Mon Cherie

A casual day spent after a 24 hour shift at the hospital calls for engineer boots, my trusty trouser jeans, a breton striped top, and a shiny camel blazer for a touch of glamour. The hair was a lost cause, especially when while running errands, HB gave me a 45 minute warning to get ready, but showed up after only 18 minutes (I counted).

I enjoyed watching my new holographic nail polish dazzle in the sunlight (photos do not display how prismatic it is!), playing with a pointing statue, and in general just being a sleep-deprived goofball.

    You look fabulous….especially considering the lack of sleep! Between you and Jessica at "What I Wore" I am now convinced I must find myself a Breton striped top!

    This is such a great outfit made with classic pieces: neutral blazer, nautical stripes and blue jeans. It's so great! I'm so into the bulky ring that you're wearing. It's so sassy and it fits your personality so well! 🙂

    I love, love, love this outfit! This is so very much something that I'd wear and it looks fabulous on you. The bag. The ring. Love it. Great choices.

    That Gap blazer is really cute, love the print when the sleeves are rolled up. This outfit is a real classic look, informal, comfortable, yet so stylish. The jeans have a lovely shape and colour to them. Really cute outfit indeed!

    Bretons and wide leg trousers is a favorite of mine. Casual chic, like on a Parisien boulevard. Thank you for commenting on Mode Plus too.

    I love how easy and wearable this look is – some bloggers tend to overdo it, but your looks are always chic and comfortable! Keep rocking it.

    Something about a merino shirt or sweater that takes any outfit up a notch. Great look!

  13. 05.11.2011 / 8:27 am

    Wide leg jeans are my favorite. Wore my trusty pair today – definitely worth it. I can't get enough of their comfort. 🙂 Great outfit. You look fabulous!

    LOVE the blazer and entire look overall. Loving the nail polish color too!!! Looks like you had fun at your "photo shoot".

    Just out of curiosity what brand are those wonderful jeans you're wearing?

  16. 05.11.2011 / 11:53 am

    Great nail color and pics. Sometimes being sleep deprived brings out the best of our "inner goofballs".

    Love your outfit, so funny I have the exact same Gap tee and I almost wore it today. Love the blazer I wonder if hm still have it. Gotta try this nail polish also really cute. And your hair looks nice.

    One of your best. Fav and statue from back. HAHAHA! Prettiest photo #2–you have such a great smile and shows the whole outfit. Doing casual in great way, especially with fairly flat shoes is something that usually Ralph Lauren carries off…but I think you might be giving him a run for his money with this outfit!

    Don't you just hate those last minute, we have crap to do, you gotta be ready in 30 minutes (sometimes my boyfriend tells me 15 then asks every 2 minutes how I'm doing, ugh!) errand outings?! You pull it off much more gracefully than I, that's for sure!

  20. 05.11.2011 / 9:48 pm

    Great casual, chic outfit! Striped tees and wide leg jeans have pretty much been all I've been in the mood to wear this spring.

  21. 05.12.2011 / 8:38 pm

    Love the bag!!!

  22. 05.12.2011 / 9:28 pm

    The things I love about this outfit: The Breton stripes. The stripes on the sleeves of the blazer. The wide-legged jeans (I'm yet to embrace that myself). The turquoise ring. And that great bag. Lovely.

    Oh, I forgot to say thanks for the tips on The Secrets of Successful Fashion Blogging.

    I love this classic outfit. Nautical stripes are a favorite of mine and I love the bag too.

  28. 05.23.2011 / 8:55 am

    You are too cute. When I am sleep deprived I get really silly and giggly until I just hit the wall and than nightnight. I'm loving the look, especially the chunky ring. Congrats on all the hard work and your still finding time to be with the hubs. Kudos!

    I know you posted this a while ago but I featured it as modest fashion inspiration on for Saturday and it will be featured on my personal fashion blog as well in a moment. I really love the combination of pieces in this outfit. Also I love the shot of you imitating the statue. hehe.
