It's a Wrap!

OK, not a bad outfit. The skirt is from Christopher & Banks, and the shirt is BR (Banana Republic, but get to know the BR, because I get bored writing it all out all the time). I originally had on khaki brown sandals from BR, but on the way to work saw an amazing yard sale and had to stop! I braved a hill of fire ants to get at a jacket. Rrrrrgh. But, I bravly let them bite as I grabbed my find of the week. A brand new black, leather, 2 button jacket from the GAP!! $4.00!!! It's the bomb. But, I did have to grab these 9 west sandals and some Benedryl before heading into work....late....again. :) It was for a good cause.

But, I am feeling as bland as a naked baked potato! I need some bacon bits, butter or sour cream for this. Do you have an outfit that just seems....well, blah? Neutrals are one thing a lot of people have a hard time with. Many times we look like camouflage and blend into the office jungle. So, what to do? When you have a white and off/white combo, browns are always safe. I am not a safe person. Red is fun, but I don't look so hot in red. That is Joys color (she looks chic in red!) My red is CORAL. No, not the pen at the dude ranch that they put the horses in(corral)....the color! Give me dark rich peach, watermelons and peony!!

So, I pop on a scarf and...Viola! I feel more perky already and ready to take on even the most cranky of customers! Bring it on! Scarves are always a good buy and there are a 100 ways to wear them. This particular one came from ATL (sigh....not Atlanta) Ann Taylor Loft. I have worn it doubled over around my neck, and as a versatile!

Have a fabulous and fun weekend! Have fun shopping and we would love to see any "finds" you come across this weekend!!!


  1. You are working that coral...or maybe in the corrall? What? You bought boots too and a leather jacket. Are you sure it's not a corrall?!

  2. The scarf TOTALLY makes the outfit and brings the shoes into it.

    Found a FABULOUS London FOG coat at the Salvation Army for 20. It's not RED red, more cranberry. Plus I got a nice Liz Claiborne blouse for $5. Made my day.
