I am heading off to pick up our new car (YAY! My old Buick survived until this day!) so this is a quick post. Hopefully with our car woes over I will have more time for the forum this coming week...
It was very warm day (even if rainy and overcast) so I braved a skirt sans hose for the first time. Everything in this outfit is from the last season or older but I hope it still reads modern?
Striped tee - Brooks Brothers
Bone slingbacks - Ron Hommerson
Nude clutch - boutique in Portugal
Midi flared skier - Spanners (consigned)
I bought these trousers last fall but did not get to wear them then because they are summer weight fabric. They supposed to be slim fit but I sized up to get a slouchy fit in them - and full length. They are quite OTT with mini-windowpane pattern and black tuxedo stripe so I tried to keep the rest of the outfit in the same colors and simple
Trousers - Long Tall Sally
Tux jacket - Banana Republic
Tee - Lord&Taylor via The Bay
Danier black satchel
Me Too red pumps
It was raining and gloomy for the second week in a row so I rebelled and decided to wear this sky blue Zara jacket to brighten my day. This is another piece which require a careful styling because of the striking color and style. I decided to wear "almost" a column of black with it. This silk shell is in a pattern of black and taupe and I may be crazy thinking it works with this blue but I quite liked it: somehow all black felt too dark here. These skinny pants are full length so I cuffed them to be cropped (remembering that Angie said this length of the jacket looks best with crops)
I tried the shell untucked and with a faux tuck on the side - any preferences?
Zara gathered shoulder jacket
Skinny black pants - Banana Republic
Halogen silk shell
J.Renee Tomlin pumps (Angie's pick)
Danier dove satchel
Cold! We woke up to a mere 3C that morning so this felt almost like winter again (I also wore a trench over this outfit and it was still chilly).
I tried to lighten the winter look with cream jeans, light booties and a bag though. Only in the middle of the day I realized that I have 2 snake patterns going on in this outfit - in the booties and in the jacket panel. I hope it was not too much!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend (and for Canadians a LONG weekend - YAY!)
