Stripes, Chambray, and Brogues.

Want to shake up your standard weekend uniform of jeans and a t-shirt? (See also: jeans and a sweater.) I suggest throwing on a few extra layers and a pair of oxfords.

I started with a basic striped tee + skinny ankle-zip jeans. A chambray shirt worn as a jacket is my second layer, and a much-loved military vest is the third. Lastly, I slipped on a pair of brown brogues and a pendant statement necklace. Presto– I’m ready to tackle the weekend.

I’m going to spend my last Monday of 2013 prepping the house to receive guests on NYE, hitting the gym (I’ve been on holiday long enough, ha!), and getting ready for my birthday tomorrow. Wishing you a 2014 full of health and happiness. See you all in the new year!

  3. This is a great look-its amazing how a striped shirt and jeans went from a Nantucket inspired look to urban street style at is best…It’s all about the layers. I also love how the olive green vest gives the look a hint of vintage. You nailed it sista!
