Elizabeth + James leather jacket with detachable sleeves (worn here as a vest), 
Thrifted patterned tank, 
H&M blazer (last worn here), 
Cheap Monday high-rise jeans
Michael Kors grey suede pumps (last seen here),
Vintage necklace, 
Calvin Klein red velvet clutch.


The Elizabeth and James vest that Lauren is wearing here is one half of probably the best purchase I made last year: one jacket that can be worn three ways! When worn with both pieces together it's a fun twist on your typical blazer, with drapey leather accents elongating the silhouette. Separate the two and you're left with a sharp-cut, cropped blazer perfect for throwing on over a dress, or a rock-and-roll leather vest that screams "wear me with skinny jeans!" Clearly Lauren opted for the latter.

This weekend was a full one as Lauren's sister and her boyfriend flew in from LA for a visit, so this look was perfect for showing them a night out. And it wouldn't be a Brooklyn visit without a late-night dance party at The Woods!

  2. I love that vest, but the blazer is calling my name. I really like this background, too. It makes the outfit pop that much more.
