The Future of My Blog and Social Media
After a lot of time and consideration, I’ve decided to retire from lifestyle blogging within the next six to twelve months. I will still maintain hollylowejones.com, but it will be geared more towards my academic work and writing.
I started blogging as a creative outlet more than a decade ago. From there, it also became a way to generate extra income. For many years, I have achieved success in both areas; and I’m grateful.
However, as I progress in my PhD program, it has become increasingly more necessary for me to divert my energy to my scholarly labor.
Thank you for your ongoing support! I hope you stick around for what’s to come. 🙂
Khaki green, white, and denim is one of my favorite combinations. I could happily mix and match this combo in a myriad of ways! It’s perfect for Fall (and every other season, really). You can dress it up or down, from a daytime coffee date in casual flats (white sneakers would be my pick) to an evening out with your girls (or guy) in sexy stilettos.
Military, utilitarian clothing suits me well. It’s classic and edgy at the same time. I love an androgynous, tailored, laid-back style. I’m in love with distressed denim, and lately, I’ve taken to ripping up my own jeans. Luckily this cropped, high-waisted pair arrived perfectly damaged, and I love them! This cool shirt-neck jacket and bleach-washed jeans outfit from Zaful is amazingly affordable (as is everything on their site), and great quality.
The “Squad” graphic on the back of the jacket makes it extra cute, and the length is just right. The jeans have the trendy “Mom Jean” fit in the hips and waist, and the light wash is perfect. You can mix and match these two pieces endlessly with your wardrobe favorites.
When I styled this look, I knew I wanted to add a classic, white button-down, and some simple, black strappy heels. I was going for an understated sexy, sophisticated look. What do you think? How would you rock this army jacket and jeans? Leave me a comment!
