Trying on my new Rugby Ralph Lauren jacket


So I spent this gloomy Sunday playing around in a set that my mom and I constructed out of odds and ends from our garage. Yeah kinda nerdy but whatever…Thank you so much mom for being my patient photographer in this little photo session, mom.
Our set kind of has the feel of an explorer's tent…LOL. Like a Walmart photo studio but with an explorer backdrop.
Yesterday I was in Rugby Ralph Lauren and happened to spy the most amazing red military jacket on their sales rack-what a score! It's incredibly well made and *so cool*
Definitely one of those pieces thats easy to throw on with anything…see some of what I came up with for it…
Worn with skirt from Anthropologie, Rugby Ralph Lauren hat, Margiela cut out boots, lots of bangles 
These pants were part of an Oscar de la Renta suit found at a thrift store-a lucky find. Worn with Rugby Ralph Lauren hat and Dries van Noten sandals.
Worn with Hysteric Glamour jeans (borrowed from mom), Ann Demeulemeester laceup boots, and a Zara top.
Worn with an old Banana Republic dress and a Christopher Ross antelope belt stolen from my mom's belt collection.
Shelley and Staci were big fans of the set up, as you can probably tell…
I had to keep shooing them away the whole time I was taking these…hahaha.
My sister was so kind as to take a turn at modeling it-thank you Carol!
Yesterday when my mom and I were at Rugby Ralph Lauren we saw this dress and immediately thought of Carol-doesn't she look so cute in it? Worn with Made Well boots and tartan knee highs.
I can tell that I am really really going to enjoy this jacket!

  1. You look so fab in red. It’s definitely your color. I adore the hat! Have something similar. =]

  2. Joanna says:

    Arrghhh! I NEED a jacket just like this! I’ve been searching and searching on ebay and in thrift stores but alas, nothing is quite right. What a lucky find!

  3. Brigadeiro says:

    What a gorgeous gorgeous jacket! Congrats on your find! Love all the outfits, and the one with the DVN beaded/sequinned sandals is my fave, as those shoes just makes my heart skip a beat (still haven’t given up hope on finding them). Carol looks gorge in the jacket too! Love it with the stripey jacket and flat boots!
    Cool set btw!

  4. Bambola says:

    Love the look of it with the Banana Republic dress… perfect combo of structure & flow.
    Looks fantastic with the Oscar de la Renta suit pants!
    Bambola x

  5. Alice says:

    AH, I love the outfit with the jeans and the Ann Demeulemeester boots!! That’s awesome!
    I’m looking for a red blazer too. But a vintage band-style.

  6. Jaimee says:

    Oh wow..lucky find indeed!!
    I love when something like that happens :0)
    Every way you styled the jacket is pretty much amazing.

  7. Look really top!
    I am a fan of your blog, congratulations!

  8. zoe says:

    great jacket!!
    love all of the outfits!

  9. Lenya Jones says:

    I really really really love those boots! I DIE!

  10. Zad says:

    your best outfits EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Steffi L says:

    What a lovely little red jacket! Just goes to show that one doesn’t need a million jackets to make unique outfits :)
    Plus I am always amazed at your thrift store finds, you really have an eye for gems like those pants!

  12. ainsley says:

    that jacket is bitchingly cool!
    and your hair looks way cute in a braid.

  13. MK says:

    MY favorite is the outifit w/ the Hysteric Glamour jeans, Ann Demeulemeester laceup boots, and a Zara top.
    suuppeerr cute; quoting Rachel Zoe, “that’s bananas!”

  14. Dana says:

    OH! I saw that at Rugby when I went to the Stanford mall.
    I fell in love with it too, as well as with a black satin skirt.
    I always think that people in England always dress up in Rugby for some reason… HaHa!
    Love It!!

  15. Emily Rose says:

    haha the set is great! I love those blankets folded up on the ground. perhaps those need to be permanently taken out of the garage? :)

  16. DJ says:

    I love military coats. My main winter coat is a knee-length grey Kenneth Cole Reaction wool that I get tons of compliments on. There’s nothing quite like the structure of a jacket to pull together an outfit. I’m loving yours with the BR dress- the jacket keeps it from being too precious.

  17. you have such a beautiful family, mum, sister, and puppies too! love this jacket, it could pull together any outfit i think! xx

  18. Fitz says:

    My series of reactions as I scroll down…
    “What a cute little set!”
    “What a cute little jacket!”
    “What cute high waisted slacks!”
    Love all your ensembles!

  19. you look phenomenal in all of them but the first and third looks are my favorites. the amazing boots you’re wearing have more than a little to do with that. the jacket looks great with a belt over it in the last look. basically, i love it all!

  20. Isabel says:

    really love your jacket too – on every one of those outfits! And your Margiela boots are AMAZING!

  21. very beautiful jacket!!

  22. Wow, you look amazing! ö
    Love the outfits.

  23. tina says:

    I super love the jacket!

  24. blair says:

    i love the oscar de la renta combo! it’s so casual and fun but at once sophisticated and military. almost like ralph lauren and alexander mcqueen’s colorful love-child. definitely beyond cute.

  25. Lauren says:

    all the outfits are fab but I think the one with Oscar de la Renta pants and Dries heels is my fave!

  26. Lauren says:

    I love all the outfits but I have to say the one with Oscar de la Renta pants and Dries heels is my fave!

  27. The jacket is practically made for you!

  28. Parisgirl2013 says:

    Lovely. Love all of the outfits. :]

  29. Rebecca says:

    No WAY the sale rack?
    I want that jacket!!!

  30. melissa says:

    this is adorable!!
    your ability to mix and style is always amazing.
    color me impressed.

  31. Ashton says:

    love the first and third looks!
    your sister is so cute!

  32. Winnie says:

    That jacket is fab!

  33. Nicole Then says:

    wow you both look great in it;) it’s an awesome jacket. I would wear it unbuttoned!

  34. Casey says:

    That jacket is fantastic. Rugby is the best!
    I adore your blog, and your mom’s too, but I’m anxiously waiting for Carol to jump on the blogging bandwagon. Any chance that might be in the works?

  35. dani says:

    wow it really does go with a lot.. i like all of the looks!

  36. ashley says:

    little french drummer girl. or with the oscar de la renta pants – little french revolution girl!

  37. Nini Nguyen says:

    Jane !
    It was nice seeing you and your mom on Saturday. You look beautiful as usual. I love the red Ralph Lauren jacket paired with Oscar de la Renta blue satin pant.
    Happy Sunday,
    Nini Nguyen

  39. This reminds me of Chanel’s Moscou collection. :D

  40. I love the jacket. There’s something about it that reminds me of a circus ringmaster. The backdrop of the photographs, on the other hand, is also to die for. It’s so regal and rich. Can somebody say Louis the XIII? J’adore!

  41. Sara says:

    I think the ensembles with the Givenchy wedges & the Demeulemeester boots are the best! I also love the 2nd one!

  42. Eva says:

    H&M has a similar style of the jacket in beige and black right now, it’s featured in their Spring 2009 catalog. I’ve been debating on buying on and I think I might stop by tomorrow to pick it up. Cute outfits!

  43. tanya says:

    wow, only you could rock the jacket in so many different looks–and each time, it’s totally different! just GORGEOUS!!

  44. Jill says:

    It’s hardly Walmart…you look fabulous. Love the photo with you sitting in the chair and that wonderful piece of art behind you! You’ve styled the jacket beautifully in so many ways.

  45. natalie says:

    i must say i absolutely adore your Ann Demeulemeester laceup boots! the jacket is really nice too… looks well with anything you mix with it. you have impeccably classy style. and and and lastly but not least, that anthropologie skirt is one of your wardrobe pieces i really must steal. ;)

  46. The jacket reminds me of my days in full highland dress at boarding school.

  47. Pati says:

    I LOVE outfit no. 3 and 4
    the jacket is absolutely great! i love the red color!

  48. Lauren says:

    i’ve never looked much at the rugby line..but now I might have to take a look..i love the st. peppers inspiration mixed with grunge glam you have going on here.. great blog jane!

  49. Amee says:

    My boyfriend loves Rugby! The people at the Highland Park Village store are exceptionally nice. I missed out on an amazing pair of jodhpurs one time. Too bad we don’t have one in Houston. Your jacket is amazing..I can’t stop staring at all of the buttons!

  50. i like the second and 4th look a lot. and oh, your sister is soo pretty!

  51. DUSKIN says:

    you are TOO much!
    i love it all. but the most coveted piece?
    the oscar pants.

  52. I love the second look with the blue oscar trousers and hat. I have to say I dismissed Ralph Lauren as being way too preppy but this jacket is pretty fantastic.

  53. jo says:

    jane! gorgeous jacket. love the first outfit a lot, the rest are great too. would love to see you in your school uni :D

  54. Ivy says:

    I’m watching the Grammy Awards right now, and I’ve just realized who you remind me of! You look somewhat like LeAnn Rimes, but with much larger eyes :) If anything, it’s a compliment because LeAnn’s pretty!

  55. Diane says:

    WOW!!!! A 5 STARS Aldridge editorial for sure.the jacket is beautiful *droooolll* LOVE ALL THE LOOKS JANE! you and your mum did a fantastic job i really like the picture of you and your dog where you could see the details of the jacket closely,the belt matches it really well too :) don’t you just love the colour of the classic military jacket? Have you tried these looks outside yet?! Keep it up, you ROCK!

  56. Tracy says:

    that jacket looks great on you! i can see what you mean about it being so versatile, looks great in so many combinations!

  57. The Minx says:

    You and your sister are adorable! I love the third look, the shirt looks so romantic, and your hair is amazing!!

  58. Robin says:

    oh my gosh i am jealosu of ur clothes and wish i could pull off or afford what you wear….all i can say is wow u and ur sister are gorgeous!!!! love the maggelan boots

  59. Rose says:

    Nice outfits!!!

  60. i love the jacket! sooo cute :o)

  61. jburgess says:

    Jane, Nice job! The jacket looks amazing and you make it look effortlessly diverse. It was made for you. Glad you stopped by and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

  62. Mandi says:

    I love you in the banana republic dress with the jacket – which is gorgeous!
    And Carol looks adorable!

  63. Melissa says:

    that rugby jacket is soo awesome. i’m going to go there tomorrow and see if they have it!

  64. amy says:

    I love the jacket with your de la Renta pants. Gorgeous!

  65. OMG!
    i can only imagine how is it in your house.
    CAN YOU ADOPT ME? please!!!!! hihi.

  66. Eper says:

    My fave outfit is the one with the Hysterics jeans! And I love Carol’s take on it as well :)

  67. cattirun says:

    that jacket is amazing…. i love its silhouette
    and those margiela boots, at first i was skeptic, then when you made the first post about them i though they were ok and now i think they are amazing; they look so great
    I love the set and it’s refreshing to seeing the photos in new sets, so bravo
    btw i love your blog and your style

  68. sune says:

    that is perfection in a jacket! it really was a lucky find :)

  69. Elsa says:

    I like the outfit with the Oscar de la Renta suit trousers best, but I think it’d look better without the hat. I know then it would be boring by your standards but I think soemtimes it’s best to resist the pressure to accessorise.

  70. Ria says:

    That’s an amazing jacket and those lace up boots just look boss.

  71. Karin says:

    Haha, I’m almost embarassed by how well you dress – in the morning when you put on your faboulus clothes, all I can bare to take on is a booring pair of jeans and a sweater..
    Anyway, can you show some pictures of those wonderfoul vintage belts with gild animals? I can remember seeing some pictures of a mouse-belt or something a while ago, but I’d really like to see all of them!
    (Please excuse my poor english, I’m swedish actually. I tried my best though!)

  72. Sabrina says:

    This jacket, in red color, is absolutly fabulous!!
    Where can i buy this?!
    A french fan <3 XD

  73. CAROLINE. says:

    Something about the ruffly sleeves of your Zara top sticking out has this quaint aristocratic touch. Nice.

  74. misha says:

    The oscar de la Renta pants are so hot&in this season. Congrats for the blog ;)
    misha, Romania, Europe :)

  75. Silje says:

    These pictures look absolutely beautiful!

  76. Anika says:

    Ooooh, love the red jacket. Red’s one of my favourite colours, and I have been ransacking all sorts of shops trying to find a band/military inspired blazer or jacket!
    Love it….and love all the photos too :)

  77. showing off your all-time best shoe collection ever?
    in love with the jacket!

  78. Dusty says:

    what a versatile piece! the first look is my favorite- straight out of a ralph lauren ad!

  79. Amy Williams says:

    OMG the shoes in this post are beyond amazing, all my favourites of yours! Those Dries sandals have to be the best for me though…!

    anyway, i can’t find it anymore, could you maybe post it next time she has an ‘appreance’ in your blog ?

  86. Sunset says:

  94. i read this this morning, but i didnt have time to comment, so many phenomenal visuals! and i had to get ready for work!
    i like the set you’ve created! you and your mother have such a knack for mixing and matching so many different elements but yet keeping it all cohesive and harmonious.
    that jacket is very cool! im surprised that there isnt a rugby store where i live! despite having at least 3 RLC stores in my county.
    i love your hair in the loose braid.
    i really the the ensemble with the OdlR pants. But then the sheer blouse top and the Ann D boots, completly blew me away!!! Absolutely phenomenal!!
    I have to say your blog really puts a smile on my face! take care!

  95. deltay says:

    I consider myself Rugby’s greatest fan, and I absolutely love how you put your Rugby looks together! My favorite by far is your first look with the Anthropologie skirt and tartan Rugby beret and I also adore that military jacket with the black tulle Banana dress! Nice work with your Rugby pieces!

  163. The Ralph Lauren Polo creator have all the clothes of this brand are made of pure premium cotton. And they can be washed in the laundry machine. You should be careful to wash the dark-colored and light-colored clothes separately to avoid color fading. However, wash with hands are always good for any top quality clothes. If the white Polo becomes a little yellow you can bleach it when washing. Wash as the usual process after stay your garment in the warm water with bleach for about 10 minutes.

  164. Juvy says:

    you’re such a beautiful young lady-love your style!
