Recent Wake Forest University graduate Evan Wetmore may be adjusting to life as a young professional, but that doesn't stop her from having a little fun when she gets dressed every morning.
On a recent hot Houston day, her casually chic ensemble seamlessly took her from morning meetings as an assistant editor at Houston magazine to a midday cupcake run at Sprinkles, where she was spotted grabbing a red velvet pick-me-up. Her olive Gap jeggings proved that the controversial clothing item is a feasible option when donned appropriately with a slighly bohemian flowy Anthropologie top layered over a matching tank.
Her bright yellow peep-toe espadrilles added a summery pop of color that complemented the olive of her denim in an unexpected, but pleasing way.
The perfect accessories pulled the look together, including two bright bracelets borrowed from Mom (the orange shell piece came from a vacation in Hawaii), as well as a long layered necklace from inexpensive jewelry mecca Francesca's. Her beautiful vintage ring once belonged to her grandmother. Her cross body bag, designed by Badgley Mischka, was a steal at Neiman's Last Call, and goes to show that black can be worn with more earthy tones, after all.
Despite feeling nostalgic for upcoming tailgates and football games in her adopted home of North Carolina, Wetmore is enjoying the new fashion opportunities that young professionalism is bringing. "I feel like I can take more risks now because at Wake everyone was preppy and confined to a similar style," she said.
"I love that my job allows me to dress more fashion forward and not stuffy," she confided as she enjoyed her afternoon snack.
