The Style Me Bloggers are at it again with our bi-weekly linkups and this week's topic is 'From my close: something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue'
Yup, my Gap jean jacket circa the late 90s. This bad boy was one of those pieces that has literally been sitting in my closet a solid 15 years but I just couldn't part with it. To be honest, I forgot it was there until this past spring. I made a point to thoroughly go through my closet and purge (if only so I could have an excuse to replenish) and lo and behold, my vest. It still fits and I've fallen in love with it all over again!!
I look a little stunned and uncomfortable in the jean jacket at first, but I learn to embrace it... I swear
SEE!! Come fall I'm rocking it, okay, well at least not looking horribly uncomfortable.
My chunky gold watch!!!! I've been dying for a chunky gold watch since it was an optional accessory in Alison's style challenges. Then I found this Michael Kors twisted and began coveting it it immediately. Now, as much as I love love love Mr. B, he's more of a practical gift giver (think: the husband that gives a vacuum) so you can imagine my surprise and excitement when I opened this bad boy Christmas morning. Well done Mr. B, well done.
I looked through my closet and I legitimately can't find anything that's borrowed. Either that, or it was borrowed so long ago that I've just assumed it's always been mine :)
Things I've been known to borrow: dresses and shoes!!
I love the color blue. Cobalt blue in particular. It's hard to pick just one thing so I'll give you a smattering of the blue in my closet for your viewing pleasure (and to remind me of what to wear in the near future!)
this pic makes me miss summer...
We've got a bunch of topics scheduled and we'd LOVE for you to join our linkups!! Next one is Jan 23 and we'd LOVE to hear what you're all coveting!
