Yesterday was grey and cool (where you at, spring?), so I went for cozy and easy for my tomboy inspired outfit. Everything I’m wearing are recent purchases, so I will give a review of each item.

I’ve been wanting a classic bomber jacket since last year but I waited for a sale, the right shade of olive green (not too dark, not too light) and the right amount of warmth (for transitional weather). I found the perfect jacket that ticks all the boxes in my Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren find. I originally ordered a size XS (my usual size) but it ran very small. I could still zip up the jacket (over a thin tee, but it did not work well over a lightweight sweater) but it was tight across the chest/back area where it wasn’t comfortable to raise my arms. So I returned it with the hopes of an exchange for a Small or Medium. Ralph Lauren online sent me a Medium and I am very happy with the sizing. It fits nicely over a thick sweater or multiple layers and I can raise my arms with ease. I’m not swimming in the Medium, so it’s a win. I also love the bright orange lining, which adds a classic touch. Online promo code PRIVATE16 provides an extra 15% off.

I finally got the Madewell courier shirt (I tried this on a couple of years ago here) and I’m glad I waited for the chambray version. I bought a size XXS so it runs large, I would order one size smaller than your usual. It has the perfect drape to it and chambray matches with everything so this shirt will be in constant rotation for me. I also ordered the Ensign necklace in silver. If it looks familiar to you, it’s because I already have it in gold (seen here, here & here). The length and weight of this necklace is the best for tees, slouchy shirts, sweaters and vests (basically everything).

The Rag & Bone ‘The Dre’ skinny boyfriend jeans are a reboot of an earlier pair that I bought a couple of years ago during a Nordstrom anniversary sale (seen here, here & here). I can’t wear the jeans anymore since they are too large on me now. I really missed those jeans because it was one of my favorite pairs of nicer jeans. By the way, the only other pair of more expensive jeans that I’ve replaced with a smaller size are my Current/Elliott ‘Stiletto’ skinny jeans (seen here & here), which is another hands down favorite.

I ordered a size 24, which is one size smaller than my usual 25, because I wanted a more fitted look for the jeans. I’m glad I did because the fit is spot on and the more you wear it, it does stretch out just a smidge (in a good way, not in a bad-saggy-butt-and-knees way). The jeans are on sale at Nordstrom, so sizes will sell out quickly.

Lastly, how amazing are these old school Adidas Superstar sneakers? I recently bought a pair for my husband at his request and it was love at first sight for me. All the awesome 80’s hip hop memories came flooding back, so I had to get a pair for myself. The shell toes and thick laces just kill me, these sneakers are straight-up legit.

I love a good tomboy look and all of the classic pieces you see here can easily pair with a lot of my clothes in my closet.

I plan on doing a follow-up on my recent J.Crew purchase blog post (find it here) later today since the current online 30% off promo SCORE expires tonight, so check back if you want some reviews.

Happy Friday! xx
