Same Old, Same Old

jacket - shirt - necklace (banana republic factory) - jeans - shoes - bag
I will never feel more me than when I wear jeans and a striped tee and this jacket. It's one of my favorites - I love the quilting and the fact that it's wind/water proof. It's cold again in Chicago, and this is my "light" jacket, even though it's made with down. I also wore the desert wedges that I got this month. I've been slowly breaking them in and they're at the point where it's quite comfortable now! I wish I could wear heels all day, err day, but alas - they're terrible for your feet apparently. I love the way my short legs suddenly look much more proportional to my long torso! 

Right now, I'm trying to wrestle with my self control to not put in an Everlane order. This is what I get when I online window shop I guess. I think I want to buy their Ryan tank and one of their sleeveless cotton shirts. The tank because it's so loose and drapey, and I think it might be cute under a blazer or half tucked into cropped jeans or cropped dress pants.

Tomorrow, I will be going to a party! It's being thrown by a local magazine to honor Chicago entrepreneurs under 40, and my CEO is one of them. It's so well deserved and I'm excited! I think I'll be wearing a black dress and some minimal jewelry, but it's nice to dress up every once in a while. 


  1. This is such a cute casual outfit and I love the shoes! XO -Kim

  2. I would like to try one of their tanks (I got an email a week ago about some new releases) and the model was wearing these perfect mom light blue jeans. They're so good with their marketing and photography.

    1. I LOVE their emails. They really are. I haven't caved yet... holding out for at least June purchases.

  3. That jacket is so cute! I'm so surprised it's from Eddie Bauer; I never would have thought to look there.

    And I'm so in the same boat re Everlane. The amount of times I've almost bought hundreds of dollars worth of basic tees and tanks then at the last moment came to my senses is a little alarming...
