surplus.






h&m divided black stripe button down; industrie (australian brand) skinny cargo pant; new york & company quilted bag; fashionology.nl bird skull necklace, hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet and scarab ring via tobi.com; forever 21 watch; topshop suede wedges.

i like to think of myself as a skinny pant enthusiast - i have piles and piles of them (probably more than i need - hence, surplus), and i'm always searching for more. i've been pining over a pair of olive green cargos for who knows how long now, and as soon as i saw these on dajana from leflassh.com and found out they were a third of the price of the j brand houlihans, i had to have them. thanks girl for helping me out and sending them to me!

i've also been carrying this purse as a clutch and it's making me want to expand my bag collection. anyone know where i can get an inexpensive, tan-colored clutch like this gorgeous vintage one (of course i lost that auction on eBay)?

I'm so jealous of your wedges. But clutch bags? Not my thing. I have a large tendency to lose things :S
It would be mine

I want those J Brand cargos so much! Can't justify the price though. Those are pretty damn close :) And look great! Great style girl.

This is great. The loose shirt tucked into the skinny cargos is sooo my look this summer.

Too bad I'm afraid of wearing skinny pants with huge pockets on the sides. I'm looking for a version without as I do not want to draw attention to my "childbearing hips!"

leflassh. said...

yay, you look awesome.
they look killer on you.
and i love that shirt!!

i'm glad you finally found some cargo pants! they look great.

marie said...

I am in love with your pants! especially with those wedges. <3

Deanna W said...

when i saw the cargo pants I immediately thought J Brand. but those are way out of my price range. is there any way to buy these industrie ones online? i cant find them anywhere : (
gorgeous shoes and purse btw. i've been looking forever to try and find a purse that resembles the chanel ones. i dont think new york and company makes the one you have anymore.
oh and i tried on the gray moto pants at H&M today and they fit awful...were yours high waisted? i also didnt like the fact that it had no back pockets.

IP Lawyers Melbourne said...

I got anything you got there but that pair of shoes. I will definitely get one pair soon

Love the look!
Happy weekend!

Tania said...

They really suit you, and anyway, 2 is better than one, for the most part. So I'm sure surplus is better than nothing!!

caylee said...

thank you everyone!
this has been one of my favorite outfits of mine to date.
sorry about the two-tone face and neck; the lighting is so weird in my basement, and i have a bad tan from applying sunblock on my face and neck but not my chest! :/

and thanks for the congrats on 1000 followers. ahh so amazing!
xx




fashionclocked - i can't thank her enough for getting them for me!

vanja - thank you! xx

georgia - i lose everything! that's why i like clutch bags that have a detachable strap :)

ginger - yah i could not justify that price. but these are just as good!

under urooba's umbrella - thank you so much!

melissa - it's definitely my summer look too! just sub shorts for the cargos when it gets hot. and the pockets on the side really aren't that bad at drawing attention to problem areas. not enough to turn me away from them!

leflassh - i couldn't be happier! thank you 1000x :)

studded hearts - and you are always so sweet; thank you!

elora - oh me too; and thank you! xx

deanna w - unfortunately there isn't; believe me, i tried to find an online retailer before i asked her to get them for me. yeah, this quilted purse is around a year old, so i doubt new york & company still makes it. check eBay - they have tons of chanel-esque bags like this for way cheap! and the moto jeans were very high waisted - i kinda like that though! sorry they didn't work out for you deanna :( they are on sale at my store right now! makes me mad since i just bought them for full price, lol.

tania - lol - and thank you!

highdee - aww lol, thank you!

marta - marta, i heart you!

morning cloak - i too feel like they are so fresh for spring :)

francheska - thank you thank you thank you! xx
