Why: I woke up this morning with a feeling like it was the first day of school. Maybe it was the long Holiday weekend or just this new attitude I’m working on. Whatever it is, I feel pretty great today!
Outfit wise, I’m taking denim on denim to an entirely new level. I knew I wanted to wear black jeans with cognac boots (and my back pack!*) with my polka dot pop over, but I played around a lot with the top layers. I tried my varsity sweater and that camel blazer I made last year, a Filson vest and the top denim jacket alone. Finally, I decided to layer my DIY’d denim vest in the middle. And not to get all bro on you, but three popped collars are better than one if you ask me!
*You might remember a similar back pack that was on my site last fall. I bought the original bag while on vacation to Jackson Hole and I loved it SO MUCH. Unfortunately, on a trip to visit my parents, someone smashed my mom’s car window and yanked the bag and all it’s contents (laptop, phone, etc). While all of that other stuff was easily replaced, it took me a long time to track down a replacement backpack. But! But! I’ve finally found it!
