styling my new bf...

You guys, my new boyfriend is so cute. We do almost everything together these days. He's one of the best boyfriends because he likes to go out as much as he likes to stay in. So, as I promised on Tuesday, here's how I've been rocking my new men's J. Crew sweatshirt/top, dressed up, dressed down and layered in:

Dressed up: with Nordstrom Rack pearls, Dior sunglasses, an H&M beret, Spanx patterned tights, Steve Madden heels and a little ruffled slip. This feels like an outfit I could wear around town in a place like New York City, but here in Seattle, breaking out those heels is reserved for a night out downtown.

Dressed down: long Sparkle tank top, Frenchie leggings, Steve Madden boots, Bula ski hat, Nordstrom Rack pearls, and Dior shades. I've been sporting this look day in and day out since I purchased the top. Sometimes I wear it with my Uggs or my Corso Como riding boots, and often with a big, black pashmina and down vest on top.

Layered in: Vintage mink from my friend Mark's grandmother, Sparkle long white tank, DIY 7 For All Mankind jorts, DKNY tights, Target patent leather ballet flats, Ray Ban Aviators, and H&M beret. Ok, so truth be told, it's really hard to pull off fur in Seattle in your 20s. I'd like to imagine though, that someday soon I'll be brave enough to wear this ensemble out to coffee or cocktails on Capital Hill - because I love it!

From hitting the town to cozying up at home or in a cafe, I think my J.Crew boyfriend top and I are going to have a long and well-dressed relationship.

Which look do you like best?

(that's my other boyfriend, Sarge)


  1. SAAAARGE!!! That mink is absolutely fab. I would rock all about town pup!

  2. OMG stop it with Sarge in that photo! I miss that cattitude!
    PS WEAR that mink EVERWHERE!
    It's insane.
