On deck

(Phillip Lim cadet jacket, DVF blouse, A|X jeans, John Fluevog shoes)

It was tough work indulging in the endless parade of food and fun activities onboard the cruise ship, but someone had to do it! I had a good time on the mini cruise for work and spent the first evening walking around on deck in my new favorite Phillip Lim jacket. I had agonized over this purchase for weeks but finally gave in. I find everything about it irresistable, from the bright red color to the military-style asymmetrical panels down the front. 

Since purchasing the jacket, I've spotted it in several fashion magazines, which has given me inspiration for new ways to wear it--over a white summery dress, with black leggings and boots, paired with gray trousers and shiny black oxfords. The jacket makes such a loud statement on its own that I need to pair it with simple pieces. If you've any ideas for new ways of working it into an outfit, I'd love to hear them!

You bought it!!!! I was debating if I should get the red or the navy. The red looks fantastic on you! The shoulder part...I love!

I love the coat...it's amazing! I actually like how you pair it with those jeans, the gray in the ribbon panels matches the gray in your jeans really well.

I can't count how many polyvore collages I've made using this piece. It's fantastic!! Now I just want to find a version of it in a thrift store and I'll be happy for life!
