I wish I could leave my apartment every day with no makeup on, but this is the next best thing.
Plus, their official product name is "Lauren leather ballet flats," so they were basically made for me.
As far as basic oxfords go, this one from Uniqlo is pretty much the best I've come across. I already own it in several colors, and plan to buy the linen version when it gets really hot out. They're really well-made (last for months even after loads of use) and fit nice--close to the body but not snug and just the right amount of menswear inspired. Oh, and it's $20. Seriously you can't beat that.
Blindingly bright white jeans are not attractive, and they only really look good on a very small subset of the population. But I like the look of light jeans. Enter these skinnies from J. Brand.
