I really like this jacket with the striped shirt, and the coral scarf and scorpion pin gave it just the right amount of oomph. I wore this to go see In a Better World at BYU's International Cinema.

I was on Ebay the other day and I saw this silk tank from Talbots that I had really wanted from a few years ago on sale for $5. I snapped it up and I am wearing it with this teal jacket today. (The green's aren't an exact match, but hey, who's looking that close?)

So--I actually ended up wearing a long hot pink tank instead of the yellow tank, but yes, I did wear these yellow Hue tights. Vavoomie. (Mr. Ashman, a teacher at the school, told me I looked like a canary.)

I got several cashmere sweaters for $25.00 each recently, and this is one of them. I blinged up this simple sweater with a lavender/brown toned sequin scarf.

I don't wear this long vest very often, so I decided to try it with this favorite animal skirt. The BHW gave this outfit two thumbs up, so I guess it worked.

I decided to go with this beautiful merino sweater for Valentines Day. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with my handsome husband. We've been married for ~27 years, and I love him very much.

Today I went with blue and gray, with a touch of bling to shake it up. This pique jacket from Talbots is very comfortable and cute.

I'm basing this outfit off one that someone posted on the internet lately. The skirt in the picture is an animal print, but this tweedy one captures the same basic look. This sweater set is much more aqua than the turquoise it appears here. I went with black tights and boots as there is snow outside.

For this casual Friday I went with a very old but still cute cotton sweater and some comfy jeans.

This was kind of a funky outfit. I ended up going with my longer necklace that is like this one and the matching earrings.

I'm always on the lookout for smashing things in navy blue, so when I saw this cute ikat sweater, I picked it up. Luckily it fits well enough to wear both open and closed.

I hadn't ever tried this skirt with this shirt or these tights, and it was a winning combination. I actually ended up going with no necklace and lime green and blue bangles. Peacocky!

I recently saw a picture of someone wearing both the leopard velveteen jacket and skirt with a hot pink top. She looked absolutely smashing--she even belted the jacket!! I haven't been brave enough to try them both together, but I tried the hot pink with the jacket and really liked the look.

Today I tried out the vixen silk skirt I got for $16.00. It went well with a jacket and top and brown tights.

Today is "Go Red for Women Day" a day promoted to bring awareness to heart disease in women. I don't really need much incentive to wear red as it is one of my favorite colors. I am also showcasing one of my favorite new scarf ties. I love this wrap because it reduces both the bulk and the length of scarves. This red and black scarf is one that my lovely daughter Alison brought me back from London. I wore my black leather jacket with this when I was commuting.

I started out today fully planning to wear the gray sweater to the left with this skirt, but I just wasn't feeling it. I couldn't find a pair of tights that I really liked, and the gray wasn't quite a match. So, I changed up to the black sweater and added a long vest for interest.

Today I was so incredibly rushed that I just wore this outfit again so I wouldn't have to think for one extra second. I wore plain black shoes with it this time.
