Subtitled striped top, Forever New boyfriend jeans, Nine West boots, Gorman beanie, Samantha Wills bracelets.
This is probably what you're more likely to catch me wearing on a daily basis. As much as I would love it to, going to work, uni or interning doesn't warrant me wearing the nicer items in my wardrobe. Practicality and comfort are key, especially if I'll be spending all day on my feet. Perhaps I've become a little too comfortable with my surroundings and the people in it and not being too self conscious about how I dress. After all you go to work to work, you go to uni to learn. Am I making sense? I think I'm trying to find a more eloquent way of explaining why I wear variations of tee shirt/ knit + jeans everyday. Kid you not I wear my black Ksubi coated jeans about 90% of the time (funny that they've never made an appearance here). I'm not saying that the outfits I've posted aren't what I would wear - I guess the blog is my outlet for being able to 'dress up' for the occasion, a place to express what I would wear if I could.
The boyfriend jeans and Newbury-esque boots combo have been on high rotation of late, a nod to my style icon Rachel Bilson. Pair that with a fail-safe striped tee, throw on a beanie for good measure (and head warming) and voila! Now you know the secret formula to my daily dressing. I wish I could tell you that my wardrobe doesn't purely consist of jeans, tee shirts, knits and Acne Pistols but then I'd be lying to myself. I'm all about simplicity and timelessness in my fashion choices. I hope you don't think this outfit is boring in comparison to the others before it because you'll be seeing a lot more of minimalistic Mel (made that one up myself)
