Okay, this weather has been seriously throwing my blog photoshoot schedule way off. Last weekend it snowed, yeah, snowed! I know, #crazy #Imoverit #movingon. Now that I got that social-media banter out I can move on this latest outfit post. This is pretty much my go-to type of outfit. Skinny jeans, a flattering tee shirt, a cool little jacket, and some of my typical accessories  — vintage mini-statement necklaces, a vintage clutch that I got years ago for like $4 (it may have been less, I can’t remember), some understated shades and heels … and I’m out the door.

I’d rock this style for a creative meeting (in my work pretty much every meeting is creative), meeting up with a styling client, or just out for drinks and food with friends. It’s kind of casual, a little dressed up (thanks to the jacket + accessories), and looks like I’m not trying too hard… the entire vibe I’m always going for.  Keep scrolling for pics and style tips.

{ Style Tips }

1. Find a look you like and wear it again and again. I love switching it up (evidence: all the previous outfit posts), but certain combos are worth wearing on the regular. A look you know you love adds confidence to the day. True story: if I really hated my outfit I used to fake sick to go home from school. I can’t do that as an adult so I gotta be sure that I like my outfit before I leave and this is one combo I often turn to.

2. Add a jacket with a draped front to your wardrobe essentials. The shape on my topper is an outfit power player. It’s crazy flattering on the figure, making you look thinner + taller, all while keeping ya warm and adding some midsection coverage too.

3. Opt for vintage accents to make your outfit extra unique. This bag and the necklaces are items that I wear a ton and they always seem to snag the compliments. They were also crazy cheap (bought the necklaces at an estate sale and the bag was from a thrift shop) and are crazy special to me. I love how they infuse a ladylike energy to any outfit.

Speaking of vintage, while trekking around Manayunk to snag these pics we also stumbled into a super-cool little vintage store with the loveliest of things called Millay. The owner let us browse and snap some pics. I’ll be blogging those in a separate post and sharing some of my favorites from the shop. And guess what, they have even more amazing vintage styles online. Stay tuned for more on Millay Vintage!
