It's Here!

It's not even 3 p.m. and my jacket just arrived!  Holy cow, that was quick shipping (guess it helps to be just a stone's throw away from my favorite set of islands!).  
The jacket is as lovely as I remember and it fits, even thought I ordered a size down from what I tried on last summer.  It's the perfect fit to go over tanks and such now, and fits beautifully, not too tight, not too loose.  By Thanksgiving it should be perfect over lightweight sweaters!  
I am so doing a happy little dance now, and I cannot wait until G gets home.  It is shorter, more of a cropped leather jacket, with 3/4 sleeves (hard to tell in the pic, but since I tried it on last year I already knew that!).  I don't remember how it will look over jeans with my long torso, but I'm sure with a long tank/tunic under it will be great for layering.  (I tried it on with jeans last year.)  In fact, I may have just the perfect tank....a Vivienne Tam I wore with my Tahari blazer for dinner the other night.  I am so excited for this fall and everything it will bring, and this motivates me to lose the last bit of the weight (but not too much, I'm worried I'll have to order another jacket if I do that!).
I'll be continuing on my fall fashion posts this week, since it's my absolute favorite season fashion wise.  Stay tuned!

  2. This jacket is so stylish and perfect on you. You've chosen well. I can see it would be a jacket that is adaptable to many looks and quite transeasonal. And Jaeger too. So fancy!

  4. You look très chic in your new purchase. I think you will get lots of mileage out of that beautiful jacket this fall and winter.

    Good choice!
