~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~
Still one of my favorite dresses.
Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket. I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim. I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip: If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.
What I’m Wearing:
Dress $14.99 from Ross
Distresses Denim Jacket $39.99 from American Eagle (also seen here)
Bangles/cuff $12.99 from Macy’s
Wedges from Charlotte Russe (also seen here)
“It’s way too matchy match” is a phrase I use so often that even my kids know what I mean! My pet peeve has little to do with color. To me style should look effortless and when the pieces you’re wearing are too matchy match it looks intentional. Take for example my favorite pattern stripes. I always have a striped tank, a striped scarf, or a striped sweater (like the one below) on hand whenever I feel something is a little too matchy match. My general rule of thumb is, if it’s going to be a matchy match kinda outfit I’d rather go the monochromatic way and use the color head to toe. Intentional? Heck yeah but it’s a minimalist style that so chic – it supposed to be intentional. Below I paired one of favorite striped sweaters, polka dot denim top and ankle zip skinnies.
