John Bender

Right, so I threw this outfit together, looked in the mirror, and realized that this look is heavily inspired by John Bender from The Breakfast Club. Case in point: here. Honestly though, that character is a true style icon. 

As the weather finally cools down, I'm instantly gravitating towards long, slouchy layers. Knotted dresses, that same long cardigan, oversized hoodies, and a good handful of shirts my dad didn't want so I took. It's not a structured plaid blazer, but it'll do. And I have nothing against those blazers. I'd love to find one for myself. I haven't though.

And can I just wax poetic about Surya Brasil again for a moment? I know I spoke nothing but good about them in this review post, but I still stand by what I said. I've used a few other brands since, and they were absolute trash in comparison. I just wore the polish for 6 days without any chipping. They are my favorite. I am not being paid to say this. I'm just beyond impressed.


  1. Yes to this outfit Amber!! So good with all the trends in one, like the red, plaid and midi style. Ahhh, love fall fashion! Xx

  2. Love your strong sense of personal style Amber, your posts are all so identifiably 'you'! I bet you're loving the colder weather now that Autumn has arrived, right?!

    1. That's so kind of you to say Gabrielle! We're going through a bit of a heatwave here, but I am ecstatic for Autumn nonetheless!

  3. Yasssss I love The Breakfast Club! Sometimes I get dressed in the morning and realize I look like Hunter S. Thompson. We've all got our style icons!
