My Short but Sweet Crop

Jacket— is cut shorter, hit at the hip, keeps the chill off and balance my body for a more streamlined look.
I like to think of it as the New Suit for the office. The bold pattern adds interest to my otherwise basic look and do double duty for a casual chic look too. I will definitely pair this jacket with jeans, tank and stilletos for that chic look....haha! I would like to add a few more crop jackets to my wardrobe, varying the style a little. I'm envisioning an enclosed neckline that's more coatlike with buttons, another with a potrait collar and play on the sleeves, by doing them with a lil flair. Oh the possibilities are endless...lol

I really like this on you - you are one of the few people I've seen that can really carry off that cropped jacket look very well! Very nice!

Awwww shucks you all got me blushing up a storm. Thanks for the awesome compliments.

I received a lot of compliments on the outfit. They know I'm a Loft fan and immediately thought I'd purchased it from the Loft, but not this time. I'm determined to sew more of my garments, but will continue snoop shopping there...lol I really like the Lofts styl and its a great place to get inspired.
