Utility Jacket + Pencil Skirt

utility1 utility2 utility3 utility4 utility5 utility6

Not to sound too self-satisfied, but I really like every outfit I wear. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t wear it. But there are some outfits I really love. (It’s kinda like: I like my Sketchers, but I love my Prada backpack – name that movie!)

This outfit was one I loved! I just got this utility jacket after looking high and low (but mostly low because I’m short and cheap) for the perfect one. This baby’s just the right shape and weight to wear all day, so rather than wait for the weekend to wear it with jeans, I wore it to work yesterday mixed with this floral pencil skirt. It was right up my alley because there’s nothing I love more than an unexpected mix! Except maybe a kitten washing its face. I mean you can’t beat that.

  1. I like my Sketchers, but I love my Prada backpack – name that movie!) – ’10 Things I hate About You’! Love that movie!! (And I love this outfit.)

    I’ve been eyeing the updated version of the Coach purse (the Wilson, I think). How roomy is it?

    • Ding ding! You win the prize! OK, there’s no prize…

      As for the bag, it fits my overstuffed wallet, phone, keys, mints, and lipstick. But just barely. If you like to keep lots of stuff with you at all times, it probably wouldn’t work.

  2. And so you should love your clothes and how you present yourself! Self love is so important in this world coz if you can’t love you then no one else will.
    I love the skirt, the print is awesome!

  3. Great movie quote! And I am digging the mix of the floral with the utility jacket…unexpected and yet perfect.


  4. But I LOVE my Sketchers!

    (must be because I don’t have a Prada backpack)
    (just kidding, I don’t have either)
    (Great movie)

    I am STILL on the hunt for a great utility jacket. I don’t know why I can’t commit!
