Mixed Media (See Jane Wear)

Zara jacket, Equipment top, J Brand jeans, Gap boots, LV neverfull, Super sunglasses






There is a whole lot going on in this outfit--pastel sunglasses, leather sleeves and hot pink silk just to name a few.  I picked this coat up to give my classic trench a respite this spring (which I've been wearing to death since I bought it a few years back).  I'd been seeing leather sleeves around stores/blogs/the office and couldn't resist them when paired with a casual, military silhouette.  As for the other mediums in this outfit, who knows if they work, but for now I'll say they do.


On that note, I'm off visiting my parents in Ohio so wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

You look great! I love the pop of pink and the booties!! Those sunglasses are super chic, too!

I just got a similar jacket from Zara, and happened to wear it on my blog post today too, in a similar manner! Such a coincidence!

The jacket looks fabulous on you! Can't believe Zara teased us with three different versions at the same time! Did you catch that? Happy Friday to you!
