AJ Wears :: A Pajama Jacket

Y'all already know I am ON BOARD with clothes that feel like pajamas, but look like real clothes. But I'm also feeling this pajama trend, honestly. There are so many chic pajama inspired pieces right now! I'm ashamed to admit that I also bought the matching pants to this jacket. They need to be hemmed and I'm working my way up to wearing them together, but each piece on it's own is still fantastic!

I don't know. I'm feeling a little avant garde these days. Even though I live in black and white and gray, it feels nice to throw a weird piece in there every now and then to mix it up.

AJ Wears :: Trouser Jeans

Fun fact time! About 7 or so years ago, I was a manager at The Limited. I'd say about 70% of my closet was Limited by the time I left, including a gorgeous pair of trouser jeans in a teensy size 2. Life happens and I eventually grew out of those amazing jeans, which were absolutely perfect for work, weekend and beyond.

When I saw these at The Limited last week, I almost couldn't believe it. The cut has modernized slightly, but the bones are still there. A deep blue wash, pleated front, and a fabulous wide leg (at 40% off, of course). Paired with my favorite Schoolboy blazer from J.Crew? Fall work wear magic, people.

Blouse, Theory (similar from Dillard's).
Blazer, J.Crew (similar from Factory).
Bag, Coach (exact from Amazon).

AJ Wears :: A Long Grey Blazer

Most of my shopping goes like this: I see a cute outfit with a grey blazer on Pinterest. I think, Hey, I need a grey blazer. I stalk grey blazers all over the internet before I find an extremely cute and reasonably priced one, order it, and wear it the day after it arrives. The process repeats itself after I see another cute Pin. Currently seeking: leather "jogger" style shorts, and seriously contemplating a pair of overalls.

Skirt, Trina Turk (similar faux from XXI // real deal at Asos).
Tee, Everlane (my fave - also own it in grey!).
