In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb (See Jane Wear)

J Brand jeans (via Gilt), Kenna-T jacket (worn here), Club Monaco top, J Crew belt, Zara booties (worn here)

Not quite spring, but not really winter--March is a difficult time to dress yourself in the Midwest.  While my California counterparts are already bare-legged and buying sandals, I'm having to wear another coat ATOP outfits like these.  Luckily, it's supposed to warm up in the upcoming weeks, so here's to hoping that I can wear this outfit again, sans overcoat (but most likely still with a huge scarf).




How was your weekend?

You're actually the prettiest person alive, I'm convinced. I adore this look -- especially the jacket -- and absolutely know where you're coming from. Packing to come home for spring break was IMPOSSIBLE; the weather changes at the drop of a hat!

I couldn't agree more about the weather--hopefully it get's warm really soon! I need to learn how to master the half-tucked shirt...it never looks as good on me as it does in your pictures! Great outfit!

Yes, I am so tired of the cold weather. I want to be able to wear my new Spring clothes and pack my coats. Your leather jacket is gorgeous BTW!

CUTE! love this blouse & those booties! I always love when I see a casual look I love - I'm so bad at pulling off casual chic, I just want to be in party dresses all the time, and feel frumpy when I'm dressed down. That is one thing I really need to work on... putting together casual looks I love & feel good in! Like THIS one! So cute.

Taylor said...

I completely agree!! Everyone thinks we can leave the house like that, little do they know we are still donning gloves and another coat! Soon doll, soon!

Love the blouse btw - polka dots and neutrals! YAY!

Julie said...

That jacket is amazing. Love the whole look, AJ! I know we have it easier out here, but I always have a hard time figuring out what to wear this time of year too. I'm dying to wear sun dresses and sandals but it's a little too cold for that most of the time. Hope warm weather comes soon!
