I Dream of DIY

Every few months I do this weird thing where I decide on a certain "look" for the season: Disco Housewife, Downtown Powerbitch, Rocker Pageant Princess, etc. It rarely pans out ('cause really, who can afford a new wardrobe every few months?), but it's fun to play around with these little capsule collections in my head.This time around, I'm still loving the '70s secretary look, and I feel like even if

They're both integral to my wardrobe palette. These pants (a result of the lazy DIY, if you recall) are so cool and breezy--perfect for the hot and humid weather we've been having. I added some cognac-colored leather accessories and gold jewelry for interest. Tank, H+M; pants, thrifted; shoes,
