And I know I'll wear it with jeans (my staple!). But, I want to dress it up, possibly for a wedding in a couple of weeks. But I havn't been able to find anything online.

It's a kind of silk material I suppose, and a deep navy. I love it smile

Can you suggest a dress? Better still, shoes too?!

The dress on the link you gave us might look nice with it smile It has navy in it and a nice bold pattern. The cream flowers will lighten the look. Then shoes are easy peasy, navy or cream. Are you going to wear a hat?

The jacket looks lovely.

Thanks Mouse. That's a great website. I'm also on a quest for a dress and they have loads of options.

I love that jacket! might get one myself,. what the sizing like? Any free delivery codes going around?

Thanks for the suggestions. I went in search of the items today to see them in the flesh, but couldn't find any of them! So I came home with a bargain dress that doesn't fit and is far to young for me!

The jacket comes in either a petite or a regular. I'd say it's pretty true to size. I squeezed into the eight, but am more comfortable in the ten, which pretty much reflects where I am at the moment.
I saw it in two other colours today if you're interested. One was silver (very weddingy) and the other was more of a pewter, which I was very tempted to get!

So, on with the search....

I didn't mention, I'm hour glass, can't do high neck, can't go above the knee and it's going to be very warm/hot when I where it. Oh yeah, strong jewel colours, or white with a some navy detail to bring in the jacket would be good.
