We’re back in Tennessee again for another football game. It’s a gorgeous Saturday with mild temperatures and a lot of sunshine. I wore this trench dress as a long jacket over a skin tight black dress…it helps to hide unflattering bumps here and there.
Hubby said the trench dress reminded him of The Matrix.
This is what it looks like as a dress.
Linking up with Patti for Visible Monday!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

I agree! My Tobi is adorable!
Your husband is soo funny! I love that he said it reminded him of The Matrix 😀 Only a very sophisticated, stylish and amazingly good lookin’ Matrix!
Haha, thanks Edita! I’ll relay that message to hubs. 🙂
That trench dress rocks! Your husband’s comment made me laugh, men, huh? You look utterly gorgeous and your cur=te spaniel is the ultimate in cool accessories! xxx
Ps Thank you for your kind words, I adore Cher! x
Thank you Vix!
Yes, my Tobi is the star, and hubby says some interesting things about my wardrobe.
Glad you stopped by!
I think you look stunning in every way. I’m lusting after those shoes!
Thank you so much, Judith!
You look great, Jeannie! And those shoes are fabulous!
I would like to make a trade….my Zanotti for your Chanel? 😉
Wow, what a fabulously sophisticated and stylish outfit! Love that idea to use the dress as a duster. Hey, thanks for coming to visit me at my blog!
I think you look great, it is funny what husbands can say- mine says some hilarious things about my outfits .
Yes, I cannot write half the stuff he says….no, I couldn’t embarrass the ladies that way. 😉
Are you sure he didn’t say Dominatrix? haha Those shoes!!! Whoa!
Haha, Lisa! Why, whatever do you mean??
love, love, love that trench dress! versatile and classic — and VERY Matrix! Hi Toby! Lookin’ good, little fella!
I’m guessing you survived the dive trip? I hope you had fun!
Tobi and I thank you!!
i love the matrix dress…what a great idea
Absolutely beautiful matrix! Your dog is so cute! ^_^
you look great, as you always do! although i like the movies i do not see you in a matrix style, for me it looks more like you are going to safari, anyway it’s marvellous. and tobi is a sweety! lieben gruß von sabine
Thank you Sabine! You know, it does have a bit of safari vibe now that you mention it. I guess that’s better than the Matrix look?? Have a super week!
Love this layering look. I cannot imagine you having any bits you don’t want to show. You look so beautiful.
Aww, thank you! Well, lets just say that I shouldn’t wear anything skin tight. It’s okay tho b/c I love layering for fall!
You do have a Matrix vibe going on with this outfit. It’s very attractive and hip!
But wait a minute….where’s the orange?
You and my hubby! At least you think it’s hip! 😉
I was supporting the team in orange jeans on Saturday……didn’t help the team. 😦
Have a super week, Elisa!
Well we already know your husband has great taste! Sorry about the L, they’ll get ’em next time!
Great look Jeannie. Certainly does not remind me of the matrix. More of the fall prada collections! Such a good and creative idea to wear your long dress over your tight one
Oh wow! That sounds better than looking like a character in the Matrix.
I’m so NOT creative……so, thank you, thank you!
Love the long trench coat look. Maybe Matrix, but very sexy.
Thank you Gracie!
Haha, I’ll take sexy!!!!
Love, love this layered look. I do see a bit of Matrix here, but you are not scary, you are fabulous. : > Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday!
Thank you Patti!
I love it Jeanie! I’d forgotten about they movie! So we are Seattle Seahawks fans and our daughter is on the cheer team. Hasselback snd Locker are local to our area and just moved to play for Tennessee. Hope they play well for your team. We just played Dallas amend won!
Oh, how fun would it be to be part of a cheer team for the Seahawks! I’ll have to watch the game on TV to find your daughter. We’re big fans of Univ of TN Football…but we pull for the Atlanta Falcons when it comes to the pro-team.
Beautiful… maybe there is hope for me yet…LOL. I’m a jeans person cuz I’m so tall, but I love the look you have put together here. 😀
Thank you Keli!
Oh, I would love to wear jeans everyday if I could….
I would also like to be tall!
Thank you for visiting!
Ooo! You have given me an idea! I have a similar dress hanging in my closet (even the colour is the same) that I haven’t worn in ages. It never occurred to me to wear it unbuttoned over something else but I might have to give that a try.
I’m so happy I could inspire in some small way.
I’d love to see it when you put it together!
I love this look! It’s classy and sassy all in one!
I’ll take classy & sassy any day! 😉
Love the dress! But it really doesn’t remind me of anything Keanu reeves wore in the matrix. It’s very elegant. Love the sleeveless cut.
Thank you Heather!
That’s the first thing hubby said when he saw this outfit….maybe b/c of the longer trench look? He actually said he liked it!
Great look ! I would love to own this versatile dress as both cut and colors are lovely…
Thank you Sara!
It’s one of my favorites.
Leopard and kaki green are beautiful together, I have to try that !!!
Can’t wait to see your version!
Beautiful look head to toe! AND, you have the greatest shoe collection.

I love shoes, I admit it, it’s a weakness! 😉
LOL! That first photo of you is so cute and amusing a pose!
The matrix pix looks like they are dancing actually 😛
All in all, fabulous vest!
Thank you Jeannie!
The movie is actually quite good.
Definitely is – have the entire set. Can’t imagine that the first move was in 1999!
Stunning outfit. I can’t imagine where you’d fine a bump to need to hide ;-). Love the entire look.
Hope the football was great.
Oh, I’m pretty good at hiding them. Too bad we lost, but it was still fun!
Hello ma’am! It’s been a while. Stunning, so-on-point pictures as usual, and Toby looks cute on there too.
I had me some fun time when I met with some online writers this Saturday, and it was fun all the way.
Trust you’ve been having a good weekend.
Take care ma’am. Cheerios.
Glad you stopped by! Tobi and I thank you!
Sounds like a wonderful weekend for you, and mine was fun, too!
Keep on writing!!
Well, the only thing I see with bumps are the ones that are suppose to be there! LOL Really, you have knock out legs! Very creative of you to layer two dresses and what a cute purse too.
Haha, I hide them well!
Thank you, Joni! 🙂
i like this one a lot!!! those shoes!!! that green!! ahh!:)
Thank you, thank you!
I love your outfit, especially the trench coat. Your style is amazing ! I first noticed the shoes but then I saw the trench and loved it ! Hope you have a wonderful and safe rest of the week. God Bless
Thank you sweetie! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far! 🙂
You look fantastic as always.
Maybe the Mister meant you are a fantasy come true? 🙂
Those shoes are “fierce”!
Haha, no, I don’t think that’s what he meant….but, thanks for trying! 🙂
This is such a great look…I love it. But, I do not know how you do those shoes at a football game. It usually involves a lot of walking…you are SUPER WOMAN! We often see woman dressed this well at football games in Texas!!
No, I’m not a super woman b/c I could not wear these heels to a football game. I had these photos taken Friday when we arrived in TN. I, too, have seen fashionably decked out ladies and gents at the football games….I prefer comfy! 🙂
I think its a gorgeous look! Its funny, isn’t it the way our husbands see things related to fashion and style. If my hubby had said something like that I might have changed…because I would think he really was trying to tell me it didn’t look good. I’m glad you stuck didn’t change because it is a fabulous outfit.
Thank you, Lisa!
Oh, I don’t really take hubby too seriously when he makes a remark. But, when he just looks at me funny but doesn’t say anything – that’s when I start grilling him.
Hi Jeannie !
Love you Matrix (!) look. The contrast long dress / short skirt is perfect. And I would steal your scarf if I could – the perfect final touch !
Thank you, Anne!
I actually thought about you when I was playing with the scarf with this outfit. Thanks for your approval! 🙂
Love your fashion sense! Question (I am a VOLS fan too): do you wear those heels to the games? We always have quite a hike to our seats. Just curious!
Yay! Go Vols!
Too bad they didn’t win tonight. 😦 Were you at the game?
No, I don’t wear heels to the game. Normally, I wear jeans and comfy shoes/boots. We usually park at the Ruth’s Chris Steak House and walk to the stadium. I could never do that in heels!
No, we didn’t get to go to the game – and by 4th quarter I was glad! I love your outfits and your shoes too! I was going to be jealous if you were able to wear them to Neyland!
Oh, I know! My hubby was so upset about the loss. I’m usually in Jeans and something “orange!” No heels! 🙂
You are just so cute. This is a great look…love the trench as a jacket or dress.
Thank you Heather!
Hope you’re having a nice weekend!
You look beautiful and I love your lil doggy
Tobi and I thank you!! 🙂
I love it! I love the black and you look fabulous. Jack and I might have to become Tennessee football fans. 🙂
Haha, then we could all be fashionable in ORANGE!
You have the most fabulous shoes. Enjoy wearing those high heels as long as you can, I can’t do over 2-3 inches anymore. Is there such a thing as Gracefully 61? 🙂 And Arlene is right, take something warm along too. I recently went to Florida to visit our son and thought, hmmm this time I’m going to outsmart the Air Conditioning and take sweaters and layer a lot. I still got cold.
Of course you are graceful at 61! As for shoes, I don’t do well with heels over 4″, and yes, I’m gonna wear them until I can’t. 😉 I didn’t wear this outfit to the game. I normally wear jeans and comfy shoes. It was a night game tonight, and my son went to the game with hubby while I visited the mall. 😀
LOVE the trench jacket! This outfit is so fun & flirty!
-Daisy Nguyen from PS BANANAS fashion blog:
I like fun & flirty! 🙂
Hi Jeannie, I find an outfit very nice and interesting. The jacket is beautiful with spectacular pattern. The outfit, the shoes and the scarf is gorgeous. I can not believe what the bumps. 🙂
Haha, I hide them well.
Thank you for your sweet words!
Lovely as usual but you aren’t wearing that to the game are you ? It’s sweatshirt and jeans weather here in MO.
No, I’m not wearing this to the game. 🙂 The photos were from Friday when we arrived in TN.
Already cold enough for sweats in MO?
Love this layering look. Fab!
Thanks Amanda! Hope you’re having a good weekend!
