Pretending It's Spring: Red, White, and Blue-Striped Layers





Photos: Katie Derus | Blazer: BR (old, similar here) | Shirt: J.Crew (similar here) | Tee: F21 | Pants: Current/Elliott | Shoes: Aldo (similar here) | Necklace: Anthropologie (old) | Bracelets: Saks, Express, Ann Taylor, F21, Boutique

You might remember my post where I was super excited that Current/Elliott was on Gilt Groupe. Here is the debut (and review!) of what I bought: the Current/Elliot Captain Trouser in red (size 23). I was a little disappointed initially when I put them on as they felt pretty loose. Once I belted and pegged them, though, I decided liked the relaxed fit. I'll probably wear them as is for a while, and if I'm still feeling like the fit isn't right, I'll take them to the tailor or potentially try my luck at shrinking them in the dryer. For the time being, I'm happy to have this pop of color brightening my winter wardrobe and helping me keep believing that spring will come to Colorado soon.

P.S. My forlorn look out the window in these photos was because it was dumping snow right when my lovely photographer, Katie, and I finally made time for some pictures last weekend--Murphy's Law of Photo Shoots, I suppose. At least it made for the first good ski day I've had all season the next morning!

    1. The shoes are on sale at Aldo right now! I was just in the store yesterday, and they had some gold and silver ones left for around $20 (such a steal!). You can also find them on sale online here: Aldo Kalaoa Flats.

  2. I have always loved this classic resort/preppy look and you look beautiful in it! I can't believe the pants came so loose in a size 23! Personally I think they would show off your gorgeous figure better if they were taken in a bit, but I know some people like the more relaxed "boyfriend" look. Adore this look though, and the amazing accessories. Also, is this your house? It is spectacular!!

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I think I'm going to get the pants taken in. I have them cinched with a belt, but when I wore them again, it was uncomfortable to have them be that loose.

      It's not my house--I wish it were! I do get to stay there often, though =).

  4. I just love thatnecklace. It pulls the whole outfit together. The golden slippers tie in with the peeking yellow tee/top. All in all a wonderfully put together outfit without any one color shouting at you.
