Like S., I am paying tribute to Jessica Schroeder of What I Wore with today’s outfit. I’ve been following Jessica’s blog literally for years and it has been exciting to watch her come into her own professionally and personally as her style has evolved. While S. cites Jess’s penchant for skinny jeans, I’m giving a nod to another facet of her style.
I love how Jessica wears skirts and dresses throughout the winter, adding scarves, playing with patterned and bright opaque tights, and donning gloves and little hats. Her penchant for vintage pieces frequently translates into sweet looks that have “lady” written all over them.
I’m wearing a vintage cream wool pencil skirt — incidentally, Jessica was my initial inspiration for wearing winter white — with a simple blue-green sweater. My homage to What I Wore style comes with the soft blue scarf, long gray gloves, and herringbone tights. While my personal style may be different than Jess’s, I’m continually inspired by how she makes vintage and ladylike style an everyday possibility.
