what Landis wore - one evening out in july

going to dinner with friends . . .
always a good excuse to pull out the good stuff,
and feel like a grown-up.

i think american culture overall is always swinging back and forth on the issue
of casual v. dressy,
and growing up with a strong willed mother
(ex-beauty queen.  multi-lingual.  artist.  flirt.  picture it.)
we were the family that wore blazers when we flew to london,
and jeans weren't in the closet until we were ten.

so going out to eat?

 
an old pair of marc jacobs wide legged chocolate trousers,
a CIN2 gray v-neck tee,
lanvin suede and patent trainers,
and the new jil sander blazer (1400. on sale for 249.)
love this look.  very "me".  
for me, this is casual, comfortable, and a little powerful.
and i really love the details on the blazer.
it's the palest blue, and the stitching is just perfect.
