Dark navy and black are a current, sophisticated color combination, seen here on a recent evening out on the town….this outfit combines a few ‘investment’ pieces that I will wear for years to come – BUT – are you reading Peter??? – not to feel guilty at all because I balance these purchases with plenty of major bargains at consignment shops and retail store sales. Ok, moving right along…….. a navy jacket has actually that has been on my radar for months – I have plenty of black jackets, but wanted a dark navy to add to my basics….something with a bit of ‘edge’, not too preppy….I checked out many stores – from Revolve to Rag and Bone to even The Gap (saw one there that was a close contender!)….found this Burberry on sale at Nordstrom’s and I loved it immediately – one of the best style details is the peplum back, forgot to photograph it myself so I am showing you the ad…so cute!
The white top is a timeless piece from one of my favorite shops, Wolford…..it has sheer sleeves and sheer detail at the neck….it can be worn with jeans, or dressed up with a skirt or dress pants…sexy but covered up, so great for middle aged ladies that prefer to cover up the arms.
