Our weather took a definite turn toward Spring yesterday, with temperatures in the high 70's F. I had to scramble a bit in the morning, and decided to go with my jeans-and-jacket formula. Not my most brilliant look (probably should have added some color with the scarf), but serviceable.
The Eileen Fisher tuxedo jacket I mentioned last week didn't quite do it for me. The styling is nice, the fabric is lovely, but I didn't love it on me. When I returned it to the store, I was browsing the sale rack and noticed the jacket I'm wearing above. It's a very lightweight viscose rayon knit, with 3/4 sleeves and nice seamed shaping that flatters. It was marked down by half, and though I wasn't specifically looking for another black jacket, this one's light enough to wear during warmer months, helps to dress up the jeans a bit, and should pack nicely for travel if needed.
