Do I look like a Tablecloth?

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 :)

  1. I TOLD YOU! Ha! It is kickass awesome on you, Jodi! That was a total score - that coat will never go out of style. I predict you will wear it to death. :)

    Love it with the pink scarf, and don't be afraid to try other colours with it! Everything goes with a check!

  3. Taking risks is what makes fashion so fun. Pushing yourself, even a bit will make you want to expand your style horizons. I'm glad Sheila managed to push you a bit. The coat is AMAZING! Even if you don't feel like "you" in it, you might be surprised once your brain manages to catch up with what the rest of the world sees.

  6. Gotta say it - LOVE the coat. And I love how you added the pink scarf with it. Any colour, I agree, would look smashing. Hahaha, a little brain catch-up, as Suzanne said. It's so weird how that works.
