True blue

Woo hoo it is Friday!  I thought that my first full work week of 2013 would drag, but actually I was very busy this week, so it kind of flew by!  No complaints here!  And yes, no pants week is over.  I just really wanted to wear jeans today!  As I mentioned yesterday, we were supposed to get rain and well, we did get rain.  In fact it started yesterday when I stopped at the grocery store after work.  Cold rain and tights?  Ick.  And it's still raining today, so pants were the choice for today.

I saw a similar outfit to this in my latest issue of Glamour, except it was a cardigan instead of a pullover, but when I saw it I figured this sweater I just got in the bag from my cousin would work instead.

I also finally got a chance to photograph the coat I bought over my Christmas break.  It's not super heavy, so it's good for a day like today that isn't as warm outside.  I love that it feels like a vintage coat, but it isn't actually vintage.  It's fun.

And then in the next picture, there is this bag.  First Coach bag I ever bought myself and I got it on Ebay, so it was not too expensive.  But, I waver on this one each year and think I might send it on down the line - but then I get in a mood like today where it looks cute with my outfit and I just want to use it.  So, I guess I'm glad I didn't get rid of it after all!  I have to laugh too, I mentioned this very early in my blogging days here that whenever I use this bag I get more compliments from men than anyone else!  I get a chuckle out of that.

 Sweater - Christopher and Banks, from cousin
Jeans - Old Navy
Necklace - S&D
Bag - Coach via Ebay
Boots - Mossimo, Target
Coat - Nine West, consignment

So does anyone have exciting weekend plans?  Because I'm more up to it than I was last weekend I may go adventuring a bit with the Pants Monkey tomorrow.  I am also going to clean out my closet - it just needs to happen!  Out with the old and in with the new!  Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi there and TGIF to you. I think this looks so effortlessly monochromatic. The sweater matches the shade of those jeans, perfectly. Also great new coat, it does look vintage and I love that Coach Purse. I have a small Hobo Coach Purse in a patch-like motif like yours, but mine has more browns, golds & burgundys in it. Enjoy your new purchases.

    As far as rain, it has been raining more on than off all day here and it rained all night last night. I only got out for the mail. I do think sometimes knee-high boots with tights and sweater dresses are better for rainy days.

    Ohh and I am looking forward to your Guest Post on my blog. Come up with something fun! =) I did reply to your comment on my latest post, too. ;-)

    Have a Great Weekend, Ada. =)
