If y’all spend any time on my little corner of the internet, you know that I prefer casual styles to preppy or polished on the daily. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good tulle skirt or a nice dress, but I’m much more comfortable in a pair of distressed jeans and a cute tee.
That being said, I’m kind of digging the athleisure trend. I don’t like going out in public in yoga pants or hoodies, but I do like the more fashionable pieces inspired by athleisure. Two recent additions to my wardrobe that follow that trend include a bomber jacket and a fashion backpack. I’m loving these pieces for a whole ton of reasons!
- They’re my aesthetic = black & gold
- Bomber jackets are super comfy
- Backpacks as purses make so much sense!
- They’re both cute and functional
- And so much more!
I took these photos in Asheville, North Carolina, one of my favorite southern cities. To be fair, it’s one of the only southern cities I’ve actually spent a lot of time in, but that’s beside the point. Asheville is a great city filled with the cutest shops, awesome food, and a very cool hipster-esque culture. My kinda place. If I didn’t have to worry about finding a job in the fashion industry, I would move to Asheville in a heartbeat!
