This week was full of challenges and surprises. It is a madhouse at work when we have a delivery to a client and issues are piling up. One of my kitties disappeared for 3 days and I thought she was hit by a car or something and I will never see her again. (she appeared this morning like nothing happened, naughty girl!) And if this is not enough our 11 year old car needs replacement ASAP now (so here I can say good bye to my NAS and new furniture for the deck this year ). In addition it was gloomy and rainy for the second week in a row- and quite cool until today. How to keep one's spirits up in such conditions? Playing dress up of course! :-)
pic 1 I wanted to wear these red booties and these wide leg trousers so the rest had to play along. I felt like almost neutral outfit except for shoes. The only thing I would change here is the belt: I tried a wide black belt in the evening and liked it much better
Danier leather blazer
Suzy Shier striped blouse
Express Editors trousers
pic 2 This outfit was a debut of this Zara blazer. I decided to return the pink one and keep the blue as it is more fun and a different style for me. I wish it was a bit longer but I hope it was not a complete disaster. I also became a bit adventurous to wear a tomato red bag with this sky blue blazer :-)

Paige straight leg jeans (my BF)
JCrew cream oxfords (I am totally in love with those - and my feet too!)
Gap relaxed white shirt
pic 3 I usually pick one item I want to wear and build the outfit around it. This time the slouchy and tapered trousers. I decided to tuck in the cross-over shirt for a more streamlined look with the jacket.

pic 4 This is my interpretation of blush and tomato red trend for spring: blushing peach and true red for my version. I could not decide which footwear to wear and in the end decided on those low tweed wedge pumps in grey. I bought these pumps so I have a pair of neutral shoes which go with everything thinking that grey color and this style are quite versatile and will go with almost everything. I was wrong - I hardly reach for those "safe" shoes and wear my stand out leopard flats, python booties and silver pumps much more often. I guess playing it safe does not play well with my style!

pic 5 Today was a first day of almost normal weather for May day and I decided to celebrate with wearing my white BF jeans for the first time this season. This "orange peel" marled Gap sweater felt like a perfect top for today. I wore it with semi-tuck but here is the un-tucked version as well - which one do you prefer?

Wish me luck tomorrow in car hunting - and happy Mother's day to all!
