Polished Cargo

Happy Saturday! The holidays are nearing! I'm very eager to get home, see my beloved city all decked out for the holidays and hug my sisters. My family celebrates two religions, so we've always gotten the best of both worlds: potato latkes AND a Christmas tree. I cannot wait to bask in the holiday love.

This past week my significant other completed two of his law school finals. We felt it more than appropriate to get a little dolled up and take ourselves out to celebrate his hard work. I've had this Chanel-esque cropped jacket in my wardrobe for over two years now (from Express) and I've only managed to wear it once. I wanted to make the polished look a bit edgier so I paired it with my army-green cargo skinnies (also from Express), a ruffled black blouse (Forever 21) and a new pair of black patent Steve Madden pumps.

Jacket & Cargo Pants: Express / Blouse: Forever 21 / Watch: Anne Klein / Pumps: Steve Madden

Lipstick: Maybelline "Peachy Scene"

 I'm in love with the detail and tailoring of this jacket. The delicate black ruffle trimmed with a single line of silver chain is trendy yet so eternally classic. I know this piece will be in my wardrobe for many years to come.

I hope you all have beautiful weekends! :)
