I still owe you a trip report but I got back from my vacation into a frying pan at work! My relaxed and refreshed post-vacation state lasted until Monday afternoon - not even a day long! I also have to work this weekend :-( The report is coming, I promise!
Anyway here is my WIW report for the first week back - and boy, what pleasure it is to NOT dress out of a single carry on!
Canada welcomed us back with snow and cold so this was definitely a sweater week!
Looking at the pictures I find that I dressed in mostly monochrome outfits with one added color in a single item - completely unintentional I must say.
pic 1 Mostly grey with a punch of orange
Cold day so cashmere sweater was very welcome. Paired with a Halogen grey skirt and layered over a thin wool grey tee. Also grey patterned hose and grey Franco Sarto boots.
pic 2 Black and white
Snow came at night so tall waterproof boots were in order. I was running late so this was my FFBO outfit.
Gap sweater, BR Martin skinny trousers, tall Blondo boots
pic 3 Cream and navy
That was on March 21 - the first official spring day and I decided to wear booties and light colors.
BR Monogram trousers, BR striped sweater, Tahari white shirt, SE Petty python booties.
pic 4 Purple and grey
Snow again. I planned to wear a skirt but in the last minute decided to go with skinnies and boots. I used my Sarah Pacini Pinterest pins as inspiration here - hope it worked.
Purple tunic - Le Chateau, grey cardigan - Gap, greyMartin trousers - BR, Franco Sarto boots, snakeskin belt from a discount store.
As usual all comments and suggestions are welcome.
Have a great weekend!

MsMary replied 6 years agoBeauty and elegance times four!
#4, especially, has me swooning with delight! LOVE!!!
Liz A. replied 6 years agowow... very chic! i'm loving the first outfit.
Mo replied 6 years agoThese are all great, especially #4. I also wear neutrals with sometimes one pop of color, but it's completely on purpose. I can't handle more than one bright at a time lol.
TraceyLiz65 replied 6 years agoMy favorite is #4, that purple is amazing on you! I also like outfit #1 and the color combo of the grey with orange.
Eliza replied 6 years agoLike them all. Two and four really have that Sveta wow factor. The perfect fit of your boots takes great outfits to the next level.
Ingunn replied 6 years agoI know how it is in the frying pan - sigh! Good luck with the weekend catch up. I love all outfits, but #4 is my favorite if I must choose. You look so effortless chic in all of these.
O replied 6 years agoSveta, Sveta, Sveta... this is exactly why we miss you when you disappear. What a perfect round. Clever, fantastic combinations which you wear so effortlessly; fab individual pieces which always look new. Wonderful. I, of course, want to copy everything but before that I have to steal everything (especially your BF ;-) )
I'm sorry to hear the work had swallowed you, but I hope the batteries have been recharged enough to sail through the transition back to work.
replied 6 years agoLove all four outfits. You look great and I am sorry work has been crazy!
Krista replied 6 years agoWelcome back, Sveta! These outfits are fab fab fab. #1 and #4 are my faves. I can't believe those boots are Franco Sarto - I love that brand but I haven't seen that style. Are they a recent purchase? They are a perfect neutral boot!
Thistle replied 6 years agoAll four outfits are so fab, Sveta. I am really loving 2 and 4. And welcome home!! Sorry Canada's weather is less than inviting.
marianna replied 6 years agoWow, these outfits are super. So simplistic yet chic and strong. Love!
Liz A. replied 6 years agoFranco Sarto makes beautiful shoes but they seem to run narrow to me. And I have narrow feet!
Angie replied 6 years agoSveta, I have missed you so much! I can't wait to hear about your trip :)
I made it past precisely one outfit before I had to faint from your insatiable fabness. That would be #1. That's how to de-bombshell a pencil with rugby stripes. WOW!
Day Vies replied 6 years agoSorry about the frying pan feeling :-( but you look so chic and fashionable. I love them all but #1 and #3 are my favorites. I love the pop of orange with the gray in #1 I also love the proportions and texture with the neutral tall boots. #3 is definitely androgynous chic and I love it with stripes. The snake print details add texture and the white trousers just say ahhhh -- refreshing and spring. Marking for copying and inspiration:-)
Kyle replied 6 years agoYou look like a long cool drink of water in outfit 4. Layered winter fabness. One of your best.
Raisin replied 6 years agoWelcome back! Canada missed you! You look great in all of these, I especially adore 2. Have fun using your whole wardrobe again!
Debora replied 6 years agoWelcome back, Sveta. All fabulous post-vacation outfits! I especially love #1 and #4. Looking forward to hearing about your trip when things calm down. We missed you!
Lyn D. replied 6 years agoHi Sveta. Adore the grey and orange outfit in pic #1 especially!
The grey hose are such an interesting addition of texture, and that skirt looks to fit to perfection.
Transcona Shannon replied 6 years agoWelcome home you gorgeous woman! These outfits are stellar - every.single.one.
#1 and #4 in particular have me positively swooning...
replied 6 years agoHooray, a Sveta post! I have really missed seeing your style. I love all these!
christy replied 6 years agoSveta, as always I love all of your outfits and cannot pick a favorite. #2 keeps catching my eye - mostly because it's so simple and yet still perfect.
Beth Ann replied 6 years agoWe've missed you, Sveta! You've certainly attacked a difficult week with top of line style. Brava! I'm particularly partial to #1. Love the color pop and the boots.
BTW --- You look taller. Did you grow on vacation? Change your camera placement? lol
Joy replied 6 years agoYou look fantastic! I'm living out of a duffle out of a carryon in order to fit luggage into a station locker on a side trip. Right now I'd like to toss everything . It will be so good to see my closet again.
the first outfit is my favorite.
Sveta replied 6 years agoAt last I am off the weekend work and can reply on your lovely comments.
Thank you so much for them, they really made my working weekend day a bit easier.
Krista, these grey boots are Franco Sarto. I bought then in the fall of 2010 and they were my favorite tall boots for 2 seasons. They also came in black but it is this grey color which made them so special.
Liz, I also did not have much luck with Franco Sarto brand because my feet are on the wider side but these boots are very generous in size. Ideally I would need to go 1/2 size down in them but they did not come in half sizes so I had to add inserts.
Angie, I missed you too! The trip report is coming, I promise. I just have to go through 5000 pictures my hubby took...:-(
Beth Ann, I hope you are wrong - I cannot afford to get taller, I have troubles finding long enough clothes already!:-)
Joy, I get what you mean so well! I was not in a hurry to launder all my trip clothes because I don't want to see any of them for a while - even my favorite slouchy trousers!
Scarlet replied 6 years agoAh, I see how well those booties work on you (3)! Great to have the visual. Your first outfit is very striking, but for some reason I am loving the chic simplicity of 2. I Iike 4 as well.
Sveta replied 6 years agoScarlet, I hope you keep the pythons. I find the pattern striking but not loud. I have quite a few outfits with them in my YLF blog - with full length pants, cropped or rolled up jeans and skirts. I LOVE these booties!
shevia replied 6 years agoEyes popping out! All four are so stylish and interesting and showcase your stunning good looks!
rae replied 6 years agoBig love! Especially the one with the orange sweater and patterned tights. Summer hasen't even happened yet and you have me longing for Fall again! I cannot wait to hear about the trip. :D
