Aritzia + Birkenstocks Haul2.8.15
I discovered a love for cropped pieces, especially in the summer heat. Having found myself reaching for the same one cropped tank I got from Zara recently I decided to add another one to the collection. I chose the Wilfred Durée T-Shirt, a loose subtle crop top plastered with the Wilfred logo across the front. I haven't worn tops with text across the front in a very long time but I felt like getting out the expected this time.
Since the beginning of the year I've been eyeing up the Wilfred Rêve T-shirt, so when I saw it on sale I just couldn't pass it up. I picked it up in black as I don't seem to have a black t-shirt anymore so this filled in the gaps. Like a classic crew-neck, this is comfortable to wear but has the extra subtle lace detail on the bottom. I'm all about the little tweaks to a tee, which is why I also picked up the Wilfred Capucine T-shirt in Crystal with the block of silk at the bottom. I love the Capucine style, hence why I own three of this style in different colours, but I just loved the silk panel for that slightly different, more sophisticated look.
The last top I got was the Parklife Podium Tank, a go-to basic for a good workout. As much as I like Lululemon, they are just way too overpriced most of the time so I'm trying Parklife from Aritzia out for a change.
Completely out of my usual style and not even in the sale was the Babaton Rico Skirt. Yes, that is indeed a maxi skirt and if you knew me in real life you would be very confused right now. It is so unlike me to wear a skirt, let alone a maxi skirt but I really wanted to try something new as everyone else seems to think that a maxi skirt or dress would look great on me. We'll see how this goes.
In addition to clothing I picked up my first pair of Birkenstocks! I feel like Birkenstocks are kind of a love-hate thing but I've always liked them. I chose the Birkenstock Mayari in black as I imagine they will go with just about anything. No more Aldo shoes that break after one summer for me! These better hold up as well as they claim to.
