I realize today I was wearing pretty much all of my favorite things:
1. a nipped in, fun jacket
2. a vintage owl necklace
3. skinny jeans
(well when am I not wearing footwear with a heel?)
Pretty soon this jacket will have to go into storage because its very much a summertime piece. It has no lining, its a very lightweight linen-y type fabric, and maybe its a summertime color palate.
However, even if its almost out of season, it's making its debut on this here lil' blog of mine. Basically because I got it off the sale rack about 3 weeks ago. I couldn't resist, I loved the stripe-y action, the narrow waist, the color. What can I say, try as I might, I'm a sucker for a fun jacket.
Jackets are my go-to when I want to do the jeans thing at work but not look like a total slacker; face it-jackets really polish off an otherwise casual outfit to a tee!
I'm also wearing a little owl that doesn't usually make his way out of the jewelry box. Mostly he's stuck in his little drawer for the most part because I actually forget about owning him quite a lot. He's not my usual owl that's for sure. But he is my newest of the vintage owls...
I got him in the Poconos when I went on that Memorial Day Wknd trip w/Mel
(good times, i need to get back there--fireworks superstore and cheap beer!)
And I just got my suede booties repaired. These are the ones that snapped at the heel last week when I was walking out of DSW (again, thankfully I had just bought 2 new pairs of boots so I made a quick change-a-roo). This pair of booties is one of my faves...I like the color mostly, its a mushroom type shade. The heel was a little too tall from the last time I got it repaired (imagine that, I am claiming a heel to be "too tall"), this is why I think it snapped to begin with. So this time I asked the cobbler man to make it just about 1/8" less tall (yes, 1/8"! Seriously, is that even going to make a difference? I can't believe myself sometimes)

Oh, and Happy Day for sure!!!!!!!!!!
According to my countdown widget--FALL HAS OFFICIALLY ARRIVED!
(although about 2 days ago I realized that I am pretty certain the countdown was set a day too early, and Fall doesn't really officially start until tomorrow....honestly who knows, let's just get summer the heck out of here already!)
