Blouse – Gap | Pants – Gap | Shoes – Lucky Brand via Marshall’s | Necklace – Accessories Palace in NYC | Belt – came with a top from The Limited | Jacket – c/o Holly Haley, independent CAbi consultant

Holly Haley, a friend of mine from way back, recently became a CAbi consultant.  She generously sent me this jacket because she thought I could pull off the unique color and style.

I admit, when I pulled a short-sleeved trench coat out of the box I was a bit stymied.  Perhaps a short-sleeved trench works in California (where Holly lives) but I didn’t know about Chicago.  But then I realized that for those few days we have when it’s 55 degrees in the morning and 80 by the time you leave the office a short sleeved trench is the perfect accessory.

And since today was one of those days, I took my inspiration from What I Wore and threw it on over a simple black and white outfit.

CAbi has some really cute options and their website even allows you to play virtual dress up!  Here are some of my favorite outfits I put together.

If you’re interested in shopping the CAbi catalog, contact Holly and she’ll get you set up!  Or, if enough Chicago-area people are interested I’m sure we could convince her to come out and do our own shopping party.

Until then, I’ll be figuring out new ways to wear my California-inspired jacket.
