Seersucker. I have such a love-hate relationship with this material. On the one hand, I love it’s crisp, summery feel.  On the other, it’s often used to make such ugly clothes that I just can’t support it.

This jacket errs on the love side.  Since it’s not actually summer yet – despite my valiant efforts to wish it so – I paired the jacket with a cooler dress, drawing out the cream accents in an otherwise largely green and black piece.  The tan neutrals in the jacket allowed me to wear brown accessories, so I added one of my new pairs of shoes, and some gold to complete the look.

I really like this dress because it’s one-shouldered and has an interesting asymmetrical hemline.  But, since I often find myself wearing it to work, the one-shouldered detail is hidden.  One day, I will wear it as intended, but until then, it’s nice to get some professional use out of it, as well.
