Yellow Rose of Texas

I got caught in the rain today while walking from a training at the federal courts to my office building. And I left my umbrella in my car. Oops.

What I Wore While Running Down the Street in the Rain:

Rand couldn't get a pic in focus, so this will have to do. Sorry.

  • aqua shortsleeve faux wrap T shirt (Target)
  • brown slacks (Lane Bryant)
  • brown/aqua/white/black tweed short sleeve jacket (Target)
  • brown flats (Se Boutique)
  • aqua purse (via Kohls)
  • yellow rose brooch (borrowed from Maria)*
  • key necklace (antique store in Austin)
  • aqua earrings (??)
  • brown belt (Ross?)

* brooch #3 in my "borrowed from Maria" series.

What I Ate While Out For $2 Margaritas:

  • beef fajitas
  • chips and queso
  • $2 margaritas!

I am just loving how you are styling your hair. Also this is a very slimming look.

Love the details in this outfit!

Charlotte Sometimes said...

You do look slim in that. Nice idea with the key necklace.

i totally have the jealouses over your jacket, belt, and purse. TOTALLY.

i must say also this outfit is very flattering on you. the balance is just right.

I like how your purse adds some color, but it's doesn't overpower or compete with the rest of the outfit--it nicely compliments it. :)

That key necklace is fabulous! I love it and will definitely keep this jewelry idea in mind! How creative! S.

You look great! I saw the jacket at Target & want it but I already have it in the burnt red. Sigh... I love the colors in it!

Thanks everyone!

Chic - Thanks! I bought a huge keyring of antique keys about 15 years ago and I like to wear various ones as necklaces. Sadly, over te years I've lost most of the keys. I think this might be my last one.

MissAmy - I WANT the red one. I've been trying to track one down. I don't care that I have it in a different color. I want BOTH!! hehe
