Tapestry and Leather



     Minnesota is a meteorologist's dream.  During the dark winter months (when sunset is at 4 in the afternoon) the temperatures can slide down to -20 degrees below zero.  The peak heat of the summer can reach 100+ degrees.  This is a transitional time from winter to spring.  Sunny 30 degree days seem warm.  The puffy down coats are pushed to the back of the closet and thoughts of gardening flood my mind.


     I just purchased this Michael Kors leather jacket.  I tend to choose gold accents on clothes because this highlights my hair and coloring best.  I think women of all ages look great in a leather jacket plus it works with many items in the closet.




jacket--Michael Kors
blouse--Victor / Victor Alfaro
skirt--Cabi (thrifted)
shoes--Cole Haan
tight--Merona

  2. Beautiful, Ann!
    You have such a fabulous figure and the pencil skirt and the elegant blouse are so flattering.

    Still cold with snow over here...

  3. That jacket was a great find, man 30 degrees days are not warm for me I at least need 70 . I have been wearing more gold than ever, so i have been drawn to gold accents as well. Thanks for stopping by.

    Xoxo,

  4. Lovely outfit, and a gorgeous skirt! That location is pretty amazing, too. Makes me think I should scout out some interesting urban locations, but I'm too self-conscious to take pictures where (OMG) people might see me! You look completely natural and relaxed, and lovely!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I'm finding I like either the background or the clothes in the photos to have bright color. Seems to make a stronger photo.

  16. I love your jacket! And I was just thinking, I've always leaned on the side of silver accents over gold...maybe (hopefully) that means that they go best with my hair and skin tone!

  17. What an uber cool jacket! Love the gold hardware!

  26. Found you via Google!
    I absolutely adore your look - the jacket is fabulous and it goes with your pencil shirt perfectly! Love the tights and the platforms, too...then you took off the coat to reveal a killer blouse! You totally got it goin' on!
    Even the background is cool...! Can't wait to see what's next!
