So the velvet-thon continues into the new year...

I bought this gorgeous Parker jacket two years ago in Chicago, and other than loosing a few beads along the way, it has served me so well. It's swingy and relaxed yet elegantly edgy and sophisticated, which makes it a great day-to-night piece. I love its vintage appeal, and I can say confidently that this a jacket I won't outgrow. I'm already picturing how I'll "professionally" style this jacket with slacks and dresses when I start my internship. I put "professional" in quotes because you can probably imagine that my idea of professional is far from typical fitted monochrome power suits. Keep an eye out for my new corporate style series soon to come! 

In the meantime, shop my favorite pieces from Parker below.
