- The camo skinnies have arrived!
- WIW to sit on the plane
- WIW to run errands
- Hot pink wing tips :-)
- I haven't worn this tunic in awhile...
- What a weekend!
- How I styled my shiny new oxford flats
- Dressing down a red suit jacket
- Styling ideas needed for these shoes!
- Basic black (with a little purple and gold thrown in)
Apparently I brought the cold with me. Anyhow, I have been trying to figure out how to make camo skinnies a bit more sophisticated -- and I think I found the right balance without losing the camo edge. I am sure you ladies will tell me how I did.
The peplum top is a wool blend from Elie Tahari
The camo skinnies are reversible! (Flip Side from Target -- thank you Kkards!)
The jacket is a beautiful espresso leather from Wilson's Leathers
And the shoes are Isabel Toledo for Payless.
I thought this top was a great find at Sears. The knit jersey is quite smooth and really soft to the touch very high quality and I paired it with my new oxfords and added a scarf for the subzero temps on the plane (pattern mix!) Have a great week!
The swelling is now gone -- I visited the doctor yesterday who informed me that it could have been a mild case of the mumps which was weakened due to my previous vaccination. I thought vaccination meant immune??? It was either that or an allergy -- I'll have to wait for the results of my tests before I know for sure.
Any hoo today's outfit was designed around the need to be warm. It was a gorgeously beautiful sunny day here but it was well below freezing this morning. Red makes me feel healthy and energetic. I love fire-engine red with ice blue such a nice juxtaposition. I just want spring-like temps.... I'll even take mid-forties!
Well -- I admitted last night that I was a card-carrying member of team wear. I got my new shoes in the mail and promptly solicited YLF for styling advice. This is what I came up with after all the great suggestions. (THANK YOU!) I was pretty happy with this outfit. I just wish I had some cropped trousers (note to self) because the slouchy hem was not quite what I was looking for but I'm satisfied with this first attempt.
Constructive feedback is always welcomed.
Today I decided to revive a great formula -- khaki's, striped tee and a jacket. This particular jacket is part of a suit (Tahari). I just liked how this outfit came off casual and polished. It was also a bit of a surprise that I'm wearing red white and blue but I don't look like a cliche.
Suggestions for other color combinations are appreciation.
Yep, I'm on team wear. I just opened the box that came in the mail today and in it were my NEW oxfords. I love the color and shine (color and shine are my stock in trade). So I need help trying to figure out how to work this into an outfit for a fairly conservative law office tomorrow. Any ideas???
Today was a great day and I am so glad I was dressed for it ;-) It sucks when you run into someone really impressive and you look completely unimpressive (I am so very glad that today was not that day).
I kept it simple this morning so getting dressed was a breeze. It's still cold here but on the bright side we have a whole extra hour of daylight so it's not dark by the time I get home. It's hard to feel like you have "the rest of the evening" ahead when it seem like you should be preparing for bed.
I think with the exception of the shoes (Land's End) and the belt (Ann Taylor) this entire outfit is from Kohl's go figure.
