Party Gear

After a particularly stressful day at the office last summer, my colleague and I decided to blow off some steam with an afternoon stroll down Charles Street in Beacon Hill. We popped into Crush Boutique, and there is was. A jacket. The jacket. Cream linen and studded. I literally fell in love. It was the last one in the store, on sale and in my size. It was like fate!

I wore this outfit to a party Saturday night with some friends and colleagues. I wanted to be the right amount of fun and funky while still looking appropriate in front of co-workers.

  1. Love the jacket, I'm a fool for anything that's bestudded. And I LOVE the color of the skirt too.

  2. A very funky jacket, and so versatile too. You could wear it with so many things!


  3. @Lissy I love that this skirt is blindingly bright! Thanks!

  4. @Miss A Miss A, you are a mind reader! I've been planning a "multiple ways to wear this jacket" post!

  5. Great find with the jacket!! I love it when that happens. Fashion destiny!

    I have already said this before, but I love the color of that skirt!! Looks great on you. I need to be bolder with my skirt color choices. I'm inspired. :)

  6. You're right - that is THE JACKET, all caps. Gorgeous! I will be doing some googling to try to find a similar one tonight. It looks great on you!
