Today's Everyday Fashion: Juxtapose

My favorite fashion trick is definitely juxtaposing two "opposite" pieces. Hard and soft, feminine and masculine - like leather and lace, or the edgy t-shirt and preppy jacket in today's look. Thanks to the lovely Marie Denee for snapping these photos while we were in San Francisco, and you can see the previous way I wore this graphic tank here. What are your favorite items to juxtapose?

  1. Love the jean color what is it? And I love this look with the jacket and shirt!

  2. You look amazing...You pull off this look so effortlessly.  I will have to try this look and will credit on it.  Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. I really love this outfit! That jacket is simply adorable

  4. oh i have a graphic tee and will mix it with my red blazer! 

  5. adore your blouse! one of my favorite graphic tee designs i've seen in ages

  6. I agree with you! I love pairing feminine pieces with edgier ones. I love the color combo of this outfit. the navy with the orange/mustard pants looks really great!

  7. I really like this look, the mustard jeans paired with a navy blazer/jacket and a quirky tee beneath...only problem here in the UK, for me, is the horse/ cow related icons on the tee shirts!!!! :))

  8. My favorite tops are the one your wearing from Windsor and also the Nasty Gal ones too! I like the animal ones, they are the cutest!

  9. Very cute! Love that look! 

  10. Great look! Have fun in SF!

  11. Love the outfit, especially the shirt and heels! :)

  12. I love this outfit! Especially the mustard skinnies with the navy blazer. So cute!

  13. 'Just from the comments of others, I didn't realize these jeans are your mustard jeans!!    My computer has shown the previous indoor shots of your mustard yellow jeans as a "true" mustard color;  yet~~(i.e., in these three outside shots in San Francisco!!)~~your jeans almost look like they're a rich, Kraft Caramel brown color!!    Either way............ (i.e., mustard yellow jeans OR Kraft Caramel brown jeans!!)............ your "Edgy-Preppy" look really  *r.o.c.k.s.*!!

    I'm so glad you wore your Windsor Store Graphic Tank, J. ............ instead of............ the Wildfox Couture Printed Sleeveless T-Shirt----(i.e., as in the middle of the second row, Above)!!    If I were a child (looking up at!!) the buffalo skull and feather print on the front of the Wildfox Couture Printed Sleeveless T-Shirt............ well, it would just be  *so scary*  for a child;  (and his/her many little playmates, too), you know, J.!

  14. Great blazer! Zara has some of the best styles for jackets/blazers/coats.
