On this day however, I did use it as a fall jacket to go shopping. I wore a very thick sweater and a scarf underneath the jacket to keep me warm. CJBanks sizes tend to run large for me; a size Medium provided ample room for the thick sweater. If you want the jacket to be more form fitting, you might want to size down.
The booties are by Blowfish. I can't tell you how much I love grey booties. I feel they provide a nice contrast to black pants and look a little more interesting than if I styled this look with black booties.
Because I had a scarf and jacket on, I did not wear a necklace or bracelet. I did however, wear black and silver earrings, and lots of rings.
Here is a peek at my thick sweater I had on underneath. It's a marbled black and white design. It is a really cute sweater with a zipper on the top shoulder.
It was a cooler day, so I added a black pashmina scarf.
Here is a back view of the jacket. It has a nice fit to it, I love the hidden zipper design when the jacket is closed. My husband really likes this jacket too and thinks it's "very classy looking". And the most important thing? It's actually very comfortable as there is a lot of "give" in the fabric. I don't usually like to wear jackets or blazers because I find them too uncomfortable, but this one is not uncomfortable at all.
And now I want to show you another way I wore this corduroy jacket. This time it was for a formal event: my granddaughter's baby dedication! Ashley and Jason's church is very formal compared to ours and we were told to dress "Business Casual". Which was pretty funny, as I didn't have a whole lot of "Business Casual" items in my closet, so this new jacket came in handy!
Here I am holding precious Alethea before the service! She was so GOOD! Just a doll during the entire dedication. Of course she looked at the preacher like he was from Mars, but she didn't cry! Her pretty pink dress is vintage.
And this is my husband and I with Alethea after the service. Do we look like the proud grandparents or what?
I know you can't see my entire outfit, as Alethea was the center of attention for the photographs, not my clothes. To style my grey corduroy jacket for this dressy occasion, I wore a smokey grey turtleneck underneath with a long silver pendant. This time instead of pairing the jacket with pants, I wore a short, knit skirt and black OTK boots.
And here is the rest of the family! We had my son jump in for a few pictures.
And the proud parents: Ashley and Jason.
And finally, because I'm getting so much positive feedback of how readers like it when I post previous ways I styled my clothes, here is a picture of the same black and white sweater I wore in the casual look. This time I styled it with white jeans and black boots.
Have a Great Day! Amy
