However, because of the masculine nature of the utility jacket, and the drab color, I always like to add a feminine touch to my outfit when wearing it. For today's look I chose a floral tunic from The Gap (old) to add that bit of femininity.
On the day we did this photo shoot, the sun was just starting to set and the temperatures were cooling down....so I did not want to remove my jacket! I'm such a big baby, I know. It was probably only in the low sixties, but after weeks of pushing eighty degree temperatures, I was already spoiled. If you'd like to see the shirt without the jacket and styled a different way, check out this old post HERE.
The jacket is super old. I picked it up at Dress Barn three years ago. It's very thin, so I hardly consider it a jacket and more of a blazer or accessory piece to wear indoors. However, for Florida temperatures, it's perfect.
Since I got bangs, I've discovered I really love fabric headbands. I don't know if the fashion gods would approve of fifty year old women wearing headbands, but, ask me if I care. If it's windy outside, I don't want my hair blowing all over the place. A soft, fabric headband keeps my hair out of my face and it also doesn't hurt like the plastic or metal ones do. I picked up this suede olive green headband for only $1.00 at a mall jewelry and accessory store. I've since grabbed about four more, and I will keep looking for more colors and styles on clearance every time I shop.
We didn't do much this day in Florida other than run to a few stores nearby, so I kept my look very casual. I had to do laundry and pack for my trip home, plus take a nap because my son was performing with his band from 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. so of course being the die-hard, supportive mother that I am, I had to see that! It was way past my bedtime to be out that late, but it was worth it! His band was amazing! You can check out their website HERE, and their Facebook page HERE. If you know anyone getting married in Florida, they would be a great band to book. They are a super talented group of young people and they play many of the current hits as well as some old ones.
Now sitting on the bench, that's more my style. I could sit on a park bench all day, especially in Florida!
Have a great day! Amy
