This might be one of my favorite looks to date. And I'm not exactly sure why... (other than the obvious it's #cute).
SHOP MY LOOK HERE:
J. Crew: Fleece Excursion Vest / Ralph Lauren: Blue Oxford (similar here) / J. Crew: Mini Skirt (old, similar here and here) / LL Bean: 8" Bean Boots / Louis Vuitton: Pochette Metis / Ray-Ban: Wayfarer Sunglasses / Nordstrom: Pearl Earrings
But a lot of my outfits are cute, so what makes this one strike such a chord with me? I told Andrew that it made me feel very college. Meaning this was how I dressed back then. For those who don't know, I went to U. of Kentucky, so being preppy and well-dressed was par for the course. So fall gamedays were vests, bean boots and a button down (pants or skirts were up to you).
I think what really brings me back is the return of my wayfarer sunglasses. Those were MY JAM in college. This was before all the mirrored stuff and before even aviators were cool. Wayfarers were where it was at. I wore them ALL the time and maybe shuffled through 4-5 pairs over two years (college gamedays are rough on the fragile).
With all the new and cool sunglasses out there, my wayfarers soon fell to the bottom of my basket (I have a literal basket with sunglasses in them) and I totally forgot about them. I had two pairs of tortoise; the 55mm and the 52mm (these are the 52mm) and I just simply tossed them aside.
Well, they're back and ready for action. I'm going to bring these back into the rotation because I honestly forgot how much I love them. And for the plain and simple fact that they make me reminisce on old SEC football days. #blessup
As for the rest of the outfit outside my love affair with my sunglasses, I'm breaking out the Bean Boots and you can get ALL you need to know about them HERE in yesterday's post.
Finally, the boots are out with my favorite mini skirt. I bought this from J. Crew a couple years ago and I really just should have bought more colors. I freaking love this skirt and it is perfect for fall. Pairing two things that ideally don't normally go together (like a shirt and bean boots) make it work that much more.
And did I mention this vest? It's similar to the shape of the excursion vests from J. Crew and the fur vests from two years ago. The perfect union and something that will be a must have for my fall attire. Ya dig?
