Never gonna give you up (witchy vibez)

I love getting things in the mail, especially when said things are sick pieces from my friends at Oak. They're known for stocking all the cool designers and all sorts of black and drop-crotch moments but their in-house label is always, always killer. In fact, my current obsession with skirts probably began at new year's when I wore my favorite mystic skirt from them.

I'm pretty certain this skirt will be my most-worn item this summer. It's made of lightweight jersey and has a slit up one side. I love the draped detail and the circular sort of seam. Unfussy skirts need to be worn with unfussy tops so I paired it with my favorite deep cowl tee from Oak (I have it in 2 colors, it is DEFINITELY essential in the summer).

I have been wanting a pair of sheer pants for a while. True, the very concept of sheer pants is totally backwards but whatever, when I saw the leggings I knew this was my chance to try them out. These are a size large so the are loose around the leg and I can "cuff" them, which is ridiculous and therefore awesome. The seams around the legs make them cooler and also take the look away from stretched-out Duane Reade hosiery to cool futuristic wear.

Since they are sheer I'll probz wear them with dresses that are just -this- side of short, this one I call my "nunnery" dress from Acne because of the high neck. I have a vision of layering the leggings under these Karl Lagerfeld for H&M tap shorts, though, and as SOON as I find them, I think it's gonna happen.

Both worn with Prada oxfords because by now they have melded with my feet.

Thank you Oak and THANKS Tommy!

adorable outfits.
i tend to wear the same pieces and or outfits throughout the summer months, even though i tell myself to mix it up or buy new things. basically jersey material in black or a neutral.
