Blazer, Stripes, and Bare Ankles

I have high hopes that you'll be seeing a lot more of my ankles from here on out. Because bare ankles = warm weather, for me at least. I do like to take a break from the boots, but I have a hard time giving up socks when it's cold out. Even if the rest of me is covered, if my feet are cold, I just can't get warm. When I can go sock free and roll up the jeans, now that's a really nice day! (It's the little things... )

Like last week's striped shirt look, this is another look that is so simple, but that I always feel good in. I love the mix of the structured blazer with the cuffed jeans, and the stripes/leopard combo is one of my favorite pattern mixes.

What's your favorite way to wear stripes?

  8. Thank you! I wasn't sure if it would be too neutral-y, but that seems to be what I've got lately :) But yes, I'm so excited for spring weather and spring (colorful) clothes! You always do color so well!

  11. I love striped anything, really. I probably have too many striped pieces, but I just don't CARE- I love 'em too much.

    And bare ankles, yesssss. Finally!

  13. I'm baring my ankles today at work! Yay! This is such a smart look on you and I love how you take a blazer and make it part of a relaxed, but polished, look. I'm loving all of the striped pieces out these days and mixing them with other patterns such as polka dots and plaids. Love the leopard shoes with the stripes.

  17. I'm with you–ditching the boots AND socks means it's warm weather! Also, that blazer is a great neutral on you! You look super classy. :)

  22. Thanks lady! I felt like my lips needed a little spring makeover :)

  23. Cold feet really are unpleasant... here's hoping for continued warm so that we can quit the "I hate all my boots" pain but avoid the frozen toes pain :) Besides the fact of bare ankles, I love this whole outfit! Such an interesting way to do neutrals by combining a whole bunch of them with a couple of patterns to boot. Also love the fancy/casual mix of rolled jeans + blazer and tee + red lips. Bookmarking this inspiration!

  24. Thanks Anne! I agree, please last warm weather!! I've really been craving some color lately (I think it's all the spring in the air) so I thought I'd at least add in a little bit with a bright lipstick I picked up on a whim at Target over the weekend.

  26. Thanks! I was SO ready to give my boots a break. I've still worn them here and there but it's nice not to have to do all boots all the time. :)
