While at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago I came across these St.John trousers and knew I would fall in love with them, if they fit. I also knew that my mimi (grandma) would be smiling from the heavens in celebration of my first piece of St.John. Well they clearly fit and I am obsessed with the “don’t mess with me chic” vibes [I feel] they give off! Because my Mimi was the queen of a St.John sweater set the brand has a special place in my heart and the saying “wear them in good health” will never be more respected.
Paired with a sweater for work but I also wore them with a tucked in white crew neck tee and denim jacket for a Jenna Lyons look.
**Please excuse the shoes, I know they are a little too high
To continue to transitional outfit theme this one is one of my favorite outfits I have worn in a while! The skirt is super old Theory that I layered up last winter with a leather jacket and booties. But last week I was sick of my jeans and wanted to wear a skirt but needed one I could pair with a lightweight top at it is still not “cool” out.
This classic white linen shirt worked perfectly for a transitional outfit.
While “shopping my closet” I was tiring to play with pieces that are quintessential fall and make them late summer appropriate. This black mini skirt has been in and out of rotation for a few years now and is just as cute in the winter (seen here) as it is in early fall styled with a denim jacket and espadrilles.
This black and white gingham blazer is my second blazer from Veronica Beard and I found both of them at Nordstrom Rack! I had always wanted a plaid timeless blazer and this fit the bill perfectly! The blazer came with me to Massachusetts earlier this Summer and was so cute with cutoffs and a flowy black tank. Transitioning into Fall (which I don’t have any business doing yet) I paired it with a tee shirt, denim and flats – this combo will be on high rotation through Fall. Then when winter comes around a cool all-black look is on docket!
#nonewclothes is making it kinda hard to have the drive to do full-blown outfit shoots anymore…sorry!! Tagging all of the products worn in these outfits from the past two weeks that I posted on instagram!
As my mom was taking these photos she was saying “your Mimi would be so disappointed that you’re wearing white jeans in the winter”!! Well, sorry Mimi it is 2018 and I love me a winter white moment. The hard thing with wearing white jeans in the winter is that most of my tops/sweaters are darker colors making it a super harsh contrast. Layering it or wearing lighter or more oversized tops seems to help!
