For Reasons That Elude Me...

...I've decided to participate in Visible Monday once again. I'd find it it ironic that reason eludes Elusive Laurie, but I regularly feel like I have no idea what's going on. This is just more of the same. 

Last week I discovered that the consignment shop near my workplace was going out of business. As a result, this jacket was marked way down. I wasn't sure what I'd find to wear with it, but for five dollars I knew I would figure something out. Hubby took these pictures on a rare sunny day after a walk and a lunch date. 

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other visible women at Not Dead Yet Style


  1. Thanks for coming back to Visible Monday! No reasoning is required, actually -- it's nice to "see" you in your new jacket, enjoying a day out : >

  2. Glad to see you back. Going out to lunch with the Huz is one of my favorite things, too.
    I see that jacket with a dark pencil skirt, similar scarf, tights and cute boots ... maybe with a heel, on the dressy side?

  3. Thank you Patti! I'm so glad I chose to participate. Sometimes it's good to do things just for the heck of it!

  4. Thank you Jan! I had gone to the consignment shop where I bought the jacket to look for a black pencil skirt. No luck with that, but I got two jackets, a "non-pencil" black skirt (which may make an appearance once I figure out what to wear with it) and a belt for under $30. Score!

  5. Laurie, you look lovely! It is so cool being able to see the Laurie behind Elusive Onions. I meant to comment on your earlier "coming out" too :-)

    And the jacket is awesome--you could style it in lots of ways to show it off.

  6. Thank you Rosiecat! Things are shifting here. I don't know where I'll end up, the process is more than a little frightening, but I'm determined to have fun while I muddle through. Your kind words mean the world to me!
