My outfit today is really bright. I recently purchased this coral jacket at a consignment store. I hesitated to buy it because it is so bright and the fabric has a sheen on it. I really do like it, but goodness, it wrinkles something awful and I didn't expect that. Usually I will crinkle up a bit of fabric on a garment to see if it wrinkles, but this time I didn't probably because I was so distracted by the QVC tag still being on it. I am seriously thinking of buying a steamer to remove wrinkles. I have an intense dislike of ironing and irons. Iron's seem to know that I don't like them and go out of their way to burn me or the item I am ironing. (For those of you who are Terminator fans, I think Skynet snuck in intelligent irons as the first step in machine world domination.)

I kept my jewelry to a minimum. I wore my Monogram necklace (not shown) and signature bracelets. I thought this outfit was bright enough to stand on its own.
My nails are one of my favorite bright red polishes, Sinful Colors - Sugar Sugar. I have a couple of nails on my right hand that have been peeling and breaking so I decided to try something different. I bought some Nailene glue on nails. I will have to wait until I remove them to really do a review on them. I do like them a lot as they look somewhat real and so far are not coming off. The perfect shape is a big clue to them not being real, but they do look lovely.
My dear husband is still trying to get adjusted to his new shift work schedule so I haven't had any photos taken of my outfits. I am still dealing with my knee issues. My family Doctor thinks I may have a torn meniscus so I have an appointment to see a specialist this week. I am hoping he will be able to help me without surgery.
On a side note, I thought I was experimenting with the new updated Blogger and ended up converting my blogs to the new template. I do not like the new template at all. When I was working I helped develop new software interfaces and did a lot of user testing. Programmers love to add new features which are often not what users want. Some of our programmers would accuse users of being Luddites and not like what the programmers gave them. Sometimes that was true, but more often than not it was that the new interface didn't provide what the users needed for how they used the tool. Okay, I will get off my soap box now. Just sayin' new is not always better.
