Hi gals! And welcome to Dressed for My Day. I hope to provide a little outfit inspiration today. I’m sharing a beautiful black floral blouse paired with blue jeans and topped with my black leather moto jacket. I’d say this combo is flirty and fierce!
Let’s start with the leather jacket. I bit the bullet during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and invested in a genuine leather jacket. While it was significantly reduced, it was still an investment purchase. But to me that’s the best use of that sale. Mine is sold out, but there is a wide selection to choose from. In fact, I’ve got a shopping widget full of genuine and faux leather jackets below.
My best suggestion is to read the reviews and size accordingly. Sometimes sleeves run tight. That was my biggest challenge, and I ended up with a jacket that has an elastic panel in the sleeves to allow for more room and flexibility.
I also suggest choosing a leather or suede jacket in a neutral that works well with most of your wardrobe. And remember, you can easily wear a brown jacket with black accessories and vice versa.
Really, the star of this outfit, though, is this lovely dark floral blouse. It’s a sheer chiffon blouse with a lining in the bodice. The colors are beautiful and I especially appreciate the dainty smocking and ruffles at the wrists and neck. This feminine blouse comes in three other color combinations, but I’m wearing the black in a small.
I tucked my pretty blouse only into the front of my favorite AG jeans (marked down 33%!). Then I added my black suede booties and carried my black leather hobo. My bag is no longer reduced, but here’s a vegan hobo that’s a sweet deal and oh so cool.
My black suede booties run true to size. They’re a comfortable 1 3/4″ heel and come in several other pretty shades.
I love having pretty blouses like this in my fairly casual wardrobe. They mix easily with both jeans and dress slacks or skirts. And they’re perfect for church or a date night.
This is the kind of outfit I often wear for a night out or special gathering with friends. It feels pretty, contemporary and comfortable.

Blessed for My Day
We have a choice, you know. Even though we are saved by grace and promised an eternal home with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, we still have a choice about how we live out our days on earth. We can follow His commands and serve Him well…or not.
But let’s remember, sister, that when we choose to do things our way instead of clinging to Him and obeying His voice, there will be consequences. There have been times in my life when I lived contrary to what I knew was right simply because it “felt” better. But those choices caught up with me and cost me something further down the road. Today let’s choose to hold fast to Him. He really does know what’s best.
You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear him and keep his commandments and obey his voice, and you shall serve him and hold fast to him. ~ Deuteronomy 13:4
