Creature Comforts

I was just telling a girlfriend of mine last night that when I started blogging, it made me realize what a creature of habit I am.  I tend to gravitate towards the same types of items and the same kinds of outfits.  So being a blogger has been a great way to force myself out of my comfort zone and try new things.  And today’s look is a great example of that.  A couple of years ago, I never would have tried an outfit like this.  And while it still wouldn’t be my go-to (like yesterday’s outfit!), I love pushing myself to try new trends and new looks.  Afterall, that’s what makes fashion fun and exciting, right?

The “It” Jacket

I don’t know about you guys, but every once in a while I stumble upon a piece that I want to own in every color possible.  And this jacket is one of those pieces. I have owned it in the army green color for the past 2 years and I have worn it so much (and received more compliments on it than I can count!), that it has become a tried and true favorite in my wardrobe.  So when I found it came it came in a washed black color, I knew it would be a good investment.  Plus, it’s under $55.  So if you are looking for the perfect jacket (with a little edge) that won’t break the bank, trust me.  This is the one.

Pleather

I have been on the hunt for a pair of pleather pants for a while now.  And wow, was a good pair hard to find!  My only requirement was that just the front of the pant was pleather (I didn’t want to end up like Ross in his full leather pants on Friends!), and the back, a good ponte.  And while there are lots of options on the market (and believe me, I tried them all), a good fitting pair was really hard to find.  But as usual, thank goodness for JCrew for coming through for me as usual and offering an amazing option in their factory stores.  And an even bigger thank you to my sweet hubby for tracking them down for me for Christmas!

I also have to say that I am loving the neutral color palette of this outfit.  After all of the colors and plaids I have been wearing throughout the holiday season, something just feels really good about going back to the basics.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!
