Happy Tuesday, ladies. I found this mannequin on Monday and couldn’t resist trying to style it myself. I have to say, I was singularly unimpressed with the styling, so I grabbed a few other pieces and switched things around.
Grab some coffee or tea and let’s chat about how you would wear this outfit.

I own these jeans but would never have styled them this way because it would make my legs look even shorter than they are so here’s what I tried.
This knit utility jacket is super soft, stretchy, and comfy in a really pretty blue. The color you see on the mannequin is more accurate because the dressing room was dark. I tried tucking the top in first.
Then I switched to these high-rise straight leg, uncuffed jeans. I like the look better already.
Then I swapped out the floral top for this tank, added this quartz/jade/labradorite necklace, and wove this tasseled scarf (on sale) through the belt loops. My verdict is this jacket works better with the uncuffed jeans. What do you think?
What would you have tried?
If utility jackets aren’t your thing, have you tried Poncho’s, Wraps, or Ruanas? They’ve been on my mind lately because we’re coming up on the perfect season to wear one. They’re warm, but not too warm, can cover a multitude of sins plus they offer a lot of comfort and flexibility. I love that you can pop a nice one over an average outfit and instantly look great!
Color blocking is always very popular so they coordinate with lots of things you wear them over.
