Outfit for Under $30 - Military Jacket

Jacket: Sears $5.99
Dress: Old Navy $14.49
Belt: Sears $2.99
Shoes: Steve Madden (Thrifted) $1.99
Clutch: Thrifted $3.50
Bracelet: Gottschalks $0.50

Total: $29.46

This jacket is one of my very favorite garments, it's made a few appearances so far on the blog, but it works with everything in my closet!   And I might have a slight obsession with military-ish jackets.  Might.

I finally get to show of one of the only two pairs of shoes I've ever been able to thrift!  Steve Madden is one shoe brand that I really like, the shoes are always crazy comfy and they last and last, so I still remember how excited I was when I picked these up in the shoe bin at the thrift store. 

I've noticed that I've started wearing very little jewelry lately.  I use to be the girl who had earrings, necklace, bracelets and rings galore on (mentally I have old-lady-pile-the-jewelry-on-syndrome) but as of late, I wear maybe a bracelet and a ring, or just a necklace.  It is quite weird, I really don't know how or why that started happening. Hmm.
