I realized I haven’t blogged for almost a year now. It’s not because I ran out of fashion inspiration, out of chic OOTDs or out of passion for blogging, but the sad reality is that my first year of work as a real adult and #adulting has left me barely any time to continue one of my passions. I’ve found that instead of posting fashion tips and essays on how I think through an outfit, I’ve opted for the easy route through a quick 10 second snap via Snapchat. Sometimes I wonder if the blogging community will one day become obsolete and all bloggers will just be social media influencers on Instagram, Snapchat and Youtube. Like really who has time to read. I would rather spend my limited 24 hours a day reading up on self-improvement books everyone keeps telling me I should read. I actually applaud you if you’re taking the time to read this now…
Away from pessimistic thoughts and back to the world of #style… This fall season one of the “it” items is SUEDE. Suede boots, jackets, dresses, shirts, hats, bags, you name it. The “it” colour of the season is less so burgundy and more brown. This jacket I found at Zara is the perfect combination of “it” colour and “it” fabric, it’s also in my favourite jacket style, moto jackets. The jacket is quite warm and versatile, so far I’ve paired it like this OOTD with a white tee and black shorts, with a black tank and jeans, with a grey tee and white jeans. Pretty much any top and bottom combination with white, grey, black, denim will work perfectly. This jacket is a nice addition to your closet from all those black and brown leather jackets every person on the street has.
Another “it” item for the season is the choker. I remember back in the 90s, plastic chokers were all the rage, but now I guess fashion has upgraded to chokers of all styles from leather, plastic, bejewelled and all arrays of colours. Me being me I wanted a chocker that was unique and didn’t look like all those other chokers you could find at Forever 21. Thank goodness for my favourite store Zara, they had a red leather choker with some jewels so it doesn’t look like a boring leather strap cutting your neck. I liked how for the chocker style I could style pair some of my other dainty necklaces to give it some length and so the choker doesn’t seem to be cutting the length of your neck.
