A New Jacket
I love boutique shopping.
Alas, I am not a kept woman, so I only get to boutique shop during massive sales. When local store W has its 75 percent off rack, I can't keep myself away.
Here's the gem I recently snapped up: a Monrow paneled jacket.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but the tuxedo-ish piece has shiny, satin-y pieces that form the collar and stretch across the shoulders. It looks dressy, but it's mostly knit so it's very comfy. That's my main hangup with more structured jackets — they feel like strait jackets because the material is so stiff and the shoulders don't move. Knit solves that problem quite nicely.
The outfit: Monrow jacket; white Splendid tank; AG legging jeans; Madewell chandelier necklace; Ash wedge sneakers.
