Before our trip, I went shopping for some new clothes and had all of my outfits planned out. Then I checked the forecast a couple days before we were leaving and saw that the temperature was going to be a bit chillier than I had expected - like high 60s to mid 70s. For this Ohio Valley girl, that is not summer at all. Don't get me wrong though, I totally welcomed the cooler temps and zero humidity with open arms. It did make me realize that I had a gaping hole in my wardrobe in the form of a denim jacket, however. I can't say I've ever needed one before, but since I already had my day-to-day looks ready I wanted something that would go with everything.
A (very successful) trip to Nordstrom Rack solved that in a snap! And now I have this jacket for the two, three days tops when it will be acceptable to wear in Louisville. This dress was comfy all day and long enough to not have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions in the windy city, if you know what I mean. I'm really looking forward to wearing it at the office, too.
