Extra Pep (See Jane Wear)

Zara jacket (and top underneath), Gap chinos (old), Pour la Victoire wedges, Karen Walker sunglasses, Giles & Brother bracelet
I doubled up on the peplum tops today, even if you can't see the one underneath.  I totally thought it was 'light jacket' weather this morning when I went to work but as the day progressed, I silently scoffed for subjecting myself to additional layers.  With the little cold front we've experienced the past few days, I guess I forgot it was mid-August.  What can I say?  Live and learn.

Shut the front door. I have this jacket, and I just put it in an outfit post a few days ago! I styled it totally differently, but I love yours too. This proves to me that it's versatile :) I'll have to wear mine with colored denim next!

Ugh...I live in the Chicago area too and totally did the same thing. Not only did I put myself in an outfit for for fall, I also decided to dress my children in them. Hot kids, hot mom, hot mess. Yuck. Thank goodness fall is coming though, because outfits like yours need to be worn in a sweat free zone:)

I'm right there with you, I totally went for a cool-weather, layered look today and then the weather totally flipped the switch on me. Honestly, I'm totally ready for the cooler weather.

Great outfit, btw! Love the striped jacket :)

Cool design. A leather jacket can be styled in many different ways and be associated with various lifestyles, professions and people. Leather jackets are a common feature among bikers, people in the army, navy and air force, policemen and outlaws. For more information go to leatherane.org they take used leather trench coats and reconstruct them into recycled leather jackets. Due to this process each of their jackets is one of a kind!
