Pinspiration Day 22 - Christina

Sunday, Oct 21st, I stayed in the apartment all day doing laundry, cleaning, organizing, and baking so I have nothing to post.  I will make up for it by doing an extra special post later this week.

I mentioned that I went to the outlet mall on Saturday with my MiL and you can imagine the temptation I faced to shop.  Thankfully, she did most of her clothing shopping before I arrived so we focused on housewares and fabric for some chair cushions.  However during a stop at Target I found this jacket and fell in love.  Plus it comes in a skirt and dress to match!  One of trends I noticed was that I needed more pattern in clothing so I broke down and bought the jacket and ordered the dress online.  Can you really blame me for getting Chanel-esque suiting at such a steal?

I felt really comfortable all day in the jacket and dress combo and very polished when I attended a seminar and networking event after work.  The jacket looks great with black of course, but I look forward to pairing it with some more color.  

My office mate told me that brooches are making a big comeback this season and I could totally pair this jacket with one to get more out of it.  6 Ways to Rock a Brooch

What would you pair this jacket with?
