Happy St Pats Day! We are doing what we lovingly refer to as "boiled dinner" at our house for family (my mom, twin sis and baby sis) and in honor of it I am wearing a "touch of green". Not full bore emerald green I'm sporting but very muted moss green sweater and floral scarf (with same soft muted green) that hubs bought for me on a trip to see his son. But I digress...
The epiphany which I referred to in the title is regarding a contentious beige jacket that I bought 2 years ago because it was a "good deal" and I thought i needed a jacket. Well I DID and indeed DO still need indoor jackets but this is what I have now realized is the fabled "soul sucking beige".
I am attempting to style it in some acceptable way before I goodwill or consign it.My own take on it is that this is an acceptable look but that is all. The jacket has small rounded lapels that kind of emphasize my smaller sloping shoulders. I think the length is ok for me.
I have nothing emotionally vested in this jacket so "let er rip"!
Also I have included the first pic to show you the difference between an sharp lapel and the subsequent rounded one which I don't find myself liking!
