Military and Blue

I did wear this jacket previously this year (at DEMCO fantasy camp), but YOU haven't seen it, dear reader, so here we go. I changed the buttons out on this jacket, from olive plastic (bleaahh!) to a simple brass design. Much better. I look sleepy, but I am really amused at unseen cat action on the kitchen floor. Well, I AM a little sleepy, we had an all-staff meeting which started my day an hour early.

Underneath is an Athleta dress in a great blue and black paisley print, for which this is the first wearing in 2012. I also have this dress in gray and black.

The dress has a generous neckline, so I either wear a jacket over it, or a camisole under it. We did Tai Chi at our all-staff meeting this morning, and this was the perfect choice; stretchy, good CYA coverage, and flattering. That was a great workout, by the way, I'm going to get some Tai Chi DVDs and try it at home.  

I was asked by a colleague about my tights later that day. They're DKNY Comfort Waist tights in Fatigue. These are the BEST TIGHTS EVER. They last forever and don't pinch my pudgy waist. I hate things poking me - I'm always cutting out labels - but especially at my tender middle. The tights have a mild control top, but again, super comfortable.

Here's the pretty stuff; J. Jill watch, bracelet and earrings Premier Designs, both gifts from my sister-in-law, and a new ring from eBay. I'm sorry you can't see the stone more clearly. Here's a similar ring from the same vendor. I bought three rings at once: bloodstone, rutilated quartz (yellow-ish) and ocean jasper. They're not fine jewelry by any means, but have a good sized stone and a slim band. I like a big ring, but don't like feeling like I'm wearing brass knuckles.

You know, I'd hoped to spend a little blogging time on other subjects than the daily outfit, but it's been difficult. Maybe when I start repeating myself. Is there anything YOU'D like me to ramble on about?

  1. This dress was really pretty on you. you can't tell in the picture with your arms crossed, but it makes your waist and hips look tiny! Think I might need to get me an Athleta dress.....
