Shopping with a client, I came across these utility jackets at 30% off right now. They are 100% cotton, machine-washable, lightweight, and impeccable quality. The immaculate bound seams on the inside almost made me shed a tear.....

They come in straight, plus, petite, and petite plus sizes across FOUR colours. The breast pockets lie very flat. Runs big if you prefer a narrower fit.

I had a colourful woven Summer jacket on my shopping list that was NOT a denim jacket, moto, bomber, blazer, raincoat, barn jacket, or Spring tweed. It had to have a collar and be casual. Found it! I got this in orange, which perfectly matches my old orange Furla. See pic.

I am 5ft 6 with long arms and narrow shoulders, and got this in a petite size because the fit was better. It's shorter, which I prefer. Fits very fluidly in the torso, in a good way. The sleeves are short (on me, because I'm not a petite), but I don't mind that one bit for a Summer jacket. Bracelet length works well.

Wore it yesterday with balloon jeans, silk sweater, bag, and white hi-tops. Winner!
