This look was a 'wild' one, lol. (Corny, I know). I don't know what I was thinking walking around Chicago in the middle of winter, 20 degree weather to be exact, in a skirt and light jacket but the pairing was so good I couldn't resist... the things we do for fashion. Side note- I have been getting SO many inquires about this jacket. This jacket was my insanely cool Mom's from the 90's. Vintage BEBE to be exact. Once it started getting cold in LA I immediately pulled it out and basically haven't taken it off since. You will continue to see me wearing it in 2018.
I was so excited to shoot this outfit featuring CLUSE in Downtown, CHI. CLUSE has a really rad story that totally resinates with me;
"Our story is about people who find beauty in simplicity. Simple is not about being plain. It is about being grounded, sophisticated and true to oneself. Away from distractions and focused on the things that are truly important in life. Timepieces that aspire to be part of people who are conscious about their style. A CLUSE watch brings the best out of your look and completes your outfit."
I consciously & intentionally paired this outfit around that concept. Styling doesn't always have to be that thought out. I have had some of my best looks by just aimlessly throwing pieces together. But, when you put together pieces that have meaning, in a place that makes you feel more like yourself, its electrifying and empowering. My CLUSE watch completed my outfit and this outfit, completed me. This outfit gave me the confidence I needed to walk around Chicago, with people bundled up head to toe in their Goose Jackets, and not give AF.
Shoutout to my sister, Alexa for getting these pictures for me. She's not really into the whole photo taking thing (espcially in the dead of winter), but her support on this little project literally meant the world to me :)
