a military jacket is a repeat favorite that has that cool chic vibe i favor. this version is linen with roll-up sleeves. dress it up with a white denim pencil skirt. and add a striped tee for a smart summer style. but don’t forget to amp up the look with a few key accessories. a brown belt is a good starting point. see how the gold buckle emphasizes the gold zippers and buttons found on the jacket? a statement necklace in muted shades of green is fresh and fun and adds just the right amount of pizazz to this ootd. strappy sandals and a leather bucket handbag are the finishing touches that help me kick-off monday in style. and the sunnies? this is my last pair from Ditto. they say all good things must come to an end so don’t miss the sign-up! july 31st is the last day to use code STYLEATACERTAINAGE. receive your first month free with a subscription for endless designer eyewear on rotation. i’ve had a ball trying on different sunglasses for size. check back on sunday when i trot all six pairs out for one last spin.

you make basics look ever so chic… xoxo
you can never go wrong with the basics! classic and chic and always on trend.
well that is a sweet compliment!
I love a military jacket–and stripes are so classic, they always add interest. Great look.
thanks, sue. maybe that’s why i own so many different striped tees!
Loving the white skirt. I think I need one. And that necklace is awesome. Not to mention the sunnies. Sometimes I hate that we can’t wear them inside.
lol! i feel the same way about sunnies indoors.
