We All Shine On (See Jane Wear)

Weather in Chicago was completely bi-polar this past weekend.  It started innocently enough with temperatures in the upper-30s and then slyly moved into torrential downpours and full-blown blizzards; suffice to say, it was fun watching the city mildly freak out (myself included).  Although I had things to do and places to be, I wasn’t about to let a little precipitation get in my way.

I wore this outfit to a Christmas party but at the last minute opted to lose the leather jacket due to the sheer wetness (and freezing temperatures) of the night.  The skirt was purchased the day of the party while out Christmas shopping; I wasn’t planning on buying anything for myself, but when I saw that this sparkly number was 50% off, it was hard to say no.  I paired it with a top I already had in my closet (worn here) and ended up knotting it instead of tucking it in–that simple maneuver gave me a whole new appreciation for this basic top!

  1. Adorable outfit! I can't believe that skirt is on sale in stores – we both know where I will be after work today!

    I'm in Madison, Wis. and our weather was just as horrible. But I wasn't as cute as you en route to a holiday party – I wore a big coat and boots!

  2. I LOVE your skirt! So fun and sparkly and perfect with the leather jacket. As always, your legs are a zillion miles long. Jealoussssss. Wasn't the weather crazy? I would go into the library in the morning and come out at night and have absolutely zero idea what happened, but I have managed to catch heavy snow, sleet, and ridiculous wind.

  3. Oooh, I LOVE your new skirt! The whole outfit is holiday perfect. Okay, about the Chicago weather. It was cold and crazy and I needed a huge puffy coat or something that I didn't own. But the city is beautiful and so fun! So sad we didn't meet up this time, but I might be back soon and we'll have to try it again then! Hope you had a great weekend.


  4. I lovvvve your skirt! I have been eyeing the sequin skirts from J Crew online, because they have such great shapes – I love that they're not tight & fitted, so they can easily be worn more casually! Unfortunately the one I want is sold out, but this might be the perfect alternative! Can't believe you got it for 50% off! It's gorgeous!

  5. You look so great in that skirt, in fact I love the whole outfit!
    You have a really lovely blog, now following. Thanks for your sweet comment, would love you to follow.
