As you read in my previous post, NYFW left me very inspired and empowered to kick some butt fashion wise. Although I always emphasize inhale fashion, exhale style- fashion is more than a passion for me. It is what I want to do career wise. Whether photography, social media marketing, or directing photoshoots, I live for this art. Currently I work in social media and honestly I am in love with what I do and the company I work for but at the end of the day we all know what truly has my heart.
When I say that fashion is more than a passion, I don’t want to focus solely on a career. Everything that I do comes back to style and fashion. Alot of the movies or TV shows I watch are geared towards the clothes and how they are worn to showcase different personalities. I started watching the show, The Bold Type because the trailer had some amazing outfits and I needed to know more. One of my fave movies, The Thomas Crown Affair (original and remake) feature some of the most amazing classic pieces.
Actually as I write this, I realize that my next post may be about my favorite styled movies or shows.
But speaking of classic pieces and fashion.
The last few months I have been wearing and styling a lot of pieces by J. Jill. As I get older, I gravitate towards items that I can build a wardrobe with instead of just fun and/or trendy pieces and J. Jill makes that task very easy.
For Day 2 of NYFW, I chose to go classic with a touch of trendy. I paired my J. Jill plaid stretch pants with a maxi blazer that I purchased from The Working Beauty’s yard sale. This thrifted find can be worn as a blazer type dress or as I wore it, a coat and I love it. But it did not work for ever occasion of day 2 so I switched out a denim jacket for a few looks when I wanted to give off a different vibe.
I do believe that I can show you better than I can tell you so please take a moment and peruse these posts to see how I styled other J. Jill pieces. They are my go-to for fall classic pieces and this denim shirt dress that they just debuted on the website is such an easy and perfect layering piece.
On another note…….. I recently hit 15,000 followers on Instagram and I am OH SO GEEKED!!! That means that over 15k of you actually want to see what I post on that social platform and I am so incredibly excited and humbled! THANK YOU!!!!
