Caddy Chic – MNG by MANGO

My city has many landmarks that make it memorable. But perhaps none is more important, personally, to me than this very special golf course. You probably recognize it in most of my outfit photos in recent years. It’s where [houston] and I often take outfit shots before going to dinner or to before hanging out with friends or family.

So, to me, it’s a landmark. And in tribute to this special place, I dressed in a jaunty-yet-casual outfit. I often like to stay comfortable above all else, so this shawl collar cardigan by MNG by MANGO was the perfect touch over my inexpensive tissue-thin pink v-neck tee from Target. Touches of beige and brown leather repeat throughout the ensemble, for consistency.

Disclosure: This campaign is produced by Style Coalition and sponsored by jcpenney.

Sometimes it’s just better to be comfortable, and casual. This was perfect for our quick trip to pick up tex-mex for dinner and share a couple of beers at home talking about our day’s work in the hospital.

And now, for a very special announcement. During my style missions for my participation in the Style Coalition x MNG by MANGO campaign with jcpenney, once of the highlights of the partnership is the fabulous trip to Barcelona. I won’t go into details, because it’s unimportant, but I will not be able to make the trip to Barcelona next week. Sad face! Suffice it to say, there is a very, very good reason.

So! I am sending my very special friend, and partner-in-crime, the ever fabulous Grit & Glamour, in my stead. I know she is going to do a fabulous job reporting to us on the day’s events in Barcelona, and she will take plenty of pictures for us to enjoy here on PSS. So, in the coming weeks, make sure you check back often here on PSS to catch her guest posts!

And now, a word from Vahni, to you, PSS reader:

    I love your Fedora and aviators! You look like a spy or a movie star! That cardigan looks really cozy and the belt over it is awesome. Vahni is the perfect choice to represent you. Sorry you can’t go, but at least you can be confident the job will be well done by V!What type of watch are you wearing in the photo? It reminded me of my Fossil watch but I don’t think it is the same.
