I bought this jacket last spring on a clearance rack at JC Penney for $30 and haven't worn it very much. I have this weird complex where I feel like a linebacker in jackets, yet I can never pass up buying a jacket that fits really well. I think I may have had a breakthrough this week. Now, I'm digging the jacket. I will say, though, when I wear this blazer with the sleeves rolled up, all I can think about is the flashback episode of Friends where Chandler and Ross are in their Miami Vice/Flock of Seagulls phase and continually and quite dramatically push up their rolled blazer sleeves throughout the entire scene. Cracks me up every time.

As for the rest of the outfit, I'm just remixing my favorite pieces - American Apparel tee, ($22 - this is the third one this week! AND I'm SOOOO excited to have randomly walked into a local shop on my way to lunch yesterday to find that they sell my FAVORITE AA tee - The Deep V. Yippee!), my faithful black Converse skinnies (Target, $27) and my Payless heeled oxfords from last season ($25, I think). And because it just feels like a hat day, my favorite H&M beanie ($7).

It's still bitter cold today, but looks like the weekend is going to be a beaut! Can't wait!


  1. Diggin' the outfit. I don't see a linebacker. I love how you mix simple pieces to create a put together polished look.

  2. I love how you put this together-love everything about it!!!
