Spun Around

by jennine on October 5, 2009


I’ve been bad… I haven’t been showing you the clothes I wear ALL THE TIME. The clothes I wear repeatedly throughout the week, and don’t show them to you because I think you think you’ve seen it all before. The clothes that always make it back into the laundry bin, the clothes that get first wear the day after laundry day. I don’t know why it is the clothes I always wear don’t get the most attention on this blog. It’s like not telling the ones closest to how much they matter.

Since I’ve done a barter with SPUN organic clothing a month back, and to tell the truth, I’ve practically been living in the pieced got on my end of the exchange, the dress worn here, the boatneck top, and well, a few tanks,.  They’re not statement pieces, but that’s not what they are about… they are basics that hold my wardrobe together… the most important part! Here I’m wearing the cowl neck dress that has just the right amount of stretch, just the right length I can just about wear it with anything. As the temperatures drop, I’ve been more an more prone to layering, which is where this dress really shines.

Turtleneck dress from SPUN • Silk Skirt by Walter • Vintage lace shirt worn backwards • Topshop leggings • Husband’s belt • Zipper cuff from Hurricane Boutique • Boots from Aldo.

Spread the Love!

I love all the layers - especially during this transitional season. I’m a fan of my SPUN item too - the tank. I need to get some more!

The layering is very cool indeed, I wouldn’t worry about it - I understand why you wouldn’t want to post similar looks. I am still so happy to see more outfit posts from you, always inspiring. :_)

Michelle October 5, 2009 at 11:10 pm

I love the layering! Like everyone else here. It looks so great as a whole, you’d never guess that a basic cowl neck dress was the base.

Alexandra October 6, 2009 at 12:34 am

You pretty much just single-handedly sold me one of those Spun pieces! What a great outfit. I love every individual piece of it, but the way you put it all together is really special.

yeah, I have a wardrobe full of clothes yet i still have the same few things that I wear constantly! they aren’t the most glamorous things but they are the most comfy, cosy versatile pieces. I love how good you are at layering, its starting to get cold now and I must get back into it soon! I especially love the skirt and the boots. :)

Sal October 6, 2009 at 6:47 am

Amazing layers, Jennine! One of the things I love about fall and winter dressing is that it gives us the opportunity to really pile on the layers - play with texture, proportion, bulk, and all those things that our summer frocks and sandals don’t even dip into.

I adore this look. You look amazing. those leggings are to die for. I think that you were wearing them or something similar when I met you in NY..I admired them then and I’m lusting after them now. I love the layered look here.

❤eclectica…haha thanks!
❤wendy…oh, i’m sure you don’t!
❤dreamsequins…oh yes, spun is a great line, i simply love it.
❤enc…well you may not need it as much in LA…it’s just not cold enough there to sport layers, i know!
❤michelle…oh yes, well it’s because i usually have some form of turtleneck dress as a base during these colder months.
❤alexandra…ooh sweet!
❤missmilki..exactly, i don’t know what that’s about, the most loved clothes are more often then more subtly beautiful
❤sal…so true, it’s exactly why i left my home of sunny southern california.. winter accessories.
❤lani..oh thank you!
❤chessa…good memory! i wore the leggings to the dress up soiree!
❤kate…thanks! ahh fall in san diego, probably one of the best times, not too hot, and no june gloom.

Jennine-you look so great in these pics-great photos! I love SPUN too, and wear my boatneck top multiple times a week-I need to get more!

Sara October 16, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Thanks Jennine for including the SPUN cowl neck dress in your amazing outfit! You have an incredible eye for fashion and seem to naturally know which pieces work together…even if they don’t seem like they would. I am honored to consider you a fan of SPUN and appreciate your continued support! Can’t wait to finally meet you! xoxo, Sara :)

I love those leggings! I totally get it why you wear them all the time and end up in the laundry bin over and over!
