Get the look: surplus jacket and wide-leg white jeans

It's been awhile since I've done a get the look post, but while I've been sleeping on it, you guys have been pinning up a storm—and this month's most-pinned look from my Outfit ideas for ageless style Pinterest board feels just in time for summer in San Francisco. And by that, I mean it's lighter-colored and incorporates sandals, but also layers, because fog. I'm so excited about this look, I kind of want to get it for myself, so here's how I'd do it.

You guys have probably heard me rhapsodize about my J.Crew surplus jacket, but since Madewell has pretty much eclipsed J.Crew in terms of timeliness and classic-ness, their Passage jacket is pretty much a safe bet for this look, and forever.

The woman in the photo is wearing an oatmeal-heather tee, which feels very J.Crew circa 1994, but since that's not an option, this Gap featherweight tee will do—I love the fact that it has a subtle stripe to it, and its long sleeves will hold up in office air-conditioning.

Now that I've found the perfect pair of white jeans, I've fixed my sights on a pair of wide-leg white jeans, and I'm thinking you can't go wrong with these Madewell wide-leg crop jeans.

When I first saw this woman's shoes, I was equally in love and intimidated that I'd never find a close-enough pair, but lo and behold, I think these 27 Edit Emma toe loop sandals are a pretty good approximation (and they look super-comfy too).

Finally, these Super by Retrosuperfuture Arca sunglasses are a little on the splurgy side, but I really like the rimless shape, and while they're not exactly what this woman is wearing (hers are a little more subtle), they're still super fun.
