I never saw myself buying a riding jacket. Too preppy for me, right? But then again, cropped little jackets are actually a mainstay of my cold weather wardrobe. This one just has a slightly different vibe.
On our most recent foray to Nordstrom's in Tampa I finally went upstairs to the ladies' section. Yep, all these trips I have stayed downstairs with the BF to find him Canali clothing for work. It was the half yearly sale so up I went and started to explore. Nothing really caught my eye except a cute little purplish plaid jacket . . . in an extra small I got it on over my shoulders, but buttoning the double breasted placket would have been a joke. Come to find out this was the jacket in Angie's post about 70's on the go equestrian style. And it runs small, and is sold out in my regular size. http://youlookfab.com/2011/10/.....d-leather/
Fast forward a few weeks and what pops up online? That cute little jacket! I should receive it in a day or two. Now I start to wonder if it will be as versatile as I want.
I've never owned plaid beyond a flannel shirt as a teenager. But I'm holding on to the idea that paired with jeans and my cognac foldover boots, it will be fabulous enough that I don't need 5 iterations of it to make me happy. Right?

(oh and this is why I can't be jacket twins with Una and her Muu Baa just yet)
