Weecap: Leggings, Sequin Jacket, Leggings

President's Day Weekend in which Gracey wears leggings, does some minor thrifting, goes dancing in a vintage sequin jacket, sleeps late and wears more leggings to do absolutely nothing.

Saturday, 2/19/11:

Saturday I ran some errands: banking and thrifting mostly.  I wore grey leggings (Target), a black sweater dress (Macy's), a red (I know it looks orange, but it's red) scarf (Macy's) and my cap-toe Born boots (Nordstrom).  It was sunny, but cold, so I topped it off with a grey/black vintage coat.

Saturday Night, 2/19/11:

This is what I wore on Saturday night I went out for drinks and then dancing with my friend, Mary, and some of her friends.  It was a pretty simple outfit - skinny jeans (Flirt, Old Navy), black tee (Target) and black wedges (Vince Camuto via Ideeli), but I increased the interest with my vintage black sequin jacket (gifted from my mom) and these amazing earrings.  They are the "Hooded Wonder" earrings from Betsy and Iya, made by local Portland artist Betsy Cross, and if you're interested you can find your own at her Etsy shop.  The ring is from Nordstrom and the clutch is from a little boutique on NW 23rd in Portland, called Galore.

It was great to catch up with Mary; she works in a different building now,  so I don't get to see her regularly.  And we had a lot of fun at the club; it was a good crowd and I was afforded ample opportunity to yell "Jersey Turnpike" while watching people dance.  The only downside was that we didn't know a lot of the songs the DJ was playing - I guess I'm getting old...

Sunday, 2/20/11: Sorry, no outfit pics.  I didn't actually leave the house.  I cleaned up a little, hung out with my nephews and just relaxed.

Monday, 2/21/11:

I didn't do much today, either.  Some laundry, a little grocery shopping and that was about it.  It was a very low-key day and my outfit is appropriately low-key.  Black leggings (Hue via Nordstrom), raspberry skirt (Target), raspberry long-sleeve tee (Gap), black sweater (Jones New York via Ross), black slouch boots (Chinese Laundry via Piperlime) and multi-colored scarf (v. old via ???).

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  And thank you all for your suggestions regarding my brown slacks - I've definitely got some ideas now.
