Closets I Love – Jordana Brewster

Here's the thing about me and fashion: I love it, but I in no way consider myself a "fashionista." The looks that I gravitate toward the most are, in fact, ones that involve simple, comfortable pieces that would serve me well in my unexceptional life as mom. I like things that are easy to put on and take off, things that wash well, and things that, beyond all else, feel good.

Which is exactly what actress Jordana Brewster looks to be wearing here.

But there's a twist: The mustard-colored cut-offs, pairing a long sleeve button down with shorts...it's unconventional, but it works. (What you don't see here is that she finishes the look with a pair of tan Birkenstock Gizeh sandals.) But the accessories -- the crossbody Hermes Eveylene bag, matching belt, and classic black shades all conspire to give polish to an otherwise very basic ensemble.

Here are two more hits from Jordana:

Apparently, Jordana isn't one of those wear-it-only-once celebrities because she has been getting some mileage out of that crossbody bag -- and that shirt appears to be the same one she's wearing in the first photo. I really like the espadrilles and the long, flowing skirt.

Now, Mama really digs this look here: A simple sheath dress, nude sandals and a classic black leather tote. Perfection. (I even like her eyewear, although that's one component of this look that I'd probably pass on.


About Closets I Love: I could spend hours (and have) on the Web searching for celebrity candid photos, which inspire me to create new looks from clothes I may already own. In this series The Look, I share some of my favorite celebrity photos.)

If you've enjoyed this post, throw this mama a "like" on Facebook, will ya? Thanks.

  1. Hi Courtney - I could spend a day in her closet! Which reminds me... I need to go through mine for the change in seasons. Although it's like 95 degrees here in DC today. Maybe next week. Oh yeah... clothes... coveting! Hugs, Holly

    1. Hey, there! Ugh. I feel you. Although autumn is my most fave time of the year -- our climate is much like yours: completely unpredictable, which makes dressing comfortably (and stylishly) a challenge. Like today: I *should* probably wear my rainboots to playgroup with Scotty...but oh how my Tory Burch flats are calling my name! lol

      Have a super day, my friend! And thank you for commenting. <3

    1. There you go, again, Susie. Making me feel all warm and fuzzy in a way that only you can. But, alas, my style can use some work. I'm not too proud to admit it. ;-)

      Jordana was in the Fast & the Furious movies (which I only saw the first one) and I think she's currently in the new Dallas drama (inspired by the one in the 80s) which (I think) airs on TNT. I wanted to try to get into it, but, alas, have not. :-(

      I hope you had a fantastic Labor Day, Susie!

      Labor Day was great but too short!

    1. My thoughts exactly. She NEVER looks like she's trying too hard...or at all, for that matter...
