I met up with some girlfriends Sunday for a late lunch (because we hadn’t eaten enough in the city the day before!) and since I didn’t actually wear green on Saturday, I figured I’d give a nod to St. Patrick’s Day and wear this green and navy plaid dress from Old Navy. I typically wear this dress under a black duster-length knit cardigan but that can look a little teacher/librarian-ish, which is fine for work, but…not so much for fun.
So I added The Thing That Can Go Over ALL The Things, a denim jacket, and poof, it’s a look. The mustard gold scarf just brought in a pop of color. I would have preferred to wear white trainers but…I don’t own them yet, so I was back in my off-road flats.
Seriously, what can a denim jacket NOT go over? Pink prom dress, check. Champagne silk slip dress, check. Tulle skirt, jeans with white tee, black leggings and trainers, check check check. Floral sundresses, checked suit trousers, leather mini skirt – I DEFY you to find an outfit that is not darling topped with a denim jacket.
Yeah, I was a little overly optimistic with the bare legs as we’re not quite out of the winter woods yet (note snow on ground. newsflash: more snow tonight and tomorrow. maybe I should trade in my denim jacket for a snowsuit). But I’m a little weary of jeans all day every day for ever and ever and thought a dress would be nice. And reaching my feet to put on tights?? Out of the Question.
Do you have one item in your wardrobe that you feel goes with everything else in your closet??
