One of the things I love about the cooler weather is that you can dress in layers. This outfit is a good example of that. It started off with a pair of bootleg jeans and a plain v neck sweater… but that alone is just too boring.
So, I added a layer. I added a purple tank under the sweater, and added a necklace on top.
But that wasn’t enough so then I added this cool jacket over that- and voila- a layered and interesting outfit.
Layer 1- add a tank underneath and a necklace on top
Layer 2- to complete the look, the jacket ties all the colors in and adds texture
I’ve had lots of readers ask me about bootleg jeans- so here they are! They honestly aren’t my favorite style- but for work they can be a nice substitute for trousers. Notice I wore them with a heel, which is a must with bootleg!

Yesterday I was nominated for a Sunshine Award- which was so sweet! Thank you Laura from Who Planned This.
Since it’s another grey, rainy day in Seattle, it’s nice to have a little sunshine coming from somewhere!
I’m wearing jeans, a tank and a blazer today.
On the right you can see the original look-a bright blue zip up fleece.
I wanted to show that by changing 1 tiny thing- in this case replacing the fleece with a blazer- and the whole look changes.
A blazer with cropped jeans just looks so much more polished and put together. Don’t you think?

Adding the chain necklace gives a little 'edge' to the look.
I opted for flats to keep it real. I'm running errands today- and want to be comfy!
