WiW: A Professional Look ... and the Fun Commute! // New Jacket!


My new jacket came in the post yesterday, and after a long fight with the postal office, I got it released to me! It's a black pleather quilted jacket and is actually quite warm. I ordered it in black (#8) and white (#9), but I didn't like the look in white, so that is going back to the store :) It was a steal at $29 (original $120) at Rickis - that means you, Canadian Fabbers!

I thought it was a bit too "fun" for the clinic I was at this morning, so I brought a traditional blazer with me.

You know what I've noticed? Less cardigans and more blazers! The Angie Influence is making me lean toward these tailored looks more and more often!

Also; my last blitz of call has paid for a few extras for me to close out April with - #4 to 7 - The black suede pumps were a steal at $70; Cole Haan that make me feel like Kate Middleton - which I suppose, can't be a bad thing, right? 

Love ya!

    That jacket is all kinds of awesome, it fits you perfectly! Love it! Why didn't you like the look of the white?

    Is that a bird necklace you are wearing? That is gorgeous!

    I have been on a blazer kick lately, too - I NEVER wear them but am starting to appreciate the look. I bought 3 at LOFT with their 40% off sale, and 2 at J.Crew Factory with their 50% off sale. Now I have to figure out how to wear them!

    I seriously approve this black pleather jacket. It ups the substance of your outfit in a big way.

    The necklace is so cute and whimsy! I love it! Are you wearing another skirt or a slip under your dress? I love the lace edge. The jackets are simply perfect with this dress.

    @ Kristin - Those are definitely birds! Le Chateau necklace (about $15?) that I like. The white jacket looks like it will get dirty really easily, and is a bit too "bright" - I love blazers! I got a bunch on sale too and they are so easy to wear and feel fab, eh?

    @ Rachylou - Thanks! I feel that way too!

    @ Day Vies - It's a slip under my dress, it's grey - I have a dark grey one and a light grey one, and a bit of a brown one :) It helps me add a bit more volume and a little bit of whimsy! Also; nice for staticy things!

    Oooo, nice pleather! Look at that waist definition! Love the blazer too. It's perfect for your professional style.

     I'm so loving the way your style is morphing to Lyn's version of professional dress. You set a whole new standard in how to take the stuffiness out of professional dress!

    Oh, it looks great! Big love. Too bad the white didn't work out, it looks so cute when I imagine it!
