On Edge (See Jane Wear)

J Crew blazer + belt, UO shorts, F21 top, Zara boots, Express tights, clutch – gift from friend

At a first glance, this outfit may seem slightly adventurous but once you see the demure, classic blazer and hints of lady-like lace all traces of possible edge seem to disappear.  I first wore this outfit when in Los Angeles last month when the temperatures were hot enough to wear shorts without tights but I wasn’t quite ready to reveal my winterized legs (but here I am again, wearing it again in Chicago where tights are most definitely needed).  Sometimes when I travel and spend time in different cities, I like to dress in a bolder manner and take more chances with my clothing than I normally would; it’s sometimes fun to be out of your element and take on the characteristics of the city you’re visiting.

How was your weekend?

  1. Ooh, I really love this! SO cute! The booties & the clutch are especially cute! And I kind of feel the same about moving to a new city, I feel like I should really take advantage of wearing whatever the heck I want, since nobody really knows me, I might as well just wear what I want knowing they have no preconceived notions of what's "me"! Kinda fun! Hope you had a lovely weekend, m'dear! xo.

  2. I love the entire outfit! The blazer is fabulous and I love the purple interior. I agree about being more adventurous when in another city. Especially when that city has warmer weather. It seems easier to be adventurous when you're dealing with fewer layers. Hope you had a great weekend!

  3. I love the purple peeping out of the cuffs of your blazer and I love those Zara boots! I've been searching hi and low for those shoes, and they are sold out everywhere! You look so chic!

  4. I am loving your boots! They're so great and edgy.

    I agree with the weather thoughts and how it affects what we wear. I add black tights to every outfit whenever I'm in SF. And then when I come back to LA, I realize I've left my tan somewhere in August, and I have to wear black tights again. You make this outfit look wonderful though!
