In case you’re new to my byline, a couple of fun facts about me. 1. I’m from Kansas and 2. I didn’t graduate college with a fashion degree. Yet right after college I landed my dream internship at Who What Wear and moved across the country to Los Angeles. Since then my wardrobe has certainly gone through a mini-makeover. Mainly because I had just landed my first job and needed to bulk up my “workwear” essentials and also because I was stocking up on everyday Cali classics like the perfect oversized denim jackets and pieces you can easily transition from day to night.
Earlier this year I shared the items from my Midwest wardrobe that I wouldn’t wear again but today I’m slightly shifting gears and highlighting the pieces I’d still wear to this day. I’m even sharing throwback photos from my pre-Los Angeles days so you can get a sense of what my style was like when I was living in Kansas. While I’ll admit some of the looks as a whole feel a little dated (rightfully so), the key pieces I’m pointing out though still feel timeless. Keep reading to see a snapshot of my Midwest style and to see which items from my high school and college days that I’d still wear again.
