OOTD For The Office: A Dressy Jacket With Casual Stripes

In today's black and white outfit, which I wore to work, I've dressed up a pair of casual jeans and striped tee with a pretty kimono style jacket.
I am a big fan of wearing a longer layer over a top (or just a longer top) to camouflage the hips a bit.
Love these suede-like pointy toed flats with studs and buckles.

  1. Beautiful. You put outfits together so nicely.

    I don't know if I've ever said this to you before, but -- from my perspective -- you look really young and healthy. Not "20-years old" young but "in the prime of your life" young. I *wish* I looked as good as you, but too many decades have passed me by. Enjoy it!

    1. Oh, Ally, thank you. I think I understand what you mean. This is the happiest time of my life and so maybe how I "feel" shows.
      And don't think for a moment that too much time has passed you by. You appear very youthful to me...ready and open to new discoveries and life's pleasures.

  2. Love the black and white on you ,one of my favourite looks ! best wishes to you both x

  3. I too am a big fan of hiding my hips (and my tummy) with a longer layer. Menopause has not been kind to my metabolism. ;) YOu do look amazing!

    1. Thank you, Debbie.
      Well, I've always had me some hips, haha. And, oh great....I guess I can expect more expansion in the coming years. :)
