Outfit details at the bottom.
It’s that time of the semester when appearances start to slip due to exams and finals approaching and the weather getting worse. But last week I decided to throw off the joggers and try once again in order to put some pep in my step. This is one of my go-to looks for when I want to look nice without getting too formal.
The shirt is one of my favorite’s from Brooks Brothers that I found on sale in Chicago. It matches the J. Crew chinos well, and the J. Crew sweater breaks up the constant navy nicely. Camel and navy are great to pair together so I really like the way it all comes together. My Clark’s shoes are something I wear almost daily that look good with most outfits like this.
The watch was a gift and what I wear when I’m not just wearing sweats and my Apple watch. The colors match well with anything so it’s the perfect staple watch to have without breaking the bank.
Altogether it’s the perfect look for days when I want to look put together for class without putting on tie. The quality of the clothes makes me feel better about my day and can brighten any bad weather!
