MiMO Monday

No, Holly and I haven't been wandering around in frumpy sweats, the holidays just got in the way but have no fear -- MiMO Mondays are back!!

It's no secret around here that I love my jean jackets. Yes, jacketS plural. I have atleast 4 variations of the Canadian Tuxedo in my closet. Snicker all you want, but they are an American classic!

They're one of my favorite pieces to throw on over a sundress in the summertime, but I have been trying to branch out and bring them into other seasons as well. Here was my inspiration outfit:


And here's how I made it my own:


I loved the way it gave this simple outfit a little bit of cozy, classic cuteness!


Black Skinnies: LC Lauren Conrad (Kohls)
Striped Thermal: Old Navy
Jean Jacket: Gap (waaay old, like middle school!)
Plaid Scarf: Gift
Teal Watch: MK
Boots: Crown Vintage, from DSW

Now, I wanna see what outfit you made your own this week! Link up below and then check out Holly and everyone else's MiMOS!

Love the outfit! Jean jackets are totally cute. I need to buy a new one since I gave my older one to my stepdaughter(who probably never wears it).
