A few days ago, I posted a roundup of chore jackets , and wanted to show you the one I finally selected. Lightweight jackets (and sweaters) are workhorses in my wardrobe in Spring, and often well into Summer.
The colors in the jacket are actually a little more subdued than they appeared on the retailer’s website. The “red” is actually a reddish brown, and the background color is off-white, with maybe just the palest hint of blush. It doesn’t quite work with white jeans (IMO), but does with blue denim. I’m wearing size S.
I’ve had this Clare V “Bar Huitres” (Oyster Bar) tee for a couple of years. I really liked it, except for the crew neck, so I never wore it. I was just about to give it away, when on impulse I went at it with a pair of scissors and removed the neck band. Now it’s perfect! (I don’t mind the slightly jagged edge, gives it character. 😉 ) Moral of the story: don’t be afraid to “customize” to make something work.
I’ve had this whimsical bag for a couple of years now, am still enjoying it. It’s lightweight and easy to carry. And it’s easy to see and retrieve items from inside.
I picked up these leopard mules last summer. They’re very comfortable and I love the little “zing” that leopard print adds to an outfit.
A Little Surprise…
