Denim x Denim (See Jane Wear)

camel coat
Old Navy chambray (shop chambray shirts HERE), Frame jeans (shop Frame denim HERE), ASOS coat,
Everlane scarf
 (shop cashmere scarves HERE),
Zara pumps, YSL bag, Karen Walker sunglasses
You know the saying: if it ain't broke…

That's exactly how I feel about denim on denim.  So easy and somewhat forgettable but always works.  It's easily adaptable for the times--no matter what the year.  My denim on denim looks from years ago look relevant for the times but pretty out of date for 2016.  Check out my versions from 2012 and 2013.

Harry's Clothing Essentials (See Jane's Toddler)

pjs / cardigan / skinny jeans (Harry's favorite!) / sweatshirt / parka hunters

I've received questions about Harry's wardrobe; he's definitely the stylish one in the family!  It's funny because as a fashion lover, I was largely underwhelmed by the boys' selection in clothing; it's always orange, camo or says 'Handsome Like Daddy.'  That's just not Harry.  Here are my tips for a psycho like me who loves to dress her toddler:

  • I'm not loyal to one brand in particular for Harry--I like to mix and match.  I buy a lot of neutrals so that they all go easily with each other.  
  • I only buy him clothes on sale; the way this child grows, I can't justify ever paying full-price.  He fits into something one day and the next day, it's a belly tee.
  • I love hand-me-downs.  Yes, really.  I am the youngest of four so I saw my share of them; I'm certainly not above them!  My oldest sister had two boys and is constantly sending me goodies and things I don't even think about--like heavy-duty snow boots…and I'll take them.

Here are my favorite stores--nothing surprising here.
BabyGap (hint, it's always on sale online…ALWAYS)
Old Navy Baby (again, always on sale)
Zara Baby (my favorite shoes)
Peek! (Nordstrom)
Carters footie pajamas (great for my tall guy--and they're adorably cheesy)

Cozy Does It (See Jane Wear)

Vince vest (sold out but similar here, here + here), Vince sweater (similar),
 Paige jeans, Saint Laurent boots, Saint Laurent bag,
Saint Laurent sunglasses, Duvetica puffer
What is it about vests that are so alluring?  They totally change an outfit but are so easy to wear.  Honestly, this sweater is on an every two week rotation for me--but throw a navy fur vest on top, et voilĂ !  It's different.  Maybe I'll put this sweater on an every week rotation now….don't tell.
