Tomboy Style (See Jane Wear)

Zara jacket (old but similar), rag & bone jeans (shop more rag & bone jeans here), old Vince shoes (similar--they're amazing! shop more oxfords here), Vince tee, Chanel bag (shop vintage Chanel here)
I could never let men have all the fun.  Sure, I like dresses, skirts, sequins, but a trim black pant with oxfords and a blazer?  I mean, we women look just as good in that stuff.  I always like to have a hint of androgyny in my outfits--keeps things interesting.  Maybe that's why I've always liked my hair on the shorter side.  It's all making sense to me now...I was a tomboy in a past life (because I certainly wasn't in this life).

Why You Need a Bomber Jacket for Spring (See Jane Wear)

Vince bomber. (look for less here and here), Vince turtleneck (similar on sale), Paige jeans, Stan Smith shoes, Illesteva sunglasses, YSL bag

Is it just me or has this been a crazy week?  It feels like I need more days in the week right now and tomorrow is already Thursday!  I only have time for a quick, one picture post.  This bomber (shop all bombers); bought it in the fall and already thinking about how to wear it now and in the spring.  THOSE are the pieces you should be buying, folks!  I love it--and can't wait to wear it over a black slip dress once the temperatures warm up.

Blending In (See Jane Wear)

Madewell top (also here and shop more Madewell here), Mother jeans (shop Mother here), Valentino pumps (look for less here), J Crew coat, Cuyana bag (shop more saddle bags here), Illesteva sunglasses (shop more illesteva here)

Remember when cupcakes were so trendy?  That's when I first started blogging (almost exactly seven years ago).  Then, macarons became the dessert du jour right around the time Instagram came to be.  Now, doughnuts are having their big moment--and have been for a few years now.  Why do I mention this?  Well, these photos are taken at the Doughnut Vault in Chicago; it's delicious--go if you are ever in town.  But also, I've been blogging forever and I just realized that my anniversary is coming up.
