Off Duty

Isn't it funny how you can think "I wanna switch it up and wear something different today" and still end up wearing, essentially, jeans and a t-shirt? Trying to break from that comfortable go-to mode can be hard, but when you think about it...what a versatile look, no?
I find myself making a uniform of this look on occasion, and this time saw it fit to pair with a navy top coat I recently thrifted. The coat is a little oversized, which is actually what I love about it. I love the drama added to a rather simple look by putting on a sharply detailed, masculine piece like this coat.

While we all love snakeskin and the moment its been having for the past few years, I love that I'm starting to see crocodile texture having the moment that it's starting to right now. I've developed the bad habit lately of falling in love with every croc handbag or pair of shoes I see though, like these faux croc bags from Friday by JW Pei for example. I also just got these red faux croc slides in from Express and have already gotten so much wear out of them. I was a bit hesitant to choose this color, as it changes them from standard to a rather statement piece, but you learn you can do that when you start with jeans and a tee.
