You know, the thing about documenting one's style/outfits all the time is that sometimes the pictures just don't come out like you had hoped. Honesty, coming at you :) Though I realize you probably can't tell like I can. I always have a trillion shots to choose from, but sometimes I can only find a few I like enough to share. I need to get more sleep or something, you know like, beauty sleep. Is that a real thing? The dark circles under my eyes seem to think so! I did (do) really like this outfit though, you know me and my love of plaid.
This time I paired my newish plaid suit jacket with the black skirt from my also still newish black vintage suit skirt. That's the best thing about plaid, you can mix and match all over the place! I'm starting to think I should have made the neckline a bit higher on this jacket and done a third button, but...oh well. The fun sparkling rhinestone scimitar/sword brooch is a new acquisition. I am a big fan of sword brooches now, though with the gold one I've got, and this new sparkler, I think my own collection is complete unless something crazy amazing pops up one day. The hat I have on here is an oldie but goodie, black velvet is always a favorite of mine.
I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing leaves on trees again someday later in spring. Bare branches aren't the best backdrop! Still, I leave soon for my mini vacation to California next week so I'll be admiring palm trees in no time ;)
