WHAT I'M WEARING // YASSO Faux Leather Jacket // H&M Dress //MIA Boots // CORNELIA GUEST Bag // JUSTFAB Sunglasses So it's warm enough nowadays for dresses but not for sandals just yet. I couldn't wait to wear this new graphic, black and white tie dye dress I recently picked up at H&M so I threw on some moto style boots and I was ready to go. I have a feeling this outfit will be a uniform for me the next coming weekends. I LOVE the entire look. I really like wearing maxi dresses on weekends. They're super comfortable and all you have to do is throw it on over your head and you are dressed and presentable for the day with minimal effort. Notice a trend here on Brooklyn Bliss? I don't like having to think or put a lot of effort into much of anything. Everything's got to be easy. That and comfortable. I might seem pretty put together but truth is I'm just on auto-pilot and have found systems over the years that work well for me. In all honesty I'm probably one of the laziest people on the planet. Truth. Now that it's spring, what's been your weekend uniform?
What I'm Wearing / Old Navy Tee (similar) / Lasso Faux Leather Jacket (similar) / Mavi Jeans / JustFab Keira Moto Boots (c/o) / Gap Beanie (thrifted) Okay, so go ahead and lock me up. This is seriously pretty much the same outfit I wore last weekend, aside for a few adjustments to accommodate the warmer weather and activities I'd be doing that day. Jim and I decided to do a last-minute Costco run which resulted in me grabbing the first things I saw in my closet and throwing them on. Flat shoes, check. Comfy t-shirt, check. Beanie (my recent obsession), check. Sure, I look like I belong in jail but the outfit did the job. What item in your closet do you currently have on repeat that should have you thrown in fashion jail?
What I'm Wearing / Levi's Jacket (via Crossroads Trading Co) / Alloy Sweater / Tightsplease Leggings (c/o) / JustFab Keira Moto Boots (c/o) / Cornelia Guest Handbag All I've been wearing lately is leggings and boots. It seems I get lazier and lazier as I get deeper into my 30's. This morning when I was getting ready for work (yes, I'm even wearing them to work, super lazy) I near had a panic attack when I saw I was down to my last clean pair of leggings for the week. Tightsplease had contacted me not too long ago and generously offered me my pick of an item from their store to check out. Didn't take long at all for me to find these leopard paneled leggings on their website and before I knew it they we're here for me to try on. Perfect choice for me considering they're leggings plus leopard, which equals awesome. Another new acquisition I've been wearing non-stop are these moto boots from JustFab. I've been wearing heels so often the flat boots are a welcome break. I met the JustFab team at the LuckyFABB event this past September and I was stoked all their products are coincidentally vegan. Not only are they vegan, they're chic and inexpensive too. Since getting these boots they gifted me with I've bought another pair of knee-high wedge boots and a hot leopard and yellow clutch I can't wait to use. Those boots go perfect with leggings as well, which means no one will see me in normal clothing while in public for quite some time. What are some of your new favorite "lazy day" wear acquisitions?
It was made a brand I've never heard of called Infinity. I couldn't even find this brand online to link their look book photo. It looks very similar to the Boss jacket at the top of this post. The jacket looked amazing on him. It fit perfectly, and the gray was a unique color that really suited him. The only issue with it was it was leather. When he asked me what I thought of it, I told him the truth. It looked amazing on him but I wasn't happy it was leather. I really didn't want to get all preachy on him, he did only recently go vegetarian. I offered to find him a vegan version of the jacket, but if he didn't want that and really loved the Infinity jacket, told him to get it and left it at that. He loved the Infinity jacket so much he initially made the decision to get it, but later prior to heading to the cash register changed his mind and put it back. He said he felt guilty. All in all, I was really happy he made the decision on his own. So Jim, this special vegan versions post is for you! I found you a gray leather jacket that looks almost exactly the same as the one you loved. So now you can look all sexy and badass for all us ladies without any guilt, knowing your jacket is a compassionate choice.
