Happy Tuesday! This whole outfit was put together solely so I could wear my new coat. I thought a pink scarf would look good with it and so I ended up putting on this dress. The outfit just created itself really. But all in the name of wearing THE COAT.
I must admit, even though I totally trust and admire Sheila's fashion sense and her advise when we went shopping together there was a moment I hesitated and almost put this coat back on the rack. Then I thought I would regret it if I did so I bought it. I was still not sure. Mainly because it didn't really feel like me. I brought it home, washed it and while it was hanging out on the clothesline the hubs says "is that a new coat?" ... "it's kinda cool".
Well. Thats rare. He usually doesn't comment on my clothes all that much.
So I get to work this morning and I'm there about 10 minutes and someone from our office says to me as I'm going up the stairs " Wow, I love that jacket". Okay so I guess I don't look like a tablecloth I'm thinking to myself. And I am feeling somewhat self conscious that the shoulders are too wide.
NO ONE HAS ASKED ME ABOUT THE PLAYOFFS.
Then I go to a lunch meeting for work and as we are all leaving afterwards one of my colleagues says " Wow, I love that stylish coat". I'm like, oh, I don't look like a tablecloth? And she just rolls her eyes and says "You crack me up".
Okay. Its official. This is a cool coat. And Sheila did tell me so. SHE DID WARN ME. She said " Just wait til you get compliments all over the place on this". I'm booking my next shopping date. IMMEDIATELY :)
