I'm not generally a wearer of prints, or plaids for that matter, but when perusing the clothing at Steinmart over the week-end during one of my cabin fever rages that are only cured by shopping, I came across a super neat plaid jacket.
It has 3/4 sleeves which are usually a turn off for me, but after trying this jacket on I decided it was a keeper *a steal at $49.99* that I would definitely wear during this transitional time of the year when layering is a must for anyone living in a four season setting.
I decided to pair it up with my black stretchy pants from Macys, of which I have three of four pairs, the Inc Brand. Love them!
Along with my old... really old....Naturalizer leather boots,
and a black long sleeved shirt by Alfani at Macys, as well as the leather Minnetonka hat that I wear every day,
and a few pieces of jewelry in gold, silver and brown to feminize it all,
and I was set for the day and realized that I had totally made the right decision with this plaid jacket purchase. with it's black, gold/mustard, cream, brown and even a dash of purple/eggplant.
At my wrist is my Michael Kors gold runway watch, a twist bracelet with gold, brown and other wooden beads,
and at my neck, a silver beaded necklace, my favorite gold charm necklace from the 1980's that every girl had hanging from her neck, back when gold was totally affordable, and also my favorite wooden necklace given to me by my sister from one of her business trips oh so very long ago.
Now I was ready for the day, and dressing for it is something I do nearly every day,
because each and every day should be treated in a special way, especially since our two straight weeks of rain is now gone and the sun is once again shining from blue, clear skies.
Savor the sunny days.
