How to look posh in an Adidas jacket

How to style an Adidas jacket

I love the color of the Adidas jacket. When I saw it, I had to have it. It called my name so to say. I bought it with the intent to wear it as a cover-up with my other clothes. My sport – ballroom dancing – does not require a jacket like this one.

In the outfit, I wanted to get the tension of tough and delicate. Thus, I paired the jacket with my lace skirt. For a top, I rioted my hubby’s closet for a rip-knit tank shirt. I was lucky to find one that had a great fit on me.

To stay with the sort of California Casual vibe I added my black wood plateau sandals. They are delicate with respect to the strappy leather bands, but tough with respect to the wood plateau sole and heels.

Finishing styling touches

To finish the outfit I added the belt that I made myself in a recreational class in college. I made it from a piece of leather sole, a small stripe of pony hair brown leather that holds the silver closure. The closure plate is embellished with little dots that I bored into the plate. Over the years, the pony-hair holding stripe lost some of the hairs. This distress from wear makes the belt even more interesting than it was when I had finished the project back in college.

As last finishing touches, I went for a messy up-do, as if I just came from a run on the beach, and I added a wood watch. It just looks so good and unique and it repeats the wood of the sandals.

Top of the World Style linkup-party

Welcome to the 67th Top of the World Style fashion linkup party. Thanks to all you stylish ladies who linked up last week. Your lovely outfits were so exciting and inspiring.

The Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav was Cat. You clicked her post the most. She is the instragramer – is that a word (?) – at Cat in Amsterdam. I loved her caption “Shhhh, if you listen closely, you can still hear this dress calling my name.” There are often items that call my name too, for instance the jacket in today’s post. 😉 I guess every fashionista and fashionister has made that experience.

Terri at Meadow Tree caught my attention with her colorful maxi dress. She became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. I wonder whether there is one color on Earth missing in the pattern of this beautiful dress.
