WILDWOOD {earthy layers & velveteen leopard}

I hope everyone had a wonderful Tuesday!  
So today, November 20th, marks the day of my first ever fashion blog post!
Yippee!

<<DISCLAIMER>>
I'm not the greatest at filming or photographing my looks yet, but I hope it translates well.
Let me know what you guys think!

It's a bit chilly today, around 50 degrees here in Illinois, but the sunshine is bursting with warmth.  Getting dressed this morning was really easy, because I had been waiting for a crisp, autumn day like today to cozy into this outfit.  I wanted my first fashion post to be meaningful to me, so I appropriately named this look, Wildwood.  Why wildwood you ask?  Well keep on reading :)


Forever 21 - olive knit dress 
Silver Spider - brown, ruffle scarf &  Target - olive, cross body bag 
The Limited - amber, octagonal earring studs
Forever 21 - large cable chain stretch bracelet & Michael Kors - gold sportswatch 
MeMoi - leopard valore leggings & Gianni Bini - brown riding boots
wool cloche (from Von Maur, no tag)
Wildwood, by definition, means 'a wood growing in the wild or natural state; forest'.  I'd like to think of myself as a woman forever growing in her organic, original, and very true state.  Being the 'real you' can be challenging sometimes, but it's worth it. 

I'm not trying to get all philosophical on you guys here, but I believe you have to know who you are in order to derive genuine thoughts and ideas about how you perceive the world and in turn, how you want the world to perceive you.

I always strive to be that true Jenn.  I never want to be the girl that pretends to be something that I'm not, and I want my style in these fashion posts to reflect that.  Though I enjoy playing around with trends, I would say I focus more on timeless fashion.  Whatever the look of the day may be, I always hope my 'classic with a twist' styling feels eternal.  

For those of you who are wondering, I maintain that 'twist' element in my style by thrifting and shopping for unique pieces.  I really enjoy searching for those one-of-a-kind items to incorporate into my, otherwise, basic style.

I hope you guys enjoy these new series of fashion posts and that it inspires you to discover your personal style!

stay fab,
