These are recent pictures.  They were taken right before a major storm.  Knowing that we would be spending most of our upcoming days indoors, my boyfriend and I took a walk through downtown Sonoma.  During the walk, I raided a persimmon tree.  I bought some fresh, tree-ripened Hachiya persimmons from a fellow Sonoman.  It was nice to get out and enjoy the cool December temperatures (which felt more like fall).

I wore this exact outfit (minus the jeans) to work about a month or so ago.  The jeans I wore with it were darker, which I think looked better than these.  But I find these jeans to be much more comfortable because they have more stretch to them.  I though I'd point that out.  This is pretty much another "Wear to Work" ensemble.

Thank you to everyone that wished me a happy Thanksgiving and Christmas!  Your comments always make me smile :)

Hope you all have a happy and safe New Years!

Like Jackie O (Wear To Work)

Like Jackie O 1 Like Jackie O 2 Like Jacque O 3 Like Jackie O 4 Like Jackie O 5 Like Jackie O 6 Like Jackie O 7 Like Jackie O 8 Like Jackie O 9 Wearing:
Bebe origami dress (old)
Dior sunglasses
Pearl headband
Mac "Fresh Moroccan"
Burberry watch
Tory Burch "Kaitlin" pumps

This outfit reminded me of something Jackie O would have worn.  I hadn't realized it until I imported these pictures onto my desktop.  Instead of wearing pearls around my neck like she would have, I wore them on top my head in the form of this headband.

Anyway, I have a question for you.  As I mentioned in my last post, I have a lot of left over summer pictures.  Would you care to see them?  Or would you rather wait until I post outfits that are more season appropriate (with layers, capes, coats, rain boots, etc)?  I'm not sure if you care to see summer attire for the rest of this season or not.  Even though I can still get away with wearing some summer ish clothing at the moment.  I just want to know what my readers would prefer to see.  So let me know in the comments :)

If I end up posting all of my summer outfits, I'll mix it up with some recent winter wear as well.  I think that's the best option for this little "problem."  Too many outfit photos isn't really a bad thing, right?  Now I've just got to find the time to post them.

Hope you all have a great rest of your week!  Us Californians are currently getting a lot of rain.  There are flash flood warnings for my county.  Stay safe, Sonomans.  Don't get caught in the storm!

Lost 1 Lost 2 Lost 3 Lost 4 Lost 5Lost 6 Lost 7 Wearing:

Mac "Flat Out Fabulous" lipstick
Location: Sebastopol, Ca

I lost my favorite necklace.  Remember the gold cross necklace I always had hanging around my neck?  Yeah...that one.

It's been missing since August and now my bare neck feels naked.  Whenever I put together an outfit in the morning, it feels like something is missing.  This happens every morning.  I know it may seem like I'm being a little dramatic, but I've had that necklace for most of my life.  So when something I've had for that long disappears, it's hard to get used to.  Even if it's just a necklace.

Since I couldn't find it when I put this outfit together, I threw on a vintage replacement.  Hopefully it will only be a temporary replacement.

You can probably tell by the pictures that these ware not recent.  It's currently rainy...the complete opposite of a sun-shining day.  I literally have about 10 sets of outfit pictures that have yet to be posted.  They are all from this past Summer.   I'll try my very best to update you all with my recent outfits as well.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
