I absolutely adore today’s cool outfit combo…so it’s hard to imagine that there was a time (not really all that long ago!) when I wouldn’t have dreamed of putting together an ensemble like this!!
And it’s not the red-and-black plaid skinnies that I’d have doubted back then, either; these punk-inspired jeans have been a part of my closet for almost as long as I’ve been blogging, which is over three years now!! Nope – the pieces that I once swore would never be a part of my wardrobe lexicon are a button-front shirt and a blazer…especially worn together!!
I’m still a confirmed “sweater girl” – I don’t think that will ever change! – but my regular visitors know very well by now that I’m a huge advocate of experimenting when it comes to personal style!! So with time and practice, I’ve learned to love a collared shirt and a suit-style jacket almost as much as my go-to jerseys and knits.
Of course it helps when the button-down in question is constructed of the softest chambray, and the blazer is nearly as stretchy and non-constricting as the comfiest sweater. But when it comes to my footwear choice for such a tomboyish look?? I’m sticking with heels, dear readers…Converse simply can’t compete with a pair of edgy lace-up booties like these, don’t you agree?? 😉
