I bought this kimono jacket from H&M while I was living in Providence, Rhode Island this past summer. I was immediately drawn to the colorful agate/marble pattern. The fabric is just too beautiful for words, and it's a really fun layering piece. For this look, I contrasted the organic nature of the jacket with structured button-down. 

I matched the layered top half with some American Eagle skinny jeans from my days as a middle schooler. I accessorized the look with the Betsey Johnson earrings I bought for Prom last year and my trusty handmade butterfly hat. Also, a polka dotted bangle.. cause I'm going through a polka dot obsession.

I really love the look of buttoned-up collared shirts, and I've recently discovered large dress shirts from the boy's department of Ralph Lauren fit me perfectly. The boy's shirts have a boxier shape and a more retro feel to me. I don't really like the fit of women's blouses- too many darts and too much structure. 

These shoes are my proudest Black Friday find. I ordered them from during their mega sale after thanksgiving. I had been stalking them for a while, and I really like the look of clear shoes. Plus, clear shoes give me a great excuse for cute socks. They are a bit impractical, but whatever! They're fun!
