Winter still seems to be hanging around in these parts. While Easter Sunday is supposed to bring some spring temperatures, Easter Eve was still below freezing. My family attended early morning Mass and I quickly realized I needed to add on some Easter layers to my outfit. Lightened up slightly from my typical dark neutrals from winter, I wore a dusty rose/mauve-colored silk blouse under my white leather moto vest and light grey wool peacoat. I topped it off with a scarf to cover my neck and I was good to go.
When I spotted this blue suede jacket on Kelly, my eyes nearly popped out of my head. The color is insanely beautiful and unique for a suede jacket. And yet being navy blue, still so versatile. I tried for days to resist buying it, but I eventually gave in. And do I have any regrets? Definitely not!
I opted for a size Small, using Kelly as a point of reference. She if quite narrow-shouldered, while I have a more athletic set, so I know that if she fits into a particular size, I almost certainly have to size up at least one size above her. And the sizing was right on. The jacket is also somewhat heavier than I was expecting, but I’m quite happy about that. For $198, this is quite a steal, but I’ve also seen this on sale at 6pm.com for around $130! They don’t seem to be in stock right now, but if you dig this jacket, keep an eye out for it! It also comes in a gorgeous burgundy color.
I wore this outfit to a matinee show of Kinky Boots (highly recommended!). I hadn’t been to a show in many, many years so I wasn’t sure of the dress code, though I knew that matinees were more casual than the evening shows. So once again, I pulled out this super versatile striped sweater and threw it over black denim. Turns out I was somewhat overdressed even in this! Any chance I get to wear this striped sweater, I guess. 🙂
