Blue Monday

Happy Monday!

Don’t let the title fool you, I am definitely NOT feeling blue on this fine Monday. Just the opposite in fact since it’s President’s Day and I have the day off. Cheers for long weekends!

The outfit I am sharing was worn over the weekend. I attended a baby shower and then went out for Thai with my husband. I love it when one outfit does double duty!

Everything I am wearing is old with the exception of my new handbag, check out that post here. This blue jacket was rediscovered when I cleaned out my closet. Remember that? You can check out that post here. I bought it years ago at Macy’s and wore it probably once before it got lost in the chaos of my former closet. I think this is a great example of why just simply ridding your closet of clothing you haven’t worn in the last year may not be the best idea. Actually trying each piece on and then deciding its fate is a better way to go, in my opinion. My jeans and top are from Loft, both purchased last fall. My shoes are from Nordstrom last spring, they are cork and go with everything!

I had my husband take a close up of the necklace, I just checked and it is out of stock but this is similar. My necklace is from the same brand, BP and it was on sale for under $12.00. I love it for it’s simplicity. Since my jacket has so much going on with the large, gold buttons I opted for a simple necklace.

I should add that my husband took these pictures right before we left for dinner so I had been in this outfit for about 7 hours at this point and it still looks fresh! The jacket has some stretch in it which really helps it keep its shape and wrinkle free. If you take advantage of any of the President’s Day sales look for lightweight jackets with spandex, mine has 3% spandex and I think it makes all the difference.

Rediscovering favorites is what my outfit is all about. That’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today!

I am linking up with Patti for Visible Monday. I hope you’ll check out all of the great bloggers who’ve linked up as well. There’s so much talent out there!
