i’m wearing: striped top c/o cabi, willow & clay navy blazer found at nordstrom rack, paige denim skinnies also a nordstrom rack score, michael kors studded moccasins (similar), f21 necklace (old), nordstrom bracelet (also old), lorna bag c/o hobo and my classic winchester watch in rosegold c/o daniel wellington.

have you ever planned an outfit entirely around an accessory? i knew the second my new daniel wellington watch arrived that i wanted to wear this blazer with it. unfortunately the lighting is so off in these pics (seriously…can someone please tell me how to get good pics in gloomy weather already) that it looks like my “blues” don’t match very well. i promise this looked better in real life. oh well, i was just heading to my son’s two year dr appointment anyways. but at least now i have on a watch that works. too bad i still wasn’t on time. i will be late to my own funeral. that’s for sure.

p.s. daniel wellington is offering stylish housewife readers 15% off any purchase with code “stylish”! enjoy!!!

    Love the accessories – the watch and the necklace! But I also always love a blazer with stripes.

    That is one awesome watch. I love how it lies so flat yet stands out so much! (that may only possibly make sense in my head)

    LOVE that blazer!

    It sounds like you’ve got a white balance issue when shooting on a gloomy day. Switch the setting on your camera, shoot custom white balance, or tweak a bit on your computer. You’ve got a couple of good options to getting the pics JUST right! ; )

    Very preppy cool with the blazer! And love your necklace too. You look so fab going to the doctor. About the gloomy weather pics, is it the color that’s throwing you off? I thought in a previous post you said the “cloudy” setting was working for you. Anyways, what camera you use and maybe I can help πŸ™‚
