OOTD When Skies are Grey

It's been raining the last couple days, which is not uncommon in Sitka, Alaska, but I'm not complaining. When I'm planning my outfit of the day, I like to start with the jacket and plan the rest of the outfit around that.

This (faux) leather jacket is actually the same style of jacket I used in my last OOTD post, but in the color grey. I ordered it online from ASOS Curve during one of their sales, but it is from the New Look Inspire line, so this jacket (or one similar) may be available from either store, links are included at the bottom.

Under my jacket I'm wearing a black (and grey speckled), loose fit tank top, also from the New Look Inspire line at ASOS. It is a very thin, soft, comfortable jersey fabric. Because it's so thin, it can be a little bit sheer, so I usually wear it with a black cami underneath.


The jeans I'm wearing are medium wash skinny jeans from Torrid. I have a hard time finding skinny jeans that fit & flatter me, but I love this pair. In fact, I loved them so much I bought two pairs! Torrid jeans can be pricey, so I usually wait until they're having a sale, or a BOGO deal to buy them.


I don't wear heels very well, so when I'm looking for a pair of shoes that will give me a little height, I look for shoes with a thick heel. I recently ordered these boots online, they are the Hartman booties from Rampage, and I am in LOVE with them. They are (faux) leather, lace-up style boots, with a chunky 3" heel. They're extremely comfortable, and they also have zippers on the inner ankle, so they're very easy to wear.


In my last OOTD post, I mentioned the rings I wear on a regular basis are mostly from Silpada Jewelry. Silpada sells high-quality, sterling silver jewelry. I absolutely love their rings & earrings. Here I'm wearing four rings, three of which are from Silpada: the two rings on each of my index fingers and the silver ring on my left middle finger. The silver ring with the black stone that is on my right middle finger is from the brand Moda Designs, and I purchased it from Zulily. It's pretty, however, the same day I received the ring, the stone fell out. It was disappointing, but it wasn't anything superglue couldn't fix.
