A Winning Jacket

golf5golf7golf3golf6golf2


Jacket? Vintage Pendleton, from Jessie Silk shirt? Thrifted Pants? Primark Shoes? Ralph Lauren, DSW Bracelet? Crazy lady at The Ex Clutch? Thrifted

Matt pointed out that this jacket is almost an exact replica of the winner's jacket of The Masters. Indeed it is. However, is their jacket vintage Pendelton? Didn't think so...
It is cruel irony that my new favourite green jacket is so reminiscent of a sport that I am so horrible at; golf. Well, in general, I am pretty horrible at a lot of sports but golf is my worst. And it's frustrating because I should like it, someone drives me around in a cart and as a bonus, adult beverages are driven around in a cart to me... What is not to like? It is my pride that gets hurt the most. I feel like my summer landscape muscles should be able to hit that ball with considerable force but... I just can't seem to connect with the ball. On the outside, I cover up my frustration with an airy giggle and another drink (which doesn't help the game, does it?) while on the inside I am cursing my brothers for getting the larger genetic share of hand-eye co-ordination. But I got the green jacket and in the end, that is all that matters, right?

WHOA!! Favorite outfit ever. Except now I am partially sad b/c I just thrifted the exact same blazer in navy blue, and I was on top of the world, until I see that it exists in the most beautiful green. I HATE YOU NEVERMIND I'M OVER IT.

You have found my dream jacket. I might convert to wearing blazers instead of cardigans if this was in my closet. Best color ever. Green is my favorite color, just so you know. In case you wanted to give it as a gift or something.

hahaha masters jacket, it's a great jacket and I love it paired with the pink top and black. I giggled at your jumping photo, thanks for sharing that one

I suck at golf too, and have no beautiful green jacket... It's funny, because ever since college I've associated the pink and green color combination with sorority girls that decorated their dorm rooms in these two colors, floor to ceiling, and had bedspreads, t-shirts and welcome signs to match. It was like someone had vomited Pepto Bismol all over a pristine lawn. This, however, is infinitely more sophisticated. I actually may be warming up to it now... In other words, you look fabulous!

You are such a HOT TAMALE! And the best part is that I don't think you even know your true hotness factor. It would show in your face if you knew. You'd put on a poutier, haughtier expression or something. You go girl!

Woot woot! Glad you liked your pressie. ;)

When I first saw the darling photos, I thought you looked a little like a very hot, very blonde, super-chic watermelon.

Feeling a little like a lima-bean today, so that's meant to be a compliment.
