Just 2 things

You know those days when you put on your clothes and you’re feeling blah?  The clothes look fine (or maybe they don’t), but you just aren’t feeling it?

Then there are the days where you feel like you have kicked it up a notch (thanks, Emeril). You know those days, right?

Well, there are two pieces in my wardrobe that make me feel pretty good or even cool when I wear them.  It’s my faux leather jacket and my animal print slip ons.

A couple of years ago, I was shopping with friends and they were hot on buying a leather or faux leather jacket.  I didn’t realize they were back in style. Not surprising as I am usually late to any fashion party 😉   When I saw the moto style jacket on them, I thought hmmm, maybe this is a trend I should jump on. So, I jumped and found myself this faux moto style jacket at Winners (the Canadian version of Marshalls).  I honestly wasn’t sure how often I would wear it, so I thought I’d test the waters before I invested the big bucks into a real leather jacket.  It was less than $50, so how could I refuse it?  Here we are two years later and I still have it.  I don’t wear it a lot, but when I do?  I feel pretty darn good in it.

My second feel good item?  The animal print shoes.  They are another purchase from Winners.  Steve Madden has made these easy to wear, comfortable and fashionable shoes and I absolutely love them.  They might just be my favourite pair.


It’s hard to believe that just these two pieces can change how I feel.  Do you have something in your closet that you absolutely love?  I’m curious to know what it is.

    YEAH for Winners! And happy to say we now have Marshalls as well! My fave “pick me up piece from there is my Betsy Johnson purse, black and white with a big, fay, pink leather bow on the side. Toss on some pink lip gloss and I’m a happy girl!

      Yes, I’m glad Marshalls is here as I am scoring some great finds at Marshalls. Still sad that Target left….

    I love the contrast of colour with the leopard shoes!

    Love that jacket! I really need to wear jackets more, I have a few nice ones. I also have a pair of leopard slip ons, aren’t they the best?!


    • C.K. May 14, 2016 / 8:04 am

      I’d wear those shoes everyday if I could!

    Such a great outfit! I also purchased a faux leather moto jacket last year and leopard print slip on sneakers. I got my jacket on clearance from target and it is ivory. And the sneakers are from Cato Fashions, also on clearance for around $7! I also don’t wear these often, but when I do I feel super cool and sassy! I haven’t paired them together yet, but I’m really liking your look. So next time, perhaps. Thank for the inspiration!

      Love that word sassy because that is definitely how I feel when I wear those 2 items together. I bet you will look great when you pair yours together!
      Thanks for stopping by!

    I have a pair of leopard slip ons like the ones you have that I love and need to replace. I used them with everything.

    Love the jacket and shoes! I love how sometimes a simple piece can bring a whole new attitude to an outfit!

    • C.K. May 18, 2016 / 10:33 am

      Yes- clothes with attitude – thanks for the visit!
