Second day rocking spring outerwear! As you know, I'm all about outerwear and this waxed cotton quilted jacket has been a favourite since I bought it on a whim several years ago. I used to feel it necessary to wear something vivid or bright underneath so as not to fade into the background wearing olive, but this spring, I'm loving it with pale pastels like blue, yellow, pink, coral etc.

Wore it today with a new blue sweater, horrible jeans, blue print scarf, and bit-trim loafers. I hate these jeans - and have only had them a short while. Story of my life. They slip down, and make my thighs look like tree trunks. Least flattering things I've worn. But I want dark skinnies! What do you do when you've bought something that felt right , wore it a few times, then hated it?? I hate wasting money this way. I think they are getting tossed when I take them off tonight. (don't recommend a belt - I don't do belts - cannot afford any extra bulk in the ab area !)


jeans - new BR Premium - YUCK
sweater - BR
scarf - Olsen
loafers - old Browns Couture
jacket - old Barbour for Club Monaco

Your comments/thoughts on finding jeans that fit and flatter, and wearing pastels this spring - appreciated and welcomed! Bonus shots of Puffy and Katie napping all over the sunroom while I was taking pictures.
