It’s a real shocker, I know. I’m actually wearing an outfit that is completely clear of black. It’s weird to see, and it was weird to feel as it was happening. This jacket has taken some adjusting in my closet but something about it really caught my eye. I stalked it for a few days in the store wondering “am I crazy for wanting this?” before I finally decided to dive in. It’s those times when the usual edgy black ensembles don’t cut it – a spring luncheon, a baby shower – when I really notice the need for a few contrasting pieces in the wardrobe. This one may be an odd choice but I had to go with it. I had to see where the birds would take me. I like how it speaks for itself, and doesn’t need more than the most basic base outfit of jeans and a white tee to look pulled together.
