The weather has been so depressing lately, I don't think the sun has come out in two weeks. And our house is flooding because of all the rain. Awful!
But this gloomy weather gave me the perfect oppurtunity to don this vintage plaid cape I've been wanting to wear.
Worn with Levi's jeans, J. Crew pleated bib shirt, and Prada spring 2006 booties.
While walking around that little swamp to take these pictures, my Pradas were invaded by a swarm of ants. Ouch.
These shoes are the best though, I swear. I wish I had them in 100 colors. LOL. No, really…I do.
This is such a great outfit, I’m really digging the mix of everything, love the plaid with the boot color especially. I also love the locations you’ve been using lately so much! So random since I got home from school to check your blog and when I do you post a new post? LOL. Same brainwaves Jane~ :p
Oh Jane… you’re great.
yay second comment! anyways, i love the booties!! and the jeans! and you look super warm…luv ya!
not my real name says
you didn’t answer my question, do you even read your comments? isaid:
“DO YOU OWN EVEN ONE PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES??? just wondering, i know id get tiered of heels all the time, no matter how gorgeous they are… dont you ever just throw some jeans and an old tshirt on??? do you ALWAYS have to look fabulous??? seriously, its making the rest of us look bad ;) ”
and i wasnt the only one to ask if you owned any shoels without heels! please do answer my question! if you did that would be grrrrrrreat! :D
Hi, saw your blog on teen vogue, while ago. You have great style: Playful, modern, young, and chic.
Those bright red lipstick is stunning on you. Kinda like lolita in a good way. I have no shoe fetsih, more like a dress fetish. Your blog inspired me to try to explore them more.
P.S:1st time commenter.
P.S 2 : Your mom is too cool to be true :) I wanted top look like her when i’m her age. Say hi to her.
P.S 3: This kinda mother daughter relationship is not always common. Treasure and cherish it!
So Americana! Sorry about the flooding, that’s the pits!
You look like an editorial. The cape is awesome–it reminds me of a vintage nurse’s cape that I found once but didn’t buy. Sad days.

eck! ants!! those shoes look great on you. also i like the shirt you’re wearing too.
Ashley K says
Did the ants come in through the peep toes? That’s so terrifying! I’m definitely not a fan of bugs in my shoes lol!
i love the way your lipstick matches the cape!! too cute :)
That plaid cape is absolutely GORGEOUS! Love it! And of course the Prada’s, perfect with the cape ;)

The vintage cape is amazing, i’m in love. I’ve been searching for the perfect cape but have not been able to find one yet.
I LOVE THIS OUTFIT
I think of hunting on the countryside when I see the boots and plaid cape combo!
This outfit is so smart.
I agree about our dreary weather – where did the beautiful sunny days go?
I love this outfit Jane. It looks like you are posing for a Ralph Lauren ad. Did you lighten your hair? It looks very pretty. And I so love those Pradas!
Have a great week & good luck on your finals. :-)

mademoisselle chic says
beautiful take on american sportswear! even if you can’t have the boots in 100 colors, the color of the one you have looks super usable. magnificent as always!
It’s been pretty rainy where I live, too. Your outfit is pretty awesome. Your plaid cape is cool cuz it’s like a mix of a vest and a rain coat.
Such of a great combo of colors and patterns with your outfit!
Love the cape, grung little red-riding hood! Nice shoes, want them now, just one colour would be signifigant for me!!!
What kind/color lipstick are you wearing? It looks beautiful on you! I need that color lipstick in my life.
you could wear a garbage bag and make it look amazing
….could you wear a garbage bag and make it look amazing?
i kinda wanna see that ! :]
I LOOOOVE those jeans! Did you DIYdestroy them yourself?
Great incorporation of the cape, you really let it become a statement piece.
wow everything coordinates so well. back to nature.
ooh… a friend has these in dark brown and they are amazing! these are too!

Maybe my favorite of all your shoes. So amazing.
You have the best shoe collection…
so jealous of your shoe collection! one can only dream!
how do you keep all of your shoes looking so new??
beautiful outfit, and lovely cape btw
You look beautiful in every photos, and I just love your skin!
She wore a tartan cape
its colours red and blue
and as she spun about the meadow
collecting morning dew
ants snuck in her Pradas
and her pleated-front J. Crew
um well I like this outfit, too (except the shoes), but mostly I think what you’re wearing does not fit….and sometimes I find a well fitting jeans, an elegant but comfortable t-shirt, maybe some discreet jewelry and simple ballerinas a lot chicer than always exaggerated high heels and the up-to-date clothings from Haut Couture etc.
Have a nice day =)
Love your boots.;D
So cute..Hope to see more from you.;D
WOW, this plaid cape is perfect!! It suits you so well! As always you are a great source of inspiration! Wish you a great day, x nati
SUCH AN ADDITIVE BLOG!

b e a u t i f u l

shoes so fabulous, you’re even making ants jealous. way to go. :)
I am just in love with your blog. here is nothing like it here over in Sweden, so thank god for you and all your wondeful pics and fashion tips.
AMAZING, your shoes, the lipstick and well everything else! Incredible!
Hi, i’m making an art project with a vacuum cleaner and i’d like to know what it could mean metaphorically ( for example, it means a child which absorbs every image they see).. COuld you readers help me please? Thank you
I know .. it was so nice last week, but it has been raining all week and all day, this week :( but i like the toe nail colour :D green!!!
wow you look great
the coat is pretty amazing!
I love the shoes & the plaid capelet :)
these colours really suit you. you have such an angelic face!
Another great outfit! I love the boots.
Ohh and that lipstick looks so nice on you, i love how it goes with the cape.
hottie :) amazing outfit! as you always do…
i really love this outfit! and you’re gorgeous as ever :)
wow they are hot shoes!!! you look great! ♥
Wow, this is awesome! [That one running picture especially] looks very “Little Red Riding Hood”, except in plaid. Love it.
You have a real way of making jeans look really chic :)
…Two of those photos are of Kate Moss who was the catalyst behind these ‘rail-thin models’ that you so dislike. If you’re going to make ignorant comments such as the ones you made about the beautiful women who model presently than at least don’t be hypocritical about it. In addition to that, how can you call someone unappealing simply because of their weight? I bet you would be oh so shocked if someone were to say, I’m so tired of seeing plus sized models all the time. So please don’t say the same about thin women. I’m left flabbergasted that someone with a so-called fashion blog could come up with such a small world approach to comprehending the modeling industry.
Gorgeous cape! I love how patriotic the colours are
I love your style, and how you express it ! This looks beautiful and laidback.
Ingrid Z says
I like a lot of your clothes, but it doesn’t look like you have your own style…only expensive and beautifull clothes…just fashion… But a lot of it is of course great! :) Hope you have other interests than just clothes, fashion, beauty…Looks like money is what matters in the USA. Glad I don’t live there! Hehe.. But I still like your blog, because you have a lot of awesome stuff, nice clothes and take great pictures!
great look, i love the cape
Lyndsey Bergstrom says
Neat shoes!! You look great!! Hope your house is okay from all of the rain!! Miss you :)

I love this look on you!
Jane, you’re so lucky, you always find the most amazing vintage finds. I love the cape and those prada boots are so cute, I wish i had a pair. Love the blog!!! :]
