The jacket doesn't go with everything in my closet, but there are quite a lot of choices.
To the right, here it is with my new grey pants and a teal sweater (which is however hiding from view under the buttoned jacket).
Or we could go with a dress. My new grey one, from BurdaStyle (August, 2012), is a natural.
I do like what the crazy stripes do in the back.
It occurs to me that there is a hole in my wardrobe that could be plugged with a new pair of dark navy pants. You may not be surprised to learn that there is a pant length of such fabric in The Sewing Lawyer's stash. And something in a nice cherry red... So many possibilities, so little time!
