I’ve got major history with this white blazer - see 6 ways I’ve worn it over the past few years, below. For today’s look, I loved the idea of making it casual and a bit “edgy” with distressed denim and strappy sandals, inspired by a boutique photo. The belt bag is an uber-trendy addition and while there’s a good chance I’ll look back on it someday and think it was silly, what I will remember most is how joyful it was to wear. Not only from a practical standpoint (being hands-free is such a treat!) but also because experimenting with fashion is really fun. Do you agree? Or would you play it safe and lose the belt bag?

Today's Everyday Fashion: Too Good To Be True

When something seems too good to be true, it usually is - and that is certainly the case with this ribbon brooch. It was a great deal on Amazon but unfortunately the design is flawed. The brooch is too heavy, so it falls forward and won’t lay flat, no matter how or where you hang it. Thankfully, the rest of the outfit is redeemable. I am especially loving the fun details and comfort of these new shoes, and am excited to find other ways to wear them!

Jacket: LOFT, $43 (similar below)
Top: H&M, $40 (similar, similar)
Brooch: Amazon, $5
Jeans: Levi’s c/o Amazon, $59 (same, same, same)
Shoes: Ann Taylor, $35 (similar, similar, similar)
Purse: Bloomingdale's, $70 (similar)
Approx. dates: Jacket is 6 years ago. Top is 3 years ago. Jeans and purse are recent. Shoes and brooch are new.

Today I’d like to introduce you to my friend Jane – Jane.com, that is! Because if there ever was a fun, fashionable BFF that helps you score amazing deals, then Jane would be it.

It’s fun because new deals drop once a day, everyday, and last only 72 hours. You can scope sneak peeks to see what is coming next, use the favorites feature to keep an eye on your top finds, and then snag great deals before they sell out or expire. It’s such a fun way to shop!

It’s fashionable because Jane sells the same stylish items you know and love from boutiques across the country. Jane works with thousands of sellers, many of who are home-based. Some of my very favorite things in my closet are from Jane - purses, shoes, accessories and clothing I have scored over the past few years – and they have an amazing selection of personalized items that make great gifts. It is easily one of my best secrets for being stylish on a budget!

Jane is your BFF because returns are easy, using the app to shop is easy, and overall it’s a fun and rewarding experience. There’s nothing quite like it.

I hope you enjoyed meeting my friend Jane today! I think you will like shopping with her too!
