Break the Rules

1310again874

This past Thursday was the first day of Autumn, which means the temperature is (supposed to be) dropping! FINALLY. And although it is premature, considering the temperature is still nearing the 90s, I wore pants for my #ootd today.

I know it’s so untraditional of me to wear white pants after Labor Day, but hey, here I am breaking the rules in my white H&M jeans.

And velvet in warm weather? I know…what the heck! But I was inspired by Victoria Beckham incorporating velvet into Spring and Summer outfits (Watch her NYFW SS17 show bc it’s incredible), and if Posh Spice herself says it works, it works. So here’s my velvet shirt from Anthropologie.

Also on top is my patched denim jacket, which is inspired by Libertine and all the many celebrities who have followed suit, including Gigi Hadid (I have the biggest girl crushes on Gigi and Bella). I actually got this from TJ Maxx for 20 freaking dollars. What a steal for something that may or may not go out of style in a few seasons!

My shoes are Dolce Vita. Take this as an introduction and a fair warning that you will be seeing these shoes very often in this upcoming season’s #ootds.

Accessorized with a Marc by Marc Jacobs Q Percy crossbody purse.

White pants aren’t allowed to be worn past Labor Day, and velvet is for cold weather. But, to put it simply, it’s okay to break the “rules” sometimes. Be yourself. You do you. That’s what style’s all about.
