This outfit is one of my favorite outfits to wear. I love casual wear because it’s just easy! There’s nothing hard about putting one layer over another. One is a neutral and one is a basic print. I need to master the art of layering but sometimes it’s just easy to dress how you normally dress. I dress for comfort and ease. I think as a mom, I have to resort to basics rather than mastering with leather jackets or midi skirts with pleated blouses. Ahhh, too confusing but doesn’t I won’t try.
What trend/style are you looking forward to try this year?
I finally got the Malang jacket from Myuniqueen.com in a size Medium. I first ordered a Small which the sleeves did not fit my arms. It was too tight. Jean from Extrapetite.com did a review on the jacket and I fell in love with it. I decided to wear a form fitting black dress that is work appropriate along with the jacket to see how it will look.
Dress: BCBGMAXAZRIA LBD
Jacket: Malang Jacket from Myuniqueen.com
Shoes: AT Perfect Leather Pumps
The jacket is quite comfy and it is the right length on me. It’s not thin as the Yesstyle.com Tweed jacket in my previous post. I was surprised to see how much thicker it is. If you check out Jean’s post on the Malang, she notes the size and measurements of the jacket. But there is one difference I saw from her post. She has a picture of the lining. Hers show a shiny satiny lining. The jacket I got has a quilted lining that it a bit matted. There are top and bottom pockets large enough to put in my car and house keys. As noted by Jean, this jacket is an open style that just hangs wide. I am considering putting in a hook closure.
This is another outfit I wore with the Tweed Jacket. The weather was 60 degrees all day and dipped to the 40s at night. I was still warm because of the jacket. My turtleneck from Diane Von Furstenburg however was very thin and sheer (had to wear a nude cami underneath). I was glad I paired it with the jacket.
Overall regarding the Tweed Jacket, I think it will be staple in my wardrobe.
