Varsity Blues

3.17.2014


Forever 21 varsity jacket (borrowed from my boyfriend, similar here), Bershka biker vest (also seen here), Express crop top (loving this one too), J brand leather jeans, Mossimo studded belt, Zara pumps, Susan Farber bow clutch, Warby Parker Winston sunglasses. Shot by Isaac Lacey.




Isaac took these pics last week after I came home from a photo shoot I was lucky enough to take part in with Refinery 29 and Toni & Guy. I can't wait to show you guys the result! But until then, I had a head full of freshly curled locks, and decided to take advantage of it. Inspired by the retro curls, I threw on one of his cozy varsity jackets, a fun pair of shades, and a red lip and clutch to match. I must admit that at first I was a little self-conscious about wearing a crop top with such form-fitting pants, but I think the oversized jacket helped add dimension and tone down any skank factor, while the sheer moto vest layered underneath lent the perfect touch of texture to the look. Later that night, I headed out to meet a girlfriend at Ovest Pizzoteca in Chelsea for a much-needed catch up over wine and apps, and funny enough, the first thing she complemented was the jacket. Imagine her surprise when I told her it was actually Isaac's!  I'll definitely be raiding his side of our closet again soon...

  6. Great jacket, you should definitely dip into his closet more often! I know what you mean about crop top, it can be such a fine line between stylish and shanky!lol! However, you totally rocked this look with the jacket, hair and red lips...very fab!

  10. I absolutely LOVE a varsity jacket and crop top combo. I have a similar varsity jacket from forever 21 and just can't get enough of it. I agree— an oversized jacket definitely makes wearing a crop top a bit more comfortable :) Your hair looks gorgeous and I adore the red lip! This look is just spot on. xo
