The Lust List: Matching Two Piece

The Lust List

I’ve always had an inner tomboy streak. It makes sense, as I’ve been an athlete for most of my life. But I also happen to love fashion. My biggest dilemma in middle school was: How would I play soccer or football at lunch if I wore a skirt to school? My solution was usually to wear athletic shorts underneath the skirt, or pick a dress that went well with Sambas, so as not to sacrifice a cute outfit.

While I no longer have the option to fit in a quick game of soccer or football at lunch, I find myself reaching for dresses or other instant outfits this season more than ever.

Zara Top | Zara Shorts

I appreciate the convenience of a matching shorts and top two piece, because it’s like wearing a dress without the constraints. When I found this two-piece set from Zara I thought, “Wow, I really could have used this 15 years ago.”

This neutral, textured short-and-blouse pair has been a perfect transitional outfit for spring. The thick material makes up for the short sleeves and the high-waisted shorts up the style factor. The pattern is like a spring version of a buffalo print you’d wear in fall or winter—and I love buffalo plaid.  I also love how the leather piping detail on the sleeves and neckline toughen up a feminine look.

H&M Blush Coat (similar) | Club Monaco Tassel Earrings | Zara grey heels (similar)

With the weather still unpredictable well into spring, I can pair the set with a longer menswear coat, like this blush one from H&M.

We’re clearly loving neutrals this season, mainly because they provide a blank slate for great accessories. When I found these understated fringe earrings at Club Monaco, I knew they would add the perfect pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.

Speaking of neutrals, these grey Zara heels are a no-brainer when it comes to sassing up an outfit for work (I’m wearing them right now) or cocktails. They’re unique, but comfortable—which happens to be my favorite fashion combination.
