This outfit features 2 of my favorite things:  scallops and ankle boots.  First, the ankle boots.  I've been looking for a good pair of black ankle boots that I can wear with shorts and ankle jeans.  For me, this means that the boots must slope down in the front {I need all the leg elongation I can get}!  I noticed these at Bakers a couple weeks ago and lucky for me Bakers had a sale on them just 2 days later.  I love that these boots are kinda dressy and kinda rocker at the same time -- that means double-duty on both weekdays and weekends!   

As for my jacket, H&M is hitting it hard this fall with the scallops and I'm a sucker every time.  I first saw this jacket on Jen and absolutely adored it!  Initially I had wished that the light gray wool coloring in the body was also in the arms, but after trying it on, I'm actually quite happy with the black material as it gives the sleeves a nice slim fit rather than adding bulk.  This jacket is on the more expensive side ($70 but 20% off coupon with newsletter subscription), but even while trying it on in front of the mirror at the store, I had 2 different people come up and say that they loved the jacket {followed by where did I find it, lol}.  In the end, I caved and decided to bring it home with me to see about how it would work with my existing closet.  So far, I think it's a keeper!

And since there was 1 more size 2 jacket in the store along with this one, I purchased them both in case any of my readers were interested in it (tag info here).  If so, let me know. SOLD!  :)

I agree. Even after the 20% off coupon it's still a bit much. It is very nice wool though and it'll definitely keep me warm without looking too bulky!

Your outfits are just getting better and better!  I love how FUN and carefree this look is.  That scalloped jacket from H&M is a fine choice!  What pulls this look together are those fantastic booties!  Rock on girl!

Hot Hot Hot. Kileen you look like you are in a magazine shoot in these photos and outfit. Love the scaled jacket to, but I am a little bigger than a size 2 :-(
Cheers,

I love the jacket! I never thought I'd wear ankle boots either, thought they'd cut off my already short enough legs! But  you're right, you just have to look for the right cut and style!

That jacket is great!I love the cut and the scalloping.

i only walked for about 2 hours at a time yesterday in these boots so I'm not sure about all day...but after 2-hours my feet were still happy!

Courtney said... [Reply]

You are SUCH a darling! I wish I was a size 2. Haha.

This jacket is definitely amazing. Perfect. I hope there's something similar I can snag somewhere. :)

I also think you styled it flawlessly. You are a queen!

Kileen said... [Reply]

thanks! it's yet another H&M scalloped item... i'm excited to hear that you were able to pick up the scalloped shorts!

In LOVE with that scalloped jacket! The detailing makes it look like it's definitely more expensive than your run-of-the-mill H&M (although I guess the pricetag is also higher than your run-of-the-mill H&M!). 

Cecilia Oviedo said... [Reply]

don't think I've ever seen a blazer with scallops is so cute! Love the screen tee very casual chic!

I know $56 is a bit hard to swallow for H&M, but the jacket looks so luxurious! Hopefully the material and worksmanship is worth the $. Lovely outfit, Kileen!

Kileen said... [Reply]

No complaints from me so far! I'll have to keep wearing it and see how it holds up. *fingers crossed*

LOVE both the booties and the jacket- absolutely amazing. Quick question- how are the booties in terms of comfort? Because if they're not bad, I might just have to get some :) Bummed that I didn't see this post in time to email you about the size 2 jacket, but glad someone else got it- that was really nice of you to do.

These boots are pretty comfortable! I wore them without socks or any sort of padding and walked around yesterday for 2 hours without any problem. I think I'm gonna end up putting some forefoot cushions (I get these from CVS http://www.cvs.com/CVSApp/catalog/shop_product_detail.jsp?filterBy=&skuId=132373&productId=132373&navAction=jump&navCount=3) just to make it a little nicer for my feet.

and there are still small sizes left in this boot on Bakers website (on sale and with free shipping too!). :)

This outfit is very different of what I'm used to seeing you wear Kileen, but it's fabulous! You manage to pull off so many different styles. Good job!

thanks! i like mixing it up on weekends sometimes. :)

Catherine said... [Reply]

I love those shorts!! And you've just proved that anyone can wear ankle boots (because they actually make you look taller!). I have so many friends who swear they can't wear them because they think they'll look shorter. Wrong! Although I guess it's all how you style them. :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

for sure!! the ankle boots that slope downwards in teh front actually help in elongating the leg. i love ankle boots!

SkippySays said... [Reply]

Awesome thanks for the info Kileen!
