Waxing and Waning

Title Unknown La Lune foiled muscle tee, Urban Outfitters (Made in the USA!). White shirtdress, TJ Maxx (similar). Red patent belt, Forever 21 (similar). Deena & Ozzy heels, Urban Outfitters (sold out).  Rounded tortoiseshell sunglasses, Target. Timex watch. Vintage Dooney & Bourke purse. 

     If I had to choose one word to describe my fashion aesthetic, it would be "classic". While I despise complimentary or even self-depricating proclamations (I'm so weird! I'm such a nerd, OMG. I'd consider myself an intellectual.), I've found that I prefer basic pieces that will stand up to any fashion whims I may go through. But my favorite outfits are rarely a uniform of my classic pieces. Rather, they include some fun, trendier pieces to balance out my simpler tastes. 
     I first spotted this tee shirt at the Urban Outfitters in Atlanta over spring break. At the time, I really was focusing on rebuilding some classic aspects of my wardrobe, so I only left with my black high waisted jeans and a plain white oxford button up. I've worn both of those pieces countless times since then, but the thought of this moon emblazoned shirt never quite left my mind. When our local Urban Outfitters opened up on May 2nd, I went in looking for just one thing. I had seen online that it was supposedly an online exclusive, but I also saw the beautiful words "Made in the USA". Believe me, that label is hard to come by in large chain stores.
     Anyways, I left with both the shirt, which I wouldn't exactly call "classic", along with the most badass shoes in my wardrobe. Once again, you'd think something like half-boots/half-sandals wouldn't get the most wear, but I find them to be a perfect balance with my simple and minimal pieces. 
     All of these factors combined to make this one of my favorite outfits of all time. I definitely think the pictures show that. I get a bit sassy when I'm at my most confident (Ok. "A bit" is an understatement as anyone who is close to me will tell you), but it sure makes for a fun time taking pictures. 
     What outfit makes you feel like a million bucks?
