cut-offs and louboutins
There's something I love about an old, worn in pair of cut-offs paired with high-heeled Louboutins. I think it's the mix of casual and sexy that I always try to achieve. Now that it's been unbearably hot, this outfit is just perfect
These old shorts are pretty much my favorite cut-offs right now. Or ever. I've had them for over a decade and they are so worn in and comfy that I can't imagine wearing anything else. I also love these Paige denim ones, they are a bit more covered up, but still great for a hot day. The cut-offs from Urban Outfitters are a great price as well.
I am wearing my plain sheer silk tank with them because it's just too hot for a whole shirt ;)
Check out this Hanro silk tank, I know it's lingerie, but so is the top I'm wearing. Because it's 100% silk, it works well as a semi sheer top, especially in the summer.
I also love this Otte top, the scoop hem is just like my top (which is La Fee Verte). The hem gives the tank a flowy look, and it's especially great worn untucked with leggings or pants all year round.
This BCBG top is another great option that comes with a tank inside so it's a bit more covered up. And it's on sale!
And of course, my piece de resistance, Christian Louboutin gladiator booties. I know that boots with cut-offs in the summer is not season appropriate and definitely goes against some of the other things I've said, but come on, look at them.
Actually these shoes are often called sandal booties, and are more a summer shoe. At first it might look like these are impractical; the open toe is useless in winter, and the boot style is wrong for summer. But I think the opposite is true. The open toe is okay all seasons as long as it's not too cold (or raining/snowing). And it allows the shoe to pass as a summer shoe. So it's actually kind of like a two-fer.
And that is how I do cut-offs!
Hope you all stay cool out there, and have a great weekend! xo----
