My son went away for a week and took my camera with him. I tried to take pictures with my hubby's camera but did not have much success - hence no outfit post last week.:-( However my camera is back now so here we go!
pic #1 Blush and white
These are my Gap khaki pants from last year - and I think this is their last season. As much as I loved and wore them last summer I just do not feel the same love this year. I still like the color and slouchy vibe but I think the reason is the fabrication. Cotton khaki is too casual for my liking and not crisp enough. I think I will take them to my Utah hiking trip in September and then say good bye...but I would love similar style blush trousers in dressier fabrication!
I am also no thrilled with the whole outfit - this is what happens when you dress in the morning in a hurry. I should have not used a gold belt and silver tote here, somehow they do not play together...oh well!

Another outfit I was not 100% happy with and the reason is this skirt: it just does not fit well anymore! It bunches on the hips and on the back :-( After that day it went into Goodwill bag right away!
This is JCrew navy linen tee and I really like how easy it drapes. I have tried a new tucking technique with it here: grabbed the hem on the side, twisted a couple of times and tucked into the skirt. How does it look?
I have washed this Zara jacket for the first time and it was a success: I did not even have to iron it (except the lining). Gotta love white blazer which is machine washable!!!
pic #3 Blue again...
This day I was much happier.These mini-windowpane tuxedo trousers from Long Tall Sally are similar in style with Gap khakis but fabrication is dressier and holds better through the day (khaki got all wrinkled from sitting). Paired with indigo silk sweatshirt from Le Chateau (which looks more like cobalt in this light) and white blazer from Melanie Lyne.
pic #4 ...and more blue!
Even happier today...or was it because today is Friday? :-)
Anyway I like to pair light blue and navy together and throw some white in as well. I still like these white Editor trousers from Express but they are on the brink of being too big for comfort so I am wearing them now while I can. I like how they move and swish around - such a nice change from tight skinnies!
(sorry, could not resist to insert that picture in the middle just for fun pose)
So here was my week. As usual all comments and suggestions are very welcome.
Have a great weekend!
