Trailblazer

Remember when I said I was dreaming up new #OOTDs when stuck in bed last week? This is one of them. I’ve been sitting on this blazer for a while, unsure quite how to style it. During my hours on bedrest, I decided to mentally go through my wardrobe and finally figure out the solution!

The answer deceptively simple. Since I work in an office with a casual-chic dress code, I knew I didn’t have to dress it up too much- in fact, I should probably focus on dressing it down. So, I paired it with a plain white tee, my trusty black jeans, and my signature Adidas. This look screams “woman on the go” while still being professional. I’m always trying to perfect the line between casual and presentable, and I think this fits that perfectly!

Can You Dig It?

This outfit was giving off major 70s vibes to me. Between the red and yellow striped shirt and the flare jeans, I definitely was feeling a little retro with this look. Separately, I don’t feel like either of the key pieces necessarily scream “seventies,” but together? I feel a little like Julie, the American Girl Doll.

Technically the shirt is meant to be more of a crop top, but I found it was just long enough to tuck into my most high-waisted pair of jeans. This was a work #OOTD, so I wasn’t about to risk wearing it as a crop top in the office!

Do you like to take inspiration from certain decades? Personally, I love the 70s and the 50s! And the 90s… Actually, what decade don’t I love from time-to-time?
