CONTRASTS

IN THE MID-WESTERN PART OF THE U.S. THE SEASONS ARE SEVERE. THE SUMMER'S ARE HOT AND STICKY, WHILE THE WINTER FREEZES YOU TO THE BONE. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ONE TO WISH MYSELF AWAY DURING THE SEVERE MONTHS. I USED TO LONG FOR SEATTLE IN THE SUMMER (During my grunge days ) AND CALIFORNIA ( during the long, dark winter months ). 
AS I AGE, THE IRONY ISN'T LOST ON ME, AS I WISH FOR THE WARMTH OF YOUTH AND ALSO THE 'FIRMNESS' ;)  ~  BUT WITH AGE COMES WISDOM AND THE COMFORT OF KNOWING WHO I AM AND THAT WITHOUT 'CONTRAST' IT WOULD BE A VERY DULL WORLD :)
WHICH KIND OF GOES WITH THE OUTFIT TODAY! A SUMMER SKIRT ON THE BOTTOM - WINTER WEAR ON THE TOP :)  ~ LETTING GO ALWAYS TAKES TIME .....
attire:
Jacket: Sears,clx,old. - Sweater: thrifted.
Skirt: Apostrophe, Sears,clx. - Scarf: thrifted.
Beret: thrifted.  Pocket watch: thrifted, - Clock pendant: thrifted.
Boots: very old ;) - Belt: F 21.
Reading Glasses: Toko Baru, Cincinnati.

Your outfit would be perfect in South Texas! Since we have hot weather one day...cold weather the next...hot..cold..hot...cold etc. This outfit would work on any fall day! It goes so well. I love the jacket, belt, and pocket watch!

Yay! I love your military jacket! I think the darker, contrasting green underneath it is a wonderful mix, too!

P.S. The close up pictures of your face are gorgeous my dear!

Reva--the jacket is too good! especially with THIS skirt.

What a fresh look. Small reminders of summer with the tiered long skirt, but getting your warm on in that fab military inspired jacket and striped scarf. Who took the pic of the pocket watch? What a GREAT photo!
