AJ Wears :: Stripes + Gray

A couple of things.

1. How is it already MARCH? This year is already flying by. I'm not wishing it away right now, since warmer weather is on the way and you guys know how much I hate that. New plan: Get a job somewhere really north before June. I'm sure my husband is on board.

2. This jacket. I love it. It was bought to replace a tweed moto I loved hard and eventually split down the back, but it's become SO MUCH MORE. It's the perfect light jacket, super comfy thanks to the sweatshirt-like material, and doesn't wrinkle when you wad it up and throw it in your back seat. Bonus: when it got too warm to wear, I tied it around my waist. S'cute.

3. These jeans: They're a new favorite. DSTLD was running a pretty heavy Facebook campaign when my husband saw the ad and decided to buy a pair. He's a JBrand wearer normally, so the idea of buying a pair of jeans for under $100 was definitely appealing. I was so impressed with his that I ordered this super stretchy black pair for myself. The fit is fantastic - still need to get them hemmed, though. So heads up for shorties - I ordered the petite/ankle and they were STILL too long. For me, sizing ran a little small too, but don't trust me on that, because I'm a little heavier than normal right now and they might be tight just because I've eaten too many nachos.

AJ Wears :: A Dolphin Hem Skirt

Fins up for dolphin hems! I'm really feeling this sporty trend. Who wouldn't want a skirt that's longer in the back? Since I fully committed to the sport style on bottom with sneakers (another trend that my old woman feet and back love), I dressed it up a little on top with a blazer and structured bag. This is the second time I've worn this outfit, actually. The first was to brunch, proving that it is the ultimate work-to-weekend getup. 

Actual photo of me on the phone. BB decided to call me while I was taking photos to ask if I wanted to go to his parent's house for spaghetti. I said yes. I included it because I accidentally snapped a photo that I managed to almost look cool in. It's a rare event.
