That’s the sound I hear in my head when I find something that feels Just Right. It’s like a piece of a puzzle snapping into place.
While there is a science to style (proportions, textures, colors, etc.), for me it’s also about instinct and gut feelings. Though many of you expressed that you loved the pale blush jacket from last week’s post, I said later that it didn’t sing to me; though I did like it, it didn’t click. Some ineffable something just wasn’t there. While returning it, I spotted the same jacket in “Charcoal” (which is actually a dark taupe) and it was an immediate “oh YES.”
Here’s a closeup that better shows the color. For those who are interested, it’s a perfect match for the darkest brownish-grey on my Light Summer fan.
This goes with almost everything in my closet. The leather is super light, perfect for LA about 8 months out of the year (even in the summer, it gets cool in the evenings).
Scarf: J.Crew (I think) from prior year, similar // Earrings: Argento Vivo, no longer available, similar // Jacket: Vince // Sweater: Eileen Fisher, several years old, similar shape // Jeans: Citizens of Humanity // Boots: Aquatalia by Marvin K, no longer available, similar.
Do you have a similar recognition when a piece feels Just Right? Does it sometimes go against what you think you “should” wear or like?
