I've worn this scarf several times before, but never with the print of the lion visible.  After viewing these photos I did make some adjustment of the scarf.  I tied it around in back and continued the asymetrical drape over both shoulders, but kept the lion head situated in about the same place.  As it is in these photos, it looks as if I have my dinner napkin tucked in and I'm getting ready to chow down.  haha
Sometimes that realize this or that is a little off and you can correct it.  Problem is I usually don't get photos of the improvement.  But that's okay.  :)

A Cute Little Jacket + Booties = Sass!

I've never worn this style of jacket and didn't know if it would suit my body type, but it was only $1.29 so I thought it wouldn't hurt to try it.  And I actually love it!  You know how it is when something makes you feel good and you feel like your sass quotient goes up a notch?  I felt a little like that while wearing this outfit.
I looked up "sass" in the urban dictionary and it was described as this:  "Attitude, not backing down to the man, putting the smack down, opening a can of Bruce Lee."  
Yeah...that about sums up my momentary inner demeanor in this jacket. hahaha   Being able to put the smack down for only $1.29 is pretty reasonable, I'd say.
(Of course the booties may have had a little something to do with it too.)     :)

Military Style Jacket And Cupcakes!

I had totally planned on wearing my deep plum (burgundy) jeans and dark brown shoes with the top half of this outfit, but grabbed for these pieces (tan pants/loafers) without thinking.  Oh, well.  Another outfit for another day.  I like how this turned out anyway. 
 I didn't do anything special...just ran to the grocery store and baked Harvest Apple Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting.  I was pleasantly surprised at just how super yummy these turned out!  I never bake because I'm just not good at it and don't really enjoy I normally leave the baking to my husband who is marvelous at it.
I got the recipe here and here.  I started following Anna's blog a couple of months ago and now watch her youtube channel and also must watch the daily episodes of her youtube channel with her whole family here.  I normally am not really into reality tv shows, but for some reason I need to see what cute little Emilia is up to each day.  And now they're expecting a little boy! :)
I watch a few others on occasion that are about fashion and make up, but no others about people's daily lives. ha
Do you have any youtube video series that you follow and especially like?  Feel free to leave me the link in comments and I'll check them out.  I love finding new blogs/videos.

Navy Herringbone: Unbuttoned, Buttoned, Belted

I wore this last week, but I'm not as crazy about this blazer as I thought I'd be.  I'm going to eventually try it out with maybe some white pants and khaki colored pants too and see if I like that look any better.  I think I'll try adding a scarf also.
 I started out with the blazer unbuttoned, then I buttoned it...and as I was getting ready to walk out the door I realized it had belt loops on the sides, so I quickly grabbed a dark navy/purple? belt (the red I tried clashed with the sweater) and was on my way to work.
