Creative Style: A Jacket as a Shirt...

Creativity takes form in more ways than one.  Creativity is problem solving on the job.  It's selecting ways to make a rainy day a bit more special.  Creativity also means finding ways to wear treasured clothing pieces differently--more expressively.

Like my jean shirt?  It's a jacket, actually.  This piece is one I've had in my closet for a number of years, now.  I've always loved its rich look. Plus, it fits me perfectly; so, I've held on to it, and enjoyed wearing it over the years.

These pics were taken last week--on my 52nd birthday.  I'm standing outside the restaurant where Mark and I enjoyed dinner that evening.  Yes, I had a fabulous time savoring a celebratory dinner with my one and only.  But, I gotta admit... Another thing that totally rocked my night was the pride I took in creatively donning a fave item of clothing to dinner.
