I love fashion (obviously) but I also like to have fun with it.
A funny story that inspired this post…I keep very good care of my clothes. Everything has a home and it always goes there…until it doesn’t ;-/ I had a denim jacket from J.Crew that I ADORED. It had a small pink monogram on the cuff…small but oh so cute. I have NO CLUE where this coat has disappeared to?!?! How does that happen??? If you are reading this and I happened to lend it to you and don’t recall, please return it to it’s sad sad owner.
In the meantime, everyone needs a jean jacket though, right?!?! So, while at the J.Crew Factory outlet a couple weeks ago, I grabbed another one. But, I was bummed it didn’t have the little monogram on the cuff. Fortunately though, I have a friend that owns her own embroidery business (Busy Bees Embroidery) locally. I sent her a message asking if she could duplicate the monogram and she said “of course”. But I wasn’t done there…hehehe.
I wear popped collars a lot…like A LOT. I think they’re fun, preppy and add a nice frame around the face. That being said, you’re kind of “nerd” for doing that, right?!?! But, I feel like it’s ok if you call yourself out. Then, people can only laugh light heartedly at you, not maliciously. At least, that’s what I have convinced myself 😉 So, there you have it…I asked my friend to embroider NERD across the outside of the collar on my new jean jacket.
I like to have fun and embrace the light side of fashion. Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
A happy NERD!!

I love this so much! Yes, we have to have fun with fashion. It’s how we express ourselves so why not? And if I had your jacket, I would totally bring it back to you. Hope it finds its way back to you someday. 🙂
I love how you turned a bad thing into an AWESOME thing! That embroidered jacket is so cute and I love the bold statement 🙂 Such a great post babe!
