I was shopping with some friends last week, who discovered that I didn't have a denim jacket and thought it was a real tragedy. Thanks to their encouragement, I tried on a denim jacket at GoodWill, and decided to take it home with me. I was eager to try it out with Burberry styling, so I paired it buttoned all the way up today with a midi skirt (mine's black and white, rather than light colored) and coordinating shoes (black and strappy in my case)

I started out with a different skirt (more like the one Firecracker wore in her Burberry-inspired outfit), but the proportions were off (the skirt was too short, or the jacket too long). So I swapped it for this longer midi tube skirt. I tried to make the outfit more springlike by adding a pink lip.

I felt like it was a reasonably successful venture, and got comments that I looked "especially put together".

What do you think? What could/should be improved?

(And wow - my hair got long-ish. How did that happen? Do I need to schedule a cut?)
