Jacket Required

Hi kiddies,

It’s been a hot minute and I DO apologize for the crickets around here. Coming down with my second bug of the cold & flu season threw me for a loop. So after some much needed recuperation, along with a social media sabbatical I’m getting back into the swing of things. One way to do that is by putting on this killer jacket. Isn’t is awesome?

A sequin jacket somehow conjures images of the TV show Dynasty for me. Now I don’t think the rest of this outfit resembles anything from the show but that’s the first visual I always get. Don’t ask me to explain the randomness that is my brain; I don’t get it either. I also have at least one other sequin jacket so professing I’m not a fan isn’t possible. IMG 1100 960x640  Jacket RequiredIMG 1150 960x640  Jacket RequiredIMG 1109 960x587  Jacket Required

I picked up this jacket from H&M when my friends Emily and Jonna were in town a few months back (you may remember this post about their visit). The pile of clothes taking up space in my arms was down right ridiculous but I sauntered out of there with just 2 items I fell in love with.

Allowing this jacket to take the spotlight I wore it with more basic items. These favorite boyfriend jeans were a perfect option along with a casual tee to give a “I care, but not too much” overall feel hehe. Mixed metal for jewelry choices, a gold toed heel and a clutch raided from mom rounded out my pairings.

I wore this while hanging with old chums over the holidays but it would easily transition to all sorts of occasions. Where would you wear this? Do you like pairing dressier items with more casual pieces? Mashups like this are a favorite of mine and a way to get more mileage from special pieces in your closet. So weigh in… Is this Jacket Required?

    5. […] deal leather skirt when I saw it. It feels like butter and was the other purchase I mentioned in this previous post. Have you fallen for a leather skirt […]
