American aesthetic

This is actually one of my favorite outfits of the whole 30 for far! I love the way that boxy, menswear-inspired silhouettes look on a feminine figure, and I tried to contrast that with the pony tail and big earrings. I feel like the wide-leg pants with the blazer and crew neck sweater epitomizes looking sharp but leisurely—the traditional American aesthetic achieved by designers like Ralph Lauren, Derek Lam, and Tory Burch. This is also just a fancy way of saying that I can wear jeans to work if I want to.

As much as I've been bitten the skinnies bug lately, my first love is flared pants like yours!

I love it and I agree, this is my fave of your mix too!
