Recently I came across this quote, “Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place - that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have perseverance to realize the great life.”
After reading this quote, I immediately thought about one of my favorite books, Big Magic, which is a book that inspires creative perseverance. It also made me wanna have fun, get creative, and style my unique self.
To bring some wisdom to the look, I wore my black beret. To bring extra knowledge to this outfit, I had to wear my vintage glasses. I actually have 20/20 vision, but I’ve also been a fan of the “chic smart” look for as long as I can remember. So, I just embraced my hipster side. There, I said it :p
As a way to bring a cooler tone and contrast to this look, I chose to layer up with this grey motto vest. The vest looks good either zipped up or left open because the black turtleneck is still visible regardless.
Lastly, I added some mismatched socks. I mean why not? They’re fun, they’re a symbol of uniqueness, and I think they look especially cool when paired with vegan leather combat boots ;)
