I’m all about looks that are “normal” or effortlessly stylish, if you will, but I looooove a good kick! You know, like rocking a blazer and a pair of booties is pretty normal, but when I get my hands on the two, it gets trendsetting and fiery!
The time I wore my red vintage military blazer and paired with one of my most coveted pair of shoes, the “Caiman Boots” from IAmJenniferLe.com, is a great example of this!
Yea it’s a blazer and booties alright, but the tailored cut of the jacket along with the button and collar details, paired with boots that are cut-out in the back (some call this style shoe a mule or clog), this look is anything but normal and is indeed all the way fly!
The jeans and premium white tee give the jacket and boots a good balance but the jeans also adds some edge because of it’s hyper light blue wash and distressed style. The fact that the jeans are a stretchy, skinny fit also work to define a shapely yet slick look amongst all the layers.
To accessorize, I tried something new by rocking a bindi on my forehead. It’s something subtle yet endearing and adds a lot of sass!
This look is great for a casual date with a guy or even your girlfriends, casual Friday at work or if your job attire is always casual but you want to add some spice, bible study, a chill night out on the town or for any special occasion that calls for a dressy casual dress code.
