Surprise E., I have your jacket!

E. left her jacket at my house the other day, so this morning I decided to give it a go.  There has been quite a bit of clothing swapping going on between us all these past two weeks and I love it!  I have four sisters and even though we all have different body types and different styles, there always managed to  be some items that could be borrowed (or begged or stolen as the case often was).

I remember early in my friendship with E. suggesting that she wear some item of clothing I knew she owned.  She was surprised, and a I think rather pleased, that I knew her closet off the top of my head.  These days, it is so easy to mentally plan an outfit for either S. or E.!  In fact, S. just emailed us both last night asking for packing help for her trip to San Francisco.  I quickly replied that weather in the 60s sounds absolutely wonderful to me!   My previous home states have enjoyed many more weeks of this kind of weather and I greatly miss it in my current location.  I love to pair cardigans or blazers with shorts or skirts and sandals.  And, I adore scarves!

I decided this morning that it was still cool enough when I left the house, and would be cold enough in the classroom, that I could let one of my favorite scarfs out for at least part of the day.

This look is stepping outside my comfort zone in a couple of ways.  This winter I learned to embrace the skinny jean, but only when paired with something long and bulky on top and boots on the bottom.   As the weather has warmed, I’ve hesitantly pulled the skinnies back out, but again only to pair it with something long and loose on top, so this close-fitting tank top with the oh-so-close-fitting jeans is new for me.  Secondly, I was, for a long time, adamantly against wearing heals with jeans.  When I discovered trouser jeans however, heels were the only way to go!  Now, I’m even coming around on heels with cropped jeans!

    I love the bright color of your shirt! It plays well off the color of your hair and skin tone. Beautiful!

    So I have to ask – Who takes the pictures of you all lol? Do you three see each other every day or is it significant others, etc?

    Thanks all!

    Anna – Today S. and I took each other’s pictures outside of one of our usual coffee shops. We do sometimes take eachother’s pictures, or have a significant other do it, but I think we all most often take our own pictures with a tripod or by propping the camera on some random surface.

    I think the combination works well. Glad your scarf got a little time to shine. And the skinnies look great on you.
