 A couple of Sunday's ago I put together this outfit...I call this jacket my "St. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band Jacket" (The beatles era for those of you who don't know) ;)

 I have had this jacket for a few years now and it is a staple in my wardrobe. I love the fit, the round gold buttons, the detailing on the shoulders and the mandarin color.

Even the back has great detailing too! I like how it cinches in the back and gives the illusion that I have a waist! I think wearing a dark jacket and color on the lower half of me works best to draw your attention down instead up where my very wide shoulders are.  This is such a great jacket...I don't remember where I bought it..(I think TJMaxx) I am wearing my black and white polka dot silkly blouse and a stretchy pink pencil skirt.

Because of the strong button detailing I chose not to wear a necklace with this outfit instead I am wearing black earrings but I don't think you can see them in any of the pics. The buttons also draw your eye down instead of across which really helps if you are short waisted like I am. One other tip...the blouse was too long as usual so I used a skinny black belt to blouson the blouse a little bit and pull it up.
