I am currently on Spring Break and it is glorious! No, I am not off to some exotic destination or roaming the streets of a foreign city. Quite the contrary, actually. With the exception of a trip to D.C. this past weekend for museums + shopping and another mini trip scheduled for this coming weekend, I am all about staying at home this week. Although I do have projects and assignments to get done, I’ve penciled in plenty of time for relaxing, catching up with magazines and, yup, blogging!
Today, I thought that I would introduce a (potential) new blog series in which I share snapshots of some of my favorite outfits. I realize that while I’m used to sharing my #ootd on Instagram (@a_wilmer), it’s not often that I post about my personal style in this corner of the internet. I’m not sure whether this series will turn into a once-a-week-kind-of-deal (I’m thinking probably not!) or just a bimonthly post to look forward to… But either way, here goes nothing!
field jacket (similar) | ruffle hem sweatshirt | tassel necklace | bow ring (sold out, but here’s another great KS option!) | black skinny jeans (similar)
Photographed above is one of my more casual outfits (read: I’m actually wearing pants, not a skirt or dress!). Oh-em-gee, I cannot tell you how obsessed I have become with my J.Crew Factory field jacket these past few months! I literally wear it all the time — with jeans, over a dress, paired with a skirt… you name it. Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind adding another field jacket to my collection. In all seriousness though, if you don’t have a field jacket, I highly recommend investing in one.
Just as the quote that I shared on Instagram reads: “Who says that sweatshirts have to be bor-ing?!” It’s hard to tell in the picture, but this sweatshirt that I snagged on sale at J.Crew is adorned with a pretty navy ruffle on the bottom. I may be biased, but it just so happens to look perfectly on point with my field jacket and skinny black jeans ;)
As far as my jewelry is concerned, I tend to gravitate toward pieces that I can wear and restyle for a variety of looks. Case in point: this tassel necklace that I recently got at Duo is undeniably simple, yet so sophisticated. I foresee endless outfit possibilities on the horizon.
Would you like to see more snapshots of my outfits here on the blog? Tell me in the comments below + share links to your latest #ootd posts, so that I can check them out as well!
