Blouse:  J.Crew Blythe blouse {3 or 4 years old… similar here and here and here}
Skirt:  Joe Fresh {similar here and here}
Clutch:  Le Chateau {purchased about 2003 maybe?}

Bracelets:  Gorjana chain; thrifted bangles
Midi/Knuckle rings:  Ardene {just meant to be cheapies to test out the look… After wearing between one and three knuckle rings for about a week, I have to admit, I am quite liking the trend! Similar rings here here and here}

I bought this skirt during a brave moment a few weeks back, and I am surprised how much I actually like it.  It’s a little outside my comfort zone, but also surprisingly wearable.

Lately…

Two quick snap shots from otherwise failed photoshoots…

Shirt:  J.Crew Factory draped pocket tee
Pants:  J.Crew Factory Gigi pants (mini review – are exactly the same as the J.Crew Pixie pants with the exception of the zipper placement.  A much more cost effective option!)

Coat:  Vintage
Scarf:  Dynamite
Sweater:  J.Crew cashmere cardigan
Blouse:  found at Winners
Pants:  J.Crew Full-length Minnie in bi-stretch wool {really liking these pants!  I also bought them in burgundy during J.Crew’s last sale blowout 🙂 I already have a pair of the Minnie’s in twill, but they are not my favorite (because of the fabric).  The bi-stretch wool version is far better!}
Purse:  Vintage {similar here and here}
Shoes:  Pour la Victoire “Carmendy” {also here}

Is anyone else sick of winter?  I don’t normally complain about the seasons, but this winter is just dragging on and on…
I know I’ve said it before, but wearing color really helps my break out of my winter funk…even if only for a short while.  For today’s look, I took a chance on pairing dark olive pants {thanks Wikipedia for help classifying this color!} with my vintage teal coat.  And I have to say, I am quite happy with the result!

I am torn about the {faux?} fur collar.  It’s not really my favorite feature, and I am thinking about removing it.  Normally, I refrain from altering vintage pieces, but interestingly enough, I think the previous owner added the fur after purchase {it’s not listed on the material content tag}.
