Remember when I went back to school shopping at the start of September but it wasn’t even cool enough to wear half the things I bought? Guess what? Now it’s cool enough out so I decided to style the H&M shirt from that post two ways. First dressy, with hot heels and a Charming Charlie clutch, then with red ballet flats for everyday wear.
As you can see, the H&M shirt is paired with girlfriend distressed jeans. I remember when I was growing up my dad would never allow us to buy jeans that were pre-ripped. “Why are you paying for rips?” He didn’t understand fashion. Since the ripped look came back into style, I’ve been a little obsessed with them. I’m an adult, I can buy my jeans pre-ripped if I want to and I do want to!
I must say I was slightly hesitant to wear them to work. My industry is in the entertainment/digital arena so I’m fortunate to be allowed to wear jeans. However, I wasn’t sure if I could get away with rocking some ripped ones. I am happy to say that I wore the dressy outfit to work and got a number of compliments on my fashionable outfit. Case closed — ripped jeans work if it’s a Devil Wears Prada inspired look. (After Andi gets help with her outfits.)
I threw on a faux leather coat I got through Le Tote. It fits like a sweater, is incredibly comfortable and pink! I think it lends a cute vibe to the dressy outfit.
Here’s the change to casual. Off came the heels and on went the flats. The outfit is rather subdued, color-wise, so I felt like a pop of red with the shoes would be fun. What do you guys think?
Thought I’d end with a close up of my favorite necklace my sister got me years ago. Oui. My nod to France. Because what fashionista doesn’t love Paris and everything French?
I’d love to hear from you guys on how you take an outfit from work to going out. Let me know below!
