Something that isn't too tailored that it screams MADE FOR WOMEN but not so bulky and structured that it makes me look like a linebacker. Basically, something that is just tomboy-versatile enough and looks good a little wrinkled.
Hi, Kristy! One of my absolute favorite trends is the utility jacket. Their versatility and simplicity make them the perfect accent to any outfit. But you definitely do not need to be spending $900 on one! Here are some of my favorites!
1. Willow & Clay Short Sleeve Utility Jacket ($128)
2. Stars and Utility Jacket ($39)
3. ASOS Four Pocket Utility Jacket ($71)
4. Apt. 9 Solid Roll-Tab Utility Jacket ($49)
5. Forever 21 Oversized Studded Jacket ($48)

Eman here: If I could live in pajamas I would. But I can't, and I absolutely HATE when people go out in public in their pajamas! (Maybe I'm envious but it's also just ugly.) My first job in retail put me directly in my dream position but reality called for a bigger paycheck. I am convinced I have a sixth sense for trends, I absolutely love fashion and I am now an expert in all things bridal due to planning my own DIY wedding. I would love to help you find clothes, shoes, accessories and wedding stuff!
