Those of you who live in the Pacific Northwest know that yesterday must have set some kind of record for dark and rain. Today, there is actually some sun behind the cloud.

Wear ye white jeans while ye may, I always say.

I took inspiration from the fourth outfit with the plaid jacket. Navy instead of black, a t-neck instead of a v-neck, a navy plaid rather than black and white, and voila. Tried it with pearls and without.

The pearls feel a bit unnatural on me with this outfit -- I think it's the wrong type of strand -- a simpler one might feel better. (I do like wearing these with other outfits. But I have to be careful because they are on the warm side now for my colouring. As a blonde it was easier to wear pearls.)

Love the Tilly. Soft, warm, not itchy (because it's cotton). An absolute essential for me and I'd been missing a ribbed navy t-neck for the last year.

Also, how many times can I say I love you to these Aquatalias bought last winter at the Rack for -- actually, $0, because I had a Nordstrom note? Oh my goodness, these are amazing. I adore them. Work with dresses and pants, always look sleek and polished. Waterproof and warm.
