The weather has been so depressing lately, I don't think the sun has come out in two weeks. And our house is flooding because of all the rain. Awful!
But this gloomy weather gave me the perfect oppurtunity to don this vintage plaid cape I've been wanting to wear.
Worn with Levi's jeans, J. Crew pleated bib shirt, and Prada spring 2006 booties.
While walking around that little swamp to take these pictures, my Pradas were invaded by a swarm of ants. Ouch. 
These shoes are the best though, I swear. I wish I had them in 100 colors. LOL. No, really…I do.

    This is such a great outfit, I’m really digging the mix of everything, love the plaid with the boot color especially. I also love the locations you’ve been using lately so much! So random since I got home from school to check your blog and when I do you post a new post? LOL. Same brainwaves Jane~ :p

  2. aa.salz says:

    Oh Jane… you’re great.

  3. Kaycee says:

  4. not my real name says:

    you didn’t answer my question, do you even read your comments? isaid:
    “DO YOU OWN EVEN ONE PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES??? just wondering, i know id get tiered of heels all the time, no matter how gorgeous they are… dont you ever just throw some jeans and an old tshirt on??? do you ALWAYS have to look fabulous??? seriously, its making the rest of us look bad ;) ”
    and i wasnt the only one to ask if you owned any shoels without heels! please do answer my question! if you did that would be grrrrrrreat! :D

    Hi, saw your blog on teen vogue, while ago. You have great style: Playful, modern, young, and chic.
    Those bright red lipstick is stunning on you. Kinda like lolita in a good way. I have no shoe fetsih, more like a dress fetish. Your blog inspired me to try to explore them more.
    P.S:1st time commenter.
    P.S 2 : Your mom is too cool to be true :) I wanted top look like her when i’m her age. Say hi to her.
    P.S 3: This kinda mother daughter relationship is not always common. Treasure and cherish it!

  6. So Americana! Sorry about the flooding, that’s the pits!

  7. enna. says:

    You look like an editorial. The cape is awesome–it reminds me of a vintage nurse’s cape that I found once but didn’t buy. Sad days.

  61. Amalia says:

    She wore a tartan cape
    its colours red and blue
    and as she spun about the meadow
    collecting morning dew
    ants snuck in her Pradas
    and her pleated-front J. Crew

  62. Pauline says:

    um well I like this outfit, too (except the shoes), but mostly I think what you’re wearing does not fit….and sometimes I find a well fitting jeans, an elegant but comfortable t-shirt, maybe some discreet jewelry and simple ballerinas a lot chicer than always exaggerated high heels and the up-to-date clothings from Haut Couture etc.
    Have a nice day =)

  63. Solo says:

    Love your boots.;D
    So cute..Hope to see more from you.;D

  87. h says:

    You have a real way of making jeans look really chic :)

  88. Kris says:

    …Two of those photos are of Kate Moss who was the catalyst behind these ‘rail-thin models’ that you so dislike. If you’re going to make ignorant comments such as the ones you made about the beautiful women who model presently than at least don’t be hypocritical about it. In addition to that, how can you call someone unappealing simply because of their weight? I bet you would be oh so shocked if someone were to say, I’m so tired of seeing plus sized models all the time. So please don’t say the same about thin women. I’m left flabbergasted that someone with a so-called fashion blog could come up with such a small world approach to comprehending the modeling industry.

  89. Sabrina says:

    Gorgeous cape! I love how patriotic the colours are

  90. Vilde says:

    I love your style, and how you express it ! This looks beautiful and laidback.

  91. Ingrid Z says:

    I like a lot of your clothes, but it doesn’t look like you have your own style…only expensive and beautifull clothes…just fashion… But a lot of it is of course great! :) Hope you have other interests than just clothes, fashion, beauty…Looks like money is what matters in the USA. Glad I don’t live there! Hehe.. But I still like your blog, because you have a lot of awesome stuff, nice clothes and take great pictures!
