Occasionally someone asks me about my personal style and how I dress every day, and more often than not I answer “jeans, a white t-shirt, and converse” with a company hoodie thrown in the mix for when I’m cold. I’m fortunate enough to have a “real world” job that allows that kind of casual wear on a day-to-day basis, but it gets pretty darn boring. Especially to someone like me, who’s rather creative by nature. So I’ve decided to overhaul things a bit and move towards more “my style” and less “but it’s comfortable“.
So I’m going to put together a few outfits I’ve already worn or are planning on wearing this “fall” (it’s been rather cool here for a Chicago August). I’ve done some wardrobe updating with new pieces recently, but am still falling back on some classic basics I just can’t live without–white T’s, black boots, my black blazer, skinny jeans. And yes, since I’m sure you’re wondering, I’d model in every one of these outfits 😉 I’ll be doing this in installments, to keep the posts shorter.
Note that some of the items I’m using in these looks aren’t the exact same as what I have at home, but they’re close enough based on what I was able to find online. As always, I’ve linked what you can buy online 🙂
Look One: 09/09/09
I figured I’d start with what I wore today 🙂 This one’s going to be tough, because some of it (mainly the blazer) you can’t get online 😦 I’ve paired a longer greyish purple blazer with a white T, black vest, denim leggings, and black boots. I’ve left my accessories minimal. Believe it or not, this is a pretty comfortable outfit! Leggings are way more comfortable than jeans, and these offer a bit more coverage for the office than standard leggings (and they have back pockets–win!). I’ve gone ahead and linked what I could.
