Style File 10.11.11

Rowan and I packed up the stroller yesterday to head out on a long walk to the Post Office. We walked all the way there, only to find out it was closed. I always forget stuff like that. DOH! At least it was beautiful out. We ended up stopping to take some outfit photos on the way back. These leather shorts are such a staple for me this Fall. They are so easy to wear (and comfy too!). Can’t wait to throw some tights on under them.


Outfit Details:
Sweater: Vintage
White Button Up: jcpenney
Leather Shorts: Urban Outfitters
Vintage Pins: My Grandma
Central Bow Flats: c/o Blowfish

Rowan wanted to be in some outfit photos too! Except she didn’t want to stand still long enough to end up in the picture. Silly little Cheetah.

    I have to admit that, after seeing these shoes in posts over the last months, I could no longer resists ordering a pair of my very own. My black patent version arrived in the mail, and you’re so right: they may be the most comfortable flats I’ve ever tried on. Thanks for the fabulous fashion inspiration!

  29. That sweater with the pins is to die for!

  30. Could this post be cuter? I love this outfit on you, so freaking chic and Rowan is a star! Haha… I say Star like STAH! because I am pretending to be some crazy Hollywood agent… Not like I know any Hollywood agents though…

  31. I love your outfit.. those shorts are totally cute and love them with the sweater too!! xo jodi

  32. you are so beautiful

  33. Rowan is so adorable! I love the tutu on her! Her outfit is so adorable. And so is yours! I love those faux leather shorts. I have been searching for a suitable one for a while now with no luck. I think I might take another stroll to F21 and see what I can find at an affordable price. Thanks for the outfit inspiration! I took a shot at a color-blocking outfit today using a mustard skirt, your input would be greatly appreciated Jen!

  34. I love this look, especially that cozy sweater and those leather shorts, you’ve convinced me to take a walk to UO at lunch tomorrow! Rowan is so cute in her black and white look, the tulle skirt is beyond words. Love her little bow shoes too!

    Rowan is going to be tall, like a supermodel when she grows up!

  36. Beautiful ladies. Jen, you inspired me to pin two of my great Grandma’s brooches on my dress this morning (they looked fabulous & are completely out of the realm of my normal routine). Rowan, you inspired kisses for my Levi. Hope you both have a lovely weekend!

  37. Love the leather shorts. I never thought they’d be cute in the real world. I was wrong! So glad to have found you site. I recently gave birth to my first child, a little girl named Scarlet. Even more recently, I started a fashion blog to inspire others mommas and ladies to get up, get dressed and feel great about themselves. I love reading your blog for inspiration! XO

  38. These pictures are so cute! I can’t believe how tall Rowan is! I love how you styled the shorts

  39. I am really starting to appreciate the leather shorts trend. Love yours! Great outfit.

  40. Oh my gosh, so in love with the matching mom and daughter bow shoes – too cute!!!

  41. Adorable! Words can’t even begin to explain!
