I'm back home and able to enjoy "real" clothes again -- yay!

I had a couple of things waiting for me to try. First up is the long abstract floral jacket. The more I look at this, the more I like it. It's not fitted to my waist, and I do think I could stand to have a little bit taken in in the middle of the back, but otherwise I'm liking it. The colors play well with my blues and burgundies. I can fit a light sweater under it, nothing bulky, but that's ok. I'm actually tempted to wear it out today/tonight!

Pardon the ton of photos -- I'm showing full length shots with both pairs of booties, and I'm showing photos of the jacket open as well as buttoned for fit, even though I mostly wear jackets like this open. In a couple of these angles I'm trying to show the bit of bunching that happens in the roomy back fit. There is a center seam in the back, so an alteration is a definite possibility.

Next, two pairs of black booties that struck my fancy. The Topshop ones with the red heels are really comfortable and a nice refined shape. The Sam Edelmans have a higher heel and are not quite as comfortable, but I feel them easing up as I'm wearing them around the house. I love the combo of the lug sole and the pointy toe.

Full disclosure, I'm attaching a photo of all my other black booties. I feel like these are distinctly different from what I have, and I can envision these in outfits better than some of my old pairs. I don't want to be too redundant though. Any thoughts or feedback?
