Casual Outfit Roundup: Week of March 20

Already Pretty outfit featuring Gap jacket

Jeans, Talbots Heritage Straight Leg
Boots, Coclico (no longer available) – similar color and shape,more Coclico boots
Necklace and earrings, self-made

I had last Friday off and went to the Gap to check out a jacket I’d seen online. There seems to be some cosmic rule that the three times per year that I enter an actual Gap store, they’re having a mega-sale. I tried on this blush top and olive jacket together, and was helpless. Even though I know that blush color makes me look deathly on its own. I’ll have to deploy carefully.

The necklace is a repurposed piece. The little whistle was on a chunky chain bracelet that I picked up at the flea market with Peter. It hung weirdly off the bracelet, so I strung it onto this long chain instead. And now I adore it.

Cashmere and leather make such a fabulous combination, in my opinion. I love how the luxe and tough play off each other.

    I’m glad that you bought them, because they look absolutely amazing.

    Oh, I love anything Marimekko so, so, so very much. I own none of their clothing because it so rather expensive. Do deals on Marimekko exist out there? I even find it’s a pretty penny on Ebay. ๐Ÿ™

    I love the look of that whistle necklace. I’ve taken to wearing a really old ring of mine on a chain.

    LOVE that belt. What an interesting design! It looks really organic, which is a buzzword but I can’t think of another way to say it. I also love the big loopy chain necklace. Awesomeness.

    I love this! Excellent dress shape for you! and the delicate boots, effortless and ludic…

    That first dress is lovely! I really dig the pattern. And changing and re-using jewelery is always a great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    You look fab in the dress – and my friend was telling me that Gap is having an awesome sale with great stuff right now. I just can’t check it out in the event it’s true. Must. Stop. Bringing. Stuff. Home! I love the jacket and t though. Hmmmm.

    I love that little dress! My first thought about the print was that it looked like it cross-sections of sea cucumbers – I can honestly say I’ve never had that reaction to an article of clothing before. But it’s gorgeous!

    And I REALLY love that leather + cashmere outfit! Even in the photo, it looks luxurious, the proportions are perfect and the black necklaces look great. I think I might need a pair of leather pants…

    The print reminds me a bit of lotus seeds. I love the colors of the dress. I have to say though, my favorite this week is the leather and cashmere sweater. That sounds so lux and lovely.

  10. Clare

    That Marimekko dress is awesome! It reminds me of algae.

    And the whistle dress. Awesome!

  11. Lisa

    I’m a huge fan of the blush and olive. I think it brings out your porcelain thing:).

  12. Heather

    You’re dead-on about the pixie look! Also, I love that the dress has sleeves. Why don’t more places catch on that we ladies have to cover our adorable sleeveless dresses regularly for modesty or temperature regulation?

    That Gap collarless jacket is going on my wishlist right now!

  13. Samantha

    I love that dress, it’s so cute! And I did not know Clarks made boots like that, I was looking for a pair before I found my Steve Madden’s and that would have worked out perfect! Hoping I can find them in black? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m in love with your accessories. The cognac belt is wonderful, I love the unusual fastening. And your whistle is so cute.

    I really like pale colours with khaki and you definitely have mixed that beautifully.

  15. Beth

    Um, J’adore these three outfits, particularly the cashmere/leather combo. I NEEEED that cashmere cardi. I also bought those cognac boots after I saw them on you, and loved them so much I ended up getting them in black! Amazon had the best price, so I justified getting them in two colors. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love Marimekko! I feel in love with the material and designs when I was in Sweden and Finland a few years ago. I wanted to purchase something but it all seems so spendy. Thank you for sharing the ebay link! Your dress is fabulous!
