I thought I liked how the jacket's scoop neck allowed the shirts ruffled collar to be pulled out above the jacket, but maybe it's a bit, too... Elizabean? (You know, the era where they wore those funny ruffled collars?) However, I DO like the stripes and polka dots paired together.
I was going to try my white blazer with this top, per my fashion goals (see this post), but the polka dots were much more cream-colored than the blazer, so I tried this cream and blue striped linen jacket instead. Not exactly pastels, but no black in sight!
Outfit details after pictures.
Jacket: Merona, Target, last year (similar cut but more casual, similar with no collar and stripes, similar with lapels, similar moto style)
Skirt: J. Crew (exact in current colors)
Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW (super cute less clunky version, red patent version, adorable wedge version)
