That Perfect Jacket

I really love this set of photos because of the snow. I've never been a big fan of winter, but I do appreciate the small and individual beauty of a snowflake.

Even with a certain dislike for freezing temperatures, I do love the aspect of layering clothing which these temperatures afford ! After searching for years, I have finally found the PERFECT military green jacket from Anthropologie.. I love it so much I gave away the three other military green jackets that I owned (I was trying REALLY hard to make them "the one," but to no avail). This one is truly perfectly detailed and perfectly fitted. I paired the jacket with a fun printed knit dress from Francesca's Collection, sheer black tights (duh) , a warm furry scarf from TJ Maxx (I love Tj Maxx), and my favorite leather Minelli booties from Paris, and my pebbled leather Gucci Bag.

This was one of those outfits that I looked back on and was thought to myself, 'ugh I wish I would've worn some cute jewelry or a belt,' but it's ok. I've always disliked the fussiness of over-accesorizing. Besides, I don't think "simple" should have such a negative conniption in fashion.

  1. I think this is one of my favorite outfits ! I really like the red with the olive green coat.

    1. Thank you so much! I really like this outfit as well, especially for the holidays! Xo

  2. That does seem like the perfect military jacket! Love the little ruffle detail in the back. I'm still looking for my 'the one'. Right now, I'm abusing a Gap jacket I found at Plato's Closet. Maybe one day, I'll be able to justify an Anthropologie purchase.

    1. Oh I totally understand! I had two from H&M .. But I got a great deal on this, it was in the clearance section and I got another 20% off with my anthro card ! They have great sales after the holidays! Good luck on your search and thanks for the sweet comment :) xo

  3. This is a very neat outfit, Livy. I especially like the jacket. The colors put
    me in the Christmas mood.
