I won’t lie… as fashion-frenzied as I am, jeans and a plain white tee may still be my favorite thing to wear. Snagged this Alexander Wang cape on Gilt months ago, and while I love it to pieces, it’s actually a bit tough to style. Found it works best with something simple.

My mom picked up this gem of a bag at Tar-jay for me last week…sure it’s a PS1 knockoff, but it was also $30 instead of, like, $3000. Thanks, Mom!

We’re fleeing to Vegas on Saturday, and I cannot wait for the weekend to arrive.

LOVE this outfit!!! My favorite shirt ever is a white tee from Alternative Apparel; fits right no matter what, looks good with any bottom, if I’m staring blankly into my closet it is what I grab.

P.S-Some of your images came out really enormous on google reader for me on this post. It hasn’t happened to me before with your blog, so just wanted to mention.

Hey Laura! I think you paired the cape (love it, by the way) perfectly with the rest of your outfit. Sometimes simple is always the way to go. I, too, got a Target bag ;) About those shoes…do they fit true to size + are they comfortable?

The cape is great! And you’re right – it’s probably best with something simple. I’m having a hard time imagining it with a dress or any kind of skirt that isn’t really simple. Also – where did you take these photos?? I love the location surrounded by all the building! I miss having a roof where I can take pictures like I did at my old apartment! Have fun in Vegas!!

Plain white tees and jeans are always infallible, and even more paired with those shades, they are amazing!
