This afternoon’s Friday Frock is a slight departure from the norm, a little out-of-left-field, if you will. In fact, today’s frock is not a frock, but a jacket.
Waterfall Jacket – French Connection, £155
There are two reasons for this. Number one, I believe in great quality, investment basics that form the backbone of your wardrobe. They might not be cheap but they should be infinitely wearable and I think this jacket is just that. And secondly, *whisper it* I just didn’t fancy writing about a frock today.
I bought this jacket last week, for the Christening I attended. I couldn’t find a season appropriate dress that I wanted to buy, and so I opted for a long time favourite from my wardrobe. I actually call it my engagement dress as it’s really that old – I wore it for several occasions when we were telling people about/celebrating our engagement and as such it’s in lots of happy pictures.
I’d seen a jacket in Warehouse that I liked the look of but when I tried it on the quality was appalling – a nice shape, but unlined, crumpled and the lapels wouldn’t sit right due to the poor construction. I was deflated but decided to keep looking for something similar. I eventually happened across this one in French Connection and it is beautiful. Just the right shape, it hangs beautifully, is cleverly tailored and bang on trend in a nude tone.
Just so you’re all not wholly disappointed in me, here’s a snap of said jacket and outfit, in action so to speak. (Maybe this can count as the ‘friday frock‘?) I think it’s going to look awesome with my pink trews 😉
Happy Friday Folks – come back tomorrow for the Saturday Survey and a very special sneak peek of what’s to come next week…
