One of the first things I did when I got this kimono-style jacket home was pin it close, like so, with my feather/leaf brooch. I like how the design of the brooch echoes the pattern of the jacket, and the whole thing has a utilitarian purpose too: the jacket fits loose, so it looks sharper when closed. I thought this was a nifty alternative to belting it (which I’ve done before).

There isn’t much more to say about this outfit — the jacket is a lot of “look”, so the rest of the ensemble inevitably has to be pretty simple. I did go with blush pink shoes, rather than black, for a bit of variety (and because these pretty Prada pumps don’t get nearly enough love). The result was very “lady who lunches” but … they say that one should dress for the job one wants, yes? Haha #justkidding
