The Jacket & Jacquard





jacket (Gap see similar), dress (Oasis c/o, love THIS, THIS, & THIS), shoes (J.Crew Everly's on SALE), bag (Kate Spade), bracelets (Stella & Dot & Adele of Lexington), watch (Cartier), ring (Lagos), shades (Gucci) 
If I may make a suggestion when prepping your wardrobe for the impending Spring, snag yourself (if you don't already own) a Denim Jacket.  It's a classic, it adds a little dimension and ruggedness to a girly frock, and it will keep you warm enough when there's still a chill in the air.  Case in point, we had a warm spell when I sported this jacquard dress from Oasis (which I MAY be wearing backwards--couldn't resist the exposed Zipper)--Anyhow, the Denim Jacket added just enough warmth while adding some tomboy to the rig.  I've had this topper for years and it still continues to deliver!  Make it a good one, gang!

PS:  I will directly message the winner of the Stella & Dot Giveaway tomorrow and be sure to announce on my next post!  Thanks to everyone who has already participated!

  2. LOVE that you wore the dress backwards...such a great idea! Agree with you that jean jacket is the perfect way to tone down a dress for daytime :)

  4. Love that dress (I wear my dresses backwards sometimes too), it's making me really jealous that you were able to rock it with bare legs!

  7. This is so cute! I love seeing all the ways I can wear my denim jacket. And I'm jealous that it is warm enough to wear just that :)
