Rusty (See Jane Wear)

Veda jacket (shop Veda leather jackets here), ATM tees mock top (shop ATM tees here), ALC skirt,
Steve Madden heels (shop ankle strap heels here),
Chanel bag (shop vintage Chanel here), Saint Laurent sunglasses
I don't like to play favorites, buuuut this jacket gets a little more attention than the rest (last seen here).  He's soft (yes, it's a he) yet sturdy, goes with nearly everything, yet stands out in a crowd--and most importantly, I named him Rusty.  He's everything I want in a suede jacket; I think I like him better than a trusty, ol' leather jacket.  And I honestly never thought he was my type but it's like they say: when you know, you know.

Dusting Up (See Jane Wear)

ASOS duster (shop trench coats here), Paige jeans, Cotton Citizen tee (shop Cotton Citizen Here), Steve Madden heels (shop wrap heels here),
 Saint Laurent bag
 (shop grey totes here) + sunglasses
Trust me, I never thought the word 'duster' would be in my repertoire; I much prefer 'drapey trench.' What does the duster do for me?  It's a nice, light jacket that transitions well from summer to fall.  There are a handful of days that occur here in Chicago and they're beautiful--think 69 - 71 degrees Fahrenheit, calm breezes, sunny.  Yeah, those last about two days and then it's drizzly, cold and time for your warmest parka.  Farewell fall days…I hardly knew ye.

The Trusty Skirt (See Jane Wear)

otk boots
ASOS sweater, Gap skirt (similar here and here), Stuart Weitzman boots (also here),
Illesteva sunglasses, Chanel bag
Every fall, I bust out this black mini skirt.  I think it was probably about $20 on sale, from the Gap, but it's a trusty, old steed and I know I can depend on her when the going gets tough.  I even wore it while pregnant before I really started to pop!  Yes, I can depend on this random, old Gap skirt; in fact, our relationship has lasted about 5x longer than most Bachelor couples.

Take a trip down memory lane and see this skirt worn here, here, here & here.
