Yesterday I returned to school after a gloriously refreshing two week spring vacation. I always find it difficult to return to school after March vacation because it is the one vacation that, due to having no holidays associated with it, is totally mine to do as I like. The transition from pure relaxation back to work is always a bit tough. And therefore I knew it was time to juice my spirits by paying attention to my outfits. And this blog is what helps me to do just that.
In mid-March, prior to vacation, I purchased a new GAP dark denim jean jacket to replace my former J.C. Penny light denim one. My old one was easily 10 years old, and it's shape (or maybe it's my shape) had changed so that it hung too loosely on me, and the color was blah against my lighter hair. I LOVE a good jean jacket as it adds warmth when needed, has pockets, gives a look some structure, and is pure comfort to wear. Plus it goes with everything. So now you won't be surprised when you see it surfacing in multiple outfits.
The pants were purchased at the GAP last summer, and the top from the amazing Kali store in Montréal, also this past summer. The gray and white polka dot Talbots's sweater was an extra layer to help fend off the early morning chill. Scarf came from my daughter-in-law's mother, and the earrings are amazing 3D printed by my talented artist husband, who made them after I bemoaned the loss of one earring from a favored pair.
