Candy Corn Jacket

Jacket - Michael Michael Kors, thrifted
Tee - Gap
Bracelets - vintage via Mom
Jeans - American Eagle, gift
Sandals - American Eagle, thrifted

This is the second thrifted jacket from this weekend. I wasn't planning to wear it today, but I couldn't help it. I saw this peeking out of the long sleeved shirt rack, the brilliant orange-red catching my eye. I picked it up. It's a gorgeous heavy weight linen. It reminds me a bit of the type of candy corn tipped in black/brown. D calls it my Flame jacket because it reminds him of fire. I wanted to wear it with my yellow skirt, but I was vetoed. I stuck with some jeans and heels.

I've got class tonight, and I'm feeling a bit run down. I'm ready for Thanksgiving break. If you are US-centric, what are your holiday plans?

  1. I swear you have the best thrifting luck! I wish we lived closer together so we could thrift together. I really like the jacket paired with the jeans. It does kind of look like candy corn :)

    I am looking forward to 4 days off work, eating tons of food, lounging in my sweatpants, and going shopping on Black Friday with my sister and all the other crazies! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Heather

  4. That is another adorable jacket, I love that!

    My holiday plans include spending T-day with my husband's family and then the Friday after is my birthday and we'll be celebrating with my family and seeing the new Muppet movie in the theatre because I'm a big fan.

  8. Oh, I love it love it love it! The undulating lines, the terrific colors, the big button. This jacket is amazing.

    My family is almost entirely deceased, so we spend Thanksgiving with old friends. I could use the break, too.

  9. I love, love the jacket! The colors are amazing.
    Thanksgiving will be spent at my sister's house where we will probably have deep fried turkey.
    That is tasty. I just don't like the trip out to the boonies for the dinner. I am a city girl to the core.
