Plaid. It reminds me of Catholic schoolgirl uniforms and Scottish kilts.
But here, a cute tartan jacket with an origami shape is super modern. These tartan jackets are the granddaughters of the wool windowpane blazers of the 90’s. Thankfully they are lighter, more flattering and frankly, far more chic than their predecessors.
I love them paired with skinny jeans and pumps like Nordstrom shows it here. But it would be a great holiday outfit with black satin pants. Or schoolgirl meets biker chick with a fitted leather skirt — leather is all the rage this fall!
It’s also on the very affordable end of the spectrum too… always a bonus!
He’s excited. I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it.
He’s ready, but I can’t believe he’s going to be gone all day, every day. He’s been with me for almost 6 years… my buddy. my associate. my Tomas the Train enthusiast. my personal shopper. my lunch date. my baby.
So, in honor of my little guy’s first day of school, I’ve put together a fun collection of “Back to School” items that any girl could show off — in class or otherwise!
Looking Parisian-chic in stripes should be a cinch this season. Anything and everything you could ever want can be found in stripes. And this adorable blazer is no exception. It has a great fit, it’s a great weight for spring and summer, and it looks great with every color under the sun.
My Banana Republic happens to be next door to Ann Taylor, where there is also an adorable red knit dress that I would love to wear with it for going out or a day at the office. But throw it on with jeans and a bright yellow tee, and you have a cute “around town” outfit. Or choose kelly green boyfriend chinos and a denim shirt for a business casual Friday and shopping with your best girls. The possibilities are endless! (See Polyvore.com for where to buy.)
