If you guys buy one jacket for Spring, make it a bomber– preferably silk (because its lightweight and perfect for layering, and the shiny texture adds interest to any look), extra points if it has cool details like embroidery, a pattern, zips or in an unexpected color! Right now, I’m wearing them over dresses, with sneaks and booties, mostly because I’m kinda done with jeans/pants at this point (3 more weeks to go with this pregnancy!!!), but also because you guys know I love an ironic contrast between something girly and something tomboyish. Come cool nights in summer and into next fall, I’ll totally be sporting these with ripped jeans, leather leggings and over denim cutoffs in warmer weather. I have three right now– unfortunately they’re all sold out at the moment (bummer)– a blush pink silky one and classic black and white sporty version, both from Forever21, and a navy and gold embroidered one from H&M. I’ve linked lots of my fave options below in various price ranges– happy shopping!
If you guys buy one shoe for fall, make it the pointed toe loafer. By now, we all have multiple pairs of boots and booties in our closet, and heels galore– the freshest way to update your looks this fall is a pair of these guys. They will ground any look with a more masculine edge– for me, traditional flats feel too expected. Pointed toe loafers are literally my dream shoe for so many reasons– tomboyish appeal, a sense of irony, sharpness and edge, annddddd comfort! As a teacher, I’m always on the run (sometimes literally lol), so these are my fave way to stay on trend footwear wise, while giving my feet a break during the week from heels! Some of my fave ways to wear them:
With skinnies, cuffed or shortened to show off some ankle– this is vital…there needs to be a few inches of ankle if you wear pants or jeans with these guys…otherwise they appear more dad-ish than fashion-y.
With dresses, to offset the femininity.
With a mini skirt, leather or suede/denim button up, with a sweater or button up– kinda 70s collegiate vibes…
With overalls, duh.
