WHITE

  So, I started a new job today and decided to christen the occasion by wearing all white. Now, let me note the shocked and stunned reaction I received when I walked in for orientation. Remember, I live in the Washington DC metropolitan area, using the word aesthetically conservative would be more than an understatement. I believe that I made myself a social pariah just by my attire alone, but who gives a shit. As long as I am comfortable, I am happy. Its nothing worse then being somewhere and being uncomfortable in the clothes you are wearing. I am just fortunate enough to not have to work for the federal or state government. 

Jacket: MOD.I.FIED
Denim: MOD.I.FIED
Shirt: ZARA

  1. Your editing job on this is so sick, I love it. Also completely agree with your reaction to the people judging you with what you wear. Who gives a shit, and if you do why do you even bother getting dressed every day? Great post, really enjoyed it and am quite inspired!

  2. I am loving every second of that jacket. I think all white is stunning on anyone so meh.... like anything else in life it is all about perception.

  3. You were not kidding those Acne shoes were a fantastic deal. I never thought there would ever come a day Acne shoes would be 'affordable'.

  4. This look is amazing!
    Modern and uncluttered with a futuristic twist
    I would image the wearer to be confident, innovative.
    Unfortunately can’t wear all white as I will spill

  7. This looks really beautiful on you, and I like how you balance out the look with your lipstick color choice. The shoes also have a really nice aesthetic to them.

    Best,
