Take A Second Look At Our Beautiful Olivia Jacket
I hope everyone had a nice long Memorial Day weekend, relaxing and spending time with loved ones and of course remembering all the people who have served our country to make it a great place to live.
Even though Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer, we have had overcast and cloudy skies here in Los Angeles over the last few weeks and it continued this weekend as well with the sun only coming out for a couple of hours here and there. So going to the beach for us or swimming wasn’t really on the cards, but we did get together with my family for a nice barbecue on Sunday afternoon. I also managed to get some chores done around the house and have a low key, relaxing weekend.
The first time I showed you our Olivia jacket was back in February when I styled it for a fall look, so this time I wanted to style it for spring. It has been a great seller for us probably because it is such a good basic black jacket that’s fashionable and can also be worn to the office.
One of my favorite ways to take a women's jacket from fall into spring is to wear it with shorts instead of pants. Different length shorts obviously work for different occasions. For the office, the shorts need to be longer like Bermuda shorts and in some cases you have to wear hosiery to work, but I love the look of bare legs with sandals with a longer short for office. They are a great alternative for skirts as well, and give you an updated suit look.
This is the look I am showing you today as I chose to wear our Olivia jacket with my black Bermuda shorts that happen to be below the knee, but above the knee Bermudas would work as well. It has a clean, polished look that you could wear in most offices or to a lunch or dinner out. I paired it with a neutral top and my tan mules and bag. You can never go wrong with a black and tan combo look. I also wanted to show you two of our beautiful necklaces that I stacked together for this look. As you all know I love stacking necklaces together and even bracelets too. There are certain necklaces that look great stacked together and for me I think these two look perfect together.
