    Snowflake Brooch

    For Christmas, I was really lucky to receive a bunch of gifts from students. Among my gifts were a few gift cards, a lot of chocolate, hand lotions, etc. I also received this snowflake brooch which I think is so pretty and since brooches are making a comeback I really loved the gift! I pinned it to my green lapel coat and wore it a few weekends ago with my white knit beanie. Coat: Goodnight Macaroon | Beanie: Gap I don’t remember the brand of the brooch, but I think the box was Liz Claiborne which is usually sold at Macy’s. I think the snowflake would look great on most…

    Navy Blue Quilted Jacket

    We’re getting close to the time of year where we need to break out our winter jackets for the next few months, but before we get there I wanted to share a lighter weight jacket. Back in the summer I was at J.Crew and saw this navy blue quilted jacket with gold hardware and instantly loved it. I did not love the price tag, however. It wasn’t ridiculously expensive, but it was more than I wanted to spend at the time on a jacket despite loving it. I love navy blue and the quilted jacket looked so nice. The gold zipper and buttons looked so good against the blue too.…

    Lapel Coat + Plaid Elephant Tee

    Although it’s supposed to reach 80 degrees today, it was colder by about 30 degrees last weekend. Probably worth mentioning it’s going to be colder by 30-40 degrees tomorrow too, so I’m enjoying it while it lasts! I’d like a spring and not just skip over it to summer. Anyway, last weekend it was a little chilly so when I was out and about all day I wore this green lapel coat. It’s such a fun coat and I love the extra wide lapels – so fashionable! To go with the green of the coat, I wore a tee I got for Christmas that has a plaid elephant on it.…

    Ice Skating Look

      Ice Skating Date by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring Yves Salomon   I haven’t been ice skating in years, but it’s such a fun winter activity. I’ve only ice skated in an outdoor rink once, but I have gone indoor ice skating many times. I’m not a great skater, but I can make my way around the rink without falling. When Polyvore had an ice skating style challenge, I thought it’d be fun to put together a winter look. I love this winter jacket! I haven’t been in to bubble jackets since they were popular when I was in high school. But this jacket is quite fitted so I think it actually…

    Chic Oversized Coat

      Chic Oversized Coats by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring brown leather boots Yesterday felt like summer! Today is supposed to be nice too, but as with your average spring weather some days are cool and some are warm bordering on hot. Spring and fall are the perfect times of the year to play around with outerwear. You’re more limited in winter, unless you have enough spare money to buy multiple winter coats, but those are more expensive than lightweight jackets for spring and fall! The oversized coat look has been around for a while. An oversized coat is perfect to throw on when it’s a bit cool because you can wrap yourself…

    Tame Winter with SOREL

      Tame Winter with SOREL: Contest Entry by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring SOREL It looks like winter is beginning to wind down, but as mentioned yesterday I’ll take advantage of the season for as long as possible. With that being said, I wanted to do one last winter outwear look this season which might interest you if you live in an area that is still super cold and snowy or if you’ll be vacationing somewhere cold and snowy soon. Or if you just like looking at outwear fashion. I love these Sorel Tofino II Boots with the light grey color, purple laces, faux fur trim, and black rubber upper. These boots are also fleece…

    Peplum Moto Jacket

    If you’ve been following the sets I put together on Polyvore, or you see the occasional ones I share on here, you may know that I have a thing for moto jackets. I love the look of them and how they hug you as if they are tailored to you. Despite using moto jackets in multiple looks on Polyvore, I didn’t own one myself until very recently. And I mean very recently, like I just bought one within the past month. I saw that a very cute moto jacket was on sale at Macy’s. As soon as I saw it, I knew I needed this blush pink moto jacket in my life…

    Trench Coat

    As promised I’m back with another gift idea. Something I love to ask for for Christmas is outerwear. Trench coats are timeless and never go out of style. Trench coats are easy to find and come in all different lengths, styles, and colors so you have plenty to choose from! The one I’m wearing is from Banana Republic Factory Store from last year. Even though it’s over a year old, it will never go out of fashion! I chose to go with the classic light colored trench coat for myself and I love the tortoise shell buttons as it offers a bit of contrast to the beige material. Trendy items…
