I like to explore new looks and will try unfamiliar things. This jacket, for example, is not something I normally wear but it has tiny speckles of bright color that call to me. Plus, wearing it helps me to understand the joys and difficulties of dressing for middle-age.
I like the cropped length, single button and general design of the jacket. On the other hand, this outfit almost makes me look like Debbie, the 38-year old real estate broker who helped your parents sell their home when they moved to a smaller condo. Debbie's dress is too short for her age but she's trying so darn hard to be liked!
I'm presenting the jacket two ways, first with pretty pink pants and second with the too-short dress. Which do you prefer?
