Praise God for a Cool Front!

A cool front came in Saturday night, leaving a beautiful crisp north breeze in its wake. We woke up to a lovely fall-like day! And it's supposed to be like this all week! I am so thrilled! While it's not chilly enough to wear a sweater, it is possible to layer - and wear makeup! :D

White cap-sleeve jacket: JC Penney's
Yellow t-shirt: can't remember
Polka-dot skirt: JC Penney's
Naturalizer low-heel pumps: thrifted
Jumbo ring: Target
Silver hoop earrings: ???

I've debated about passing along this white jacket; there are no less than three white jackets in my closet. This one; a solid 3/4 sleeve button-front; and a 3/4 sleeve with wide navy pinstripes. Each is considerably different, so would be worn various ways, but do I really need three white jackets? Especially since, if I followed the "no white after Labor Day" rule, they would have a very short wearing time. It's simply too hot in Kansas to wear a jacket from May to September. However, I am learning to toss those old fashion rules out the I'm going to find ways to incorporate my white jackets into my fall and winter wardrobe. Stay tuned to see what I come up with!

As much as I love this dotted skirt, I have a hard time coordinating anything other than a plain white top with it. I've seen other fashion bloggers put larger dots with small dots, and I really like that look, but the only other dotted pieces in my closet are a dress and a t-shirt that would not compliment the skirt in any way at all. So I'll have to keep working on that. I can't part with the skirt - it's a great one for traveling up and down the sizes as it lends itself easily to tucks.

I think a necklace would have been a good idea for this outfit, but I ran out of time before we left for church. I grabbed the ring and earrings at the last minute, or there would have been no jewelry at all. There's a lot to be said for choosing one's outfit and accessories the night before.
