2.4.10: Wearing Today with IRL Pics

Wearing Today 2.4.10: Early morning Physical Therapy for my 4 year-old, errands, and then Homeschool Co-op in the afternoon.

2.4.10
2.4.10 by FFM featuring J Brand jeans

The Outfit:
  • Gap *The Perfect Khaki Blazer, similar here (in beechwood).
  • J.Crew Vintage Bateau Top in Pale Camel, similar here (in different colors). I L.O.V.E. this top! I am wearing the XSmall, which is my *normal* size in J.Crew tees. It is a bit long, as I have shown in the 3rd pic above where I have it untucked, but it can be tucked in easily enough (like I'm wearing it today). The fabric feels substantial, not to mention comfortable on the body, and the tee is not sheer, as is the issue with so many others at J.Crew.
  • J.Crew Wide Leg Trouser Jeans from the Crewlet, similar here and here.
  • Anthropologie Bauble Bath Bracelet, similar here.
  • J.Crew Patent Skinny Belt in Almond, similar here (in color Champagne).
  • Monet Gold Hoop Earrings from Macy's (not sold online), similar here and here.
  • J.Crew Crystal Chain Necklace, similar here and here (in gold).
  • Forever 21 Long Faux Pearl Strand doubled around my neck, similar here and here.
  • J.Crew Pearl Ring, similar here and here
  • Gold Rim Aviator Sunglasses purchased from Endless.com, similar here and here.
  • Madison Brand Suede *Billy* Boots purchased at Belk, similar here and here (in chestnut).
  • Coach Large Ergo Bag in British Tan Vachetta Leather, similar here and here.
The following are pics of the Vintage Bateau Top in Dark Pewter (requested by sweetsy). :) In the first pic the top is placed next to dark pewter (upper left) and black (upper right) to help show the color. The second pic is of course a close up.

Have a beautiful and blessed day!

  7. I may not comment as much, but everytime I see your outfits or read your blog, I always think to myself, "FFM is one classy, put-together lady." :) And like Janna said, it isn't always about the brand or the price, it's about how you carry yourself. ;)

    Now that I've seen you and dinagideon rock that Bateau top, I may just have to grab me one o' those! ;)

    I received my bateau top yesterday and agree it's a keeper. I like the fit alot; I need a little more "lean and loose" in my wardrobe. :)

  24. Can I ask you a HUGE favor and will you do a IRL close-up of the grey version of this shirt?? Even a photo of the top not on your body would be extremely helpful. This thing is selling out like hot-cakes. TIA!!
