Daylight: my favourite white tee with a blazer-style jacket and distressed boyfriend jeans

Woohoo – daylight savings time is officially here!!  I hope my dear readers managed to “spring ahead” without too much difficulty??  There’s always a whole lot of collective moaning and groaning over that hour we miss when the switch is made from standard time; but for me it’s so worthwhile for the extra hour of evening sunlight we instantly gain…even though we’re back to darker mornings for another few weeks.  I’ve never been much of a morning person anyways – getting up is a challenge whether the sun is shining or not!!

That being said, once I was up today (and after my non-negotiable, scorching-hot shower!) figuring out what to wear was easy-peasy.  There’s no better proof I’m feeling those “summer is coming” vibes than this – my favourite white tee is making an appearance again!!  Not that I don’t do white in the winter, of course…but a white t-shirt somehow seems like it needs warmish weather to be appropriate in a way that a black t-shirt, for example, doesn’t.

How crazy is it that I once couldn’t imagine a blazer-style jacket being part of my wardrobe arsenal?!  I’ve never been a part of the corporate world, so I was convinced that anything that skewed “suit” was simply not for me; now I’m adoring the way this kind of jacket upgrades my seriously distressed boyfriend jeans from I’m-just-hanging-around-at-home to street-legit.

And I sure hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing my silver platform boots yet!!  They’ve gone from being just a fun footwear option to serious go-to’s that magically zshuzsh up every outfit I pair them with.  I could have worn my stand-by black booties this afternoon instead – I really liked that combo, too – but with spring officially only a few weeks away, can you blame me for wanting to add a little extra sparkle to my step?!

    Could never get sick of these silver boots! So clever to use them as a staple. Love your jacket. I am also in a white T, jeans, jacket and platform boots today (black ones though, pity), in anticipation of Spring!! Lise

      I own several pairs of black boots, dear Lise…and I love ’em all. But I have to admit, these silver ones are kind of rocking my world right now!! 😁

    That jacket is adorable. Nothing wrong with sticking a little corporate in with the silver boots.

    I totally get what you mean about white t-shirts. In fact, I wore my favorite one for the first time in months just a few days ago. I like the cut of yours—good neckline.

    I love the whole look, of course.

      I have a few crewneck t-shirts in my collection, dearest Linda…but v-necks are just SO flattering, am I right?! 👍

        I like that particular v-neck—a wide v. Definitely flattering.
