Repurposed (See Jane Wear)

Kenna-T jacket (old but similar), Gap turtleneck, Old Navy skirt (old but this one is awesome for spring), J Crew pumps, Gap sunglasses
I will not discuss the weather.  I will not complain about the cold.

....ok, fine--I can't help it!  I need spring temperatures in my life.  If anything, the abysmal weather is keeping me creative.  I've been pulling items from the depths of my closet.  It's not like I have a choice in the matter; if I have to wear another sweater with skinny jeans and boots, I might go insane.

  4. You look cold in these photos. I don't blame you. I'm high-tailing it out of Chicago for some much-needed California springtime. Hope it cheers up here by the time I get back.

  7. Beautiful outfit. I like how you wore the jacket with the dress. Adding something casual to a dress is a nice way to dress down.

    I know what you mean about the weather. I'm always complaining too.

  10. I know exactly what you mean - I am refusing to wear dresses or skirts until it warms up because I do not want to put on another pair of tights! On the bright side, I love this jacket - the color looks so rich & pretty on you :)

  12. I am with you! Enough of this terrible weather! Uggh! I too have over-relied on skinnies, sweaters and boots and now I could just gag looking at them in my closet! The worst part is I don't see it getting warmer any time soon in the forecast! Yikes!

  13. It's so hard to be creative with outfits with a winter this long! I'm dying for bare legs and dresses. You hit this one out of the park though! I love the dark stripes and that jacket...sigggh...so pretty.

    Hope spring comes soon for both of us!

    dig the pumps.

  17. I'm totally with you! Here in Austria it's still freezing cold, even though as of today it's officially spring! Well,... you wouldn't guess it.
    However your outfit looks great, but does it really keep you warm? ;)

  26. I HEAR YOU!!! It's pretty cold in New York still and keeps snowing! I've given up looking good. I've been wearing super thick tweed pants every day.

  27. I love how you paired the skirt with the leather jacket and made it day-time appropriate! And Chicago weather is terrible! It's like it's winter all over again.
