What I Wore: Mommy Business

blue collar red lipstick, what i wore
Skirt and jacket, Old Navy; sweater, J. Crew (via eBay); shirt, J. Crew Factory; boots, Hunter; bag, MbMJ (via eBay)

The title says it all: this skirt cost a whopping $1.50 on the clearance rack at Old Navy. I’m digging the faded chambray, and the elastic waistband (though not the fact that said waistband is perpetually twisting the wrong way). Paired with flannel tights, it’s a feasible option for the days when I simply. cannot. wear. pants. yet. again. Dramatic pause for effect.

I’m also digging this field jacket, also from Old Navy. I was eyeing the J. Crew version a while back, but couldn’t justify the price. This was a literal fraction of the price (like, 1/8 or something), and it looks pretty good. I’ve gotten a surprising amount of wear out of it already, most of it in Vancouver. I’m excited for the possibilities, come spring.

    • I’m seriously in love with it! I thought my style was on the dressier side, but this is perfect for my non-work life. I feel like I could wear it with everything – and am probably going to try proving that point this spring/summer 😉 It makes me a little less sad for not having a kickass trench …

  1. I like the field jacket, but I’m looking for a spring coat that’s a little dressier. Any suggestions?

    • A trench is always a classic. I’m looking for a nice one myself (and dreaming about Burberry, sigh!). Or you could try a pea coat in a lightweight wool – our spring tends to be cool anyway.

  2. I have a similar field jacket in grey and I love it! So versatile, comfy and warm enough to use it during winter time.

    • It’s probably too cold to wear it here in the winter (on its own), but I think it would work the rest of the year, and it’s so versatile. I don’t know why I didn’t get one sooner!
