I’ve been thinking about this particular look for weeks! I’ve just been dying to post it, but I’ve been trying to wait for it to actually be Fall before I posted it. That unfortunately has not happened, so I’m just gonna go head and post it now because I love this coat and it's my favorite thing, lol. I actually have a lot of content, but I have schedule that I stick to, to keep me consistent before I start posting more frequently.
I’ve really been growing into my style as of late and have been experimenting with statement pieces. This checkered trench was one of them and *whispers loudly* I LOVE IT. It is literally all the things and I don’t know how to act when I’m wearing it. I’ve been finding pieces that seem kinda random to stretch myself creatively and see how well I can style them. So far so good, thank goodness.
I literally thought up and put together this look along with 2 others one Friday night, texted my homie, and had them shot by Sunday afternoon. I was planning on washing my hair and the only way these looks would’ve worked is if my hair was still pressed, so I had to snatch things together immediately for my vision to make sense. Shoutout to him for coming through and bringing these looks to life on such short notice.
I honestly didn’t realize how much I enjoyed Fall until I stopped being a broke student and finally had the money to get dressed for it. For me (now), it literally just means I have more of an opportunity to showcase 65% of my wardrobe in one outfit and show up and show out in the name of the slay. And if it’s two things I show up in the name of (besides God), it’s in the name of the ancestors and the name of the slay.
Hope wherever you are you’re getting a chance to actually experience Fall, unlike me… *squints & looks off into the distance* I want to believe it’s on the horizon, but the forecast for next week says 88 degrees, so I truly don’t know, lol.
Hope this inspired you, until next time :)
