Okay, so unfortunately these photos didn’t turn out the best. It was super windy and the flaps on my jacket kept flying all over the place…but the outfit was SO cute, so maybe you can use your imagination a little bit? This was already the second time I shot this outfit, and I wasn’t about to do it a third time. So here it is. Not perfect, but hey, at least it’s raw.
I felt so chic in this outfit. I wore it to a Friday at school and felt like a businesswoman on Casual Fridays. The outfit is super put together, even though it has jeans. And can we talk about my collar jewels for a moment? How amazing are they?! I got the brooch (?) in my stocking for Christmas. It’s super old fashioned, which I love, and it jazzes up any collared shirt, big time.
You can only tell in the super light pictures, but my jacket is actually plaid. I’m not a crazy pattern mixer, but this was easy since the jacket’s pattern is so subtle and the neon rectangles on the blouse aren’t bold. I recommend mixing subtle patterns for any of you that are timid about prints, like me.
I don’t know if the sun was in my face or what, but I look like I’m getting blinded in all of these photos… Anyways, thanks for stopping by today! If you’d like to see more, follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
