Classic Flair

Lately I've been reaching for the cropped ladylike jackets in my closet in lieu of cardigans or blazers- and I think this inclination is here to stay. There is no easier way to look put together, and paired with bright pants, golden accents and the tote that I'd been eyeing for over a year and finally scored on sale... makes for a super easy every day look.

Oh, and by total chance... the bestie and I showed up that day wearing the exact same belt styled in totally different ways. Love it!

Wearing: Zara (TRF) jacket and pants, thrifted blouse (last seen here), vintage Bruno Magli pumps, Tom Ford sunnies, MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton bag


Lucky you, got that bag on sale! It looks great. Love your style - so elegant :)

You definitely nailed the lady-like look. But I also love how edgy and modern this outfit is, thanks to the electric blue jeans ;)

I adore the bow front blouse, and it contrast so well with the blue pants! You look fantastic!

I'm crazy about this bag ever since I saw it months ago! Still, it's just way too expensive for me.. You're really lucky to score such an amazing piece on sale!!! :o)

I love how ladylike this outfit is, with just that unexpected pop of colour in your bright skinny jeans.

I'm with you! A cropped pant and button up will take you a million places! also have that MK Hamilton bag, but in the quilted patent leather!

Ooh Jen, I love this so much!! The bright blue pants are adorable on you, and you know I am fan of pairing a leopard belt with EVERYTHING! I am mostly swooning over that bag though - sooo gorgeous, and exactly what my wardrobe is lacking right now!! Gorgeous!

If Audrey Hepburn were Asian, she'd be you.

That's all I have to say. :)

You always look so fabulous! I LOVE the sunglasses and bag you're wearing!

THE BAAAAAG! WOOHOO :)! I'm so glad you got it, I'll live vicariously through you until I finally get mine. I adore those electric blue pants, and the cropped jacket? Definitely here to stay. I love seeing the stylistic differences between two friends. My bestie and I have some of the same items, and we style them completely differently. How fun!

I dream about your wardrobe.

Hello Jen, thanks so much for your sweet comment. And yup, I sure did take all of the pics. AND you my dear are absolutely radiant in this outfit, love how you've styled it, and those Zara jeans are just perfect on you. Plus the bag is to die for gorgeous -what a delightful score! xx veronika

This is a look that would most definitely make Audrey proud :) I always love those bright blue skinnies, and might be sort of dying of jealous of your vintage Bruno Maglis. They're gorgeous!
