Every girl has that desire to show their uniqueness through their look. The misconception is that it’s only acceptable to do so if you’re a Kylie Jenner it-girl. Girls assume it requires expensive taste, a platform, and a lot of effort. Not true. All it takes a little confidence, creativity, and your clothes.
It takes confidence to step outside of the standard. It’s okay to not dress exactly like every single one of your friends. It’s okay to not follow ugly trends because they are just that… trends. It takes a little creativity to find outfits that suit you and your personality. It doesn’t require a wardrobe makeover, just a new perspective.
This outfit I’m wearing is a great example of my personal style. Minimalism, a little trendy, and a touch of classic. The jeans are J. Crew boot-cut jeans that I cut, cropped, and frayed. I took something out and made it in, unique, and mine. The top is a J. Crew white button-down that I’ve had for years, but will never get sick of. I traded out my Topshop sandals and my Adidas sneakers for a touch of trend. My sunglasses are my staple for this spring and summer!
I hope this outfit inspires you to find your inner unique style!

Funny story about the drink I’m holding in these photos:
I was walking around downtown Kansas City, and I ordered that new drink at Starbucks, the Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, it just rolls off the tongue. So the barista accidentally makes a hot chocolate in my cup, and the mocha in some little kid’s cup. I get about half way through the hot chocolate before I realize this isn’t coffee. I feel really sorry for the Mom of the kid drinking coffee right now!
Not that funny, but it isn’t very chic that I’m drinking hot chocolate in these pics…
I love this denim jacket that I just got from Gap’s Re-Issue Collection. The Icon 1969 Denim Jacket is so versatile, and the saddle blue wash is perfect for pairing with a light wash on bottom. I’m just wearing a simple white tee from Nordstrom, but the highlight of this look is the cute silk neck tie from Madewell. This Silk Bandana absolutely makes this look. Any light wash jeans would work with this outfit, but I’m wearing my boyfriends from H&M. As always in cold weather, my favorite J. Crew boots (these are in a different print).
Check out the look below, and let me know what you think!
Feeling like a secret agent in this look, minus the blending in to the crowd.
You might recognize the pieces of this outfit from Not Your Average Valentine, Better Than a Dress, and Winter in Chicago, but trust me… this is the best combination yet. Effortlessly chic, comfortably black, and hot enough to make me feel like a knock-out, I wish everyone could have the chance to walk down the street in this look. Head-to-toe ASOS (minus the J. Crew boots) makes it totally affordable! Shop the top, pants, and boots.
