My sartorial mood constantly fluctuates between casual chic and super dressy. Right now, I’m feeling pretty casual but of course I have to add a few dressy elements.
During my last visit to the Salvation Army I wandered over to the men’s section and found a great chambray shirt. Though chambray was a huge trend for fall, it remains timeless and is a great addition to any wardrobe. I loved the pale blue color and large fit.
With the cool autumn weather in NYC, I needed a jacket but I wanted something that was a bit fitted to balance out the oversized shirt. I’ve had this denim jacket for years and it was one of the first thrifted pieces I ever purchased. With constant wear and washing, it’s taken on a distressed, vintage-y look, which I love.
With the addition of some leggings and boots, my outfit was complete.
