Well, well, well… March strikes again! I was perfectly comfortable wearing this spring outfit when we photographed it last Friday, and then a cold front blew through on Saturday and brought a mini blizzard along with it. Fun times!
Thankfully, this cold snap will be short lived, and we’re going to see the return of spring temperatures this week. This is an outfit I’ll wear to meet a friend for lunch or to take the girls to the mall on a Saturday as soon as the weather warms up.
Caslon jacket (S) // Caslon tee (S) // AG Jeans c/o (28; also at Nordstrom) // Dolce Vita wedges (8) // Tory Burch hobo // rag & bone sunnies // Baublebar earrings // Victoria Emerson Alicante Mini c/o // Victoria Emerson Ashley on Light c/o
In fact, I’m meeting a friend for lunch today, but it’s not quite warm enough to break out the sandals just yet. Maybe by the end of the week.
Anyway! I love this outfit for several reasons. I think the color palette is so perfect for this time of year. The combination of dark denim and olive green with cognac accessories is so pleasing to the eye.
I really like how this jacket has some of the design elements of military jacket, but it’s still soft with enough stretch to keep it comfortable.
They don’t provide a length measurement, but I think it’s around 21 or 22″ long. I did the “editor’s cuff” to add a bit more style to the look.
This jacket comes in two other colors, and it runs true to size; I have the small.
The fabric is 98% cotton/2% elastane, and they have a great fit and feel. They will give a little and mold to your body, but they don’t bag out. They run true to size or maybe a tad small. I’m wearing my usual 28, and they’re snug in the waist; but if I go up a size, they’re too loose in the legs for my liking.
I’m also carrying the Tory Burch Miller leather hobo, which is a new addition to my handbag collection. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while, but I didn’t want to pay full price. Then I was prepping for a Zulily post, and I realized they have this bag for 20% off. It is guaranteed to be authentic, and it’s available for quick ship (mine arrived in just a few days) but it is final sale.
This bag is the perfect size and shape for everyday, and the nubuck lining gives it a more luxe look and feel. It also has an adjustable strap that fits very comfortably on the shoulder or over the arm. You can see more views of it as well as a video showing it inside and out on the Nordstrom website.
This bag complements these wedge sandals nicely without being too matchy-matchy. This is definitely going to be one of my go-to shoe and handbag pairings for spring and summer.
I wore brown tortoiseshell sunnies because I like how they play into the other brown tones in the outfit, and they’re softer than the black plastic frames I usually prefer. This is a really good price for rag & bone sunglasses, by the way. They’re half-off the full retail price at Amazon.
My only regret with this outfit is that I didn’t think to add a belt. The rise on the jeans is quite high, and a cognac leather belt would take up some of that space, plus it would really pull the outfit together.
