Dynasty (See Jane Wear)

Joe Fresh top, Madewell leather skirt (sold out but similar), Banana Republic necklace (old), Pour la Victoire wedges,
There's something about turquoise, leather and a slightly feathered 'do that makes me feel all Dynasty-like.  I have a slight obsession with the 80s, but perhaps, this time I've taken it too far.

On an unrelated note, here's a gratuitous picture of my little hambone, Jerome.  He doesn't move much and avoids walking but he does love parking it and people-watching, which can only mean one thing--he IS my son.

I love that color blue!!! And it really looks so great with that leather skirt... The light blue keeps it summery but I could totally see a fall or winter version of this outfit too!

I am loving the brown leather paired with turquoise – such a Dynasty vibe but I love that. Also Jerome is adorable!

I didn't think 80s at all when I saw this. It looks totally modern and I LOVE it. I like a leather skirt in something besides black...it's a little less biker babe. And I love the doggie accessory (or are you HIS accessory?)

I don't think Dynasty was ever this chic! Sure the bigger hair and leather skirt give it that potential, but the minimal accessories totally keep it refined! I am loving that blouse too! Wish I lived closer to a Joe Fresh.

Your outfit is lovely but Jerome definitely steals the show. Nothing like a darling puppy to make Monday more palatable. Thanks :)

What a beautiful outfit! I love the necklace!

Lora with an "O" said...

What a perfect skirt for fall! I like how you paired it with a summery pastel. It's a great way to transition from season to season.

Also, love that lazy pup. Hope he continues to park it in your photos!

Cute!! Is your little hambone adopted, or is he just a chubby baby? You both look adorable!

Asher said...

This is quite possibly one of my absolute fav. looks!!!

Courtney Carlton said...

Omg. My Bucklynn looks just like Jerome... can they please be boyfriend/girlfriend?

Really though I'm kind of obsessed with her. She's my first dog and her lazy people-watching is AOK with me.

Pictures of her here: http://instagrid.me/bucklynnthebulldog/

Happy Wednesday!

I love this silk top. I live in Chicago and when I was in NYC a few months back, I stocked up on this Joe Fresh blouse and bought it in peach and bright orange. Now I wish I would have bought this color too. It's such a fantastic shirt for the price!

I can't get enough of this color combo! Normally I'd pair a blouse like that with jeans, but the leather really warms things up and looks unexpected. Absolutely love it!

Did you cut and color your hair? If so, it looks great as is the outfit also.

Kacie said...

Your outfit is gorgeous! Love it! And your bulldog is so stinkin' cute! I have one named Tugg. They have such great personalities.
