I LOVE THIS OUTFIT! I can’t put it any simpler than that. When I first saw this image on Pinterest I knew, just knew, I had to re-create it.
Tartan and Leopard…such an unexpected combination but it works. Honestly, I have no words on how to describe how I felt wearing this outfit other than love. I would wear it every day. The Polka Dot Flock dress is so very comfortable. The Tartan shirt looks great with it and I just LOVE my MacAlister  booties.

Apples and Pencil Skirt has tried Tartan and Leopard too.

Have a Great Evening!

Second day in the office and I decided to wear jeans since I rarely do when traveling to offices. I love my Lucky Brand Jeans from last year. The denim is comfortable and stretchy and a nice dark wash.

The shirt is from J Crew Factory, the Stripe Silk Double-Pocket Blouse (Sz S). For accessories I added my new Loft Necklace, the Classic Pavé Link Bracelet from JC and my Ann Taylor Leopard Booties.

Nice and simple but I still felt dressy. The shirt is not the crepe-de-chine like the Retail version but it is 100% Silk and has a nice feel to it. I am finding that I am gravitating to these Silk button-down blouses as they are easy to style, wear and layer (eventually).

J Crew heard my calls for a necklace version of the Pavé bracelet. I knew if they did one it would be around that price point too. I can’t wait to see it in person. If it’s anything like the bracelet I know I’ll love it. I am not one to wear jewelry very often but I am finding that I am reaching for this bracelet a lot. LOVE IT!!

Have a Great Weekend!

We had one last holiday meal on Sunday and with the lovely cold front we received I was able to bundle up and wear some new purchases. I added the Velvet Schoolboy blazer again instead of a bulky coat because we would be in the car most of the day.

Now that we are finally done with the Thanksgiving holiday, we are preparing for a busy December. We have several parties and dinners, and hopefully, a quick weekend trip, all before Christmas.

Happy Cyber Monday!

Today is Husband’s birthday, along with my friend Cata. To celebrate we all went out to dinner last night and then to a few places for drinks after. The meal was delicious and Husband tried raw oysters for the first time. Our waiter surprised us with not one but two “Happy Birthday” desserts that were A-MAZ-ING!

Of course, going out with the possibility of dancing being involved, was the perfect reason to wear the Jules Dress in Wildcat. I really really like this print. I have the Natasha Top, which you saw in this post. I purchased and returned the Scoopneck Blouse and I just purchased two of the Airy Wool Scarf in Savannah, which I’ll be wearing today (see it on Tammy). I do have to exchange one of the scarves because there is a 4-inch snag in it (guess QC missed that one) but, as Tammy said, it is very versatile.

On to the outfit…

Husband and I turned out to be the night owls. After our friends went home, we made our 3rd after-dinner stop at a Cuban club near our house. I’ve been wanting to go there for years and Husband was in such rare form last night that he said yes to stopping by. We enjoyed ourselves and the live band entertainment and will certainly be back.

We have one last Thanksgiving meal today with some of my in-laws extended family. We are a little tired from our late night out but this is a once-a-year visit so we can’t back out.

Have a Great Day!

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? We were at my little brother’s house which was great for many reasons – turkey, dressing, desserts of all kinds, football, gossip. You name it we had it or talked about it. I had on a sweater dress that I Polyvore’d but changed because the weather was beautiful. I lost the cardigan about two hours into the day. It was just too nice and warm.

These are my “Tim Gunn” jeans. The pair I bought to be able to meet him. I had them altered in length a few weeks ago for heels and they are amazing. They have just the right amount of stretch and accommodated all my Thanksgiving eating without an issue. I was comfortable all day.

Today, I was up by 4:30 a.m. thinking about going to Anthropologie at 6 but I just couldn’t bring myself to actually leave the house even though it is only 10 minutes down the road from me. I did get online and ordered the Fire Ants Maxi Dress. I’ve never tried it on so I’m hoping the size 6 will fit.

My in-laws took us to lunch for Husband’s birthday which is Sunday. He was actually born on Thanksgiving Day way back in ’69. Again, gorgeous mid-70 degree weather decided my outfit.

I hoped you got some good deals, if you braved the shopping madness today.
