Today's outfit was greatly inspired by Rachel Lately. Her combo of leopard print and the color wine was perfect.
There is absolutely zero chance that I will ever sew a blazer. It just seems way too complicated to get the fit right. I bought a petite blazer from BR and of course the sleeves are too long and the shoulders are a little too linebacker-y but what can you do? it's good enough for government work.
For this outfit I pulled out some pieces deep in the archives. My More Classier dress, which is usually reserved for warmer temps, and my Adele shawl, which I have never actually worn. It's knit from some lovely Juliespins MCN yarn. I'm glad I was reminded that I own this shawl and hopefully I will pull it out and wear it more often.
BTW, in case you've started to notice that I wear the same shoes all the freaking time, well it's because I really like these shoes and they go with almost everything. in another 3 months or so the weather will warm up and I'll eventually start wearing footwear other than boots.
