Ok, I’ll admit it. This is a very slight tweak on an outfit you’ve seen before (more than once, if you follow me on Instagram) but I’m posting it anyway because this jacket is one of my favourite things, and I love the total pyjama-chicness happening here with the turtleneck combo. Some day, I will wear this jacket with a colour other than black … but today is not that day. #sorrynotsorry

Speaking of which, the burgundy bag (always my go-to when I want to brighten up black without going full-on “pop of colour”) gave me an idea for a future outfit. It just so happens that I recently acquired some burgundy pants so … stay tuned. Going back to this outfit, everything is old but let’s recap it anyway. My Aritzia pants are still wonderful and amazing, and I still haven’t been able to find their style name much less a back-up pair. The hunt, it continues. The belt came with a thrifted BCBG dress which is sitting in my “swap” pile, all ready for my upcoming clothing swap. I actually bought the thing *for* the belt, which is totally feasible when you’re talking about Goodwill prices. I love me a stretchy, embellished belt. (I’m confident the dress will find a new home too, and a new belt to complete it.)

Also loving? My black Club Monaco turtleneck, natch. It remains one of my best recent purchases, as my OOTDs this winter can attest. Last but not least, these low Prada wedges are old (circa 2013) and I still remember how obsessed I was with the 50s-inspired collection to which they belonged. Those skinny bows! I lusted after them for months until I lucked out and found these shoes on the clearance rack at Holt’s — last pair, my size — right before I went on maternity leave with my daughter. Ahh, memories. Not gonna lie, it’s a bit of a shock to realize that was almost, gasp, 4 years ago.

Time flies. Good shoes are forever. Or something like that.

  1. I LOVE these shoes! Your whole outfit is perfectly balanced. I’m getting better at balancing color, but my silhouettes still need some work. Onward and upward, I suppose. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Would you wear the jacket just as a top? I mean, without anything under it (or just a camisole or tank)? I love it, but am wondering if it could be worn without another layer.

    • I usually wear it with a camisole or tank. I could probably wear it on its own, but it would feel weird to me. Like wearing a blazer without anything underneath. I just think of it as a jacket, rather than a top.
