Checked Coat (See Jane Wear)

Zara check coat (similar and HERE), J brand jeans, J Crew heels, Madewell white shirt,
Saint Laurent sunglasses,
Chanel 'boy' bag
Buying a new coat for spring?  This is Chicago, after all...winter lasts until June.  I couldn't resist the oversized checks--plus, in black and camel, to boot!

Most importantly, how do you feel about Jerome's cameo?  Happy Monday!

Baby Bunting Bag (See Jane + Harry Wear)

Duvetica puffer coat, Vince turtleneck sweater, current/elliott white jeans, Stuart Weitzman lowland boots, Saint Laurent sunglasses, Zara hat // on Harry: J Crew bunting bag (similar)

We live in Chicago and the puffer coat is a necessary evil.   Well, enough about me, let's talk about Harry's snowsuit.  For babies a year or younger (or for babies who don't walk yet), you're able to put them in these amazing snow bags--a bunting bag*, if you will.  It keeps them nice cozy on walks, which we do a lot in the city--even in winter.  He pretty much wears this everyday, even if it's just for a quick jaunt outside.  

As for my puffers on adults?  If only we all looked as cute as Baby Harry does in his.

* this isn't a sponsored post; rather, I can't get over how much he wears this thing!

Seeing Red (See Jane Wear)

No-name turtleneck sweater dress (literally no tag and it's so cold--from college, similar), Theory leather leggings, Burberry red coat (similar), Mansur Gavriel tote, Manolo Blahnik bb heels, Saint Laurent sunglasses
When I wore this outfit, I felt a little like Kanye West...you know, avant-garde Kanye West.  The guy who wears tunics over leather pants with a long coat.  Except I have nothing against Beck--I love that guy.

Best of the 90s (See Jane Wear)

Won Hundred jeans, Gap cableknit sweater, ASOS camel coat,
Manolo Blahnik pumps, vintage fur stole (worn as snood, similar here),
Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, Ray Ban mirrored aviators
Some things are meant to stay in the 90s.  Sunflowers perfume, Steve Madden wedge slides, frosted tips--you get the point.  But a high-waisted, loose, skinny jean?  Those are forever.  Ever since I had Harry, I've been on the search for the perfect mom jean (I kid...sort of).  I found this Won Hundred pair on Shopbop but Madewell also has a great version.  Come on...get your 90s jeans on!  NOT.

Snow Poncho (See Jane Wear)

Zara poncho (old but similar here and here), Helmut Lang suede leggings (old, leather version here),
Sorel boots (also love these--and they're cheaper than LL Bean!), Gap turtleneck
Chicago had its first big snow of the season.

Ok, we get it, Winter--you're here.  You've said your piece and now you can go.

Pretty Pointed Loafers (See Jane Wear)

Vince 'yaeger' loafers (on sale!), rag & bone jeans, Zara mock turtleneck, ASOS coat,
Chanel 'boy' bag, Vince cashmere beanie
I haven't been this jazzed about a pair of shoes in awhile.  The rich oxblood color, the perfect pointed-toe, the glossy sheen--I could go on.  When I found them on sale a couple weeks back in one size--my size--I knew it was fate.  When I put them on for work on Friday, Eric asked why I was wearing his dad's old prom shoes.  Mission accomplished.
