OOTD: Navy With Cognac

I've had this jacket since Jan. of 2012.  It's one of my favorite pieces and I probably only wear it about 3 times per year.  Not enough.
As usual, I'm thinking that I really should go through my clothes and get rid of all but my very favorite things.  Even then, I'd have more than enough left.

Other favorite pieces I'm wearing are these shoes and purse.  I love the color.  The shoes are buttery soft and comfy.  The structure of the purse is my preferred style, it feels just right to carry, and holds my insert bag with my things perfectly.

OOTD: Starring... Great Shoes

I wore a version of this outfit here, but I'm now wearing jeans instead of khaki pants and I've switched up the accessories as well as the shoes.
 The shoes!  Can we talk about the shoes?!  I am in love with them.  They are my favorite backless style and so comfortable.  To me, they are soooo pretty and in a favorite color of teal/marine blue/aqua.  They are adorned with darling sequins, gems, and pearls.  They were only $5.60 and look brand new.
Wearing this outfit made me feel nearly as wonderful as Ally at Shybiker feels in her maxi skirt.  :)

A Favorite Tee

Hi, there!  We just got back from an out of state trip to visit my family so I've been behind in posting lately.  
This was an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago and it's one of my favorites.  A lightweight floral print tee with jacket and dark denim jeans.
The shoes, which seemed fine last year, were not quite as comfortable this year due to the steep incline.  As much as I love them, I decided to donate this pair.
We are considering another possible move and so I'm once again in purge mode.

Wearing A Dress As A Shirt

I am most comfortable in a longer style top and so when I saw this striped garment, in ocean blue-green colors I love, in the dress section I thought it would be perfect as a shirt on me. 
 I don't believe I've ever purchased a dress to wear as a top, but I've enjoyed wearing it this way so much that I am keeping my eye out for another one to wear like this as well.  So far I have not found just the right one, but now I know what to look for.
This day I wore the dress/top with my khaki pants, but I've since worn it with jeans (switching up a few other elements) and will show that soon.  I like it both ways.

dress/top $6.99 Natori

Palazzo Pants With Butterfly Print Top

 This butterfly top is quite sheer and has lace sleeves.  I wear a white tank top underneath it.  I love the print and it has a bit of sparkle.
My new cardigan is lightweight, semi sheer, with mid length sleeves, and I'll be able to wear it many months of the year.

My purse and shoes just so happen to have the same white stitching.  A perfect match!
