Lucky Inspired

Black suit jacket, Breakin’ Loose. Army green tank with jeweled neckline, H&M. Brown slacks, Moda International. Leopard peeptoe wedges, Steven by Steve Madden. Brass bangle and owl purse (yes, again!), World Market. Wooden bangle, via swap. Gold watch, Raymond Weil.














It may be hard to tell, but today’s outfit was inspired by this photo from Lucky. I almost couldn’t find a “schoolboy” blazer of my own. I pulled this one out of the swap pile, rolled up the sleeves, and made it work. I guess I’ll hold on swapping this blazer and its matching skirt just yet.

Earlier this month, I bought a new winter coat to replace my beige one. The old, Liz Claiborne, coat was actually getting holey. The wool seemed to be thinning until there was nothing left in spots. It lasted me three seasons. Black will hide the dirt better, but the cat hair seems more obvious.

Love the coat! Where's it from?

The coat is Guess brand - I bought it at Wilson's Leather (on sale!) I like that the neck can be buttoned all the way up to my nose. And the belt is pretty awesome too.
