Outfit of the Day

Hi everyone, sorry I've been gone the past few days.  Here are some recent outfits.

I think you either want fantasy in a blog, or you want reality.  I love looking at some of the high fashion and high end blogs, but in the end, I'd much rather see what real people who are kind of like me are wearing.  And I hope you like that too.

Jacket - Gap. Shirt-ANA at JC Penney. Skirt - Ann Taylor via ebay.  Bag- Sak Silverlake Flap in Teak. Gap flats.

I found this jacket tagged $7 at my local Gap. Must have been a return or something.  The belt actually hit at my waist.  I'm short waisted so things with a self belt normally hit me too low, below my waist. It breaks one of my fundamental rules: no pockets on the boobs. These are pretty flat and placed high so they are passable.  One thing about rules is that they are made to be broken!

I think Sak leather bags are way underrated.  I got this one from Overstock, but you can find them under $100 on similar sites like QVC and Amazon as well as in department stores.  It is a well made bag with soft but substantial leather.  The Teak is a great cognac color.  I can't believe I chose brown for this but I am trying to branch out from my usual black.  I now have quite a lot of brown for summer.  And it's true, cognac does go with everything, even black.  I like the cross body style to give my shoulders a break form big heavy bags.

Do you have "rules" for yourself about clothes? Do you break them?'

Have you tried cognac yet?  Boots are next on my cognac list.


  1. ooooh me likey! Love the jacket, skirt and bag! Really love the bag! Very nice. :-)

    I have a leather cognac from Coach.

  2. Great find on the jacket! I love cognac leather. A black bag is probably one item I will never own. I don't remember how I came upon your blog, but I do like it so far.
