Plaid and Leather Down on the Farm

Ack, running late today as the computer decided this would be the best night to act up. Yes, thank you.

My tattoo is starting to heal up nicely. Still, I'm in "lock and load" mode to keep everything on the upper half gentle.
I love that it's lighter in the mornings now, but I know it won't last long. Gah, winter months suck for pictures.

The jacket is a lovely plaid one that I've had for a few years - it was last worn in the October 2012 capsule (recap here), where I wore it twice (last time here, with these same booties!).
I've worn it layered under this leather vest before (here) - I like how it looks. Have you ever layered a jacket under something else? I last wore this leather vest layered over a blue satin blouse here in June (I got rid of the blouse - good colour, too shiny).

The skirt is a thin silk and it has barnyard scenes. I last wore it here in July with much frilliness (and I need to wear the Happy Wanderer skirt soon!).
I like how the jacket is lower in the back. Groovy, man.

The stuff:
My Coffee Kope Tiam booties by Fluevog, last worn here (a few outfits down) in August with my cowgirl dress. They are so comfy - I ran an errand in them today and they were awesome.

Light-as-a-feather earrings.

Jacket (Armor Jeans, thrifted), cami (Mexx, thrifted), vest (CAbi, thrifted), skirt (Gap, thrifted), boots (Coffee Kope Tiam, Fluevog), belt (Plum), spinner ring (Twang & Pearl), floral ring (vintage, Sarah Coventry), earrings (Adore Jewelry, local).


  1. Computers and technology always break at the worst possible moments!

    Love the layering in this outfit though, the jacket and vest are so nice with the skirt :)

  2. Now I would never have thought of putting a waistcoat over a jacket, Sheila - you are clever! Love the soft autumnal shades, and the fact that the red in the skirt and belt just gives it a boost. Gorgeous. xxxx

  3. Great jacket and the perfect boots, naturally! xo

  4. I love the barnyard every time you've worn it!! I like the look of the vest over the balzer!!

  5. I really like the fit of the jacket too - and I love the boots!

  6. I always love that vest on you. It reminds me of Zoe from Firefly - all space western! The Vogs only add to the look. Keep babying that new tatt! I can't wait until next month for my next one.

  7. I love the print on that gorgeous skirt!
