Todays WTWW is inspired by my best friend Jessica, who has just gone back to school. Sadly for me, it means her social calendar is far less open for girl talk, wine dates and gossip, but I’m proud of her – she’s worked like a maniac to get where she is!
Jess and I are the total stereotype when it comes to friends. If life were a romantic comedy – she would play the classy leading lady and I would be the kooky but charming best friend. While my wardrobe is filled with loud, patterned, often vintage statement pieces, hers is filled with neutral tones, streamlined designs, classic pieces. If we go out for ladies night, she’ll wear a little black dress, simple necklace and a red clutch, and I’ll be wearing a white top, black skirt, sequin suspenders and about 8 pieces of jewellery, including at least one ring the size of my fist (true story). She’s Calvin Klein, I’m Emilio Pucci…
I have always envied her effortless style so today I thought I’d put together a little FC outfit just for her!
A simple long-sleeved jersey top – perfect for fall with a flattering cowl neckline in navy (one of Jess’s staple wardrobe colours). Mandala Designs (available in our online store!)
Neutral skinny jeans – our beloved Yoga Jeans in this fantastic sand colour, are a versatile option that’s a nice change from basic blue.
ONE long and simple necklace – this message-in-a-bottle long necklace by Curious Oddities is the perfect piece to dress up a simple outfit without going over the top.
A carry-all tote – I love this Alice in Wonderland tote by Aether Gallery – great for carrying school books!
Statement shoes – Jess has a bit of a shoe addiction (what girl doesn’t?) so I made sure to add a super fun pair of Miz Mooz ankle boots for a pop of colour!
There you have it – classic, simple, comfortable – a great outfit for a day of studying at the library or your favourite coffee shop!
