WIW on Date Night

This is what I wore on Valentine's Day for dinner. I thought green was a little unorthodox but I have been in love with emerald for the past year. The shirt is normally tunic length (not any more ;-)) It was designed to be belted. Before I am sure I would not have styled this top like this. Actually before I was a little confused about this top because it's not really structured. I bought it because I loved how it looked like a stained glass window (I spent a lot of time studying Gothic cathedrals in college). I am not sure how much time I have on this top (maybe a few weeks?) but it was comfortable because it's stretchy.

Let me know what you think. Feedback is always welcomed.

    You are gorgeous in this top and will convert the world to green for Valentines Day! And love the green and black bag too.

    You look lovely!  I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day.

    Great outfit and I love that bag!

  • Beth Ann replied 10 years ago

    Expert repurposing of that tunic!  Love the stain glass feel of the top --- prints like this are perfect for smoothing over an emerging bump.  I think you're looking a little more "architectural and arty" these days.  Perhaps your maternity wear will be a reflection of your earlier studies in art?  I could see you taking great inspiration from your art history books!

    Nothing wrong with being unconventiional!  Love that bag!

  • Ornella replied 10 years ago

    I had to laugh at stained windows. Basically, from now on visiting churches and cathedrals means not even they  are "safe" from thinking about them as styling inspiration :-)

    You look(ed) lovely in your top, matching bag and pretty lipstick :-)

    I cannot believe you are the height you said you are. I will never believe it until I meet you in person, because you always look so gorgeously tall in your photos. Yay for legs that go on forever. You looked sensational!

    Love the green on you - wear it while you can:)

  • Sara L. replied 10 years ago

    You look good and I really like how the green in your bag goes with the green in the shirt.  Based on Suz's comment, I'm going to have to go research your height because I've always assumed you were tall based on your photos.

    So pretty! Enjoy those date nights while you can!

    No wonder you love emerald, it looks stunning on you! Fabulous outfit, as always.

    Looks perfectly great and the colors are fresh and interesting. Waist is surrendered, but there is no tent at all. So this is a very good use, even if short-term, of this fit and length of top.
    You've achieved really lively  color and pattern and the perfect handbag, and everything fits well even if it isn't the same way you might have worn it before.

    You seem pretty good at this!

    Beth Ann - I think you're right. I am falling back on my art school aesthetic in these more relaxed days that seem to simultaneously speed by and drag on.

    Ornella - nothing is safe from becoming outfit inspiration in my book :-D

    Suz- I truly hope we meet in person one day. Reason one: I think you're a fabulous personality and reason two: (though not nearly as important) proving for once and for all I am only "tall" when I put on 4 inch heels :-)

    Sara L. - I will save you the trouble. I am only 5 feet and 5 inches tall. When I put on pumps I am somewhere between 5'7" and 5'9". This tall thing is an illusion ;-)

    Love the bag and you look very nice.

  • E replied 10 years ago

    How lovely, both your outfit & your inspiration! What about gothic cathedrals did you study?

  • Sarah A replied 10 years ago

    So... First off, CONGRATS! Very exciting news :)
    Secondly, 5'5"... no way!
    Thridly, you look sensational in the green here. Ill be looking to see aboot this style shift you are feeling. (I didnt have a chance to comment on your other thread, but the multiples I remember too. I only had the Target brand knockoffs though myself ;) )

    E- I studied the architecture, the structural elements (pointed arch, flying buttresses, tracery  etc. etc) and the iconography which got into the politics and impact of church architecture on medieval society.
