What I Wore: That Jacket!

wardrobe oxygen over 40 fashion blog wardrobe oxygen over 40 blogger wearing karen kane jumpsuit topshop clutch wardrobe oxygenJacket: Halogen (XLP) | Jumpsuit: Karen Kane (same but with textured top, similar without pattern but a bit less dressy) | Shoes: Nine West | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bag: Topshop (similar) | Choker: Argento Vivo | Bracelet: Had forever (similar)

This is the white jacket I mentioned in yesterday's fashion purchases hits and misses post.  It's not a pure white, which I think is actually more flattering and versatile.  I wore it to work with a black matte jersey shell and black pants and another time with a striped tank and grey jeans, but tried it with this old favorite jumpsuit (last seen here) and loved it.  This is the best jumpsuit ever; it's stretchy enough that I can get it on and off easily in the bathroom, has a built-in cami, and a crepe finish that can dress up nicely or look beachy casual with flat metallic sandals.  Though we're deep into April, the weather is still chilly and I had been looking for a topper to make this wearable but still polished.  I think this jacket does the job, and does it better than any other blazer I own or have tried.  Next time you see it on here, I'll have a more casual look to show it's awesome versatility!

      The bloopers always make me giggle when I scroll through them. Some are crazy, but some like this are awesome! Thanks Jodie!

    The good thing about that jacket is that it doesn’t have any buttons. I feel like if a jacket has buttons then you should be able to button it, which always causes me fit issues because I’m different sizes jacket to pants. Even if I don’t button the button when I wear it I want it to fit if I do button the button.
    No button solves that problem!

    I think this jumpsuit fits you beautifully as the jacket – nice pairing.

    This is very convincing that you have to dig past a lot of not-so-great to find your gems. This looks fabulous. The long column of the jumpsuit looks stunning with this white jacket. Win win win!!!!
