An Inspiration ~ What I Wore Wednesdays

I recently found the blog The Little Brown House and I’ve been inspired by Sharyl’s wardrobe and style.  Probably because I would wear the very same things!  I think her weekly feature entitled, “Not Your G-ma’s Wardrobe” says it all!  Here she is in one of her recent postings.


She really looks so put together all the time and I love that she finds a lot of her clothing at TJ Maxx {because I have one not far away!}.  So I made sure I went to TJ Maxx this weekend and went looking through the racks for some new light jackets and whatever else might catch my eye. 

I found this short jacket with rounded collar and 3/4 length sleeves.  I got a few bucks off because one side of the thread loop for the belt was not attached. Warning: blurry pictures ahead but I’m determined to show off these jackets!  A shaky handed person is not a good choice for self-portraits!


This one looks good without the belt as well, which is how I wore it when I ran out Sunday during my open house.  I thought this would work well with jeans and for the day  job.



I also found this longer one with ruffles going from the collar down and this really cool hem.  This one is also belted and could be a raincoat, too.



Love this hem!


I was hoping to catch the ruffles here, but I don’t think they show up in the photo very well.


These jackets will be replacing a couple of older jackets that need to go.  Time to put together a Goodwill box!

Okay.  I will try not to subject you to such eye crossing photos again, but I really was pleased with these purchases!  Next time I’ll try my mini-tripod and the timer on the camera.

Love your both your new jackets! They both look like they'd be perfect with jeans, like your showing, or dressed up a bit.

I'm anxious to check out Sharyl's blog. Thanks for sharing!

It's a great jacket! You can't have too many ruffles either. TJ Maxx is such a fun place to shop, along with Ross and Marshalls. Thanks for coming by to join my giveaway, I am off to find yours!
