What I'd Wear Wednesday

What I'd wear today if I could: this belted jean jacket from a catalog called La Redoute. I guess. But it's not that simple.

First, at the mall last week, I passed a manequin at Macy's wearing an amazing belted jean jacket. It was in the Style & Co. section. It's still 97 degrees outside, but a person can look forward to cool weather, I figured. But could I find that jean jacket anywhere on the racks? No. And I couldn't find a salesperson nearby to ask.

So I looked up the jacket on the site. No luck.

Then, I found this jacket on La Redoute. It's not the same as the jacket I fell in love with -- this really looks more like a shirt. I prefer the Style & Co. jacket, but I don't have a picture to show you. (Guess I need to start taking my camera to the mall now.)

But anyway, I like the look. I can't wait for fall. I'm ready for 97-degree-days to be over!

Love this, and love the color. I'm ready for fall too. We finally got central air this year, but I'm ready to shut it off!

That is very cute. I bet it looks really good on. It looks like something that would make someone look thinner.

Ooh, you've got to get that. Very cute. Afraid it would make my (overweight) 5' 3" frame look even more squat.

I LOVE jean jackets. Actually, I love all things denim - jeans, jean skirts, jean trousers, etc.

I love the belted denim jacket. Jean jackets have been around for a little too long. This one's got a little style!

Totally cute! (Too hot to wear here today, though.)

I would call the manager of the store's clothing department, or the general manager, and explain the situation. S/he may be able to help you find the one you REALLY want!

I love LaRedoute! I have had a belted denim trench coat I wear every fall for like 5 years. Somehow it has stayed in style cause I constantly get compliments.
