Stripes of a Different Color



Hello Ladies

You have seen a fair amount of color on me lately, so I decided on a print and some neutrals.







Still hot outside, I wanted to show you my Betsey Johnson jacket. Today, we went to a new place for enjoying some wine called The Cottage. It is just that, looks like you walk into a cottage or little vacation rental. Filled with couches, pillows, and decorated to make you feel at home, I loved the decor and that it was nice to see a new place.

We took my pups and there tails were wagging up a storm, as they love to look outside the window as we get to our destination. They were so excited to see a new place, and on the  water made it even better.

Since it was warm, I took of the detailed coat, and am wearing a lace navy top from Ann Taylor. I paired it with this zebra print, which initially took me a bit to warm up to. Love it now, unique and rare, just like each of us, huh?

I added bits of color with my bold blue hoop earrings and my Kate Spade bag.

Hope you have a great week

Jess xo
