When something speaks to me as forcefully as this jacket did, I can not pass it by.
I was browsing through the offerings of Ralph Lauren items on the Dillard's website when I saw this classic military-inspired jacket. The burnished brass buttons and faded gold braid are in perfect harmony with the washed twill slightly faded fabric. If the trim and buttons were bright gold I would not have been drawn to it at all. Ralph Lauren has always been the master of details.
I will wear this jacket many times! It also looks great with white, black, caper green or even khaki jeans. I wore it for the first time out to lunch with Mr. Mickey on Friday with straight leg ankle jeans from Chico's last year.
The tee is the white Simple Comfort from Covered Perfectly.
The shoes are a couple of years old by BCBG via Ross. The brown leather Calvin Klein belt is old from T.J.Maxx.
The bag is by Zac Posen via Saks Off 5th.
