Ya'll know I'm all about wearing First Lady jackets, as I like to call them. Generally made of tweed or boucle, they lend a certain air of sophistication to any outfit you pair them with. I never would've thought to wear one with an edgier item like a criss cross black top, but the inspiration outfit was just too intriguing to pass up. My jacket is ivory and the skirt is slightly more white which I know could be a deterrent for some. It doesn't bother me too much though, and the overall feel of the outfit is similar. This jacket was a part of my favorite outfit from last winter, and I'm glad for another way to wear it this year!
