This is my first Outfit du Jour that I'm doing in conjunction with my 15 Ways to Wear Summer Clothes in Fall post. Today's idea is to use a light jacket that you can wear all day to bring a summer outfit to a new level. I paired a really light weight, structured black jacket that has a few military-esque details with this bell-shaped vintage dress. There are tons of ways to do this, so share your ideas in the comments section and hopefully we'll all gain some new inspiration!
Dress: Vintage, This was actually my mom's dress in about 1982. I'm really lucky that she kept some of her things.
Jacket: Charlotte Russe, $10.
Belt: Grabbed this off a Charlotte Russe dress I have, since the vintage one is missing the belt it came with.
Hat: Vintage, from Tickled Pink, apx. $5.
Sunglasses: Vintage, Thrifted, $3.
Green Post Earrings: F21, $4 for 12 pairs like these with different colors. I never knew how often I would end up wearing these.
Bracelet: Carole, Inc. $4. I know it looks blurry but the floral print on the bracelet is actually pretty blurry. I like it though. It makes it look a little softer.
Ring: Charlotte Russe, $4.
Bag: Chateau, apx. $15.
Black and Wood-Toned Platforms: F21, apx. $10.
Don't forget to comment, follow, and forward to your friends! How would you use a light jacket to transform a summer outfit? What would you do differently?
I love your outfit! I especially love your bag and hat! I have a nice black bag I got from Charlotte Russe Nearly two year ago that I use all the time - unfortunately it is dying, and I am in the market for a suitable replacement. I am envious of yours. >.<ReplyDelete
And that hat is really cool too! I would love to have something like that...
Anyway, great job on the outfit! Don't you just love Charlotte Russe? It's one of my favorite stores!
I do love Charlotte Russe! I always find amazing deals there. I hope you have good luck finding a new bag. I've been digging Old Navy bags a lot lately. I bought several denim ones over the spring/summer that I think I can carry year round. If you really want a bargain though, try a Goodwill! It might take a few tries, but you might find something really unique and affordable.ReplyDelete
