That’s right. I’m doing it. I’m biting the bullet and posting pictures of myself on this blog more often. I’ve even got a partner-in-crime to take photos of me at least once a week this time, so you know I’m serious. And yes, I do remember what happened the last time I tried to post photos myself on this blog, but I figure I’ve set the bar so low that anything I post now will be better than that, right?
In all seriousness, this is one of my go-to outfits for a night out on the town. I know. I wish the town I live in was more of a little black dress on a Friday night town too, but it’s not; and, sadly, even wearing this I’m usually overdressed.
One of my favorite elements of this outfit is the necklace. I actually won it in a Twitter contest about a year ago from an online clothing boutique called Threadsense, and while I can’t find anything quite it on the market right now (though I’m sure it’s out there) some chunky chains like this will work perfect. It goes with so many things gives the illusion that I have a long torso. I’ve had the jacket for years too, and it goes with pretty much everything. Express and Target have similar versions this season.
The boots are from Marshalls, but Steve Madden makes a pair that is almost identical. Or, if you’re wanting to show a little more leg, consider an ankle boot like the ones above or some type of bootie (these are on sale!).
What shoes would I not suggest wearing with this outfit? Flats or pumps of any kind. A motorcycle or bomber jacket screams for something a little less dainty.
