AJ Wears :: A Leather Vest

Did I forget to blog in June?

Oops. 

Honestly, it's been a whirlwind of stuff the past month. We sold our house, packed up everything we own into a 12x9 Pod, and embarked on homelessness for two weeks while we wait to close on our new place. I'm currently in the second week of homelessness, staying in a friend's basement and wearing the same outfit every day.

The outfit you see here is one I managed to salvage from a suitcase and throw together for dinner with friends that were in town from Dallas. The hair isn't so much washed as it was "watered", but I passed for a fairly normal person that night at Sushi Cafe considering that mere hours earlier I was wearing an outfit for the third consecutive day: Gap yoga pants and a "Puppies Make Me Happy" tank top.

We close on Friday. Just a few more days until I live out of boxes instead of a suitcase.

AJ Wears :: Floral + Leather Jacket

I'm still working through my wardrobe resolutions for 2017. Not that I'm making any solid goals, but I feel like I'm still working through a transition period in my style. I'm still working out what exactly is my style - I had a small personal crisis after watching America's Next Top Model. Each model was tasked with defining her style in two words, and I cannot for the life of me figure out what my two words are. Edgy femme? Modern Avant-garde? Leather...and floral stuff?

If it's leather and floral stuff, I am set, for here is the world's coolest jacket. This was an outfit that felt decidedly me, if not a little cooler. I'll have to keep working on the words.
