I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a fan of typical professional dress attire. I find my own ways to look business casual or the dreaded business professional if necessary, but with my own twist.
Style #1 With a Dress
I’ve amassed a decent collection of bomber jackets to swap in place of a blazer or my trusty leather or suede jackets. I think the print and fabric lends itself to a little more sophistication and with heels, this could be a perfect look for me at a press conference. But on this occasion, downtown Grand Rapids didn’t require heels so platform oxfords felt a little more casual and sporty. I’ll be re-wearing this look to Retail Therapy this Saturday, Dec. 2 for the Suki + Solaine Trunk Show too, stop by and say hi (and snag some sales!)
Style #2 Print Mixing & Denim
Bombers and a good pair of mom jeans always make the cut in my closet–and with a loose, a-line striped top. I made it more space-agey with the white boots and wore this for Thanksgiving. I like how the top peeks out below the jacket and that its shape allowed me to overeat, unbutton my pants and have it all go unnoticed at the dinner table.
