Plaid Wrap and Faux Leather Leggings

For months I had been searching for the perfect cape wrap.  The only problem was that I did not know what I was searching for.  I spent a whole lot of time Googling "scarf with arm holes."  I had purchased blanket scarves and tried a bevy of wraps, but they were all missing those elusive arm holes.  A scarf or a wrap just wasn't doing the trick for me.  And by "trick", I mean staying on my body during any form of movement.  My other wraps looked great as long as I remained motionless.
I learned that vocabulary is the key to a fashion hunt.  
Luckily, New Jersey is experiencing one last blast of winter, so I've made some use out of my late season purchase.

Lilly Pulitzer January 2017 After Party Sale Haul

Lilly Pulitzer

I woke up early the morning of Lilly Pulitzer's After Party Sale to get in that virtual line.  I really need to learn that it's not necessary.  The line got stuck and I had to get to a meeting, so I wound up not being able to shop until lunchtime.  And I realize that my early morning scramble was in vein as there were plenty of sale goodies left with I finally got in.  AND...Lilly was a little tricky this year and was adding new items throughout the day!  So here is what I got...and what I call a whole lot of restraint.  I guess real restraint and responsibility would have been not to purchase anything and deposit that money into a savings account.  But, my savings account isn't florescent and patterned.

I am starting off the new year (in mid-January) with renewed commitment to this blog and comfortable footwear.  I've always been a fancy shoe girl, but lately I have started amassing a bit of a sneaker collection.  I do like the trend of glammed up sneakers.  I can wear shiny and sparkly things AND have my toes not bleed.  I would also be remiss if I didn't talk about the printed bomber trend that's everywhere.  I love that this badass silhouette now comes in floral.  The bomber jacket aspect makes me think I can have a weekend of partying at bars and concerts, but the floral reminds me I prefer quiet and cats.  It's the small things that are going to make 2017 for me.
