I did some shopping in my closet over the weekend, and decided to style some outfits around this knit ivory tweed jacket that I’ve had for a couple of years. Except for the second pair of pants, these are all pieces I’ve shared in prior outfits.
I’m wearing a size 36 in the jacket, XS in the top, 27 in the jeans.
I like to balance masculine and feminine elements in an outfit. Here I added cuffed boyfriend jeans and oxfords to offset the more feminine top and jacket. I’m absolutely jonesing for a haircut, 😆 have one scheduled tomorrow!
I really like this look, and it feels quite in sync with my style.
Wearing size Small in the top, 28 in the pants.
I tried on these coated jeans just for grins, but LM loved them AND I had a gift card so they came home with me. (I purchased from a department store but they’re not yet online on that store’s website, so I’ve linked to the same style, same price from another retailer.) I’m wearing size 28, and they seem to run TTS. The rise is a bit higher than I prefer for doing a French tuck, so I’ve left the top out here.
Coated denim can be a great option when you want something a bit dressier than blue jeans, but not as serious as trousers. More coated denim styles:
Here’s a little video I put together with both outfits…
Shopping for good, for real
My friends at Black LTD in the UK have created this stunning wool scarf with the colors of the Ukrainian flag and sunflowers (the national flower). These scarves are available for pre-order now, and ALL of the proceeds from sales (minus any government taxes) will be donated to the British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal. They are hoping to raise ￡20,000 for this appeal, and are covering the production costs of the scarves themselves.
Here’s their JustGiving page, which they’ve set up for transparency. (Thanks to reader Jan for the heads-up about this initiative.)
