Change Your Stripes

Oh, three day weekends are the best!  Monday is actually Tuesday so I'm only 4 days away from the next weekend.  I'll take it!  Even so, life is not perfect and most of the weekend was chilly so no, there was no beach or BBQ for me.  To be quite honest, I spent the weekend cleaning the exorbitant amount of clothes, shoes, scarves, purses, and make-up that somehow wrecked havoc all over my our bedroom.  And then it dawned on me--the trick is to put it away right after you take it off.  Not wait until until it gets so bad that you have to keep the door closed to forget it's there.  What a novel idea.

--get the look--
A leather jacket instantly adds edge to any outfit.  Switch it up from the regular black to a great taupe color for spring.  It's an easy way to dress up jeans and a printed top.  Pair it with a great bag and stacked heel booties.
A leather jacket is a great investment, but can be a pricey one.  These days there are great quality faux leather jackets on the market, like the one I'm wearing.  They look like the real deal but are a fraction of the cost.
