Meh Monday | Utility Jacket and Drop Waist Dress

Happy Monday, beautiful readers!



Mondays are so ... meh. Haha Here in DC, the weather has definitely gotten cooler so I whipped out my leather sleeve utility jacket. While Mondays are not-so-fun, hopefully, my outfit will warrant a response more than just a "meh." :]







There's just something about being well-dressed on a Monday though that just makes the day just a bit more bearable. I also like to think it sets the tone for the rest of the week.


Have a great week!

Dress: Forever 21
Jacket: Forever 21 jacket
Accessories: Forever 21 satchel
Shoes: Zara

  1. Love the Jacket!!!! I can't get enough leather details in my wardrobe this Autumn. I agree too: Dressing well on a Monday makes going back to work a little more bearable.

  2. Ugh seriously meh Mondays haha. I agree with u on dressing up on a Monday to at least make the day start off stylish & pleasant to get through. Great jacket! The "fall weather" here still hasn't come to NY so still a tee & jeans for me ;)

  9. I've seen leather sleeves on trenches so far, but none on utility jackets---but I think it adds more to the military-inspired vibe. And I don't know if I've just been blind before, but I just noticed your bangs and they rock! That's the kind of sideswept look that I want for my next haircut.

  27. Haha, so I've actually seen this jacket at Forever at two separate locations and really wanted it, but they both didn't have my size! So jealous you have it : ) It looks great on you! Love the pleather sleeves and studs. It adds some nice edginess to it.
