Back To School...


OK. I suppose we should clear some things up here...I'm not really going back to school, but when I donned this outfit I did feel a bit like I was (trading the quintessential book bag for a leather purse instead.)

This outfit includes my new tweed fitted vest, which I bought with the intention that it would be a pivotal piece in this year's Fall wardrobe. Upon purchase of said vest, I immediately had all sorts of fantasies of what I could do when I donned this particular garment...which included, but was not limited to, Running board meetings (which I do not usually do), Walking in the fall leaves (which I do actually do, and may still happen) and standing thoughtfully in a study...you know? The kind with the dead animal heads on the walls...leather furniture and books all around? Talking of lofty subjects, and maybe smoking a pipe. Well, not me per say...but, maybe Rich (who thought the outfit was cutie...so, thumbs up from him, and I think he can be included in my fantasy.) I have not yet played Polo or taught a class, but those things may be imagined in the future.

As it is, I took the vest for a test drive this week paired with a tweed skirt with a little opposite color pattern, and a pair of cream thigh high socks (from Target) So, I was toasty warm...

And very tweedy.

Indeedy.

(Yeah. About that witty vest fantasy...)

Way to rock that vest, girl.
Just catching up on, oh, three weeks or so of missed blog reading...

Ooooh...I'm diggin' it! The vest is a really nice cut----tailored, but not too tight. A hard thing to find!

You look like a new character from Harry Potter or something.
Ms. Blatherscolds, who teaches tweed bewitchery, among other things.

P.S. The word verification thingie I got was 'Swinalu' ...as in 'the Swine-a-lou flu'
Where do they come up with those thigns?
