Here I combined a mishmash of similar-hued garments, to form a look that made me feel like somewhat of a decked out park ranger. Always a sucker for neutral, earthy tones…I decided to go all out on this one! Something I have been doing a lot of lately is styling dresses as skirts — just throwing a fun blouse or sweater over the top. Adds an extra layer of warmth and endless possibilities!

*head to toe: Karen Walker sunglasses (ok, I know, it’s time for a new pair…), J.Crew jacket, vintage tee, Topshop textured dress, Wolford tights (best tights ever), Steve Madden booties

    I’ve never spent much money on nylon stockings as they always break anyway, but maybe that isn’t the case when you buy expensive ones?

    I totally felt the same…but yes, these are thicker and great quality. Knock on wood but they haven’t ripped yet, and I ALWAYS snag my tights!

    This is the perfect mix of casual and chic! I love the boyishness of the jacket and T, and the texture of the skirt is fabulous. The earthy color palette was a great choice!

    I’m digging the texture of this dress up against the tights – perfect campy-city look.

    i love how you have incorporated such casual jacket with such a nice dressy skirt…difficult to do…effortlessly pulled off by you.

    Thanks!! This jacket tends to go with pretty much everything — I just wish it was a little warmer. :)
