AJ Wears :: A Blue Suit

I've been obsessed with The Bold Type since Hulu recommended it to me a few months ago. If you haven't picked up this show yet, it's like The Devil Wears Prada: The TV show. The fashion is awesome, the storylines are interesting, and the characters are lovable. Yes, even Jan from The Office - she's actually one of the coolest people on the whole show, playing Jaqueline, the editor-in-chief of the magazine where they all work. She's what Miranda Priestly would have been if she'd been allowed to show feelings (or have half a heart).

I'm feeling very Bold Type today. I saw a video of a girl in a blue suit recently and immediately thought, "Oh hey, I need a bright suit." I actually picked this one up from JustFab of all places (it comes in pink too!) and immediately felt like a Jaqueline-meets-HRC vibe. I mean, I only went to work and Happy Hour, but I'm ready to run whatever business you may need me to. Lemme know.

Side note: I also have been VERY inspired by The Bold Type to up my wardrobe game going into fall. I'm talking colors, I'm talking patterns, I'm talking weird puffy sleeves. I filled a cart full of Jane, Kat, and Sutton inspired tops so get ready for some realllllll weirdness up on the blog.

AJ Wears :: A Comfy Sheath

Life is too short to wear uncomfortable clothes. In my old age, I have started slowly chucking pieces that pull weird, sit wrong, dig in uncomfortably, or that I fuss too much with. In fact, I decided I loved being comfortable SO much that I placed a giant Old Navy order last month (surely I wouldn't keep all $200 worth, right? Lol wrong) in an effort to revolutionize my wardrobe into the worlds most comfortable closet.

Enter: This dress. It's a nice thick jersey so you don't feel exposed, but it's still stretchy enough that it doesn't wrinkle easily and moves well. I love this thing so much, I want it in black too.

AJ Wears :: A Chunky Sweater

This has been the year of the chunky sweater! On cold days this winter, I basically lived in an oversized sweater and legging jeans. I was thrilled to wear this one, which I snagged from Trunk Club, one more time this weekend after a warmer than average February. It's soft. It's textured. It's exactly the sort of thing you'd wear to have a beer on a Sunday afternoon (which is exactly what I did).
