Hey everyone! Have you ever slipped your arm into a jacket and realized you had found the one? Let me tell you, it doesn’t happen that often, but I definitely felt that when I tried this jacket on.
I’ve been looking for a jean jacket for several years now. Either they’re tight in the arms, or don’t have much stretch to move in, or they’re cropped too short, etc, etc, etc. Yes, I do try a lot of clothing items on (it’s my job now!) so I can tell right away if something is going to fit or not, just by putting one arm in the sleeve. When I put my arm in this sleeve, I just let out a long ahhhhhhh!
It even has enough stretch to button if I ever desired to do such a thing! It’s from the Liz Claiborne brand from JC Penney and available in a darker blue here, light blue here, tall here and crazy on sale now.
I decided to mix this outfit up with dressy items and casual items. This skirt is such a fun skirt but because it has the glitter it can be overwhelming for everyday wear. I thought I could tone it down a bit with the jean jacket and at the same time dress up the jacket. The skirt is a couple of years old from White House Black Market and though looks structured, has a nice waistband that fits and doesn’t slide down. I think I will stop in there soon and check out some newer versions. Stay tuned!
A jean jacket is a classic. It’s like tall boots. I think they’re here to stay and I have already worn this jacket a couple of times this week with our mild February weather, and I still think it’s “the one”!
Just a quick reminder about the invitation to my blog birthday party for all you ladies. This weekend would be a good opportunity to snap a picture in the mirror or ask a nearby relative to take a quick one. Right now it’s looking like a soiree rather than a party but I’m looking forward to all of your RSVP’s to be rolling in! You do have some time (March 18) so I’ll be sure to remind you a couple more times! Have a wonderful weekend!
Linking up with these ladies with JoLynne Shane!
