Like A Lyon

I start my days with the same routine: Rise at 7:30am and head straight to the studio for coffee & morning news. My usual stops are WWD, CNN, Good Morning America on my television and a quick browse on Pinterest.

I came across a “pin” which lead me to a video of Garance Doré interviewing my favorite, Jenna Lyons. I simply adore Jenna {and Garance}, who inspired todays outfit. A simple, tailored, menswear inspired look that makes me want to live in New York {and I pulled my hair back like Jenna!}. But let’s be honest, we all know I wouldn’t be able to stand the cold {poor NY is getting slammed with snow right now}. So, like my favorite menswear inspired outfit, I will visit my favorite city from time to time in hopes that a piece of it will always stick with me wherever I go.

  • My daily routine looks strikingly similar, except I usually start between 6 and 6:30am…. Gotta check out that interview… Love Jenna Lyons too! Love the neck of that sweater! Would be prefer here today in NYC!!! Hercules (the snow storm) is taking over!!!

    Jenna Lyons is my idol, and I wear the ankle Minnie pant to work at least 3 days a week…black, navy and hunter green! On a different note, I am going to Paris with my 11 year old daughter next week…any thoughts on what to wear to be warm and stylish? And your favorite neighborhoods to shop? Happy New Year!

  • IRMA

    I love your outfits and the way you speak in every post!

  • As a New Yorker I agree with not being able to handle the cold, especially looking out my window this morning at the piles of snow. I’ve become a regular reader of your blog and find myself drawn more and more to the California coast! So jealous of your living conditions today!!

  • First off, is that a laptop case inside the tote? Because that should be noted below too, it’s so cute! Also, the tote is stunning! I bought a MK one right before grad school and now it’s all used so I’m definitely on the hunt for another one and preferably all leather.

  • Those loafers are amazing! Love this take on the menswear look.

  • I LOVE menswear inspired ensembles – so chic!


  • Lovely look! That turtleneck looks so cozy. You sure know how to rock the menswear! 🙂

  • this sweater is gorgeous!

    those loafers are everything.

  • Jenna Lyons always gets it right…and I’m a sucker for a good menswear look. Well done!

  • You have nailed the Jenna Lyons look! Love that tote and those glasses look great on you!

    This is such a put together but cozy looking outfit I especially love the sweater!

  • Kim

    Your look is so versatile, I love how you switch your fashion up and style each look so effortlessly. This outfit is cute, I adore the loafers and tote!


  • I love the whole look. Nothing feels better then taking a break from feminine to look more masculine for the day, I think. I love the sweater and bag for sure!

  • I didn’t even have to read your inspiration as I immediately knew that you were trying to capture Jenna Lyon’s style! You did it fabulously and oh I love NYC too, but not sure if I could live there during winter!

  • Great menswear look! Love those loafers!

    x abigail, the fabulous life of a natural disaster

  • lovely outfit! happy new year!

  • love the long coat & loafers together! you pull this off effortlessly! x

  • NYC is a freezing cold mess right now! Cali life is looking pretty good right about now 🙂

    I LOVEEEE that extra bit of detail in layering a striped tee under a thick turtleneck knit! I’ve been itching to wear a new pair of oxfords, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen in these frigid temps in NYC 🙁

  • Jen

    Love this look on you and would wear this in a heartbeat!

    Most of my outfits have been menswear inspired since fall with a dress or skirt thrown in to break it up occasionally.

    I love loafers sans socks but it’s way too cold to pull this off in chilly Toronto. I’ve been forced to wear boots and my oxfords are looking pretty lonely these days!

    Keep up the great work!

  • Jen

    Hi Jacey,

    If you don’t mind sharing, what size are you wearing in the Zara coat? I’ve been waiting for this coat to go on sale and noticed they have the sizes available online. I’m usually a size 2 or 4 and I’m trying to decide between a XS or S. I want to make sure it fits well in the shoulder area, but their size chart only includes chest, waist and hips. HELP!

    Thanks! 🙂

  • Went with just your wedding band too? More menswear, but I don’t think I could go without my engagement ring+wedding band for a normal day outside of the house! Love the whole look on you.

  • Angela

    I thought you were a New Yorker. 🙂

  • amazing!

    Dress To Cook

  • Love this look and great coat!

  • Love this menswear look, especially the chunky knit and loafers. So great to hear about the inspiration behind it.

  • Love this Celine! So simple but still makes a statement. The whole outfit is stellar! Masculine with feminine twist!
