The Indispensable Utility Jacket

20191004_154422.jpgThis is the perfect time of year to wear the utility jacket–it has a lightweight warmth and is a great closet staple that goes well with denim. And not only denim, but just about everything from shorts, skinny pants, dresses and even a…shag skirt.shagskirt
I had to do a double take on the above skirt as I had never thought of pairing this creative combo which comes from this site 21 Practical Ways to Wear a Utility Jacket.
20191004_160251 (1)The utility jacket is a classic transitional piece that every woman needs in her wardrobe.20191004_15431720191012_181456The jacket I am wearing is by Cabelas, classic fit, and is made from 100% pure comfortable cotton. Another aspect I like about this jacket is that it’s machine washable so any doggie slobber on my sleeves can be easily rectified which makes it dog proof. And my navy blue button-down shirt is from L.L. Bean and is “wrinkle free.”
I wanted to share with you a recent visit to T. J. Maxx and bring you into my dressing room. The colors that are trending right now are true autumnal shades such as earthy brown, butterscotch gold, and chili pepper red.  Since my seasonal color analysis is “fall,” I gravitate towards these colors like dog hair to velvet. And animal print not only continues to be popular but is one of the biggest fall fashion trends according to this site: Animal Print Fall Trend 2019.
