    Great outfit and best of all, I think I can replicate the look. You look very trim…are you still rising before the chickens and working out? xoxo

      hi donna!
      yes, i am up and at my workout before the sun rises. although they did add a 7am class which i much prefer over 5:30am. I’m feel great and before you know it i’ll be back in tip top shape!

    I always love camel, rich browns, and plaids–and I’m a sucker for the elbow patches. You look lovely.

    I have a sweater with elbow patches, and a jacket I always get compliments on–it just adds a nice touch. I hear you–Ralph Lauren lasts forever. I have a beautiful camel-colored suede RL vest that I realize is almost 20 years old, and people still comment on it and ask about where I got it. It’s so soft and it never gets old.

      i don’t know what it is about elbow patches, but if a sweater or shirt or jacket has them, well, it just might have to come home with me. it’s such a simple detail but it looks so chic!

    I really enjoy catching up with your blog on a daily basis. I must admit to being a bit lost in the wilderness of style (got lost along the way through motherhood and work and putting myself last) and I find your outfits give me the inspiration I need. Being the same age as yourself, I now realise I CAN wear that and not look like mutton dressed as lamb. It’s all in how it’s put together. Thank you.
