Hey ya'll, I apologize for not updating my blog more frequently, but these last 2 weeks have been horrifically busy! I had the misfortune of having all of my midterms and papers due over the course of 2 weeks...but I'm grateful that I made it though, and did quite well on most of my exams!
My first look here is centered around this amazing jacket I bought at Zara. I have been looking for a classy, yet casual jacket for a while now, and this lovely blazer-esque jacket, complete with unique details that make it casual enough to be worn with just about anything, really caught my eye. I chose to pair it with this navy shirt, with a cool white colorblock collar, as well as a pair of slim fit navy pants. For shoes, I thought my brown bluchers would compliment the jacket's brown leather details perfectly! I usually wear these shoes with no show socks, but I found these cute grey socks in my dad's sock drawer, and I couldn't resist. The result is an outfit that is casual, yet is infused with a touch of class, which I always adore.
My second look illustrates how to make a super comfy and cozy outfit into one that does not look careless and sloppy. I'm really into turtlenecks this Autumn/Winter 2013, and I'm absolutely loving this one I got from Zegna. I bought this lovely shawl neck cardigan at Zara, and I thought the two would go together nicely for the first snowfall. I added a touch of class with some slim black pants and my favourite black Chelsea boots, which really refined the otherwise cozy aspects of this outfit. Needless to say, this outfit kept me nice and warm during our first super chilly day, and heralded a bunch of compliments, which is always nice! For my next few posts, I will add a bit of colour to my outfits, since I've noticed that I tend to gravitate around black/grey/brown/navy. I'm admit that I guilty of turning to this dull colour palette, and will work extra hard to incorporate some brighter colours into my future outfits~
