Notice anything different about these photos? I ask because someone other than my on-call photographer took them. When said photographer (aka my boyfriend) informed me that he would be unable to take my outfit photos for a few days, I thought I’d end up skipping them altogether. As it turns out, I just so happen to work in an office full of people who not only understand the importance of outfit photos but are also willing to lend a helping hand without making me feel completely ridiculous when I ask “Will you take pictures of what I’m wearing as I stand in the middle of the street?” I’m a lucky girl.
This outfit, like so many others, started with the shoes. It’s no secret that I love menswear inspired shoes, but these also have a touch of that preppy east coast vibe that will always hold a special place in my heart (and closet). I adore them. Inspired by my new shoes, I went for boyish, preppy layers – boyfriend jeans, a button down, and a vest. Gold accessories and a navy patent bag finished off a look that would definitely make my seventh grade self proud.
