Mix Must for Spring: Silk Bomber Jacket






If you guys buy one jacket for Spring, make it a bomber– preferably silk (because its lightweight and perfect for layering, and the shiny texture adds interest to any look), extra points if it has cool details like embroidery, a pattern, zips or in an unexpected color!  Right now, I’m wearing them over dresses, with sneaks and booties, mostly because I’m kinda done with jeans/pants at this point (3 more weeks to go with this pregnancy!!!), but also because you guys know I love an ironic contrast between something girly and something tomboyish. Come cool nights in summer and into next fall, I’ll totally be sporting these with ripped jeans, leather leggings and over denim cutoffs in warmer weather.  I have three right now– unfortunately they’re all sold out at the moment (bummer)– a blush pink silky one and classic black and white sporty version, both from Forever21, and a navy and gold embroidered one from H&M.  I’ve linked lots of my fave options below in various price ranges– happy shopping!

Mix Must: Mustard Colored Pieces

Untitled #26
Mustard– a condiment I avoid at all costs, a color I can’t get enough of.  Its super flattering on brunettes, but can be worn by anyone really if it’s the right tone– just make sure the shade you choose isn’t too similar to your skin/hair color.  I’ve been adding lots of mustard colored pieces to my wardrobe this season; above, a few other pieces I love.
Happy shopping!

Mix List: My Pointed Toe Loafer Picks for Fall

If you guys buy one shoe for fall, make it the pointed toe loafer.  By now, we all have multiple pairs of boots and booties in our closet, and heels galore– the freshest way to update your looks this fall is a pair of these guys.  They will ground any look with a more masculine edge– for me, traditional flats feel too expected.  Pointed toe loafers are literally my dream shoe for so many reasons– tomboyish appeal, a sense of irony, sharpness and edge, annddddd comfort! As a teacher, I’m always on the run (sometimes literally lol), so these are my fave way to stay on trend footwear wise, while giving my feet a break during the week from heels!  Some of my fave ways to wear them:
With skinnies, cuffed or shortened to show off some ankle– this is vital…there needs to be a few inches of ankle if you wear pants or jeans with these guys…otherwise they appear more dad-ish than fashion-y.
With dresses, to offset the femininity.
With a mini skirt, leather or suede/denim button up, with a sweater or button up– kinda 70s collegiate vibes…
With overalls, duh.

Runway Remix

Varsity Jacket & Skirt


3.1 Phillip Lim Runway, Spring ’13


Victoria Beckham Runway, Spring ’14


Fendi, Resort ’15


Rebecca Minkoff Runway, Fall ’14

The “varsity” jacket, sometimes called the “bomber” jacket also, has been coming down runways for a few seasons now.  They are pretty much EVERYWHERE, which usually makes me NOT want to wear something, but in this case, I pulled from some old runway inspiration (my favorite varsity jacket looks above) and challenged myself to find a way to wear mine in a way that was different, and me.  Also, come mid-winter, my everyday jeans-booties-sweater routine is starting to feel like a rut…


Grey varsity jacket: JCrew (sold out, but similar ones here)| Black crepe flared skirt: JCrew | Grey linen T-shirt: Madewell | Black leather booties: Vince |Gold chain choker: Baublebar | Gold chain and black leather bracelet: Zara (sold out)

I like the idea of pairing one of these jackets (which are a nice change up from a blazer or denim jacket) with a skirt; the contrast in sportiness and femininity appeals to me.  Gold chains and black booties, instead of dainty or romantic jewelry and a more feminine heel, feel right for me with this look, to keep it from reading too “school girl”– they add a toughness that the outfit needs.
