Neutral + neutral + POP! + smaller pop! + leopard print = today. Let me talk about my pants for a quick second: I love these pants. I have them in khaki, too. They're just ever-so-slightly too long to even wear with a small wedge, but since they're casual khakis, I'm not going to pair them with a heel. I am kind of at a loss as to what to wear them with, to be quite honest. Additionally, I have complained about this before but I do NOT understand why Gap thinks someone who wears an 8R, that's R for REGULAR, has an inseam of around 34". NO. And they're getting worse - my husband, who wears a 33"x36" so we always have to order his jeans online, the last pair he got he has to roll up at the bottom because they're too long. I don't understand that at all as I know he has not shrunk so shouldn't 36" be, you know, 36"?
I ordered this scarf the week before last off of amazon.com - it was all of $5.92. Comes in four other colors in addition to this pink. I have to say, for as cheap as it was, it is rather awesome. I ironed it today without it running or anything so that in and of itself was impressive. Needless to say I l-o-v-e this shade of pink! It's so bright. Maybe I should wear it again next Tuesday! Oh - idea: I could double up this scarf with my red scarf and be THAT mom at the Valentine's parties at school! Yes, it is decided. (My poor children.)
Holy moly do I not miss that blue carpet.
So I did something today that I have not done on the regular since I was a sophomore in high school - I went thrifting! "Thrifting" in this case meaning "went to the closest Goodwill" because we have zero thrift stores aside from Goodwill in this area. Anyway - I didn't have much time because I had to go pick up my oldest from school, but I came across a MAJOR find while perusing the blazer section. Witness:
That, my friends, is a perfect 100% wool, completely lined, Jones New York coat. Yes! I must have inspected this thing for a solid five minutes - looking at seams, buttons, the lining - it is impeccable!
I know it's a bit hard to tell from the picture but the base color is burgundy with pink woven through. Love! Best part - set me back all of $3.68 with tax! Even if I have to pay another $12 to get it dry cleaned, I think a Jones New York coat for around $16 is pretty flippin' sweet, if I do say so myself. Like I told my mother-in-law earlier, I am SO going back tomorrow morning after I drop off the wee one at preschool when I have more time to browse.
That's all for me, folks. Homework awaits!
