Birthday Outfit: Evelyn Dress & Ankle Boots

Today's my birthday. :-)  I wore this outfit on Sunday for church and then shopping with my sister, Jenn. (Later I changed to a more cozy outfit for the Superbowl and birthday celebrations- it'll be in a post tomorrow.) I love that this dress has both stripes and polka dots, plus a fun scoop in the back!

I have been stalking this jacket for months now and am pretty stoked to have it.  I noticed it when the Catherine Maladrino line dropped at Kohl's and it was $120, which was way too much for me for a faux-leather jacket.  I've kept an eye on it over the months as it dropped in price.  When I saw it went from $48 to $36 and I had a 30% off coupon and $20 in Kohl's cash, I jumped on it and ended up getting it for only $11.20!  (First purchase in February's budget!)  If you notice there's a lot of items in inventory, it sometimes pays to wait to see if the price drops, especially at a store like Kohl's.  I definitely see myself wearing this little jacket a bunch!
