Hello everyone! It has been a few days since I've posted, and for that I apologize. We've been through this song and dance before, so I'll spare you the excuses and get straight to the good stuff. I did promise you more Fall inspired posts featuring dresses and knee socks, and obviously this post is no exception. This is an outfit I wore out to brunch on Sunday, and the weather has been absolutely perfect. It's the typical California Fall where it has been cold enough to wear scarves and jackets, but still warm enough to wear a dress without having to pile on the layers to keep from freezing (what is freezing, anyway?). Speaking of jackets, the absolutely beautiful faux leather number I am wearing above is the newest addition to my wardrobe, and I am completely smitten. I have been on the hunt for THE perfect faux leather jacket to serve as my Fall/Winter go-to coat, and I finally found this gorgeous winner at... wait for it........... ROSS. Let me start off by saying I have absolutely no shame in purchasing anything at a "discount" store. You can find gold ANYWHERE, and Ross is a prime example. My husband and I like to go on occasion to look for discount items for the home and kitchen, but I have never really taken the time to hunt for anything in their clothing section. This past weekend I decided to give it a whirl as we had a bunch of free time (so why the heck not?) and like I do, I stumbled across the jacket of my dreams. Okay I'm probably being a bit dramatic, but I know ya'll know how it feels to find something you've been searching and scouring and pining for and when and if you finally do, it practically seems like it was meant for you. The jacket was over 60% off the original value of $160, is a size medium, fits me perfectly, and has zippers and buttons and snaps in all of the most adorable, perfect places. I could go on forever, but I won't. It's a damn fine jacket.
Thank you so much for peeking on over and reading my blog. We all need little creative outlets here and there to take our minds away from the everyday stresses and worries of life, and this is one of mine. :) I really do enjoy posting my outfit creations and personal style endeavors for any and all who are interested, seeking inspiration, bored, curious, all of the above. For whatever reason you read my posts, I want you to know how much I appreciate you! :) I hope everyone has a beautiful week as well as a fun, safe and happy Halloween!
Love to you all. =^.^=
