Look of the Day: Double Coated

For the past few months my husband and I have been shaking our heads at J.Crew's styling in regards to denim jackets. Under a coat? That's just silly. Under a blazer? That's down-right ridiculous. Until, the other day, when I realized they might actually be onto something. I was lamenting the fact that it was too cold to wear my denim jacket, when I finally made the connection. Maybe J.Crew was just being J.Crew and layering things in weird ways, but a denim jacket under an outer coat actually makes sense to me now!

However, a denim jacket under a blazer will never make sense. It would be so lumpy and uncomfortable!

Sometimes I forget about my little Chloes; my babies. I hide them away like treasure, and then forget about them like a squirrel. Despite the cold, though, I've worn them two days in a row this week.

I think the double jacket layering is very cool! It really works with the combination of denim and olive green. I'm loving your cute little shoes too. The ankle strap is a great detail and looks so cute with those pants.

I agree with Jamie that the denim and olive goes really well together! This is a great winter outfit. =)

I don't understand layering long sleeves either! I feel so bulky in them. But I do have to say that I love the denim jacket under that coat. It look effortless! And such cute flats too! Love the shoes! <3
