This great piece was something I found in Paris during a trip a few months ago. The store "Scarlett" is a vintage place I make sure to go every single time, and they never disappoint! My sister and I have racked up quite a collection from there! Scarlett herself carefully selects pieces to sell in her shop and it turns out, we have very similar tastes! I love almost everything she has there. And the wonderful thing about her collection- the quality of her pieces.
This beautiful jacket is actually part of a 2- piece skirt suit from Chanel circa 1980s. I have worn the jacket here as outerwear and unbuttoned rather than as a suit jacket- one day I will wear it properly to show just how beautiful the cut is. The jacket also has a small matching belt that goes with it and when the whole suit is worn together, it looks absolutely divine. And please take a close look at those amazing gold buttons!
The white is very fresh and is a nice contrast to the slightly more masculine and military feel of the jacket. The mint green jeans are a nod to this season's trend of pastels and soft colour palettes.

Nothing has to be worn the way it's "supposed" to be worn! Add character to any piece by wearing it your way!
