Lookbook: Plaids and Stripes

IMG_8431IMG_8434
What I'm Wearing
Blazer: Rag and Bone
Top: Aritzia
Jeans: Madewell
Shoes: Dior

You saw a glimpse of this outfit from my last week in photos post.  I actually started the day in this outfit and as the day wore on and we needed to do more errands, I went home and changed into skinny jeans and flats so I could be super zippy.  I walk pretty fast in heels but when I'm on flats I walk so fast that sometimes my husband has to ask me to slow down because he can't keep up.  haha!  I like to get stuff done fast so when I'm running errands I'm always in a hurry!

Also, if you got some weird looking posts from me in your reader, it's because I was testing out a new comment system last night.  I know a lot of people use Disqus but I've also heard that people have had multiple problems with it, so I did some research and I'm trying out IntenseDebate as it seemed to have the best reviews for Blogger blogs.  It will be so much easier for me to reply to your comments (they will be threaded) and it should be easy for you to comment as you can login with your facebook, twitter or just your name/email/website and several other options.  Also, no crazy captcha phrases as it uses the spam filter, Akismet.  I'll test it out for a little while and see how I like it and how you guys like it - please let me know if you do or don't as I'm doing this for you guys to hopefully make it easier to comment and get answers to your questions so your feedback is really important!  Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: HA!  I guess the new commenting system made the decision for me because I left this morning and it was working and I got several comments and then came back to my computer this afternoon and the new commenting system + the comments from this morning are all gone!  Silly thing.  Don't know what the heck happened as I haven't even touched my blog all day long.  Oh well!  At least we know and if you guys are interested in using this comment system, it doesn't seem like the best choice.

Also, if you haven't checked out my latest post on the Smarter blog come see my latest favorite nail polish trend!

Rag & Bone Idaho Jacket - on sale!

This jacket doesn't look so cute online but I loved the pattern mixing in the jacket with the stripes on the outside and the plaid on the inside so I took a chance and when I got it and put it on, I loved it.  Everything from Rag & Bone fits me like a dream.  I love their blazers and jeans.  (Sizing wise, it is true to size, I'm wearing an XS) Also check out this adorable red plaid 'Girlfriend' blazer!

Tory Burch "Keaton" Pima Cotton Striped Tee
Totally into the striped shirts.  I need more!  This Tory Burch one is on sale for a good price, thinking about getting it. Or the MICHAEL Michael Kors Striped Tie-Hem Top is so perfectly summery casual. Or you can't beat this striped top from Target for $14.99.

Madewell Vintage Rocker Jeans In Eclipse Wash
Skinny jeans dominate my wardrobe but I'm finally integrating flares into the mix!  I love these high waisted ones.
Dior 'Miss Dior' Peep Toe Pump

I have these in red and blue and I can say that they are at the top of my list of favorite shoes.  Right now they only have them available in nude or black which I totally recommend if you are looking for a good basic pump.  I'm hoping they bring back more fun colors too!

I love these red quilted Dior pumps as well.  The Vince Camuto Renees Pump is super similar, even the red patent is almost the same and under $100.

  1. I love the look of this outfit- casual yet with a splash of style. Striped tees are definitely the hitmaker of this spring season it seems and it looks great with the red blazer and Dior shoes. Who doesn't love Dior? Thanks for sharing Tiffany!!

  6. Haha, I was going to check out the comment system but I guess I don't have to anymore.

    Anyway, just wanted to say that I'm loving your makeup in this post! :) And so funny that you walk too fast when you're in flats :) I can totally see that!

  7. cute outfit! the blazer looks way better on you than in the shop's photo. it's definitely one of those pieces that are questionable and you'd probably walk by in the store but then when you try it on, it's fantastic!

  10. Great outfit Tiff! Love the interesting color of the blazer. I'm typically a flats or sandals gal myself so I know what you mean by running on fast speed. Gotta just make the hubbies chase after us - it shouldn't stop after they get married! lol!

  11. I may be bias, but you are the only petite Asian who looks extremely nice in skinny jean with heel. Must be your high quality jeans and luxurious CL heels. Nay! It's the whole outfit choices. Others can copy your look, rest assured, none come close.
    I also respect the fact that you don't attempt the sultry look. Very appropriate. Thumb up from me.....

  12. Oops! I don't want to offend anyone. Let me correct myself. Tiff is "my favorite" Asian petite style blogger who can rock skinny jean with CL heels in the most tasteful way.
    Solely my personal opinion..
    You are the best on my list.
