After nearly two weeks off from posting on LM, I’m back! It seems much longer and yet it doesn’t feel like my last post was all that long ago at all. I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s and is ready for 2015. I think I’m ready. When I was a student, I usually had a pretty good idea of what my year ahead would look like – due dates, projects, whereabouts, etc. Since graduation, however, such certainty has disappeared. I’m learning to have faith in the certain unknown, but I still have a long way to go. The certainty that exists, however, is my style. I was changing fashions all the time when I was younger, now it’s much more constant. Items like this Bod & Christensen Jacket will be on major repeat. It’s already becoming a defining item of my style.
Bod & Christensen Jacket Outfit
These Vince skinny jeans were a sale find on a trip to Portland nearly a year ago. They too quickly became a classic in my closet. I don’t wear them all the time, but they have a luxurious softness that reminds me why I love denim so much. And the color will forever look chic. Since my tan leather jacket and olive green pants are great muted neutrals, I’m loving the combination with the soft pink of this sweater.
This tan leather jacket continues to pair perfectly with every outfit. It’s the perfect outer layer for most days in LA. I have a soft spot for pairing it with my tote. The colors pair so perfectly together and both were gifts when I earned my PhD, so they hold a lot of meaning for me!
