I don’t think I have layered outfits better than I did while I was in New York.
There was something about actually putting the time and effort into my outfits there, that I never quite do here in SoCal. Here in SoCal, I can basically go the whole day in some athleisure wear. Sweats, baseball cap, and jacket – call it a day.
Could it be the more laid back atmosphere? Or, could it be the dumbed down weather? I don’t know. I have always liked putting effort into the outfits I choose to wear when I go out, but I guess I definitely pulled off a lot while in New York. From different textures to mixing different colors. It was all very interesting to see that side of me and I got quite a few compliments out of it.
Here’s one of my favorite outfits from my New York trip. Something really casual. And here’s the break down:
Jeans are Forever21 boyfriend jeans from 2-3 years ago
Mustard short turtleneck is from H&M ’14-’15 fall/winter season.
Plaid button up is from the $2 Clothing Store in WeHo.
Levis denim jacket is from Awoke Vintage in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Boots are from Nordstrom Rack.
Wool socks are from WalMart.
