Extra Denim (See Jane Wear)


J Crew coat, Old Navy denim vest, J Crew sweater, Rag & Bone cords, Gap booties, Chloe bag, KW sunglasses
Whenever I feel like my outfit needs a little more depth, I throw on my trusty denim vest (summer version here).  It doesn't as much warmth as I'd like but it does add a little something extra underneath; you learn to take anything interesting you can get when you experience such a long and drawn-out winter as we do here in this tundra we call Chicago.

  11. I love this look! It belongs in a Jcrew catalog. Need to take notes on how you layer your pieces.

  12. I am so bummed that J. Crew is sold out of that coat in my size! I get jealous all over again every time I see you wear it - you always wear it so well! Also, I might have to purchase those Rag & Bone cords for myself - love the color and love how deeply discounted they are right now! Great Monday look!

  13. What a great outfit! I absolutely love these bright pants. I guess your winters are just like the ours here in Austria, cold, grey and dreary. ;)

  22. Hahaha, I live a little east of Chicago, so I know what the winters are like here in this area of the midwest! I love that you're already looking forward to the spring . . . even though it's still weeks away!

    I love the added layer. Layering is definitely key to interesting winter looks.

  34. I love the way this jacket looks on you! I've been trying to decide if the Cocoon coat would be too frumpy/loose but it looks great, even with all the layers underneath! (Maybe I DO need to invest in it after all....)
