Looking Back, Looking Forward

Today’s classic item is the Loft’s crinkle stripe jacket, which is apparently quite popular because it has sold out online already. I purchased the jacket during the Loft Spring Style Preview Event and got 30% off the $59.50 retail price. I spent $41.65 plus tax.

This jacket is perfect for spring. It has stripes and it is made of a lightweight linen-blend.

I have worn the jacket casually and you can check out those outfits in the Spring Break Style IIISpring Break Style V, and Movie Night posts.

Today, I am wearing the jacket to work. Once spring starts, I like my teaching looks to be more casual and less “stuffy” than usual. This jacket provides the perfect casual yet chic topper for a basic white tee and khaki skirt.

I started the day with the jacket belted, but felt too confined after an hour. So, I decided to belt the skirt instead and let the jacket flow freely.
