I am really loving this buffalo checked mohair set (skirt and jacket) that I got from Talbots. I don't know if I will ever wear them together, but they are cute separates. For the quick walk over to church, I added my big gray cashmere scarf and my royal blue gloves. Toasty!! (Itch Report: Many purchasers felt that this jacket was very itchy around the collar, but I didn't really notice it, so that was a nice bonus.)

This was a great outfit for hanging around the house all day and then going to the BYU/St. Mary game in the evening. I am really loving blue with purple right now.

For this casual Friday I went with my Talbots boyfriend jeans and a sweater. I added Great Grandma Penrod's butterfly pin just for fun. (Side note: I recently hemmed these jeans and decided that they were too short after hemming. So, I had to go back, take the hem out, sew on seam tape, and extend the hem by about an inch. It was worth the work.)

So, today I walked on the wild side and went with a bright orange skirt and very bright scarf. This was an invigorating, fun outfit, especially considering how gray the weather was today. It went exceptionally well with my suede long jacket from last year.

So this outfit on the right was my attempt to imitate this outfit on the left. I thought I pulled it off pretty well. This very blue toned color of pink looks smashing with blue.
(I still wish this jacket wasn't double-breasted, though.)

This velvet jacket is the softest, snuggliest thing I own.

I hadn't worn this faux wrap shirt since I cut the long tie off of it. It used to have a long tie on the side that drove me nuts.

This will be the one and only time I wear this shirt. Hmm...this just does not do anything for me, and it feels low cut, too. Work uniform shirts are the worst.

Today I wore this outfit straight from the clearance racks at Talbots.

After wearing this on the weekend and loving it, I tried it again for a work day look with colored jeans. I really like this sweater after I traded the regular for the petite.

This was a just slightly itchy outfit, as it is all made of wool. I like this skirt, but it would be even cuter if I lost ten pounds.

I had today off because of MLK day, but I had a lot going on, so I was out of the house. I love three day weekends.

I took a quick shot of myself before heading over to church--I'm not sure what I'm looking at, but I do need to clean my mirror!!

This sweater is warm and comfy, but after wearing it for a while I am reminded of why I like thinner sweaters better. It is cute, though.

I went with this tried and true pairing for a quick get-to-school look before the long weekend.

This outfit of the day is made of things I've had for a while. I added the grey leopard shoes just for excitement.

I am almost ashamed to say how cheap this jacket was. It was regularly $169 and I got it for ... $16. It looks great with a pop of color with the orange tank. I love tweed!

This sweater and the green one I have like it really look much better on than laid out on the floor. This was a great outfit for me.

So I wore this cardigan and silk top together, and, hmm..., I was not in love with this outfit. It was comfy enough, though.

I went and got my hair cut yesterday, and as I was looking through a magazine, I saw an ad where a lady was wearing a turquoise skirt with a hot pink sweater and leopard belt. I said to myself, I can do that look, so this is what I wore to church today. Because it was freezing, I topped it for the walk over with my trusty faux fur jacket from Chicos and my new Touch Gloves in black from Talbots. Meow!!

I like this pink/turquoise combo so much I started thinking about other accessories, i.e., scarves, I could wear with it.

Saturday, January 7, 2012

I got a lot of large packages today from Talbots. Eeek. This cute cashmere sweater was in one of them and was one of the five items I kept (along with the socks). After being warm for several days, it has finally turned cold, so I added this scarf (and, when we went out, my fleece motorcycle jacket from Eddie Bauer) to stay warm and toasty.

I went with something warm and snugly for a casual Friday.

Thursday, January 5, 2012

This outfit made me feel like a million dollars. I actually didn't wear the jacket for most of the day and just went with the chocolate colored top. My new Small Leather Sabrina Frame Tote from Talbots was a great match as well.

I wore this outfit with a purple sweater shell this time (this is a previous picture). This looked very good with my black patent booties.

Tuesday, January 3. 2012

This jacket and the matching skirt are probably some of my favorite finds of the year (and at $27 for the jacket and $16 for the skirt, I got a whopper deal on them). This outfit simply looked amazing.

I wore this extremely vintage Talbots sweater today. It still looks pretty good after six years. Today is the last day of my winter break, so I'm pretty casual.

I broke all the rules of fashion, I guess, by wearing red shoes with black tights. Oh well.
