First, let me add a dash of spring to your day. Here's a pic of some gorgeous daffodils & forsythia that my hubby brought back with him from his trip Mon/Tues. The client got them out of her own garden. I was thrilled because I just love both of those flowers. I have some daffodils in the yard, but clearly need to plant more bulbs in the spring so I can harvest at will. I also need to yank out some transplanted "builder" bushes and find a space for forsythia. (No, I will not take pics of me in the gardening overalls.) They have brought sunshine and such a beautiful scent into my whole downstairs. The sunshine is especially nice today since it is *pouring* outside.
Personal training at 12:30 today, so no nice outfit yet. Will post later today. I'm thinking it's a library shawl cardi kind of day. (see note on pouring rain above)
But here is yesterday's and yes, pulled out my new Atelier Jacket (that I yes, posted on and wore 2 days earlier). It was the perfect thing to top my (yes, again, tissue boyfriend vneck) tee and dark (again, Chicos) jeans since I had to go into the office for a quick meeting before meeting hubby for dinner. So the J Crew returns/exchanges have to wait a little longer, since I couldn't leave the puppy in the crate too long. (Per the puppy trainer, we want the puppies to succeed - excellent advice!)
Back to the topic at hand... I added my pop of yellow with last summer's Anthro limon*** necklace (I never remember the end if it's limoncello or limonade), but looking at the picture, the necklace doesn't show up at all on me with the vneck. That part did look better IRL, I promise. But I'm thinking crewneck next time with the necklace. And I did cuff up the sleeves of the Atelier and I love the pop of green that shows (thanks, Gigi).
And of course, because I was freezing by the afternoon, I swapped out the jacket for a big, comfy fleece sweatshirt for the bus stop and puppy playdate.
So yes, the jacket is emerging as the early favorite from the Dc JCA Private Shopping Event on Sunday.
