Black and light blue

I liked this so much I had to try it. The light is awful and the outfit would look better with scrunched sleeves and these photos illustrate exactly why cropped flares are a NFE look on me (at least these ones) but oh well. I do love the colour combo! 

Don't have the Find for the scarf but it is the same pattern as the blouse.

WIW: Red!

Today's outfit, just by coincidence. :) 


Another coincidence

I just happened to be wearing my own version of this today. Travel day, so lighting and locations not the best -- sorry! 

First the daytime outfit. My jacket is ink blue and I wore neutral booties and red scarf (Sandwich, no Find) -- but otherwise, I fit the formula exactly -- entirely by coincidence -- and what a great FFB outfit!! Honestly, before leaving this morning I was in one of those desperate -- what do I wear???? moods, trying on this, trying on that, pushing it all into the corner and feeling rushed and horrible. I put the jacket on and bingo! Instantly, I felt like a million bucks. Thank you, Reiss, and thank you, Angie and Vivian, and Greenjeans and Janet and Diana and Sveta, and Karie and Jjsloane and Isabel all the rest of you who urged me to spend more on this item of clothing than I'd ever spent on an item of clothing in my life -- it was totally, totally worth it. 

So, what did I do? Packed 2 more jackets for 3 days away, ha! :) 

Evening (another bathroom pic) in new blue jacquard J. Crew top. And Trouvé tux jacket and jeans again with different booties for a casual supper. Fun Sicilian restaurant -- Sicily pics in the background. 

Mr. Suz loves this J. Crew top on me. It's hard to see the pattern in the pic but it's a great "under a jacket" dressy top and will work nicely with the right skirt also. It's quite cut away in the shoulders so I will need one of those bra pinchers or a racer back bra to keep my straps better behaved in summer.
