#OOTD • Tell Me Whatcha Want …

Banana Republic Sprty Top

so i haven’t done a post regarding about my OOTDs in a long time.  part of the reason is because i don’t want to take pictures of a junky room.  that’s just not hot.  the other is because i wasn’t too sure that my clothes were all that inspiring or noteworthy.  but then i went shopping and i got inspired again!

i got this mesh inset sweatshirt for the low at Banana Republic.  i didn’t know it was a sweatshirt, but i had to get it because of the material and it’s super sharp!

for pants, i opted for my gap workout leggings.  they are great because they have this shiny detail that makes them look like a pair of lulu’s without the price point.

what is super funny is that melissa maker from Clean My Space and i were twinning hardcore!
