I Really Love My... (See Jane Wear All The Time)

Look 1:  blazer, jeans, turtleneck (similar), shoes
Look 2:  blazer, jeans, sunglasses, turtleneck, clutch, shoes

I don't like to play favorites, wait, actually, yes I do.  I LOVE this blazer (and it's since sold out but this one is very similar).  I wear it just as much as you think I do--ALL THE TIME.  Moral of the story: if you're thinking about a camel blazer, just do it.  It will be part of your weekly rotation.

Rust, White + Blue (See Jane Wear)

white pants outfit
Everlane sweater, Zara coat (sold out, similar), Chelsea28 pants, 
Zara heels (similar), Illesteva sunglasses, Chanel bag

When I wear these pants, I just think to myself, 'you're a boss."  There's something about a wide leg pant that makes you feel in charge, am I right?  Add a coat over your shoulders and you're basically the editor of your own life.

The Sometimes Blogger (See Jane Wear)

Gap jean jacket (shop jean jackets HERE), rag & bone jeans (shop rag & bone jeans HERE), Zara loafers (old but similar),
vintage fur stole, Chanel bag, Illesteva sunglasses (shop Illesteva sunglasses HERE)

I know, I know--I'm a bad blogger.  I'd love to get a post up every weekday, but I really usually only manager 2-3 a week.  And during really crazy weeks--one.  I feel like everyone in my life has been sick with whatever has been going around lately and work has been busy; I'm going to be traveling quite a bit in the upcoming month (work) but I promise I won't neglect this web space too terribly.  In the meantime, I'm much better about updating my instagram, so follow me there!

Caped Crusader (See Jane Wear)

black cape leather leggings
Zara cape (sold out but similar here and here and shop capes HERE), ALC turtleneck (shop ALC here),
leather leggings (shop leather leggings HERE), Manolo Blahnik heels (shop black pumps HERE),

Chanel bag, Saint Laurent sunglasses
Capes--they're so theatrical.  You don't wear a cape unless you want a little attention.  Seriously, think about it!  Superheros wear capes because they mean business.  You can't wear a cape and have a bad day--just a little food for thought.

Flare Up (See Jane Wear…Again)

Flares (shop flares HERE), Scarf (shop camel coats HERE),  Coat, Saint Laurent boots,
Chanel bag (shop vintage Chanel HERE), Saint Laurent sunglasses
I had a whole (lever) solidoquy all typed out and my computer crashed!  So, I won't even try to recapture the magic again (heh).

Have a great weekend!

Denim x Denim (See Jane Wear)

camel coat
Old Navy chambray (shop chambray shirts HERE), Frame jeans (shop Frame denim HERE), ASOS coat,
Everlane scarf
 (shop cashmere scarves HERE),
Zara pumps, YSL bag, Karen Walker sunglasses
You know the saying: if it ain't broke…

That's exactly how I feel about denim on denim.  So easy and somewhat forgettable but always works.  It's easily adaptable for the times--no matter what the year.  My denim on denim looks from years ago look relevant for the times but pretty out of date for 2016.  Check out my versions from 2012 and 2013.

Harry's Clothing Essentials (See Jane's Toddler)

pjs / cardigan / skinny jeans (Harry's favorite!) / sweatshirt / parka hunters

I've received questions about Harry's wardrobe; he's definitely the stylish one in the family!  It's funny because as a fashion lover, I was largely underwhelmed by the boys' selection in clothing; it's always orange, camo or says 'Handsome Like Daddy.'  That's just not Harry.  Here are my tips for a psycho like me who loves to dress her toddler:

  • I'm not loyal to one brand in particular for Harry--I like to mix and match.  I buy a lot of neutrals so that they all go easily with each other.  
  • I only buy him clothes on sale; the way this child grows, I can't justify ever paying full-price.  He fits into something one day and the next day, it's a belly tee.
  • I love hand-me-downs.  Yes, really.  I am the youngest of four so I saw my share of them; I'm certainly not above them!  My oldest sister had two boys and is constantly sending me goodies and things I don't even think about--like heavy-duty snow boots…and I'll take them.

Here are my favorite stores--nothing surprising here.
BabyGap (hint, it's always on sale online…ALWAYS)
Old Navy Baby (again, always on sale)
Zara Baby (my favorite shoes)
Peek! (Nordstrom)
Carters footie pajamas (great for my tall guy--and they're adorably cheesy)

Cozy Does It (See Jane Wear)

Vince vest (sold out but similar here, here + here), Vince sweater (similar),
 Paige jeans, Saint Laurent boots, Saint Laurent bag,
Saint Laurent sunglasses, Duvetica puffer
What is it about vests that are so alluring?  They totally change an outfit but are so easy to wear.  Honestly, this sweater is on an every two week rotation for me--but throw a navy fur vest on top, et voilĂ !  It's different.  Maybe I'll put this sweater on an every week rotation now….don't tell.
