But today I had a few errands to run, so I pulled on my fleece-lined tights & some boots and headed out! It was a BIG change from my walk to Walgreens in Orlando yesterday morning, but I'll take it over the sub-zero temps that have marked previous Decembers in Minneapolis for me.
Purple tweedy jacket & patterned skirt - Gap; Black tank top - Old Navy; Fleece-lined tights - Eileen Fisher via Marshalls; Gray boots - Madden Girl
When I bought this jacket, I really didn't realize how much I would end up wearing it! It has definitely been worth the $17 I paid for it. We all know I love a blazer, but I think what I like best about this one is the color. Black & charcoal are all well and good, but I like having an additional source of color in an outfit, especially when the combination of black tank top & black tights makes it look like I'm wearing some kind of body suit!
I celebrated Christmas a little early in Virginia so that I could exchange gifts with the Mister & his mom. His mom & his sister got me the prettiest earrings from an artisan in Santa Fe, on their way to the Arizona Ironman competition (where his sister WON her age division!). I love the colors in the earrings and the shape is really fun too! I see myself getting a LOT of wear out of them.
