this is an outfit from the past weekend away and i really loved how it all came together. having a small bag with only a few pieces to choose from really makes you attempt interesting things. i would probably not think of pairing these two very opposite pieces; a casual cropped tee and high-waisted trousers. but in my mind, the combination works. these madewell trousers are a constant for me at work, but i rarely wear them in more casual situations. i wanted to do a bit more with them and i think the combination of a cropped tee and high waistline created a new sort of balance. with my jacibo boots folded over i was pretty mismatched, but all in a good way.
