This one’s for my aunt. I am blessed with the most encouraging and loving family; they have been so wonderful throughout this entire experience and this blog wouldn’t have been possible without them. I fell in love with this jacket but having been shopping all day, it was totally outside my budget. My aunt bought it and told me one thing, “Put it on the blog”. So here we are.
Introducing: The Sleeveless Jacket
These have been around for a while now and I have been itching to get my hands on one. I can already see a future closet full of these! The classic cut of these jackets look super sophisticated, worn either casual or dressed up. When you want your cut-out jeans and sloppy t-shirts to look classy . . . add a jacket; A baggy dress needs a pick-me-up? Add a jacket. You get the idea.
Stores right from Zara to Mango are full of them at the moment, so I’m sure you’ll find the one that has your name written all over it. The one I am wearing is from Miss Selfridge, I chose this because solid color ones have been all over the place, and I felt the stripes make it edgier but formal at the same time. I dressed it up with my cut-out jeans, a simple black cami with lace trims, and oxfords. As for the jewelry, I wanted it super-super-simple yet sophisticated to complement the attire, and so I opted for a simple long necklace, a watch and my favorite ear jacket studs.
