About Town (See Jane Wear)


Zara top, Citizens of Humanity jeans (worn here), J Crew blazer (worn here), UO necklace, Dolce Vita wedges, Joes Jeans bag
Spring is so close, I can taste it.  You have no idea how nice it is to wear a t-shirt and jeans--especially this polka-dotted number.  It's  definitely versatile enough that I can wear it both to work and out for a night.  Example:  I wore this said tee and blazer last month on a chilly evening with skinny jeans and ankle boots.  To spring-ify the outfit, I added lightweight wide-leg jeans and wedges.   Yes, the blazer is wool, but have you been to Chicago in April?  Not so warm.

  2. I'm with you -- with the exception of last weekend, it's just not quite spring yet here. I love this pretty, chic look. The top is fantastic, and those wide-legs look AMAZING on you.

  25. Love the tee. Casual pieces that can be dressed up and are simple to wear are probably my favorite things and this tee does it all right.
