jeans, boots, cargo jacket, white shirt

Inspired By: Rachel Bilson

I came across this picture of Rachel Bilson on Pinterest and fell in love. It’s everything I love about casual-cute. She effortlessly mixes the boots with the cargo jacket without looking to military, and I’m always a sucker for the blue jeans/white shirt combo. I tried my best to recreate the look from my closet.
