amends + tweed

First off, an apology: I promised you a Special Saturday Edition and I did not deliver.  The reason for this failure is two-fold.  First, I was more than a bit cheesed that my Dream Red River Shootout Outfit ("dream" as in "100% in my head, as modeled by Rachel Bilson or someone else equally skinnier/more-fashionista than myself") made me look like a homeless woman wearing long underwear as pants.  Thus, the fact that I had to improvise Plan B left me in a bit of a foul mood.  Second, in order to remedy my foul mood, I distracted myself with mimosas - always a good idea but sadly, said 8 AM concoction-mixing left no time for an impromptu fashion shoot prior to departure.  THEN I was going to take a photo in the Cotton Bowl bathroom (very nice full length mirrors in there, btw) but there was always a sorority girl with a way cuter outfit than mine fluffing her hair.

But as a peace offering, I give you some shots were you can kind of see what I sported:

{full recap of the weekend later on EA!}

Oversized, Orange Ombre Open Cardigan - CC California
White Ruffle Tee - J.Crew
Wide Brown Belt - Merona for Target
Always Skinny Jeans - GAP
(tucked into) Wingtip "Legend" Boots - Ariat
Gold Flower Earrings - J.Crew
Gold Medallion Necklace - Wedding Gift
Bauble Cocktail Ring - J. Crew

(I puffy heart my boots, a lot)

So yeah - totes sorry about the Failed Special Edition.  Please forgive!

Now on with Monday!  Another court appearance today so here's more of the "Mrs. Doubtfire Skirt" in all its glory... along with the Jackie cardy worn alone as a shirt (or "blouse," if you wanna roll like that).  I purchased this tweed number last year from BR online and was expecting something more fitted.  I almost returned it but am so glad I didn't as its perfect for really cold days or days like today where its cold in the mornings, then in the 70s by lunchtime, and you're planning on taking your jacket off any way.

Tweed Jacket - Banana Republic
"Jackie" Cardigan - J. Crew
Black Pleated Suit Skirt - Banana Republic
Black Suede Pumps - Banana Republic
Earrings - Wedding Earrings via Etsy
Seed Pearl Necklace - Christmas Gift
