asos summer trends




Jacket: Zara (love this contrast sleeve jacket too); Skirt: Zara; Shoes: All Saints; Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, J. Crew chain bracelet, assorted gifted bangles

I've been pinning several incarnations of this outfit (best example: see here) over the past couple of weeks and finally decided to recreate it myself. The jacket lends a very utilitarian feel overall, while the skirt adds some much needed whimsy! 

Of course, this is in stark contrast to yesterday's pretty in pink post where I channeled my inner Betty Draper does Prada, minus the darling retro car heels (sigh). If you happened to like that look though -- I would very much appreciate your vote in the Asos Favorite Fashion Bloggers Summer Trend contest! Seriously would mean the world to me, guys! You can vote here.

  36. Love this look, and love the Betty Draper look! It took me a while to get into the show, but oh man... Now I am addicted!!! Unfortunately I have been watching it on Netflix so I am still super behind!

  37. I saw that jacket in store! Too awesome. The leather sleeves are so edgy, but the whole look reads casual, which is kind of hard to do sometimes... especially in just one piece!
