This is my favorite kid of outfit: generally classic with a serious bite. The blouse/sweater vest/pencil skirt/loafer combo is nothing new; but add in mixed prints, bleach stains, and studs and you’ve got yourself something to look twice at.
Sorry again for the iPhone photos! This outfit was toasty and cozy for a winter day. The blouse is my long anticipated (almost)Perfect Chambray shirt – more detailed pictures on that to come.
When choosing necklaces the night before, I tend to hang a few options on the hanger holding my planned shirt. After hanging these two on top of each other as separate option, I decided they looked perfect together. They create a nice chunky look to stand up to the chunkiness of the cable knit. I like how this outfit is very preppy from afar, but gets more and more Punk Rock the closer you look.
This is the most professional I’ve looked in a while. I recently redid my closet, which is pretty huge, but only consisted of one long hanging bar. The new set up involves multiple hanging bars and several shelves, which has gone a long way in getting my stuff organized.
Part of the organization process involveD rediscovering pieces I’d forgotten about, including this vest. I had a gift certificate to Daffy’s, which was closing soon and only exists on the East Coast. So, in a semi panic in the Philadelphia store, I ended up with this vest (and, oddly enough, a Rachel Roy Chicago Bulls shirt). I probably would not have bought this with “real money”, but I’m so glad I did. It’s very clearly professional looking, but an interesting piece at the same time. And I have half a mind to wear it alone with jeans the next time I’m feeling extra saucy.
Yes, this is a hilarious pony sweater. Yes, I wore a (faux) leather skirt to school. Yes, ANOTHER bubble necklace. And yes, naked legs in December! I am a ridiculous human being and the 66 degree weather on Monday was (almost) equally ridiculous.
