I am too embarrassed to mention how little I paid for this jacket so I'll leave you guessing.
It is rather ladylike, a classic, that will be paired with distressed denim as well as dressy skirts and pants.
Have you read the latest Vogue UK?
The Spring fashion issue?
I splurged and spent an hour sipping tea and reading it cover to cover.
On the cover draw your eye to the top right..
"Black and White Fashion's Perfect Pair."
I've been pairing them for the past few years and I am certainly no fashionista.
They are great partners and can be a sturdy and reliable palette.
A reader commented once that my love for black and white reminded them of the uniform that maids and hotel staff wear.
Right you are dear reader!
When I worked at The Oak Bay Beach Hotel in my teens I wore exactly that same uniform!
Coco Chanel loved using them together.
She was famous for pinning a pure white gardenia bloom onto a black jacket or LBD.
Coco's layered pearl strands were gorgeous worn on top of her black tops, dresses, and iconic tweed jackets.
I wore my boots shopping and they are super comfy.

Picked up some stuff that I needed at Sephora and the Beauty Insider Birthday gift.
Make Up Forever mascara and a lipstick.
I discovered that Fresh makes a Seaberry serum...
I thought that I would try a small size as it has Sea Buckthorn in it.
I apply a layer Sea Buckthorn salve every night before I go to bed which helps keep my rosacea under control.
I love a Chanel inspired jacket...tweedy with ragged threads.
These details are intrinsic in the iconic Coco Chanel design.
I think I'd swap out the blue denim skinnies for a darker denim, or my black ponte knit pants or black skirt with this jacket.. .it might look better with my white jeans.
With so many options it will be fun switching it up.
All I know is that it will be getting worn a lot!
Not a name that I know...have you heard it before?
Flirty cuff details...
My son and his lovely wife gave me a luxurious birthday gift.
Jo Malone's reed diffuser to imbue our Humble Bungalow with my favourite fragrance.
Life is not black and white, remember there are always some grey areas!
I wish you a joy filled week.
Linking up with Patti this Monday
