Brown Spring Jacket

Hello!  I'm back from a wonderful Easter weekend in Milwaukee, hometown.  Today's fashion photos were taken in my old neighborhood...Bay View... in front of the historic Avalon Theatre.  I'm going to share more about our fun weekend and this beautiful theatre in Wednesday's Travel post.  You will also see more of this outfit then too!

If you remember Friday's fashion post, I wore my Blush Spring Jacket and talked about how I have a plethora of light weight jackets that I rarely use because they are not practical for my climate.  But I keep buying them anyway because I get great deals on them, and, well, they are so darn cute I can't resist. :)

I decided to try and cycle through my jacket collection and wear each jacket at least once before the weather gets to warm.  The one I have on in these pictures is my brown faux leather jacket by Guess that I picked up at T.J. Maxx a few seasons ago.  The last time I showed it to you was in 2013 in THIS POST.

 It was in the upper forties/lower fifties when these pictures were taken.  For us Wisconsinites...that's a warm winter/spring day.  I know a lot of my southern blogging friends would be donning knit scarves, mittens, and parkas in that weather, but most of us here shed our coats when the temps hit those highs in spring!

 This is the time of year I actually use scarves the most...not winter.  I don't feel I need a scarf too often in winter because my coat zips right up to my face and I usually have a bulky sweater on.  But in the spring or fall when the temperatures fluctuate so much, I depend on scarves for that extra layer of warmth and also because I can put them on and take them off so easily.

My scarf has a tribal print on it and was purchased at Forever 21 several years ago.  It's one of my favorite scarves and gets a lot of use!

 I wore brown/gold half hoop crystal earrings (old.  JCP).

My purse is by London Fog, purchased at Stein Mart and it was a birthday gift from my daughter last fall.

I played off the print and colors in my outfit, and wore a multi-strand, multi-colored bracelet on my wrist.

My shoes are from Francesca's (old).  These are one of my favorite pairs of booties that I own.  But if you don't like to attract attention, these booties are not for you.  Every time I wear them, people comment on them.  All good things though!  They are just very unique, so women notice them.

I have worn them without socks many times, but this day I chose to wear socks for comfort reasons.
I picked a white sock so they'd be a bit less noticeable and blend in with the shoe more.

 I wore a white peplum top from J.C. Penney under my jacket (Last scene HERE).


 My bottoms are Kut from the Kloth distressed boyfriend jeans from Stitch Fix.
