Moto, Plaid & Leopard

October 30, 2014
Ever buy something that just ends up staying in your wardrobe forever?  For me, that’s this suede moto jacket.  Somehow it survives every closet edit year in and year out. It’s been in regular rotation for the last ten years.  No really …. 10 years!  And if my memory isn’t tricking me, I bought it at Ross for $15!

But it’s still cute, right?!

Outfit details:
Jacket – Paris Blues (Ross)
Jeans – Old Navy
Tshirt – Old Navy
Sneakers – Candies (Kohls)
Scarf – Vintage 
Handbag – Carlos Santana

Lucky wouldn’t move, so I just posed over him.  I think he’s mesmerized by the beeping timer.

So Dolls, I have some big news.  I know some of you enjoy the setting of my photos, but that will all be changing very soon!  We’re buying our dream home come true!  It even has .. are you ready …  a WALK IN CLOSET!  Be still my heart!

Hopefully I can keep up on my blog posting and reading during the move but …. oh dear, who am I kidding?  Moving is crazy. I’ll be lucky to find matching socks and remember to shower. 😉

    I think you could wear jeans every day, that is how fabulous your figure looks in them ( in everything else too!), love it ad that jacket is happy to make its resurgence, I love the fitted look of it on you. I have a pair of leopard slip ons too and this is perfect with it.

      Oh you're the sweetest. I do love my jeans. Can I blame it on being a California girl? OXOX

    Love this edgy sporty look on you! I have a thing for slip-ons so I think they're perfect with this outfit. Congrats on the dream home purchase! How exciting! Very jealous of the walk-in closet. I sort of have a walk-in or I should just call it a step-in. ~Cynthia

      Step in works too! I've been living with a very cramped little closet for quite awhile and I can't wait to spread out and get really organized! (That's the plan anyway!) Thanks Dear!

    I love plaid and leopard together! I have a similar pair of shoes and I wear them all the time! I love your jacket too!

    Congratulations on your new home! How exciting!

    And that jacket is fabulous! I am so glad that you kept it. It is definitely worth it. And that style is so in right now. I adore you even more with you posing over your dog! I love your humor.

    Good luck with the move!

      Haha … my crazy dogs keep me entertained! Thanks, Jenni … we're SO excited about moving! Not so much about packing, but definitely happy about our new place! Pics soon! OXOX

    I've been seeing those shoes lots lately! I never would have thought they were my style but I've been finding that I really want them!

      Those crazy leopard sneaks have a way of growing on you, right?! 😉

    So right … still adorable. Closet diving is a great habit. If it was great then, it's probably still a true love!
    So happy to think of you in your new, dream-home. You deserve it, I know.

      Aww, what a sweet thing to say, Jan. Can't wait to be all moved in and posting from my new place! OXOX

    I love clothes that survives trends & time…great jacket! Congrats on a new home and good luck with your move. I hate moving but I always end up doing much needed purging on everything which is a good thing.

    Love the photo with Lucky – such a cute dog!

    It's great you have an older piece in your wardrobe that you still get a lot of wear from! 🙂 Especially ones as pretty as your jacket 🙂

    Woohoo…congratulations on the dream home, dearest Dawn!! Think I might be able to rent some space in that new walk-in closet of yours?! And your suede jacket is most definitely a keeper…for another 10 years, at least!! P.S. Love the leopard slip-on sneakers, too!! XOXO
