Autumn and winter are my favorite seasons, for many reasons. I love when the changing leaves light the trees afire. It often seems as if a pumpkin spice latte is just another of my appendages.  Christmas lights, thick socks, a bonfire, time with family: I could go on for days. So naturally, my favorite way to dress is bundled up; army jackets, scarves and hats, boots and more boots — these things are my jam.  My happy place. One of my most beloved pieces is my J Crew army jacket I got a few years back. I wear it basically every day; like, people know me as the “green jacket girl.” I’m pretty content with mine, but I wouldn’t mine a warmer version with a hood and some fur on the colder days. Here are some great options I’ve found around online shopping (instead of doing homework, duh), no matter your budget. Actually, the $60 version from the slightly sketchy online store found via Pinterest might be my favorite. And happy day, both the AE and Madewell versions are on sale if they suit your fancy!

now that there’s finally a bit of chill in the air, it’s time to bring out the beanies. I’m all about these   featuring a little pom pom, they’re warm, current, cool and fun. it’s the closet I’ll ever get to being a cheerleader, aside from my brief stint in junior high. if you’re a little cautious stick with the basic black. go for the fur if you’re feelin’ a little sassy, and the patterned if you’re bold. I’ll take all three.

so it’s Monday. and I love Madewell. so there we go? season after season, Madewell’s classics with a fresh twist are a hit; they make me feel all of the good happy fashion feelings. this season is no exception. here are some of my current favorites pieced together for a look that’s perfectly Mondayish. I’m all about some flannel caps these days (got a great, less expensive alternative at Target!), and now that the weather’s finally fit for sweaters around these parts, this grey number paired with black skinnies and killer boots is perfect for all of the Monday activities. and THAT bag. oh my. a cure for the Mondays, that’s what it is. not that I can afford any of this. broke college gals can dream, huh? and make Christmas lists. oh, we can make Christmas lists. Dear Santa, gimme all the Madewell! wishing you a happy week + lots of Madewell dreams yourselves.
love + Jane

So, I love Pinterest. A lot.  In short, I think it’s a great place to catalog things you love and are interested in. And on top of that, I think it’s a wonderful source of inspiration in so many areas. Recently, I was perusing through my style board and gravitated toward these photos, both featuring lovely cyclin’ ladies in floral, one with stripes + one in a fun tee. Drawing from these looks, I put together this little piece of outfit inspiration. Enjoy! Oh, and free to follow along with my pins if you’d like!
