|Jacket: c/o Shop Lately Top & Skirt: thrifted Boots: Urbanog Earrings: c/o Shop Lately|
This mixed media jacket from Shop Lately is my new favorite piece of clothing! I've been eyeing this style of jacket for the longest time, so when I had a chance to get my hands on it, I didn't waste a minute. In fact, just the other day I also purchased a leather sleeved blazer (just wait until I show it on here...hehe, it's the only blazer I would happily wear), so there's something about leather sleeves that get to me. The contrast it provides is such a welcome touch of edginess to any structured clothing!
Also, how fun are these earrings? It's been a while since I've worn statement making earrings like these, but I love the dangling fringe and rounded hoop design. Such a fun pair to throw on and instantly feel more stylish, even if you're wearing a simple outfit!
This is what I wore to my last critique for Design class, and when I sat down, a girl I've noticed who has awesome style, complimented me on my outfit.
"I love your jacket! You always have the coolest shoes too."
So we talked fashion for a bit, and when I voiced how I'd always admired her style as well, she said, "Yeah, I get a lot of weird looks for it. I bet you do too."
That made me start laughing because man, that is so true! Just because we don't wear jeans and a hoodie everyday we get these oddball looks for breaking the norm. Its definitely refreshing to be able to share that feeling with someone else!
Maybe I'll have to see if I can convince her to appear on my blog...hmmmm. Haha, she has this awesome urban bohemian style guys! Our class is always so quiet though, so it may be awkward to try and strike up a conversation again. If we talk more I'll definitely try slipping that in though.
PS: Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers concerning my previous post. It means so much!
