What I Wore Today

Jacket

I love how this jacket looks different from each side, how detailed the buttons are, and the random pink bow on the bottom.  This was one of the awesome 80’s items I put in my fill-a-bag-for-$5 frenzy at the church rummage sale.

Jacket: Louis Feraud, from the St. Marks Treasure Sale in Minneapolis; Jeans: alloy.com; Pumps: Sheikh, from the Goodwill; Earrings: Salvation Army in Evansville, IN; Sunglasses: F21.

We went away for the weekend to a bed & breakfast in Benicia.  It was hot.  I just really felt like wearing fall clothes, though.

Sweater: Bloom; Top: alloy.com; Leggings: Kohl’s; Boots: Clark’s; Bag: coachoutlet.com; Earrings: Walgreen’s; Sunglasses: Buffalo Exchange.

I like this dress because it was so off trend when I bought it (four years ago). It looks like the Renaissance Fair.
