If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know I like to buy some choice pieces of clothing that have style, but are timeless. So I recently pulled out this Nicole Miller military jacket I bought at Ruth Meyers (now R. Meyers) in Oklahoma City, I kid you not, I want to say 10 years ago. Yup. It was a short little thing, and I also got a silky sheer blouse that has some fun pleats at the bottom that hang down below the bottom of the jacket. It wasn’t cheap, and the fabric was a bit different and the buttons and all the simple details on it made it a piece I just couldn’t part with. It was too good to let go of because I know I could wear it again. When I invest in a classic piece, I’m not one to just get rid of it that fast.
So I decided to pair this neutral jacket with my Frame Jeans from Cayman’s in Norman, some Giussepe Zanotti pumps I’ve had for a while as well, and a basic blush t-shirt from Target (because I love Target and I love blush. End of story). Again the detail in the golden tortoise makes them pop for me. (It’s kinda in the family of nudes right? Ok.. well it has GOLD in it.. that makes them good, right? LOL!) However I pulled it all together, I just did, because spring neutrals is what’s in.
I’m so glad I didn’t part with this jacket because that military style never really leaves. I feel like it’s always a classic and commands your attention somehow. And neutrals being so in this spring, I was just happy that after having it a decade, it still looked pretty darn good. Now.. does this date me? (wink!)
What do you think? Do think I did good by keeping it or should I have gotten rid of it years ago?
Sidenote… in case you notice anything different about me, my sweet daughter straightened my hair for me. Love it or leave it? Oh.. she also pinned my bangs back too.
