...but almost nothing went according to plan or worked like I envisioned it!
Another try with a lace midi pencil skirt. It looks pretty boring in the picture, isn't it? At least I have a piece of my front garden to add some interest here!

Still a pretty cool day so I decided to wear my booties once more - who knows, maybe the last time before fall... This is a light grey lurex tank I thrifted last week with the main intention to wear it like a vest. However I wanted to wear one of Angie's formulas that day (dress skirt and denim jacket) and need something light (because the jacket is dark) and sleeveless (because this jacket has tight sleeves). Itried to leave the top un-tucked but it did not look right to me.

Tried another formula that day - column of denim and bright jacket. Things could have not been any worse! It was supposed to be 21C so I thought I should be fine in A/C office in a blazer. Boy, it was hot even in a denim shirt alone. So as a result instead of wearing an outfit on the left I ended up wearing outfit on the left for the whole day - it looked pretty dull, didn't it?

I felt pretty well in this outfit but again it looks kind of blah in the picture. This is my BB shirt, I thought it is OK to wear this length with wide leg trousers - is it? The shirthas a very fine stripes and the light grey and silver lurex tank is a very low contrast with this shirt which I actually liked. Too bad it does not photograph well (at least with my photography skills)!

I was ready for hot weather today in my new coral dress - again in one of Angie's formulas! I liked this outfit the best from the whole week. I also put a skinny yellow belt but then I felt that it is too much with the scarf and removed it. I guess flat oxfords with this dress are not for everybody's liking but it felt right to me!
What do you think of this bag? It is Tommy Hilfiger and I have it for more than 5 years now. Last summer I did not use it even a single time.so I thought maybe it is time to retire it? However this morning it felt like the right bag for this outfit. What do you think - keep or toss?

And a bonus pic #6 - coral dress before and after alterations. The changes may be not very drastic but they make all the difference to me between feeling fab or drab in this dress!
Thanks for looking and as usual any suggestions and feedback are welcome.
Have a great weekend!
