Floppy Snake

Finally we have some non-rainy weather so I decided to wear something other than army boots.  It was also flu shot day, so I needed something with roll-uppable sleeves.

Pink Calico - Snake Floppy Paisley

This jacket has an interesting texture and print - its sort of snake-like, but is glittery too and catches the light with movement perfect for Visible Monday

I like the jacket's casual comfy roominess - great for layering other items underneath.  And it is quite soft - almost a faux suede.

I teamed it with a turtleneck tunic and a floppy sleeved print blouse.

I am thinking of adding small buttons with a loop to this blouse so it stays in place under jackets. It is on my refashion, mend, sewing to-do list, which seems to just grow and grow.

The shoes are a bit hard to see, but they are the 3 button slipon booties from Franco Sarto.

The other item in this outfit is this wonderful purse:

Pink Calico - La Diva for Town

The photo really does not do it justice. It's a wonderful rich brown colour with tones of burgundy - I just had to use it today.  The bag was super-cheap and some of the zipper pulls still had those little plastic protector thingys on them!

    1. Thanks Patti! Visible Monday is always the highlight of the week.

  2. Hey, Narda! First time visitor, and I'll be back. Love that your outfit is considered. Neat how you put all the pieces together. I'm always a fan of an edgy jacket, tights and booties, and I'm all admiration of the lady-like layers you put with them. Have a great week!

    1. Hi Janin, Thanks for visiting! I checked out your blog too - it's an interesting read, and I will visit again too.

  3. The jacket is really gorgeous! I have a weakness for glittery - shiny fabrics. It looks great with the patterned top underneath. The purse is of course very cute!

    1. Thanks! I love it too! It's so soft and comfy, and it was the shiny-ness that first caught my eye.
