Sail the Ocean Blue


I remember surfing the Teen Vogue forums two years ago, and one of the hottest outfits was always the basic white tee with tights. I revisited some of my favorite Girl of The Weeks and forum postings recently and I got inspired to try the big tee with tights combo.

Here we are!

Whats not so basic is the boots, I guess. And the silk blue scarf at my ankle. But whats a girl to do?

Wearing vintage denim jacket, Sam Edelman boots, Target (Hanes) tee, Nordstrom tights, and vintage scarf.

This is what I call simply and stunning !
I love the use of dotted tights to add more texture to the basic pieces ..
Can't get over those boots esp that u tied the blue ribbon as an anklet..

You look amazing! Not a simple white tee and tights anymore..
It would be mine

Silmi Sabila said...

I heart the blue scarf at your ankle

this outfit would look nice...on a 20 year old girl...

arent you wearing anything underneath the "dress"? it seems far too short for a 14 year old girl, especially with those boots...i think it doesnt give young girls the right image.

i think its kind of ironic that you're standing by the street.

Lily said...

^in the third picture, you can see that she's wearing bike shorts

This is so cute! The little blue ribbon is adorable.

Alice said...

really cute :) I love the little ankle tie

I have two questions:
What do you wear for gym clothes?
Do you wear the majority of the outfits on here to school, or are a lot of them outfits you wear at home? If so, what kinds of things do you wear to school?

Jacqueline said...

coco. said...

Raquel said...

I love that outfit!
Where'd you get the shirt? I can never find ones long that aren't also huge.

I'm freaking out right now because I saw that you are 14! I thought you were thirty, I a good way of course.
You must get that all the time.

how would you describe your style?

Fashlynable said...

My two favorite patterned tights in the last two outfits! You must be reading my mind ;). Also, I love the idea of the silk scarf around the ankle. It definitely makes the outfit stand out from anything else I have seen. Are those boots hard to walk in? They look insane!
