Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I’m doing just a quick post because as you read this, I am heading back to Michigan. I won’t be able to respond to your comments right away but know that I always enjoy them and they make my day!
Anyway, this jacket has been a surprising workhorse this spring. I wear it all the time in North Carolina because it’s a lighter fabric and easy to layer underneath plus can be zipped up! Apple shaped woman know that this is a rarity so here is one of those jackets that deserves pointing out! It’s also available in a pretty light blue and in plus size.
I like the length of the jacket plus the little rivets on the pocket gives it some style so I don’t look like I’m wearing a boring old black jacket. It’s got these big collars too that lay flat and are perfect for a scarf like I styled it the last time here.
I’m wearing it with my sleeveless sheath top from last summer that you’ve seen a couple of times like here and these pants from White House Black Market that have limited sizes in regular and petite but they seem to have some similar pairs here. I’m wearing a size 14.
I said I would report on these shoes that are all wool and have been claimed to be the most comfy shoes yet — I agree! I’ve had them about 6 months (you’ve seen them before here) and the wool is still soft and is still holding up well even though I wear them a ton and even went hiking in them twice (up and down steep hills for several hours!). My only complaint is they don’t have much tread, so they really are for sidewalk/floor/yard walking and not so much for any place slippery. I see the company has started making a new type of shoe made out of trees (?!) so I may have to check them out in a light color for warmer weather.
And yes, the pretty little pink purse hitting way above it’s cost. I’ve definitely gotten my cost per wear out of it!
Where the heck am I you ask? I’m at the McColl Center for Art and Innovation in downtown (uptown they call it here) Charlotte. It was an old church that burned down but the stone structure remained and now they use it for art exhibits and artists in residence. Dave and I were mesmerized (ok, I was) by a video of male ballet dancers who were push dancing (that’s what I call it!) done by one of their visiting artists Javier de Frutos. If you’re curious you can see it here.
Let’s do this Monday!
