Spring Swing

Chicago Style

The goods:
• sweater from Gap

• jacket from Banana Republic
• pants and wedges from Forever21
• vintage LV Speedy
• men's watch
• bracelets from IGWT, Temptation, Forever21

The forecast calls for a spring-like 70 degrees today, so I'm busting out one of my favorite little warm weather jackets. I snagged this vintage-inspired piece off the Banana Republic sale racks, marked down at end of season to $40. The classic swing shape is balanced by slim pants and high wedges – an effortless look that will be comfortable all day (including my occasional step outside to enjoy the nice day!)


  1. Perfect outfit for today's weather! Fingers crossed it actually hits 70!

    Also, may I ask how you get such awesome indoor shots? Do you use a tripod and a DSLR or do you have your fiance take the photos for you?

    1. I use the Sony NEX5 digital camera (just like a DSLR, but tiny in comparison). Steve does take my photos, but I also have a tripod when my "photographer" is unavailable, and I have a bunch of natural light in my home to thank for making my images bright and clear. Thanks for the kind words!
