I scored this awesome new jean jacket at TJ Maxx recently. I thought it would be quite a hunt before I found one that would replace my old one, but to my surprise I was barely looking a day before finding this one. I really loved my old jean jacket but it didn't have pockets. Moving has left me finding all kind of little things I need, like a coat with pockets for walks with Klaus. I have to have somewhere to keep my house keys and bags for poop! I'm having so much fun "decorating" this one one, finding patches and pins to cover it with. I actually ended up buying two back patches, this one and this one that still hasn't arrived yet since I couldn't decided which one I liked best. My jean jacket and some sort of striped piece, usually a dress, is essentially my daily uniform. I wonder if the neighbors have started to notice it's all I wear. ;)

I have a new affinity for sheer black tights! I went through a couple different brands before finding and falling in love with these. I don't know, somehow wearing tights feels a little bit more put together than just throwing on a dress. I wonder how long this obsession will last...

Hope you're having an excellent Tuesday!
xoxo

  1. Too cute. And I'm with you on the sheer black tights. My latest fad - which my friends tease me lovingly about . . . I'm brining back panty hose. Am I going too far? Who knows, but I'm enjoying it. =)

    1. This always interests me because tights are a huge thing in the UK. Like, everyone wears them all year round and a lot of women carry spare tights in their bags. You can buy special little packets of tights that fit in your handbag. I was so surprised when an American girl told me they're not really worn over there.

  7. Such a great outfit and your hair looks super pretty! I love myself some tights, too! I usually never wear a skirt or dress without some as it just kind of pulls everything together. Plus, there are so many styles and patterns to choose from! Lovely jumper! The bold stripes are fantastic. :-)

  8. Argh! I had that Mark It Zero pin in my cart for so long and kept forgetting to just check out! Glad it went to a good home!

    As a newbie to east coast cold weather, my new thing has been leggings with dresses and boots (and two layers of socks, of course ;). I don't miss the toe seams of tights getting all wonky and bugging me.

  9. Hey, how big are your ears? I have 1.25in plugs I cant seem to sell (beautiful ebony, barely worn). Want them? I had my lobes sewn up and don't need my plugs anymore.... waaaa.

  14. Dude, Kaylah, I still can't get over your hair-- it's so gorgeous, I'm just staring like a goof. I feel like I subconsciously connect denim jackets with you, also! Totally your "uniform!" Haha!

    I've also been obsessed with black tights lately, myself! I've always worn them (too shy to go bare-legged), but I'm really appreciating the aesthetic right now!

  15. I like Omerica Organic's jewelry!

    Do you think you'll stretch your ears bigger, or have you leveled out at a size you're happy with?

    1. I'm happy at this size. They've been here for over five years, I have a nice little collection of jewelry, I definitely don't see myself stretching anymore in the future.

  17. Lovely combination of haircolours! My own hair is green, blue and pink at the moment so I'm a bit curious how you section off your hair when you dye it? Do you follow your hairline, layer-cake it or something else?

  18. You look so perfect in your house :) Love the stripes and denim outfit! I rock it occasionally, myself.

  19. I can't believe how your style has evolved since I've started following your blog about 2 years ago! It was more colorful back than and now you are basically rocking it in darker colors. Especially black and white stripes (I'm also really obsessed with them lol) :)

  21. I love that dress so much! I've never thought about wearing sheer black tights before, I'll have to pick some up and see what outfits I can put together.

  22. I love your jacket (and think that patch is so you!) but that dress is my favorite, it's adorable!

  23. I do love the new choice of hair colours, I find more than one colour can be a pain to maintain but I do prefer it over one single colour.

  24. What an adorable "go-to" outfit though!

    I LOVE sheer tights, especially in black. They feel so classy to me even when I wear them under a sun dress or cutoffs ha!

    Do you iron on your back patches, or attach them another way?
