Last Friday, my new friend Natalie and I went out for a girls day. It was a great time! We had lunch at Panera then went over to get mani/pedis. I got a great neutral tan color on my nails and dark purple on my toes because I'm a creature of habit. I got a little crazy and let them put designs on my big toenail. Flowers on my nails aren't "me" but it was worth a shot.
We had some time to kill before meeting The Writer and Natalie's husband for dinner, so we went over to the mall. I had some gift cards from Christmas left and hadn't been to the mall forever. Did you know that its semi-annual sale time?! I'd been trying to ignore it in favor of my 2012 budget resolution, but went a little weak in the knees when I saw this:
I'm completely in love with cobalt. I'm so glad that I think it might be hanging on for another season. Aside from the color, this jacket fits in the most amazing way. Its a little shrunken, so it can pulled off with a casual look, but the tailoring allows it to be worn to work, which I did yesterday. I wish I'd taken pictures, but I've been fighting a cold and have been staying in bed until the very last minute lately. I also love that it has five buttons down the front. Not only do they keep it nipped in at the waist and hips, they remind of the costumes from In Time. I highly recommend seeing it if you haven't already. The costumer did some appealing things with buttons to signify class differences. Many of the suit jackets had long rows of buttons and I loved it.
I want to wear it every day! Its a good thing I found some other goodies at the sales that I can work into my wardrobe. Oh, yes, stay tuned.
