Weather and What We Wear

The weather can be so bossy this time of year.  Cold day, warm day, windy day, rainy day…I had an entire outfit planned for yesterday, but then we were surprised with a summery 70 degrees yesterday in St. Louis that demanded an outfit change.

Today, some strange cold front has moved in the area and the high temperature is in the 40s.  Summer wear one day and winter wear on another.

This is the nautical chic look I had planned for today:

Blazer—Calvin Klein via Ross, Top—Loft, Skirt—Dolce & Gabbana (swap)

Shoes—Tahari via Marshalls, Bag—Michael Kors via Macy’s

I just couldn’t wrap my head around wearing tights again though.  So, I tweaked the look a bit to sport it without tights.

Denim trouser—c/o Liz Claiborne for jcpenney

Shoes—Levity via DSW

By the way, have you shopped the Macy’s VIP sale (grab the VIP coupon).  It’s 20% off everything in-store and online (excluding watches and some things like that).

After contemplating purchasing the Michael Kors Hamilton tote for at least a year, I decided to buy it with a little encouragement from the 20% off discount.  A review of the bag will be coming soon.

I had been debating these two bags as my new carryall.  The Hamilton tote got the victory.

    I'm in the market for a leather tote, but need something super sturdy and reasonably priced.
