Fashion Friday: Velvet Jacket Edition

TGIF right? It's been a busy week around here so today's Fashion Friday is really a What I Wore for a little real life mom fashion. 

I love jackets, don't you? Multiple layers always add texture and make an outfit look multi-dimensional and more "put together". Jackets can be truly flattering if they are cut correctly for your shape. 

I found this lovely green velvet jacket at the LOFT a couple months ago, but hadn't figured out how to wear it yet. Well I love how it looks over top these light khaki pants. The top underneath is a fitted shell in ivory with a lace overlay for a very feminine touch. The scarf came from Old Navy, the brown leather ankle boots are one of my favorite pairs by Merona from Target. Earrings are Premier Designs and the gold stretch bracelet is J. Crew. 


Of course now it's 80 degrees in Houston again so I won't likely be wearing this velvet jacket again for awhile!

Your turn. Tell me about your favorite jacket in the comments! 


Bonus! Give me some ideas of what else to wear with this jacket.

Last year I bought a basic navy blazer from J. Crew and now have no idea how I lived without one for so long.

Love it!!! blazers are amazing - why did I wait so long to get one?!??!

Can you believe I don't have a single blazer in my closet? Must remedy that.

That reminds me...my navy blazer is in the hands of Pam from @outsidevoice and I need it back!
