Classic Style, Modern Look

Hello Wednesday and hallelujah, it’s finally spring!!!  My exciting week continues as I head to the dentist for the first time in awhile.  I’m trying a new one today.  We will see how it goes.

I (literally) lost a crown months ago so I’m sure that will be first on the tooth agenda.  Not looking forward to that at all.  Do we really need our back teeth anyway? ‘Cause I’m thinking pulling a tooth will be cheaper and less painful than replacing the gold crown I accidentally  threw away.

I did enjoy a brief girls’ day out yesterday for brunch and a little shopping.  We ate at Another Broken Egg and it was delicious.  I don’t mind sharing what I ate but don’t judge me.  I’m on spring break!

Yummy!

I love a modern take on a classic style.  Chanel created the iconic boucle jacket in 1954 and it has been worn a thousand different ways since then.  I gave the style an up to date feel by pairing with distressed jeans.

Mine is not quite Chanel, it’s from JCPenney (lol).  I am pleased with the feel and structure of the jacket but I should have ordered a small, rather than my normal medium.  The shoulders are padded and I don’t do padded.  Don’t get me wrong, you girls with normal shoulders look awesome with a little padding in that area.  Not me.  God graced me with linebacker shoulders so I shy away from anything that adds bulk.  It took me two years to get used to the cold shoulder trend!

I’m really considering cutting the lining and taking out the padding.  But, I’m afraid it will make the arms too long so I’m still contemplating what to do. Thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
