Here are two casual outfits, worn yesterday and today for walks/store runs, based on two shackets I have, which are slightly different from typical ones featured in the yesterday's blog post.

Yesterday's outfit was built around pink G-Star Raw utility shacket I got earlier in the summer, that the manufacturer calls "overshirt". I am not sure if it technically qualifies as a shacket as it looks more like a utility jacket, but in terms of thickness it is definitely as Angie described on the blog: much thinner than a utility jacket, unlined, but a bit thicker than a shirt. I wore it loose (as in photos #2 and #4), but it has a drawstring that can be adjusted for a more fitted look (like in #3). The rest of the outfit is another version of the skirt & stompy boots look, this one with an old cream denim skirt, and debut of two NAS items, blush striped tee and cream stompy boots.

Today's outfit is based on a knit BR shacket I got two weeks ago. I chose knit as it is less bulky and drapes better than standard boxy shackets. I wore it with old sleeveless knit turtleneck, old-ish Gap bootcut jeans and 3" wedge shoes the jeans required. The jeans are 3-4 years old (not from 10-12 years ago), which you can likely tell by the high rise. I love the side detail/inset, which is the main reason I got them. I don't wear them often as at this, original length, they need 3" heels, and these are the only comfy shoes of that height I own. I generally do not wear that height of heels anymore, I have a preference for 2" heels these days. They would get much more wear if I shortened them 1-1.5", but I have been hesitant to do so as I did not want to risk messing up the fun side-seam design.
