ODJ Kelly/Look 5

It’s official. I definitely have no career as a stylist or creative director in fashion. I may have a pretty special closet but it’s always the same old uniform in my daily life. Jeans, jacket, heels. Repeat. Wonderful pieces and no clever eye to put it all together. Sigh.

Not how I wanted to close out my ODJ Kelly series, but I suppose my blog is really about how an amateur dresser like me would incorporate a Chanel jacket or iconic bag into real life. Life un-photoshopped and definitely not Instagram-worthy. Looks so much more effortless when a professional puts an outfit together–I rip out pages of magazines whenever I find Chanel RTW in an editorial for inspiration, with all the cool accessories and layering pieces. But the reality is that I’d rather use my spare five minutes constructively with my flat iron in the morning than rummage through my closet for five exasperating minutes to figure out how to look less… well, predictable.

I know, dressing well is about thoughtful consideration, creativity, and a little whimsy. But as much as I try, I think I actually have very little patience for it. My heart wants to leave the house looking like Grace Kelly (or Lily van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl) every day, but my head is always already a few steps ahead, rushing out the door after my to-do list for the day instead.

ODJ Kelly/Look 5:
Chanel 10A jacket with goatskin leather strips blended into the tweed, Exhilaration dark jeans, YSL nude tribtoo slingbacks, white t-shirt.

What am I missing here to spice up my wardrobe? Maybe some signature jewelry? Less neutral colors in my wardrobe? Raise your hand if you can come over and help me pull outfits together :D!

    I think the jacket would look nice with a pretty short dress, a skirt, shorts, or even skinny pants. If you’ve the time, please check out the outfits I’ve put together: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=93909869

    This outfit is pretty and simple. If you pair it with white pants, will it look more elegant?
