My jacket is from Express (old) and my jeans are from American Eagle (last season).
Here's what the top looks like on it's own. It's a sheer gauze material, so I have a tank underneath. I planned on wearing this outfit to Illinois to see the kids, but it ended up being super hot and humid (90+ degrees) so I ended up wearing the top alone with denim shorts and sandals. I did take my denim jacket with me in case I needed it, but I never used it. It was just that dang hot!
The top is very cool and comfy because o the material. It also has an elastic waist, which I love because it helps camouflage my tummy. The only drawback I found was that it wrinkled a bit, which I didn't feel I could fix because if you iron it, you lose the gauzy effect of the material.
If this top looks familiar to you it's because I introduced it to you on THIS POST. It has the same braided trim as a dress I also purchased on clearance the same day.
I've been wanting to try the choker trend for awhile and I recently discovered I already had one hidden away in my jewelry box. How fun is that? This was the perfect top to wear a choker with because there is already detail in the neckline, so if I added a longer necklace it would only compete with the detail in the top. However, because the choker is so much higher than the detail in the top, it doesn't compete.
I do have a new bag to show you!!!!! I've wanted a burgundy bag for fall (it's about the only color of bag I did not have in my closet, that and pure red) so when I spotted this cute one I couldn't resist. Of course I bought it at JCP, where else? It's by Nicole, it was originally $75, and was on sale for 40% off. I then used a $10 off coupon so I got it for $35. Believe it or not, that was still more than I wanted to pay because I'm a real cheapskate, but I bought it anyway.
My shoes are also from JCP. I bought them last year, but they are still selling them this year.

If your wondering about the wood pile, I just love the interesting back drop it makes, especially with certain outfits like this one. This outfit is 'country style' to me, so what better place to photograph it?
As for the wood, every year my husband gets about $1000 worth of "trees" delivered to our house. Wood is our main heating source for our home. And if your wondering what a thousand dollars worth of trees looks like, here it is:
That's a lot of wood, eh? And it heats our house for one year. My husband than takes each "tree" and using a chainsaw, cuts it into shorter logs and stacks it up like what you see behind me in the fashion pictures above. Then throughout the winter he splits all those logs into smaller pieces for fires, they then dry outside for about year, then he moves them into our garage for storage and easy access to bring inside our home. The entire process is done by hand. He doesn't own a wood splinter.
Have a Great Day! Amy
