Concrete Catwalk // Toffee Trousers

IMG_6239.jpg

IMG_6239I walked into a local boutique in this outfit last weekend, and a lady came rushing up to me while she gushed the following:"Those trousers! They're the exact same color as my dog, Toffee!"I am rarely rendered speechless, but this was one of those moments where an appropriate response simply eluded me.Something like, "Wow - So great!" would have totally sufficed, but instead...I stammered before replying, "Well, I guess I'll have to start calling these my puppy pants!"*WHAT?!*Get a grip, Jessie.In an effort to prove that awkward moments CAN turn out to have happy endings: We continued to chat for at least 15 more minutes, and it turns out we have a lot in common... Now ALSO including a lunch date in Hoboken next week.*Moral of this story is that bonding over fashion is a great way to make new friends, and the secondary moral is that I need more items of clothing that make people excited to tell me about their fur-babies. ;)*Yes, we will both be bringing our pups.IMG_6214Top to Bottom // Warby Parker 'Dean' sunnies, Capwell necklace*, Sachin + Babi top* (similar), Old Navy sweater + denim jacket, LOFT skinny cropped chinos, Brahmin woven leather handbag*, Ivanka Trump flats // *Notes a gifted item.IMG_6289IMG_6256IMG_6227IMG_6211IMG_6217IMG_6212IMG_6224IMG_6243IMG_6284
