AJ Wears :: A Casual Suit

Today is my ode to Ellen DeGeneres. I love a good suit, and wearing it with sneakers is just FUN. We'll just call this the new casual Friday.

Suit, The Limited (Blazer, Pants).
Sweater, TJ Maxx (similar, on sale!).
Sneakers, Converse (exact).
Bag, Balenciaga (similar from Nine West).

More times I wore a suit:

AJ Wears :: A Neon Jacket

Stripes on Stripes on Neon? You betcha. Some days I go all out. This jacket is obnoxiously fun to wear; it has a cropped shape that's almost swingy in the back with a moto front. Since it was randomly cool enough to wear a jacket in the summer, I went for it, but I think this will be fun in the fall as well with some leather! I. LOVE. JACKETS. (PS - are any RSS readers missing the first photo recently? It should be a full outfit shot below. I'm having issues.)


Jacket, Zara (similar in yellow from Choies).
Tee, The Limited (similar).
Jeans, Hudson (exact).
Wedges, ShoeDazzle (exact).
Necklace, BaubleBar (exact - s/o but I stalked it, so you can too!).

AJ Wears :: A Pineapple Tank

Happy Friday, Happy August. My favorite casual Friday combination is skinny jeans + blazer + tank or tee. It usually transitions well to patio dining later in the evening if you're wearing heels, and you can always ditch the jacket if it gets too warm. But rather than keeping it stuffy, I like to add a little whimsy with a bright color...or, you know, pineapples. At lunch today, one of my friends leaned over to examine my tank and said, "Are those little pineapples?!" Yes. Yes they are, and they're fabulous. I'm having a very pineapple moment lately - both my iPad and phone have pineapple backgrounds too. Mmmmm. Delicious.


Tank, Old Navy (exact).
Blazer, Gap (similar from ASOS).

Bag, Coach.
Wedges, JustFab (love these from Charlotte Russe).
