What We Wore: Brights!

outfit post brights

On Kate: Target dress (similar), J.Crew shirt (similar), Hue tights (similar), Steve Madden boots (similar), Target earrings (similar)

On Jeanne: Thakoon Addition jacket (similar), Nick & Zoe shirt (similar), J.Crew pants (similar), Louise et Cie shoes, Michael Kors necklace (similar)


Jeanne says: I bought this jacket last year and grew to love its saturated colors and tuxedo-esque design in the back. Ultimately it seems more like a sweater than a jacket and, like many jackets, looked better closed (with a pin) than left open. I love it with my silk/wool polka dot pants and blue top. All this color makes me SO happy!

Kate’s outfit is just plain audacious. Her yellow lace dress — which we already saw in the summer — is re-purposed into a jumper with a fuchsia blouse. I would have been much more conservative here and maybe would have paired it with a black turtleneck, black tights, and maybe a belt. But Kate looks young and hip and age-appropriate. The lesson here is to be creative when you have a versatile dress like this and, like Kate, throw color caution to the winds!


Kate says: Here’s another outfit I was a little nervous walking out the door in — so bright! But I got tons of compliments that reminded me to follow my instincts. I love this purple and yellow together, and tried to keep the rest simple: black right, boots, and simple hoop earrings. Any summery dress can be turned into a jumper like this, and you can tone it down a bit with a chambray shirt if need be!

When Mom first bought this jacket, I thought maybe she had lost her mind. But she’s made so many cute outfits with it! I think she is much more comfortable with this earthy mix of brown and orange colors than I am, which is made obvious by her confidence pairing this jacket with a bright blue shirt and polka dot pants! She looks quirky but very professional. Oh, and I would love to steal her shoes! They’ll be next on my list…

    Wow, I absolutely adore Jeanne’s outfit! I love the idea of your blog. Until having read the title that says mother-daughter, I was wondering what kind of relation you were in – sisters, best friends… (I know how cheesy that sounds but it is true haha)
