Manic Monday

Mondays are always the worst the day of the week- I know we're supposed to be thankful for each and everyday, but Mondays are always so plain and lame! Anyway, yesterday I went to run a bunch of errands and grab tuna melts with my dad and this is what I wore...
My all-time favorite jacket (you've seen this blazer on the blog several times), Zara bow-tie silk trousers and scarf, random Calvin Klein tank top, Aldo leopard boots (so painful!), vintage watch, and a bracelet I stole from my mom!

Those pants look so chic, and comfortable! Do they tie at the waist? Because if they do, that would be even better. I always love blue and gold together - great outfit.

I have been following your blog for a short while, but that yellow jacket has left an impression on me!
i was actually at a sample sale the other week and purchased a vest that had a similar center front lapel shape! Love it, your right to say its your absolute favorite, everything else can be replaced, except for that! Can i ask what brand it is? have you great day!

Stacy said...

I love those shoes! Leopard print can do no wrong in my eyes. Too bad they are painful- but I've heard that about Aldo.

Diamondsinchampagne said...

My friend was wearing a similar blazer out last night, the mustard colour is gorgeous. Love the booties too, a perfect addition to the outfit.
