Style by J.Crew Gets Hip-py

Today's outfit is brought to you by J.Crew (shocker!).

I found it as I was browsing the J.Crew website (as I do pretty much everyday) to see new arrivals, and to get outfit inspiration. Quite honestly, looking at the website is a mild form of torture because I always find at least three things I wish I owned... and then I think about those things and come up with killer GJU outfits.. and then I remember I'm broke as a joke.. and then I ex out. It's a vicious cycle. Vicious.

But sometime between landing on the home page and force-quitting myself out of it, I found this outfit. 

Here's the thing: I usually stay away (far away) from tying things around my waist. It draws attention to my widest area (my hips/love handles/my "tire") that on most occasions I'd rather not draw more attention to. But something about this look worked.. and I wanted to give it a shot. I can't tell if it makes me look more "hip-py" than I already am.. but I definitely don't hate it. I don't think I do at least.
