I love the colors on this jacket, and I adore the print, but it makes me feel like the Hunchback of Santa Fe:
And that, I imagine, is why I’ve never worn it, even though it’s been in my closet for at least a year. I’ve attempted to wear it several times, but it’s never been quite right. And today is no exception. It’s just not quite right. I like the colors of the jacket (thrifted) with the color of the blouse (Nordstrom). And I like the skinny jeans (Gap) with the platform sandals (MRKT via DSW). And I like the red-orange necklace with the blouse and the jacket. But, I don’t like the jacket. The fit really just isn’t right; it gives me hunchy, bunchy shoulders and my shoulders don’t like that at all.
So, it’s gone. I’m actually going to give it to a co-worker who saw me in it today and liked it (yes, even on me).
I think we can consider this progress. Sure, I still have too many black skirts, but I no longer have an ill-fitting, multicolored jacket or a bunch of drop-waist skirts. So, sure, yes, let’s call it progress.*
Happy Tuesday, All!
* I will be doing a post on my progress (or whatever) fairly soon (hopefully), so stay tuned (please).
