gloomy sunday

With the tragedy that just happened in my hometown/ country, I felt so gloomy today. I went out to brunch and watched The Descendants with hubby to ease the blues. The movie was simple but with great acting, it kept my interest. Didn’t feel like putting on something fun, so I put on a Tulle coat over a long sleeve plaid shirt and a pair of jeggings. A pair of bold earrings I bought from Shasta city a few months ago gave the outfit a little pizzazz.

What I’m wearing:

coat: Tulle via Nordstrom

jeggings: Avon

boots: Nine West

plaid shirt: via macys

bag: coach

earrings: from a souvenir shop in Shasta City, CA

comfort for less

As I mentioned on my previous post, I don’t get to wear casual clothes as often as I used to anymore because my job requires me to wear a uniform. Not my favorite. So whenever I have the chance to wear  anything different other than my uniform, I take that opportunity to show my outfit on my blog. I prefer ponchos and thick sweaters on winters rather than those bulky jackets- they make me look shorter and wider. 😦 Ponchos and sweaters are soft and comfy too. I am just so glad we normally don’t have harsh winter in Sacramento or I wouldn’t care what I wear to keep myself warm.

I have been waiting to wear this poncho that I bought a couple of months ago for less than $20.00 but since the weather had been mellow I didn’t get the chance to put it on until today. Yes, $20.00! I have been watching my budget lately so I get so excited whenever I find great buys. Except for the poncho, everything else is from previous years.

What would you rather wear to keep yourself toasty?

I love how comfortable this poncho is. I can be on my feet in these boots all day too.

I decided to use a bright green purse to give the outfit a splash of color.
