Who would’ve thought I would ever post something on here that would involve the words ‘Chanel inspired’? Well, I didn’t. If you know me, you will know that I mostly wear very basic and comfy clothes. Nothing wrong with that but I am not really into wearing fancy things. This outfit is based around the jacket I am wearing, which I am branding ‘a Chanel type jacket’. Curious about my full outfit? I hope you’ll like it as well!
Quilted Jacket: ONLY | Astrology Shirt: Tommy Hilfiger
Who would’ve thought that I would be wearing a quilted/tweed type jacket? When I saw this one on sale a couple of months ago, my eye got drawn to it. It’s this dark green color with black and some very amount of glitter in it as well. In these photos you can’t even tell but that makes it easy to dress up or down. Is it just me or does this jacket remind me of a Chanel type jacket?
Since I am not a girly outfit type of girl, I just had to dress the ‘fancy’ jacket down a little. And what better way to do that then with a white shirt with a print on the front? Not just some ordinary print. No, this features all the astrology signs and that’s why I love it. I also want to try and style this jacket with my concert merchandise from Justin Timberlake because I think that would look good as well.
Black Cargo Pants: ONLY
This outfit is mostly based around the jacket. So, when I tried on the jacket and decided on the shirt, I was still debating on wearing my typical high waisted Levi’s jeans or go with these stretchy cargo pants. I tried on both and eventually went with the cargo pants. Why? Because these are sooooo comfy. The pants has pockets on the legs and cuff a little at the bottom. Since I had weird ankles, the cuff isn’t really cuffed around my ankle. That’s why I asked my mom to take them in a bit so they will cuff.
Black Bag: Guess | White Sneakers: Adidas
Am I the only one that loves the Chanel Trendy bag? I first saw LornaLuxe got it and actually did a give away with it. Of course I entered. Unfortunately I didn’t win but ever since then I just loved the bag. Since I am not ready to spend that much money on a bag, I just admired it on Instagram, until… I saw this look-a-like from Guess! This bag is amazing because it definitely looks like the Chanel Trendy bag and it fits so much. On this day in Amsterdam I also brought a water bottle and my camera in this bag (besides all the other crap I take with me on the daily bases). Pretty amazing, right?
When choosing my shoes for this outfit, I first thought about my black boots but that make this outfit a little bit too ‘tough’. So, in the end I opted for my beloved white sneakers. Right now I own three or four types of white sneakers but they are all a little different. This pair from Adidas is a pair I actually designed myself on their website. You might not be able to tell from these photos, but the shoes aren’t really white. They are the Superstar kind and have this very light grey color with all white details. Very simple, just like you would expect from white sneakers!
Infinity Bracelet: MyJewellery | Stars & Moon Bracelet: A Gift
For accessoires I tried to keep it very minimalistic. I am wearing the necklace I always wear (duh) and with that I paired different studs to wear and also put on two bracelet. One of these bracelets might remind you of the Cartier Trinity bracelet. I actually got this one from MyJewellery and Elba has the other one. I wear this one everyday because it goes with everything and the moon & stars bracelet I also got from Elba. So, my bracelets all have a connection to Elba funny enough. I didn’t really think about that until I was writing this haha.
After putting together this outfit, I looked in the mirror and thought it was pretty much Chanel inspired. The combination of the jacket and the bag just give me this Chanel vibe, which I love! This jacket dresses up any outfit (like for a meeting) but I can also dress it down like I did with the other pieces of this outfit. Do you like this outfit? Which one do you like better: Chanel inspired jacket or bag?
