Do you get a wee bit of a rush when you find the perfect piece?
Or do you feel rather hum drum and so so when buying clothes?
Well I got really excited when my new Gap denim jacket arrived and I immediately put it on to find it fit perfectly and I love the lighter wash. I bought the Petite but in a large as I have some "considerations" up front that necessitate a bit more fabric and I do want to be able to close the jacket without it gaping.
Can you picture this with white jeans? a printed skirt? a black dress with sandals?
I can and am already imagining all the combinations possible with my current wardrobe.
Hermes scarf with a pop of red...
which reminds me I must replace those red ballet flats that wore out.
JCrew necklace gets two thumbs up.
Sherman brooch oh yes!
The jacket is soft and already distressed so my work is done people.
Now I just need to get out and wear it.

I've done the seasonal closet swap and tried on all my Spring and Summer clothes.
The good news is that there will be lots of room for clothes!
The bad news is only two things fit!
Going from a size 14 to a 10 or 8 is exciting but it means that shopping is going to be very much on my agenda!
I have laundered and ironed all those too large items and have booked an appointment with the consignment shop in Oak Bay. I received several hundred dollars last season when I sold my clothes....it is not a lot of money but it will get me started as I need to replace the basics.
My walking partner and I are hosting a baby shower for a fabulous teacher friend who is expecting her first child in a few weeks.
It will be fun to see all the gals from work and catch up on all their news.
I had so much fun shopping for a baby gift!
Have you noticed how cute the baby clothes are these days?
What have you got planned for your weekend?
Hope you've got some time set aside for a wee bit of fun.
Thank you for stopping by...
