The never ending rain this weekend made me want to stay cuddled in my pajamas and watch old Woody Allen movies, but I had to resist the temptation and brave the wet weather. When I'm getting dressed I usually ask myself, "What am I feeling inspired by today?" Often the answer is Jenna Lyons. I know I'm not alone in my admiration of Jenna's style, we all seem to be captivated by her. It's refreshing to be inspired by a woman who is wildly successful, talented, creative and has a family. I'm particularly interested in how she mixes masculine and feminine pieces together. 

 How Jenna describes her style:
"There is always something borrowed from the boys and something borrowed from grandma. There is always some sort of tailoring and a more structured element, and then a piece that I might have found in my grandma's attic. I like to pair something a little too sweet and sugary with something more tailored."- Jenna Lyons (Huffington Post)

I love the 'borrowed from grandma' take on this look. The coral lip stick and striped rainboots make it current and relative. Love this look.
Happy Monday!

November Grey said...

The rain was hardcore. I made the mistake on Saturday of wearing my Weitzman's and a very thin vintage shirt when it was nice and sunny. The weather quickly turned on me and I had to purchase a sweater while out! Next time I'll check the weather forecast!

You look adorable in glasses.
