Dress: Belonged to my Grandmother, love this one. Jacket: Gap. Shoes: Ann Roth Shoes. Belt: Zara, here's one. Sunglasses: Blinde, or here's a pair. Clutch: Liora Manne Home. Earrings: Luv Aj, love this pair. Bracelets: White House/Black Market (old), gifted, my Grandmother's, Grandmother-in-law's. Rings: Melinda MariaTiffany, custom by Diamonds Direct.

If I had to pick one look on this blog that most reflects my personal style this would probably be it. I wear my favorite Gap 1969 denim jacket probably 300 days of the year and my hair pulled back 365.  I find the jacket to be of perfect weight for both of the transitional seasons, and I'm able to wear it in the summer and winter some as well.  Most of the accessories are staples; the earrings are my favorite, all of the rings, the vintage gold bracelets and the sunglasses.  The dress, which I had tailored to fit, belonged to my Grandmother. I love the dramatic draping in the front and back.  I changed into it the night of our wedding, hitting several bars post-reception, then ultimately crashing our own hospitality suite!  I am typically drawn to unexpected juxtaposition, which I think is going on here by toning down an otherwise semi-formal dress with denim and edgy accessories.  I think I would call my style 'Boho Glam'.  Do you have a signature style?

I hope you are having a wonderful day thus far!

  5. GAH!!!! I think you know how I feel about this dress (and the rest of your grandmother's amazing clothing, for that matter). I just found a denim jacket at the thrift after hunting forEVER for one. I have already worn it about 175 times since then. LOVE yours over that dress, and am waiting patiently for you to send it to me. The dress. And those shoes. And the jewelry. And....

  17. And you wear it so well! I love dress and so glad to know you've been getting so much wear from it over the years. I don't know that I have a signature style but I do think there are commonalities to many of the things I love. I think boho glam is perfect for you!

  20. Love that belt. Can't believe it's Zara. I thought you were going to say, "My grandmother's vintage belt" like some of your other goodies. You are so thin and cute.

  23. Love that this fresh look incorporates vintage and has a lot of meaning, too! I'm transitioning into what I'm calling an edgy boho kind of style. Similar and yet totally different than yours! Found your blog via real girl glam :) xox.

  24. Ha ha, I just responded to your comment on my blog stating that I hoped you used the word "glamorous" to describe your style, and you totally did! :) I think you are the definition of boho glam!! Your style is gorgeous, and this look is stunning! You have the most amazing jewellery collection, and such beautiful and unique clothing. LOVE your style!!
