Burgundy sweater remix with burgundy booties

Today’s casual work outfit started out much more complicated, with me mentally trying to layer about three different things and just not feeling it. So I simplified my outfit to a long sweater + skinny jeans + ankle booties. And once I stepped into these gorgeous burgundy booties, all seemed right with this outfit. 😉

After I wore this outfit, I realized it’s essentially the same outfit that I wore for Valentine’s Day in 2015 — with the same tote bag! — but with different shoes. (And I added a scarf to my tote bag this time around.) My style is consistent, y’all. But I like that it demonstrates, yet again, how much a difference accessories and shoes can make, and that remixing = real life!

At the last minute, I added my new-to-me vintage plaid scarf to my tote bag as a fun accent. There’s a burgundy stripe in the plaid, so I’m staying true to my color-coordinated instincts. 😉

We took these photos by the Sounder train station near the Tacoma Dome, where I spied this little enclave of foliage. I love these bits of nature tucked away in urban landscapes!

I often ask Sam to take some action shots of me walking. It doesn’t work every time, but I loved how Sam captured my gait in this shot. I do like to walk with purpose, which the pic below definitely highlights.

    Very well coordinated Jen, always! Burgundy is a great color to wear, especially this time of the year. Love the action shots by the way! Those are not so easy to take but you and Sam pulled it off perfectly.

      LOL, yes, I do love to be well-coordinated 😉 My new smartphone doesn’t have a sports photo mode setting, but the clarity in general is better than my old phone, so we just try out different shots. Our “photo shoots” take a couple of minutes, 5 mins max. We generally end up with about 50 photos total, then I keep narrowing down until I find 7-8 pics for the blog post.

        You are! And yes, I can see the difference as your photos have a “crisper”, clearer look. I just got a new iPod this weekend and from what I can tell, my photos show up better with my new device. I can’t wait to try it for SIA!
        And that’s similar to what I do. My brother takes my SIA photos and it usually takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes. We take about 10 of them and I choose the best looking one out of the 10. Usually the others I am blinking or my collar or belt isn’t straight. I always go for the best!

    I love this outfit! One of my favorite colors, of course. It also looks like your earrings mirror the buttons on your sweater.

    Love, Mom
