Jacket by Tahari

I picked up this Tahari jacket at a Los Angeles thrift shop and haven't put it down since. I am amazed at how many ways this utility piece can enhance your wardrobe for so many occasions! This is my third installment of how to style a black tuxedo jacket. Now that temperatures may (hopefully) start to cool off, a black jacket is a must. 

I picked up this fun emoji purse in the Los Angeles fashion district. I put on some black shorts, a white tee and some Converse but the outfit needed a little finishing. Time for my tuxedo jacket and I'm off to Sunday Funday with friends!

For this outfit I started with my favorite jeans and white blouse. I added a long fringe belt, my black jacket and pumps. This outfit went from simple to a fashionista's night out.

I love this little gray bubble skirt. I added a graphic t-shirt, high socks and boots. My tuxedo jacket finishes off the outfit to make it ready for a casual dinner date.

It's September, so the Houston galas are upon us. I love this classic year-round white dress by Keepsake. To give the whole outfit a tuxedo feel, I added lots of pearls and my long black jacket.
