I loved this twist on a more classic color combo (red/white/camel) when Angie posted it, but have little-to-none in the way of burgundy or toffee. The image on the blog caught my eye this morning yet again and this line in the post stood out: "Animal print can be used as the toffee component of the outfit."

Duh, me!

So here is my rendition, substituting in an orange-based cheetah print (booties), cracked gold foil (tee), and light tan (clutch) in place of the toffee.

I bought this slouchy hat while out with Ann this past weekend, and it seems to be photographing a bit more plum than burgundy. The color is somewhere between the two, I think. Ann and I also chatted a bit about how sometimes we over-engineer our outfits and that, really, sometimes it's OKAY to just grab a tee and jeans then throw a jacket over the top. This is why we have such fabulous jackets in our wardrobes after all! Today I'm taking my own advice and hopefully, even though I've been off my jackets for the last two years, it helps breathe some life back into them for me. Now to dig up all my cool graphic tees...

Newer: tee, necklace, hat, clutch

Older: blazer, jeans, booties
