RECAP:

  • Wear to work is priority (vegan focus)

  • 6 words to describe how I see your style: SIMPLE, CHIC, EFFORTLESS, STREAMLINED, SMART, PULLED TOGETHER 

  • Mood board to the right

  • Looks below

 

THE LOOKS:

LOOK 1 NOTES & LINKS:

  • I went above budget on a couple of things, namely the blazer. I figured you probably had one in your closet already so use this as inspiration mainly. 
  • The overall look is a basic one, it just takes a few accessories to switch things up a bit!

LOOK 2 NOTES & LINKS:

  • That tote sold out in the US so I linked to an alternative
  • Those jeans are on serious sale right now so I included that link
  • NastyGal has some serious vegan accessory options you should check out
  • I included an alternate for the bracelet that was a lower price

LOOK 3 NOTES & LINKS:

  • This look is to show you how to do something new with a few Madewell pieces you most likely have in your closet
  • I went back to Lulu's for the kitten heel, but you can also use a mule from the shopping list below
  • That pop color lip could be red or coral, whatever flatters most!
 

YOUR RUNNING SHOPPING LIST:

*2/8: I popped in a few top options for now and a couple of shoe options. The vegan shoe struggle is REAL! I do have one Forever 21 in there, but I was looking to avoid fast fashion. Lots of flats which work for your everyday. More to come.

*2/15: new additions! Clogs/mules & some picks I love at Reformation.
