Fabulous Finds and Fashions-April 13, 2016

Hello!  Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  A time where we show off the clothes that we have purchased and now have to figure out what to wear with it.  Fun!

Alright, so the item on the docket today is this beautiful cover-up.  Honestly, I have no idea what I would call the style of the jacket, but I really like it.  I bought it when I was in 4-H for a Fashion Revue project and love how it fits and how it looks on me.

Unfortunately, I have only worn it with a single style of outfit.

I have always worn this with a white shirt and jeans.  And, even though it’s cute and it looks good together, I really need to find other things to wear it with.  So here are two different outfits that I found in my closet to pair with my jacket.

1. The Gold Skirt

I started off my closet raid by finding this gold J.Lo skirt that I bought on clearance from Kohls.  I’ve always liked the skirt, but it can be difficult to find things to wear with it.  I then added a brown tank top because all of my brown shirts either had design or weren’t the right style to add with the jacket.  So, I went with a simple tank top.  I then added a pair of brown American Eagle heels that I purchased from Payless.  Overall, I thought the outfit looked really cute and I like how it looked in it.

Isn’t it cute together?  I am glad that I found this outfit hiding out in my closet.

2. Blue and Khaki

Full Chinese Jacket and Shorts

I’ll start off with the shirt.  I have had this shirt for forever!  Like, since high school (okay, that was 5 years ago, but still).  But, I pulled it out of my closet and liked the color under the jacket.  I then added a pair of khaki shorts that I bought from Torrid that fit me really well and they are extremely comfortable.  I added a pair of gold Vera Wang flip flops that I bought off season at Kohl for $5 and a gold headband.

Before I leave it here, I must say that I pulled off the boho headband better than I thought I would.  All I had to do was pin my bangs back and I pulled it off swimmingly.

Thank you everyone for stopping by and I hope to see you all on Friday!

    Hi Lauren, I thought your jacket looked great with both outfits! I really like the jacket – wonder how it would look with a basic black dress? It has an Asian look to it. Enjoy wearing it! Blessings, Janet
