When putting together an outfit this week I had two motives: showcase another spring jacket to continue my spring jacket series, and find something, anything, in my closet that I haven't shown you before. And that is how to my surprise this fabulous outfit was created. I never in a million years would have considered pairing a faux-leather moto jacket with a lavender lace top; but I love it!
American Eagle is the only store I was able to find flares that weren't too long. I like my flares a little shorter so I can wear them with a lower heel. Most flares are designed to be worn with stilettos...which I don't wear.
My black pashmina scarf is from T.J. Maxx (old).
My purse is actually a back pack. I only use it as a back pack when traveling. I normally just sling it over my shoulder like this. I bought it at Kmart a year or so ago while on vacation. We were hiking in the mountains and believe it or not we were ill prepared and did not bring a back pack. So I ran into the nearest town store and grabbed this baby and have been using it ever since.
I don't normally pose like this, but I was trying to find the best stances to show the special features of the sleeves.
See how deep the sleeve opening goes? Isn't that different?
I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this outfit when I saw the pictures. I've never worn this top much because I always struggled with how to style it. To come up with such a fun outfit by chance was a nice unexpected event.
What about you? Have you ever accidentally paired some clothing items and was surprised by how well it looked? I'd love to hear from you!
