Birthday coupons are the best. The Limited sent me one at the beginning of the month, and I finally redeemed it yesterday. After cleaning my closet a couple weeks ago, I realized that what I really
need want are jackets. Lucky for me, guess what I found hanging on the rack?
Immediately I was drawn by the stripes, the structure, and the cinched waist. But the big question was: how in the world would I style it? [Quite easily, actually. With a colorful skirt. I knew that one right away.]

I'm generally avoid pairing blue, white, and red together in an effort to not look patriotic, but blue, white, and pink? Love it. The best part about this outfit is that I have so many of these tees that are too informal to be worn alone when teaching. Even pairing them with a cardigan doesn't give me that (semi) professional edge I seek. But this jacket definitely does. It gives a nice structure but still allows flexibility for a business-casual look.
I'll admit that I was hesitant for a split second due to the cap sleeves (this one is my first!), but I figured since I live in a warm enough climate, I'll get plenty of use out of this jacket. Do you own any cap sleeve jackets? How do you style them?
