One of my favorite jackets…I wore it here with a pair of ripped jeans. This version is certainly more appropriate for “dressing my age.”
Funny quote of the day….(found this on onelinerz.net). I read this out loud to my hubs…yep, I did…more than once!
Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

You always look so stunning. I love how the jacket and booties make the traditional pencil skirt really modern. Happy New Year!
Hi Jill! Thank you…so sweet. Happy New Year to you!
LOVE that jacket….classic and yet edgy…and paired with the checkered skirt it is just perfection!
Thanks Carly! Enjoyed your video on closet essentials!

Thank you for your comments! You look fabulous too! I LOVE your youthful, sassy style. I have a similar story w/ starting my blog. I’m many things and find fashion to be a consistent love, fun passion. It’s so nice to be growing older yet finer. I find heights exciting; so climbing is a perfect sport for me. Along with running the beach with Rio dog. Blessing at the holidays & into 2012.
Thanks for your comments! You are so kind. And you look fantastic yourself! It’s such a blessing to be growing older and looking so great. I owned two Cavaliers for many years – never was there a sweeter dog. Now I have a protector, running mate: Rio – Black lab & Great Dane.
I’m not afraid of heights; find them exciting so climbing is a perfect sport for me, along w/ my running.
I can send you photos of my Cavs if you send me your email. My email is anniemedal followed by the symbol for at, followed by hotmail, then a dot followed by a com.
Hi Anita, I would love to see photos of your Cavs. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I like how you styled your hair and this jacket looks fabulous and so easy to mix and remix

I LOVE this entire look so much…I’ve looked for a skirt like this to no avail!! I also love the quote you ended…how true, how true!
Thank you very much Pam! I thought the quote was funny but hubby just snickered. 😉
Your jacket is stunning! Hope you’re having a great day.
Thanks Wendy! 🙂 I had a great day!
I think this is my favorite look of mine on you so far….you look gorgeous in that shade of tan/beige/camel. And the cut of that jacket is so flattering! Well done!
