I couldn’t wait to try this Pinterest Inspiration look 

as  I finally found a great red jean jacket.

I  am using a thrifted polk a dot

maxi dress for my version. 01954b0dff81254406778aab0a0ef46c

I  own some great red heeled sandals very much like the pinterest original, but that didn’t work for my

Mom on the Go type of day! 

I definitely will wear this later in the season without the black sweater and add the heels for a date night out look.

After all Red is my husband’s favorite color…

Can you believe in my youth I steered clear of red and thought it didn’t work for my coloring??

Today was so windy that I had to hold my jacket from blowing open. 

I bought three of these cropped 3/4 sleeved jean jackets, after all they are a classic and can be worn for all Seasons. 

I listened to the reviews that they run small and was concerned since my arms frequently are tight on jackets. 

I bought them in a size large, but I would have been fine with a medium.  

I already washed the 98% cotton 2% spandex jacket in hot water to shrink it and it worked! 

Now to do the same with this one and the hot pink one.

It was so much fun wearing this red jacket today. 

I am so glad I got over my fear of wearing red and indulged in this purchase.  

I also have been having fun these last three days of using sea salt spray in my hair for a more laid back look. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son was able to get his newly drilled bowling ball today..He is so happy to now have two of his very own in two different weights that he uses…

I am grateful to my brother for picking my son up after work and taking him to get the ball we had to leave yesterday for drilling. 

I am grateful for the fun phone conversation with my husband from his newly upgraded suite, an apology for the ten moths in his room last night.  

I am grateful for the  pictures of his trip on Facebook and seeing all his hard work at the gym these past 6 months in his shirtless picture on the beach.  (I really need to kick it into gear) 

I am grateful that my husband took my advice and bought some shirts in great Spring colors and by doing so encourage my youngest to do the same.. You’ve got to love Old Navy…

I am grateful for our planned trip next summer to Ireland with our two youngest and the joy I hear in my youngest’s voice as he spoke about it to my brother today.  I love that my sons will both have a year of anticipation just like my husband and I did leading up to our first Ireland trip.

ps…I agree…red looks great on you!

Don’t you just love when you can take an inspiration and make it yours? Great rendition,Tracey. I actually like the polka dots with it, and red jacket was an awesome find.

The polka dots are so fun! 🙂
