Navy + Cognac // Brunch at Gaslight Boston

Gaslight Boston brunch outfit
Burberry trench coat, Goyard St. Louis tote bag, similar navy pumps

For my second look with Macy's Maison Jules (see first one here), I'm sharing this easy ensemble and taking you guys inside Gaslight, one of our favorite French brasseries in Boston. They have the yummiest poached egg dishes for brunch - Nick and I usually fight over the eggs Vigneronne with a red wine, ham and mushroom sauce. I also love the rustic decor at the bar area where we usually sit.

There's something about navy with cognac brown always feels classic to me, even in trendier materials like faux leather...

I mentioned in my last post that Maison Jules ran surprisingly small and several pieces fit me off-the-rack. This cotton blazer is very shrunken-fit and cropped in length (looking at these photos, perhaps too much so for me after being dried in a machine dryer). The skirt is medium-weight faux-leather and fully lined with pockets, and an elasticized waistband that can accommodate a small range of sizes. Measurements of the skirt: 12" across waist when un-stretched that stretches up to about 13.5" across, and 18" length.

  2. I've never thought of combining those two colours! You've given me some inspiration to wear more than monochrome outfits.

  6. Love this pairing! What is a brasserie? There is a restaurant in my town that I love with that in its name, and I've always wondered what it really means.

    1. Brasserie is the French word for brewery - besides the place where beer is brewed, it also refers to a casual restaurant which serves beer and un-fancy food, like hot dogs and sandwiches. In Quebec, where I live, women were not allowed into taverns until the 1980s, so some restaurateurs opened restaurants which served the same kind of fare as taverns (i.e. beer and hearty, simple food) but were called brasseries instead of taverns so that they could cater to both genders.

  7. Jean, you usually nail it, but I think that jacket is a "miss." It looks wrinkled and not elegant.

  10. Love the color combo! I have a wool blazer that is sorta like that, but my sleeves a tiny bit too long, is there any tutorial you might suggest for a DIY fix on sleeves being too long?
    Thanks! -- Evelyn

  11. I like their stuff, but it doesn't seem to be available at any Macy's within 100 miles of me! I hope it spreads to more locations soon.

  15. You look gorgeous per usual! Love the pairings. What do you do/what tools do you use to get the large curls in your hair? Love the look!

  16. Does your faux leather skirt get wrinkled easily after you are sitting down for a while? You can't really iron it either right? I have an Ann Taylor blouse that has a stripe of faux leather and it came with a folded wrinkle on it when they shipped it to me. No matter how I hang it or even steam it, and it's been a year since I got it, the wrinkle still doesn't go away...

  19. I love Gaslight - the almond and banana crepes are to die for! Also, you're so brave to stick the blazer in the dryer. I'd be paranoid it would warp the shape in some way, but yours still looks great!

  21. What a classy look! I have so many neutral colored skirts that I'm thinking of switching it up a bit with different colors. The cognac skirt really does pop with the navy blazer. Looking amazing as always!
