This jacket and skirt combo was a surprising crowd pleaser today, and I give all the credit to J.Crew's pretty lady jacket. I wish I wasn't standing like such a dork in this picture because I don't think you can truly see the outfit (I really need to start taking multiple pictures to give more detail). I have struggled a bit with what to pair this jacket with, because the trim isn't exactly black, it's a very dark navy. It doesn't look that great with black, but I loved it with charcoal. Everywhere I went, someone had a nice comment about the outfit...even an elderly gentleman struggling with his walker took the time to compliment me. So sweet! I love when people show kindness. I always try to pay it forward.
Thanks for reading.
