Jacci makes it cold-weather friendly by layering it over a basic long sleeve t-shirt, then adding tall boots and a denim jacket. She then dresses the whole look up a bit with a gorgeous statement necklace. I'm LOVING the rolled sleeves - perfection.
If it's as as cold as it looks in the pic, I think the whole outfit (denim jacket included) would also look amazing layered under a parka.
Want a better pic of the dress & t-shirt? Yes, of course you do:
I also love the hair tie around her wrist - a girl after my own heart!!
This outfit would be so easy to re-create. Bust out some summer dresses (Jacci actually informed us that this was her beach coverup from last year - brilliant!!), throw them over leggings and long sleeve tee, add your tall boots and statement necklace. Or a cool scarf.
I just remembered where I had seen the parka-over-denim jacket idea. Refinery 29 pulled it from a Net-a-Porter lookbook:
Wouldn't a parka totally work with Jacci's outfit? And oooo...Jacci, I think layering a striped tee under the dress would also be a nice touch! And still very much a part of "classic" style! Especially when the sleeves are rolled over the denim, as in the first pic.
Jacci also has a fashion blog, In Search of Chic, where she's been posting her daily outfits as part of a 30-for-30 remix challenge (30 pieces of clothing, 30 outfits). As someone who also feels a bit silly when photographed, her post, Only Incredibly Dorky People Do This totally cracked me up.
Jacci, you rock. Thank you SO much for sending in your outfit pictures!!
ps. Lest you forget, I wanted to mention (again) that we'd so appreciate your vote for best fashion blog in the 2011 Bloggies...
