When I was in college I had a go-to outfit on really stressful days. Whenever I had a huge exam, or an important class assignment due, I turned to an outfit that made me feel like I could conquer the world: a badass leather jacket and boots. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for super-girly pieces (like this tutu), but don’t IMO nothing can beat this power combo.
Ahhhhh, yes. As you strut to that biology class in your black pebbled leather adorned with gold angled zipper pockets, only you will know if you’re about to ace that exam or if you’re about to hop on a motorcycle. I’m warning you! A leather jacket will make you feel like you can conquer and do anything! Just make sure you actually study your Russian vocabulary, write the paper, and prepare the presentation; your jacket will take care of the rest.
Remember, the work you do in private will take you where you need to go, but your clothes will announce your arrival.
Earlier this week I wrote a little segment for Ellie of The Darling Design Co. She’s a fabulous graphic designer based in rural Australia. Have you ever wondered exactly what full-time bloggers do all day? I answered that and more–you can read the article here (including why I’m blogging about fashion after working my tail off for a Political Science degree).
I hope you guys have a great Monday!!
