Remixing my floral shirtdress as a jacket

I love actress Ruth Negga’s style, especially this recent outfit of hers featuring a long, ornately embroidered jacket paired with black skinny pants. I loved the juxtaposition of the long, patterned jacket with the black outfit foundation. I thought, “Hmmmm… I could recreate a similar look.”

So I styled my short-sleeved floral shirtdress over a long-sleeved black turtleneck, and I zipped up the top part but left the bottom loose like Negga’s original inspiration look. I could have gone with my black pumps but instead switched them out for my black ankle boots that morning, just because. The heart wants what it wants, y’all. ♥

I have remixed this floral shirtdress as a long jacket before, seen here last summer. I really liked changing up the look this time by having the shirtdress partially zipped up. I also felt super long ‘n’ lean — my favorite aesthetic! — with the black skinny jeans + booties.

The backdrop for these photos is a brick school building in east Tacoma, a school that closed down years ago. And as you can see, it was VERY rainy that day we took photos. We actually took these photos on a Sunday afternoon out with my hubby, and I remixed this outfit the next day for work with my black long-sleeved tee and patent leather pumps.
