IONA: Casual Fridays

Day 2 means look 2 from one of my favorite stores in Madison, Iona! This monochrome look is perfect for almost any occasion. Pair it with pumps for casual Friday, or dinner at your fave restaurant. Or, throw on your best pair of beaten up sneakers for a day of errands. One thing that's a must for me is comfort. If I'm not going to feel comfortable in it, I don't want to wear it. (there are very few exceptions to this rule) No problem here. I'm wearing the softest, best fitting Bobby Top by Xirena. I loved it so much that it is now hanging in my closet. It comes in 3 colors, so don't worry, there's one for you too!

This ALC CL Jacket is to die for. Not only does it havea hint of stretch that makes this light fabric lay perfectlybut it has leather detail... You understand now, right? The mix of leather, pony hair and suede in this stunning Jéróme Dreyfuss cross body bag gives this monochrome outfit (or any outfit for that matter) a great little kick! I love turning your outfit up with cool accessories and this bag hits the nail on the head.

As long as we were on the topic of comfort, let me talk about this pair of Mothers. The perfect rise, the right amount of stretch, simple butt pockets, and the perfect shade of grey. Jeans that I love aren't easy for me to find,but I love The Looker Jean in Rebels and Lovers. Thanks to the lovelies at Iona, they are now a part of my wardrobe and I think I've worn them every day since I brought them home. Shhhh... don't tell

Last but certainly not least, this super cozy Helmut Lang Lux Jersey Hat goes with practically everything and warms up this outfit perfectly. I'm a sucker for warm beanies... my collection is much too large. If you're in need of a(nother) winter beanie, look no further. I say it's justifiable when you live in Wisconsin.
