I wore this outfit for a surprise engagement party for best friends, it was a perfect evening with the best people I know – congrats again, Rachel & Gregg!
