Thursday: Stripe and Dot

Outfit Posts wide calf boots Winter
Jacket: Gap | Tank: Caslon (similar) | Scarf: Ann Taylor (similar) | Jeans: c/o Gap | Boots: DUO (similar)

I swore I wouldn’t buy anything I didn’t need, and I guess I don’t actually NEED this jacket… but when I saw this jacket I did fall pretty hard. Dresses up and down well, the fabric makes it work year-round, I am on a mega navy kick, and it’s striped! It’s actually a very nice jacket – good details like the zippered cuffs don’t unzip and have fabric behind them, hematite-colored zippers so you can wear with gold and silver jewelry, fully lined, and a good fit (I am wearing a 12 regular and it zips comfortably even over my bust). I know, I’m wearing gifted Gap jeans but that has nothing to do with this endorsement of the jacket, which I paid full price for (okay, I got 10% off since it was Tuesday and had a $10 rewards for being a Banana Republic cardholder). It’s just pretty fab!

    It *is* fab – classic with a twist. And you look so pretty in it!

  • I love the combo of the stripes and dots and the jacket is just darling.

  • I think you nailed mixing stripes and dots! You look gorgeous.

    Love the jeans and the scarf. I like the mix of the pole dot sizes.

  • Southernliberal

    I love the jacket but the jeans are what I covet! Current Gap?

  • This mixed print look works because you kept everything in the same color family. Now if someone could just send out a text to women and magazine stylists around the world…

  • LOL

  • Yes! They are the Always Skinny Skimmer Jeans, new on the site. Stay tuned I’ll have a post just about them and showing how versatile and fun they are. Ankle length but not cheesy. Pleasantly surprised by them!

  • I love the navy – it’s one of my favorite colors to wear. I also like how you’ve done that pattern mixing. I rarely pattern mix myself, because I feel there is a fine line between it looking really cool and different, and it looking like you just picked random things in your closet and threw them on. The navy/white color palette certainly helps 🙂

  • Love the mix of prints, looks great on you!

    That jacket is a great buy if you ask me! It is so versatile and your overall outfit is fun yet chic especially with the pop of red lipstick! xx
