I was intrigued by Angie's sneakers and chain strap bag post yesterday - enough to test-drive it today. It took some fiddling with : at first I had on white sneakers, but it's still cold and wintery here and they looked a bit off. Went with black faux reptile instead. I actually forgot I had this bag, and it changed my plan for this outfit (I was going to work it around a red snake bag with a gold chain) - for the better, I think. The snake echoes the sneaker texture, and I liked the match between the chain on the bag and the wrap chain necklace. I was pleasantly surprised - ok, bloody shocked- to find my adidas track pants still fit (both Jill/DD/21 and I have them, and both were in her closet - unsurprisingly) still fit, so there was no way I was NOT going to wear them today

The bomber is a fun piece I picked up in the fall from one of my customers , and I love how it worked with this outfit. I liked what I had on, liked the idea of the chain bag a lot, and felt different and more interesting today while running errands. I will definitely be experimenting with this look in spring too - when I can wear my white sneakers. Thanks so much Angie!
