This look started as a copycat: one of the other teachers wore a denim shirt with black jeans and a grey cardigan and it was super cute. I started with this denim shirt and my black “magic” pants, but then went rogue and added the fur vest and boots. The neon bracelet adds a pop of color.
This was a morning when I was fresh out of ideas. I knew I needed boots because of the snow, and then I threw on a bunch of comfy layers. The blazer-y jacket helps workify it a little.
I would like to note that this tee was an item I checked off my Want But Can’t Find list. I had been dying for a rockerish tee that 1. had some color in it and 2. didn’t involve a band logo. I was psyched when I found this one on extreme sale at Zara!
Hooray, jeans to work! Thank goodness I only had to wear real work clothes for one day this week – I need a little time to get back into the mood. I’ve been hanging onto this shirt for over a month, and finally wore it out. It’s a bit sheer, so I layered a nude cami under it . I don’t mind a hint of bra when I’m out at night, but I don’t need to share my undergarments with 14-year-olds. (It was so cold in my room, I ended up wearing the vest 90% of the day anyway.)
It took me a while to finally bust these American Eagle jeans out, too. These are the same as the black ones I bought in store. I liked those so much that I ordered these in blue online. I tried to wear these to the Bulls game with my tee and Converse, but I looked like I could easily fit in with the 8th Grade.
