First post of 2018! I know, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog. Between the holidays, being extremely busy and hitting a road block. I think I will go into more detail in another post… just because I think this is something that should be out there for others to read and possibly find relatable. I do apologize for being absent on Thuy’s Avenue but I’m back! I collaborated with an amazing local photographer for this post. You can check out her page and see for yourself. We met through blogging and I have never had an actual photoshoot out in the public. I was so nervous but she made it so fun and easy. If you’re a blogger in the Greensboro area, please check her out!
Today’s post is ONE look, that’s it. One look for multiple situations. Whether you are going to brunch, shopping, meeting a friend for coffee (common theme in all the pictures LOL) or going to grab a few drinks, this look is easy and will make you feel chic in all ways. Many of us are working 40+ hours a week (gotta pay them student loans off, nah’msayin??) and are usually always on the go! An outfit that’s versatile so that you can go from one place to another is always a plus.
Some days you don’t have time to run home, try to throw something together in a few minutes and head out the door. When I get ready, it usually takes me an hour. I will try an outfit on, hate it and change again. That’s why every night I plan my outfit for work the next morning because I know I will take an extra 20 minutes just figuring out what to wear. So I put together an outfit that I think is perfect for any setting!
Let’s just start with a basic faux leather jacket. I feel like most people have one of these in their closet. I’ve had mine for 5 years! I think leather jackets are so easy to style and are extremely versatile! I paired my jacket with a mock neck sweater. This one was on sale at Loft for $16 last year. I love the look of the high neck under the jacket. It just looks very chic to me. My favorite touch to any outfit is a pair of high waist jeans. I get all of mine from H&M just because I love the fit. They are very long on me (hence, why I have to roll mine up) but I’m also 5’0!
I wanted a touch of color in this look so I added my favorite pair of ankle boots. The faux suede, chunky heel ankle boots. I bought these from Zulily at the beginning of the season for under $20. I’ll link a bunch of similar options for around the same price! I am totally obsessed with the wine red this season. I pretty much want everything in this color. I think the neutrals with the touch of red is perfect. It’s not too much but it’s enough to make your look pop.
