Urban Safari (See Jane Wear)

H&M jacket, c/o Alain Bella top, AE cargo jeggings, BR necklace, Chloe bag, UO sunglasses, Jeffrey Campbell boat shoes

I wore this outfit around town last weekend when the weather was actually decent (ah, memories).  I love neutrals and love to incorporate them into my outfits whenever possible.  Army green and dusty pink are unexpected neutrals and I think wearing them at the same time is a fun way to mix it up rather than donning my usual uniform of jeans when running weekend errands in this almost-springlike weather.  Also, a perfectly over-sized white shirt is a staple for any good weekend.




How was your weekend?

I always get excited when I see a casual outfit that I really love - as a girl who is generally drawn towards little besides party dresses, I love when I see a perfectly put together casual look, and THIS, m'dear, is just that! You look so, so cute! Loving this whole look! The jacket, the necklace, the shoes - adorable!!

Such a great casual look. Those boat shoes are fantastic. And the necklace is a great touch. I can't believe that's from BR. I find that their jewelry breaks quickly. Is this necklace sturdy?

xoxo,
