Day Three: Denim & stripes.

Today's outfit is composed of item #16 (black icebreaker long sleeved T-shirt)  #19 (black & white striped jacket and #29 (dark denim jeans.) It was just fine for completing the major business of the day- Costco shopping. I give it a 7/10. There's plenty of room for improvement.

The jacket was one of those can't-live-without-it-to-the-point-I'll-pay-full-reatil-at-Anthropologie purchases. I like it but find it difficult to wear. The exaggerated shoulder line and short-ish length make me feel like I'm channeling a cruise ship maitre'd. The Disney pin lives on the lapel permanently which illustrates the fact that I see the jacket as more silly than sophisticated. I don't know that I've ever tried this jacket with anything other than jeans but I guess that's going to have to happen this month. Looking at the photos I'm wishing I owned a plain black V-neck dress with which to pair the jacket. Another thing to add to my steadily growing wish list.


  1. You are still so so stylish! Glad that you're back, I love studying your outfits. And you look radiant these days. Also, love the new hair color.

  2. Awww, thanks! I didn't know if anyone would find me again. It's nice to know you're there. Thanks for the encouragement. It really helps.

  3. I love the way you're tweaking and trying. I'm also a fan of the capsule wardrobe approach. I'm 30, by the way, and I don't think the shirt-and-boatneck-outfit looks dated. Just saying. :) Greetings from Norway!

  4. I like this outfit but probably think a Colbalt blue tee with this will bring out your baby blues. (at least I think your eyes are blue) I think the proportions are great in this outfit.

    1. Yep, blue eyes. And I have tons of blue sweaters and tops for just that reason! Funny, I don't think I have ever worn this jacket with anything but black underneath. Any solid color would be more interesting than black- what a good idea! Thanks!
