A few weekends back, G and I went out for an early dinner after running errands all afternoon. I already felt kind of underdressed, but was so famished that I didn't give my sweatshirt/lack of make-up/Birkenstocks combination a second thought. Naturally, we were seated next to an impeccably put-together girl immediately to my left. She was wearing all white (a risky move when soy sauce is involved) with an oversized black blazer thrown over her shoulders. It looked so simple and chic that I made a mental note to recreate the entire outfit soon thereafter.
